10 Things You Didn't Think You Would Miss About Your Roommates Over Break

10 Things You Didn't Think You Would Miss About Your Roommates Over Break

I live with ya, and can't live without ya.

I don't know what's tighter, our jeans or our friendship.

Going home for winter break is always exciting because we get to see our family and friends! We've been waiting since last year for Christmas and New Years to come again and we finally get to eat our favorite home cooked meal. As you're unpacking and getting settled back into your room, something feels empty. You realize you're starting to miss your home away from home, your roommates. Almost every moment at college is spent with them, and you start to wonder what your going to do without them for an entire month. Here are all the things I didn't know I would miss so much about my crazy, lovable roommates:

1. Losing your closet.

I just went from having three other closets to one, now what am I supposed to wear when I look like a potato in everything I own?

2. The feeling of being "home alone" feels new again.

Even though you swore you hated them when they were being loud and you were trying to nap, sitting home alone feels strange and way too quiet for your liking.

3. Losing the little devils on your shoulder.

Now who are you gonna have to force you to go out with them when you know you should be studying for your business exam?

4. Laughing at stupid things.

I guess i'm gonna have to laugh at my own jokes for the next three weeks or so.

5. You miss having someone to stay up with you until 2am.

Long subway rides and long nights of "studying" don't feel the same when you're not with your roomies.

6. You have no one to get food with you 24/7.

Who other than your roommates would meal exchange with you to then go to the dining hall to order grubhub right after?

7. Constant support.

When you miss having your roommates around to tell you you didn't bomb that test (even if you did) or make you laugh when you get into a bad fight with your boyfriend.

8. You have no one to tell your awkward moments to.

Now I have no one to laugh with me about all the awkward things that I do.

9. You have someone to dress bummy with you.Because Friday nights can get wild and no one (including your roommates) are going to want to put on real pants. (Bagels n Cream we're on the way.)

10. Having someone to approve your outfit before you go out.

Cause it's only acceptable to ask your roommates if you should wear booties or heels, or if you should wear jeans or leggings.

Shoutout Ash, Alex, and Halle, yall the real MVP's.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

To Those Who Feel The Need To Tear Down Others, Take A Seat

You have no right to hurt others because you don’t agree with them.


I recently wrote a super controversial article, which I'm honestly very proud of. In the comment section, there were plenty of people criticizing me because of what I believe in, mainly because they didn't believe in the same thing as I put out there.

I would just like everyone to know that the people that write for this amazing company are just that — people. They are real, they have opinions, and they have feelings. There is nothing different about them than you. Would you like someone commenting hate on your Facebook post or anything like that? No, no you wouldn't. When you comment rude things on something that someone worked long and hard on, you are just being rude and inconsiderate of their feelings.

If you just go to the comments to leave a rude comment, you can write it down on a piece of paper and throw it away. You're being a bully. These writers more than likely will go to the comment section, just like I did, and will be hurt by your arrogant, inappropriate comments.

Ever heard of if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.

If you don't agree with me that's fine, but that doesn't give you the right to deliberately go and try and tear me or anyone else down. You're just being rude and you have no reason to be, all I did was write an article on something I believe in.

Also, don't let anyone rude enough to do this tear you down or diminish your self-worth. There are people out there who are still kind and caring, don't listen to the negativity this world brings. Just keep doing what makes you happy, because in the end, that's all that really matters.
