As one can imagine, the benefits of living with thirty of your sisters in a beautiful house are endless. But just to save time, here are the top 10 reasons why I love living in my sorority house.

1. You essentially have an unlimited closet.

Living with 30 girls really has its perks. 30 closets in the span of one house? Yes, please. Swapping and sharing in addition to impromptu fashion shows and critiques happen every day, all day, 24/7.

2. The chef is amazing and won't judge you for inhaling six burgers at dinner.

Dorm food can easily be categorized as borderline abusive. Having a personal chef that makes soups, salads and dinners of your choice is nothing short of fabulous. Let’s not forget the fact that the ingredients don’t permanently damage your digestive track! Additionally, the kitchen is stocked with snacks and goodies of your choice at all times. What could be better?

3. The warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you walk inside.

Living in a house is one thing, but living in a home is entirely different. A home is somewhere you seek solace and comfort. A home is where you are at peace and feel secure. The sorority house becomes, not just a place of congregation and meetings, but it the place you seek in your time of need. Lucky for you, in that home are at least thirty of your sisters to be there for you.

4. You have a constant, ever-present source of entertainment.

There is not a day or a night that goes by where I’m left bored. Indisputably, there are constant shenanigans, scheming and laughter. Bachelor viewing parties, fro-yo trips, and gossip sessions are the little things that make living in the house exponentially more fun.

5. You feel so legit when you use "The Fob" to unlock the door.

There is truly nothing more gratifying than hearing the click of acceptance as The Fob grants you exclusive entrance into the sorority house.

6. You always have a shoulder to cry on.

In the wake of school stress and such, comes emotional breakdowns and a need for a support system. The thirty girls I live with are my most immediate support system every time I step into that house. Sisterhood isn’t just about the fun, it’s about the commitment and love every girl has for one another.

7. Your sisters provide endless encouragement.

The girls you live with will encourage you to be the best person you can be. They will inspire you to elevate yourself into a strong, self-confident young woman. These women will teach you lessons no other person could.

Anytime you need motivation and support it's like having a whole team to cheer you on. And for the occasional circumstance where wacky behavior is necessary, they will bring out the fun and crazy no one else knows you have in you.

8. Living with girls is a challenge but it's honestly the best.

Girls rule Boys drool. Simple as that.

9. It's literally impossible to be lonely.

The best thing about walking into a sorority house is being greeted by all the girls in it. Never is there a time where I feel lonesome, and never is there a night where I go to bed without receiving goodnight wishes from my two perfect roommates.

10. Sisterhood is a bond that can never be broken.

At the end of the day, it's not the scrumptious food, lavish house, or the clean bathrooms that drive my love for this house. It’s the thirty plus girls in the there who remind me every day how lucky I am to be included in such a group of powerful and independent women. These girls make this house my home.

To My Best Friend Who Taught Me What True Friendship Is, I Can't Thank You Enough

"To the person who will love you endlessly, love her with kindness and understanding."

Dear Best Friend,

You have been a part of my life for quite some time now. You have seen my good, bad, and ugly sides and have stuck by my side through it all. I don't know if I could ever find the words to truly thank you for everything your friendship has given me, but I am definitely going to try.

Our lives have taken some twist and turn these past few years, but we have stayed strong through it all.

Thank you for judging me just the right amount.

Throughout our friendship, I have made some very questionable decisions. A lot of people would say "thanks for never judging me," but I feel like everyone needs a best friend who's going to tell them how it is, to tell them when they are about to make a bad decision or how to avoid something worse from happening. You have always told me how it is (even when I don't always want to hear it), but I know that I can come to you whenever I need someone to set me straight.

You're always down to do nothing with me.

I think that you are the one person that I can call up to hang out and do absolutely nothing with and have a good time. From the nights sitting in and playing card games to ordering Chinese food and watching an entire Netflix series while I dance around with the cat: I know that we could do anything, and nothing together and it would be fun.

But also, you're always down to get lit with me.

I swear one day we will be two old moms at a bar drinking vodka crans and laughing about the stupid shit our husbands and children do. You're always down to go out and have a good time. Even if everyone else we're with is miserable, we find a way to laugh at ourselves.

You are one of the few constant things in my life.

I've lost a lot of friends in my life, but you have stayed by my side through everything. I can't remember the last time we actually fought about anything, but even when we do we can't stay mad at each other for more than a day. I know we will be in each other's lives until we literally keel over.

I want you yo know that you're the strongest person I know.

You've dealt with things that not many people go through ever in their life. You have always been so mature, and you handle everything with grace. You inspire me every day with your goals and successes and I am so proud of you and all of your accomplishments.

Above all else, you deserve the world.

It's so easy to get caught up in your own mind and think that you deserve the things that happen to you, but please know that the only thing you deserve is happiness. Please settle for nothing short of that. It may take a bit to find your happiness, but I will be there every step of the way. You're a remarkable human being, and I want nothing but the best for you.

To the person who will hold your heart someday, please do not break it. To the person who may wrong you, you will regret it forever. To the person who will love you endlessly, love her with kindness and understanding.

You, my best friend, future bridesmaid, godmother of my children, the person to bail me out of jail, the one who lets me cry on their couch for twelve hours,

I love you.

I will cherish our friendship forever. Thank you for being you.

Love always,

Your best friend.

Being The Last Friend To Turn 21 Isn't ALL Bad

All your friends have turned 21, but that is okay

You may think being the last one out of your friend group to turn twenty-one is the worst thing in the world, but in all honesty, it doesn't have to be. One of the biggest perks is that everyone of your friends can go out to the bars with you on your birthday. All the people who turn twenty-one first have to wait for people to be able to go out with them, but you get to celebrate your birthday with all of your friends.

Another huge reason you should feel okay with being last to turn twenty-one is thinking about all the money you are saving. The bars are expensive. When you don't go to the bars you are saving so much money because an average bar drink is about seven dollars. This being said seven dollars multiple times a night, multiple nights a week really adds up, so you are going to have to budget your money better.

You don't have to be the one to buy alcohol for everyone else. Having a ton of people ask you to buy them alcohol must get annoying at a point, and if you're the youngest out of your friends, no one will be asking you to do liquor store runs for them because they can all go already for themselves.

The biggest reason is that you can enjoy being young. You should still continue to enjoy going to house parties and just being able to hang out with friends without having to go to the bars. Spend these months before you turn twenty-one just being able to enjoy life without feeling obligated to go out to the bars all the time. You have a great excuse when you don't want to drink on a weekday to just stay in. This being said it will be your turn to turn twenty-one soon.
