The 10 Commandments Of Not Being A Terrible College Roommate Moses Himself Can't Deny

College roommates can suck.

The 10 Commandments Of Not Being A Terrible College Roommate Moses Himself Can't Deny
Sam Frost

The worst roommate I ever had used to microwave shrimp in our dorm room.

Scratch that. The worst roommate I ever had used to wear clown makeup and play with her switchblade. Oh, and she was a Trump supporter. (I honestly don't know which is scarier.)

College roommates can suck. They are used to mom and dad cleaning up after them and generally have no idea how to live with someone who doesn't have unconditional love for them.

We ought to just scribe in golden tablets the 10 rules all college kids should follow in order to not be a nightmare to live with.

1. Thou shalt not steal thy roommate's food.

Do you want to lose a hand?

2. Thou shalt always knock before entering.

You never know what the hell they might be up to in there.

3. Thou shalt hide all thine alcohol and weed when thy parents are in town and never speak of it.

Dude. I may be an adult, but please don't tell my mom.

4. Thou shalt not leave dishes in the sink for longer than 24 hours.

Unfortunately, your dishes aren't going to clean themselves.

5. Thou shalt not have screaming sex.

JK, I can believe it because I, along with all of North America, heard you.

6. Thou shalt not think the world revolves around them.

Yeah... I am too busy taking care of myself to take care of you too.

7. Thou shalt always clean up after themselves.

I am not your mother.

8. Thou shalt never make smelly foods.

I'm still pissed about the shrimp-in-our-microwave thing.

9. Thou shalt not bone in thy roommate's room.

I cannot believe people actually do this. Bruh, get your own room.

10. Thou shalt always pay thy bills on time.

Don't be that one guy who is always making the house late on payments.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season
