By the way, what exactly do you mean by Classic Rock? Id just like to know
That's just a short list off the top of my head.
^Hmmm, yes those artists have created classic tracks. But most of these artist's genre are conflicting genres of rock, yet you have categorized them all under the 'Classic Rock' genre.
^There are different types of 'alternative' music.
And sorry, I hate techno. The lack of melody due to the musical layering just does not appeal to me lol.
As you enter our dorm room, I guarantee that the first thing to catch your eye will be the gallery of photos, magazine cutouts, movie stubs, concert tickets and other quirky items displayed elaborately on my wall. My wall is my canvas—you will find that a lot of my life experiences can be vicariously lived through after a brief skim of my wall.
^This has an informal approach. But in terms of content,
supposing you came to the room first and decided to decorate it without my consent or even knowing me, Id think 'What a freak? Who the hell do you think you are already making such a mess and making my room look F-ugly'.
If I came first, then left, and then came back and saw that you had arrived and done this, I would still think that what you have displayed is rude and selfish behavior. Also, I do not think that any of those items can ever be displayed 'elaborately'.
If I want to know about your life experiences, Id ask you. But you are suggesting that I should judge you and your life from the stuff you decide to dirty the wall with.
Don't worry; I'll make sure to keep the volume down when it's late at night and you want to sleep.
^Lol. You better!
Another thing that will strike you is my stash of foodstuff--we're going to need some brain food while cramming for a test, writing a long paper, or just something to nibble on while we study together.
^Yes. I love to eat. But I doubt your foodstuff will strike me, or everyone for that matter, because food tastes vary and what you may believe is brainfood, may not work for me.
Honestly, seeing people happy makes me happy. My friends often say my laugh is infectious. So even if you're having a bad day, after hearing a couple of my corny jokes and my laugh, I'm sure you'll crack a smile.
I like to live in the moment and I try to make each day count. I can't wait to meet you, have some fun adventures together and add some new pictures—experiences—to that wall.
^Corny jokes do not make me laugh. Unless I make them.
And I get the impression that you have a strange laugh. Strange laughs can annoy people, and not necessarily make them laugh.
*Like I said, maybe I do not want my photo on the wall. There is Facebook and photo albums for photos, even photo frames. Not everyone likes their walls to be full of photos and posters.
I think the problem with your essay is that you are assuming that no matter what, you will definitely be compatible with your room mate, and that you will all have the same interests and likes, whoever it may be. That may not be the case in reality.
