There is absolutely nothing worse than rooming with someone who never leaves the house. We wouldn't mind bunking with a short-tempered Chris Brown, so long as the occasional probation hearing kept him out of the crib.
If you're too poor to pay for an undivided cable bill, chances are your apartment is worth escaping from time to time.

Sling Molly in the parking lot of a Bassnectar show for all we care. Just leave.
