@GeeDee215 I think the good roomie turned out OK too.
@GeeDee215 But. She resurfaced in my home town years later. She'd been through some dark shit. We made peace. She got her life together, fought tooth & nail to make a better life. Had kids, went to school, and is now studying for her PHD abroad. She's still my bff.
@GeeDee215 She got an awful boyfriend, started "borrowing" my car to go buy dope in the bigger city 50 miles away, couldn't pay rent, ect. I had to kick her out. She went missing for YEARS. I thought she was dead.
@GeeDee215 Bff was like, don't worry, I'll pay the rent. She gets a barista job, then jumps headlong into heroin addiction. A good friend & former addict said he'd never seen someone work so hard to get a habit (this was late 90's).
@GeeDee215 I had a great roomie. Kind, quiet, studious. Then my BFF had a crisis, her life fell apart & I brought her to live (temporarily) w/ us. I went home for winter break & she filled the apartment with Florida gutter punks, who broke stuff, stole stuff & scared away the good roomie...
