College stories

Published by at 12:35 am under Open Chat Night

Last week a member in our chat asked if anyone had interesting stories about their time in high school or college.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot to share since I mostly focused on my studies instead of socializing with others.  However, I did have an interesting encounter with a dorm mate that didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped.

One year, I got to know the student who stayed in the room next to mine.  Although I thought he would be a good friend to hang out with, the relationship took a wrong turn when he became rather clingy and stalkerish.  For instance, every time he heard me come into the dorm suite, he would open his door immediately to greet me.  Sometimes it got to the point where I would quietly sneak into my room and lock the door so he wouldn’t bother me.  The next minute, however, he would come out and knock on my door for several minutes, even if I didn’t answer.  That experience discouraged me from any further attempts to make friends in college.  Looking back now though, I think it’s kind of funny.

Have any interesting stories about your high school or college days?  Tell us at next Wednesday’s Open Chat Night.
