First Quarter

Well, since I came up with this amazing idea a month into my second quarter here at the GrandMarc, I’ll have to let you all know about the stuff that happened in the first.

(Just to forewarn, these events may not be in chronological order, but you’ll get the gist of it.)

It all started when we moved in.  Of course, it was a little awkward for us all at first.  I mean, 4 guys who had never met, yeah.  However, it all got worse as we decided to go out and check out the surroundings as a group, but Kyle didn’t really feel like it.  That’s fine, but after it started being a regular occurrence that he would rather stay in that come to do random things with us, it became apparent that he just didn’t want to hang out with us.  So that was the end of our reach out program.

We soon came to realize that while we went out to eat and see weird Wes Anderson indie flicks, he’s at home watching things like The Food Network, The Animal Planet or The Discovery channel.  Or if he felt like watching something with a real storyline he would pop in one of his classic DVDs, such as, A Bug’s Life, The Phantom of the Opera or just kick back and watch some 2006 Winter Guard Awards Competition (yeah, girls swirling flags and dudes spinning fake guns, which he still has in the apartment, by the way).

So now that we’ve figured out what he’s been doing while we were gone, let’s take a look at the odd things he did when we were here.  Well first of all he takes Ritalin, which I know isn’t his fault, but I don’t think drinking a 20 oz energy drink right after is a great idea.  I don’t know if it was a side-effect, but he tended to bounce around a lot more around these times.  Remember, he’s culinary, so he has a really spiffy knife set.  I was watching the movie Halloween on AMC and he stood in the middle of the room and sharpened one of his la-a-a-arge knives.  That’s just creepy.  In fact he did quite a lot of creepy things.  Some of those include his way of always having the most awkward way of starting conversations, and asking those weird mother-like questions like “How was your day?” or “Are you feeling better today?”, as well as his odd offers of money, groceries, & what-have-you.  But probably one of the more creepier things is his crazy way of randomly storming out of the room, or just staying locked in his bedroom while we had people over.  I would say he’s one of the creepiest people I’ve ever known.  Of course, towards the end of the term, we all stayed up late doing projects, getting ready to leave, and what not.  However, while we were doing this he would hang out in his room, and when we all went to bed, he decided to come out, work, and cook at absurd times of the night.

He’s not only creepy, boring, and completely unsocial, he’s quite unhealthy in many ways.  From what we could tell, he never used the shower that was provided in the bathroom that was attached to his bedroom.  Also, in his bedroom, was a large desk that we helped him and his mom bring up.  However, he did not use the desk for work (he did most of his work sprawled out on the living room floor…) but for throwing his unwashed clothes on top of.  Now, not only did his clothes cover his desk, but towards the end of the term they started to spill over into the living room.  But wait, there’s more!  He’s a culinary student, as I mentioned already.  That means that he is a chef, so you’d think that he would keep his workspace (aka the kitchen that the four of us share) clean.  But he didn’t.  In fact, it was quite the opposite.  It was always dirty.  The stovetop was always a mess, and the fridge was completely overloaded with his mess of his crappy pots and pans of his crappy leftover dishes.  In his bedroom, we once found a glass of some liquid with a nice layer of mold on top, which was right next to his pillow.  That doesn’t even effect us, that’s just unhealthy for him…  One thing that did effect us was when, during one of the first weeks, he brought out a bag of grapes, which he then left out for another week or two and they attracted some amazing little friend to our apartment, some lovely fruit flies that didn’t go away for a few days.  And who could forget the surprise I found when I came back during break to drop my sister off at the airport.  Let’s just say there was mold and dirt that was left from before break, that still wasn’t picked up.  I almost vomited.

So, if you didn’t get it from this long, long, long post, Kyle is a horrible fucking roommate.  To sum up how horrible he is, his actual in-room roommate left.  He moved away to another school (granted, there were other reasons, but still…).  He’s a douche.

  1. Still, I did get coffee with that 10 dollar gift card he gave me for christmas with the tiny little winter mitten. It only fit over three of my fingers of course, but it was still toasty all the same.
