The Long-Lost Roomate

So my mom and I bought this book called 642 Things to Write About and one for the prompts is "The Long-Lost Roommate." Since I will be reunited with my roommate Makenzie next Monday I thought that was a perfect blog prompt. So here is the story of Makenzie Curtis and me.

It all started last April while I was at the Beach with my lacrosse team. I was anxiously awaiting picking where I was to live in a few months and to find out who my roommate would be. I quickly picked a room and the immediately began stalking my roommate. Makenzie Curtis. Normal enough name. Then I began to look at her pictures. Which now that I look at them I honestly don't know what made me so scared of her. But I freaked out and thought she was the worst ever and traded roommates. But then the new roommate didn't have a facebook..I decided that was worse. So I switched back and hoped for the best. Which turned out to be the smartest decision ever. 

So then our first meeting. I was awkward and shy. I was in the Cannon Center (our cafeteria) with my mom and my Aunt Sallie and I saw Kenzie getting salad. I whispered, " I think that's my roommate.." My mom and Aunt immediately said, "Well get up and say hello!" But I was too scared. They threatened to get up and say hello for me so then before they got up first I hesitantly got up and quietly said, "Hey, Makenzie? I think I'm your roommate.."With complete confidence she put a huge smile on her face and almost yelled, "Annie! Hey!!" and then she bent down to give me a big hug. We continued to have an awkward lunch together thanks to me. Later Kenzie told me that she was so confused because from her stalking she thought I would be this bubbly almost annoying girl who couldn't stop talking. She later found out that was pretty accurate. 

After our awkward lunch the rest is pretty much history. We remember there was a moment where my walls came crashing down and we became instant best friends but we can remember it. I'm pretty sure it was some night when it was late and I was tired and just became weird. It happens. 

Now as we get closer and closer to our Roommate Reunion I cannot wait for all our late-night giggles, crazy adventures, and most of all her whit. Seriously when we are about to go to bed, we get crazy. These next few pictures can only begin to explain how crazy. Man, I love this girl. The world will be a happier place when we are together. 

Love you Kenzie. <3
