I sent a very annoying e-mail to them as soon as I found out how to contact them because, well, I’m me and can’t be patient for anything. At first I thought, “The worst has happened. They hate me and we haven’t even met each other yet.”
Luckily, I was completely wrong.
Without further ado, let me introduce you to my dorm-mates.
Mara is my actual room-mate. See, in the dorm, we have a kitchen, a living room, and two bedrooms. Each of us is assigned a specific bedroom (no switching allowed), so it’ll be Mara and I in Room B.
“I was born in Rhode Island, but I grew up in Virginia, California, and Germany.” Mara explained (surprisingly willingly, considered I pretty much attacked them with questions).
Mara is in the Liberal Studies Program. She’s a military kid, and is extremely upbeat and Starbucks/gym oriented (We’re cool on the Starbucks…this “gym” thing is going to be an interesting ordeal for me). Mara is also the source of the Keurig machine. We’re pretty much destined to be roomies.
“New York is where all my family is from and I am in love with the city.” She also added, explaining why NYU was her first choice as a University.
“I am a dancer, I love coffee, I am a big traveler, and I love going to different places and trying new things!”
I can already tell this is going to be awesome.
What they don’t know about, however, is just how much “traveling” they’re going to be stuck doing in and out of Broadway.
Juli is also in the Liberal Studies Program, and she plans on majoring in Psychology. She was born in Puerto Rico, but moved to Miami a while back.
Of course, Juli is also a Starbucks lover, is really outgoing, and is always up for a visit to the gym (…I am in so much trouble).
“I love the city. It’s a great school with lots of connections and opportunities.” Juli says about NYU being her Number One.
Juli was the first to check out this blog, and she mentioned that she’s thinking about starting one about fashion (maybe she can teach me a few things about dressing myself).
“I love trying different things, I love Netflix, and I’m really big on fashion blogs!” She says. “I enjoy traveling a lot and hope to go to every country someday!”
I can’t wait to get to know people who have been somewhere other than the US and Canada.
“Soph” is an upcoming Art History major at CAS. She was born in New York City, but she grew up in Seoul, South Korea.
“NYU was one of my top choices since I’m born in the city and the connection there for internships and jobs is crazy!” Sophia explains about her University decision. “I love going to see art shows, exhibitions, movies…and you guys will probably see me on my laptop 99% of the time when I have nothing else to do.”
Sophia also loves Starbucks and the gym (notice a recurring theme?). I have a feeling we’re going to be spending a lot of time drinking coffee and then working it off.
“But most importantly, I love being around people and chilling with my friends.”
Girls, this is going to be one awesome year.
