In the summer of 2016, Taite was starting her summer internship in the State Senate and moving into her new subleased room. It was in a typical college house, slowly deteriorating and lacking enough natural light. With boxes in hand, she entered the house, creaking with every step, each room dimly lit by the Sunday afternoon sun. Omair, excited about the MotoGP race, was waiting for his best friend Alek to return home so they could watch. As she reached the base of the stairs, she looked to her left, and in a room, she saw a dark figure sitting in the middle of the couch.
At the time, both of them panicked since Omair did not know someone was moving in, and Taite was worried the person she subleased from did not inform their roommates of her arrival. Later that night, Taite and Omair were introduced to each other, and they shared their interests in racing and video games. Since it was Sunday, Alek and Omair got together to watch the MotoGP race from earlier that morning, Taite’s first introduction to the sport and, as it turns out, the closest racing finish in MotoGP’s history. Since then, they have been inseparable and continue to watch racing and play video games together.
