Katherine, or Kat as she liked to be called, was my first college roommate. She taught me that you should never trust a roommate, that you need to be on your toes constantly with your live-in friend, and that just because someone is nice to your face, doesn’t mean they’re nice when you aren’t looking. The first time I slept a solid fifteen hours without waking was after my first fight with Kat. I finally escaped her, only to have my new off-campus roommate bring her home as his newest friend. I moved- again- shortly after. I don’t hate many people, but she’s one of them. She made me feel small.
