My New Roomie

So the agency asked me if I would mind moving into another model's apartment because the one I was in otherwise would be packed with FOUR girls which would have been ridiculously tight. I was super annoyed at first, thinking about how much it was going to suck packing up ALL my stuff and then moving.

But now I am SO glad I did! My new apartment is right across the street from the agency, 2 second walk from the metro, and my new roomie is amazing! Her name is Erika, and she's 20 years old from Canada and I love love love her. We share a bedroom and joke that we're like a married couple because our room is so small and there is only a foot and a half of room between our beds so it's a good thing we get along lol.

I love the Canadians and the Australians that I've met here because they are most like people in the states. We're loud, sometimes obnoxious, boisterous and fun. And it's not that Europeans or Asians or anyone else isn't like this, it's just that I feel our cultures are the most similar so we share the same sense of humor and laugh at the same stuff and are just generally more on the same page if this makes sense. More in common. And I'm sure English as a first language helps too because we can talk and talk and talk and don't have to worry about slowing down our speech or using simpler language.

Anyways, Erika is great. Here are some pics from our last week together:

She's so cute

Heh. I love this pic.

This wine bottle was not opening. We even took it down stairs to see if our doorman could open it, which he could not.

We went bowling the other night. A friend has a two lane bowling alley in his apartment cool.

We went to IKEA and decked out our room! We bought mirrors and flowers and candles and lights for our room. lol it's cute.

Yayy! I'm so glad you have an awesome roommate and are having fun and no longer lonely!! I'm jealous of that bowling alley. Imagine if one of us had a bowling alley in our house. We would do nothing else!

Yeah!! I'm so happy you have a fun roommate who speaks I'm glad you are having fun and have someone you can relate to. I'm really jealous since right now I have 1.8693 million papers to right, but it's snowing so it's not all bad. Love!
