“Mom,” Josiah said after spending hours completing scholarship applications and emailing forms to the administration office, “can you come read over this?” He hasn’t even officially graduated from high school yet, and I already know that college is stressful. Finding the right one, filling out all the paperwork, applying for scholarships. It is serious business.
“What is this?” I asked as I sat down at his computer.
“It’s called Roomsync, and it’s supposed to help people find roommates.”
Here is what he wrote:
ABOUT ME: I am a drummer, but I know how to keep quiet and not annoy people with it. I tend to have lots of friends, but I don’t usually hang out with them. I’m from Des Moines, Iowa and, therefore, I know a lot about corn. I can’t juggle or do a backflip, but I can do at least 1 pull-up on any given day. I have a good sense of humor and am fluent in sarcasm. I’m pretty smart, but I’m friends with geniuses and dummies alike. I’m a strong Christian and am very excited to attend Cedarville. After I wrote this I went back to make sure I capitalized and punctuated everything correctly. After that I had my mommy double check it.
WHAT I WANT IN A ROOMMATE: Ideally my perfect roommate would be Morgan Freeman, but I doubt he has any plans to go to college at this point.
I’ve got to admit, I’m pretty excited to meet whoever ends up being his roommate.
