Sheldon Cooper

I don't know what possessed me to become Sheldon's roommate. I should have ran, far, especially when he presented a Roommates Agreement in which I was forced to sign. I am sure this sounds extreme but you have not met this guy, and if you did, even if it's a five minute walk up the stairs together, you would understand.

I guess it all started at a young age for Dr. Sheldon Cooper, being born a child prodigy and having his mother feed that giant ego he's acquired, which would later lead his to losing his job.

I don't know why or really how I came to be Sheldon's best friend, maybe it because of the way we're both geeks, but unlike me, he embraces it and sees no reason not to. Like have a Halo Night every Wednesday, in which we are all forced to take part in. Or being able to say his favorite
