I’ve been in school for a couple of months, and I’ve made a few friends.

For Thanksgiving, my roommate asked me to join him for the holidays.

He lived pretty close to the college, and I was an 8-hour drive. My mom and dad were disappointed that I decided not to come home, but I was pretty excited to spend a few days relaxing with friends instead of driving across the country. My roommate and I took an Uber to his home, and it cost us almost $200. We pulled up to the house, and it was bigger than I was expecting. Trevor never mentioned that his family had money, and these people clearly had a lot. The driveway was long and narrow, and it looked exactly like the movies. A butler answered the door and said hello to Trevor. Up until that point, I kind of thought that he might be pranking me. We dropped our bags at the front door and walked all the way to the back of the house. It took 5 minutes to walk to the end of the house. We reached an area where there was a giant pool and another small house. Trevor told me we were staying in the pool house. The place was totally amazing. I had my own room and my own air conditioner. I even had a remote control for the air conditioner. Trevor told me I could set the temperature anywhere I liked, and I decided to put the air conditioner at 65 degrees. I think Trevor made his room very cold too. At school, the air conditioner never works very well and we always end up sweating all night long. I had an amazing time with my roomie.
