I'm getting another roommate!

My best friend Matt was offered, and accepted, a job today with the Hartford Courant. He'll be moving up from Virginia in a couple weeks, and moving in with me and my roommate, Susan, who is also Matt's girlfriend.

This is absolutely fabulous news for all involved -- the news we've been waiting on the edge of our seats for. Here are five reasons I'm excited about Matt moving in:

1. I like to try new things. Matt and I have never lived together, although he spent nearly every waking moment at my apartment back in Corpus Christi. It's something we always wanted to do, and now we get to!

2. It will probably be good for me and Susan to get a little dose of the real outside world in our regular daily lives. Right now it's hard for us to stop studying. We'll still need to study, but a little bit of a "bad" influence may do us good.

3. Vinnie, the cat, will be happier. He needs more attention.

4. Matt was an accounting major and can help me with my Sourcing & Managing Funds homework.

5. My rent and utility costs will fall by 33%, and the savings come at a good time -- I need to get my New Zealand/Australia tickets pronto!
