Oh my goodness I can relate to you so badly right now. I started college in September too and I didn’t know my roommate either. She eats so incredibly loud and the way she chews and licks her fingers and talks to her boyfriend on skype (which she does pretty much all hours of the day) with food in her mouth and is really triggering. I don’t know what to do either. I have to leave my room all the time and camp out at the library or my lounge but that’s not really fair because it’s my room too. And I’m with you I don’t know how to bring it up either. Thank you for writing this I feel a little less alone now with being so unable to handle how my roommate eats.
