A few years ago I decided to get roommates.... between all the bills within 3 months they owed me $3,000 each I was working 80 hrs. a week to help pay off my car and instead I paid the deposits for the rents and 2 more months of rent along with gas, power, and internet.... And when I put in my 30day notice they would wake me up to call me a slut and a bitch and threaten to punch me in the face and stuff like that and they would also text me during work doing the same thing. I took them to court, won and I haven't seen a cent because with how the courts are set up... So I wasted more money to win money I will never see... Also note I was the only female and my roommates were both men. I will never get a roommate again. But I regret for how I became after that. I am a Nazi with money now. I won't even lend $5 unless I really trust the person, which might be 4 people.

I am willing to take your questionable women if you do not want them.

Living With Strangers
I've known this girl for like 7 years now and we are really close. We've lived together for 5 years at that point. I made the mistake of living with strangers twice (although it was totally her fault for suggesting *cough*).

1. We were both short on money and wanted something close to the college campus. So we chose to stay in a house with some randoms. The rent was pretty cheap, probably only $400ish per person every month but it was hell and that made up for the $200 we save otherwise. There were 4 others in the house, all of whom were disgustingly messy. Nobody took out the trash or cleaned. The landlord hired a cleaning service and the house got dirty the very next day. There was a psycho Korean girl there who, for some reason, seemed to hate us both. She would steal my things. I overlooked it for a few months due to the cheap, replaceable stuff that went missing but when she started stealing or throwing away my antique kitchenware, I exploded and we moved out. I swear, I never once did anything bad to her, I am very clean, and I even helped her make dinner and stuff sometimes. Psycho b****. I was surprised my grandma didn't get angry since the kitchenware is hers and she values things like that a lot. I was still really angry, though. Still am, actually.

2. Again, a house. This time, we had 2 other friends with us who changed because they got too involved in some frat and started turning all ghetto and rude on us. They eventually moved out and we had to replace them, so we got 2 strangers. Worse idea ever. Of course, they never cleaned. One tried to steal the TV, another never paid rent on time and her excuse was that she had to go to a mental asylum. I refused to let them in when they suddenly appeared after 2 months of mysterious absence. They called the police on me and I had to open the door and they took their things and left. The officer told me I was being 'shady' for not letting them in and I got really angry so he listened to what I had to say and informed me it is still not allowed for us to lock them out since they were entitled to their own possessions and that the debt would have to be settled another way. The landlord was pissed, too. I would be, too. We apologized and he said it wasn't out fault. I ended up sharing one room with my girl friend to save money for a bit. We eventually renewed the lease but it was just us two in the house for the following year. But it was a good year since we only used like...one room and the rest of the house had laminated wooden floors. We did have our own separate bedrooms but we drank a lot and went to use her room's TV for movies so we essentially only used one room. Crazy party year.

^probably one or more of these distinct possibilities:

1. She's really dumb.
2. He finds her unattractive.
3. She comes with heavy emotional baggage.
4. She's psychotic.
5. She's already involved with someone else.

My sole regret in life is my learning curve.

My parents offered me the smart way when I was younger. I decided that since I had it all figured out, I would do things my way. Twenty four years later I finally see it from their perspective. I did not in fact, have it all figured out.

I fell for the age old adage "Quick kids, move out now, while you still know everything!"

For some people it's "My way or the highway." In my case it has always been "The hard way or no way."

In spite of that, I also realize that every single decision I have made, for better or worse, I made on my own. I have discovered that accepting help doesn't make you weak. It makes you human. It only took me forty years. Give or take a few months...

Wow I think I'll listen to this and take notes *writes down*

If you don't mind me asking what is the "smart way" ?

Simply stated, work smarter. Not harder. A recurring theme I heard over and over again. From my parents, teachers, role models, and friends. My three sisters chose that path. I chose the hard way. And it has made me the person I am today. That being said, I am finally considering the switch from work harder to work smarter.

I don't think I regret anything since becoming an adult. If you asked me if I've made mistakes..."Hellz Yeah!"' I just don't think I actually have regrets towards those mistakes. In the end I am happy with the position I'm in my life right now. Not sound like one of "those people" but I had a rather sordid past. I spent most of my adult years involved with a group of friends that partied a lot. Now I don't mean a lot as in "Hey let's have a party! Break out the pie and punch!" I mean the kind of parties that make Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas look like a training film! I've had partners that I don't remember, partners I could never of forget and substances that were only hinted about in college textbooks... but even with all of that going on and the inevitable problems that would come with it, I don't think I would do anything differently. I think that what makes the person themselves is not just the big events in their life but the culmination of all the events in their life. I truly believe in the Butterfly Effect when it comes to people's lives.
