A living nightmare - July 22nd 2016, 03:47 AM

I'm going into my second year at college this fall and returning to live on campus. My first year I had a terrible roommate who I could not stand. It got so bad that I think she's the only the person whom I've ever truly hated. Anyway, I was all set up to live with one of my best friends for our second year, we signed up together and everything but at the last second she pulled out and left me alone. I talked to my friend and she offered the open space in her room but her other roommate doesn't want to live with me, meaning even if I try to appeal to housing she can probably override me. So my situation now is I'm going to get stuck with a random stranger.

I CAN. NOT live with someone I do not know. My freshmen roommate I met at orientation and we hit it off, so I knew her. She may have ended up annoying but I still knew her. Now, I won't know who they're sticking me with. It's college (I go to a kinda known party school) so I'm terrified I'll get stuck with someone who sneaks in alcohol or pot, parties a lot, has their partner over, etc. Basicslly none of the things I do but could get in trouble for.

I am already freaking out. Like, barely holding it together freaking out. I hesitate to say panic attack because I've never had one before but the thought of living with a complete stranger scares the living hell out of me. At orientation I was supposed to room with a stranger but when I got in the room I saw they had a weapon (huge knife) on them so I got out fast. What if that happens again? I've heard stories of people's roommates almost killing them or assaulting them for touching their stuff on this campus.

I have the worst luck with roommates. Nothing ever goes my way and it seems I'll never have a good housing expirence. Three times I've delt with roommates and three times it has backfired in my face. I'm about to like burst into tears I cannot do it. All my friends are living with their friends and are having the times of their lives meanwhile I'm stuck in another rut. I just don't feel safe sharing my living space with a compete stranger.

Why does this always happen to me? Why do I have the worst damn luck? I'm so upset and afraid and just ugggggggg. I was so afraid of this happening and now it's happening and I don't know what to do.
