10 Things That Happen When Your Roommates Go Out Of Town

Your roommates are all going home for vacation and you're staying behind. Besides missing them like crazy, you're probably glad to get some privacy, have time to relax, and get back into your groove before school starts up again. Though before all that happens, there may be some things that will probably happens they aren't around and to be honest, you shouldn't feel guilty about it... as long as the apartment is back to its normal state before they get back.

1) Two words. Dance party.

There's nothing like having a solo dance party. You can crank up the volume on all your guilty pleasure jams, dance like a maniac, and sing at the top of your lungs with no one there to give you weird looks.

2) Ditching all forms of normal human manners and eating straight from the fridge.

For some reason, your dishes just start to pile up so quickly that you start resorting to eating right from the source. No one's around to judge you so why not?

3) And of course not doing the dishes or taking the trash out until the night before they come back.

When you suddenly only have 30 minutes to clean before someone gets home, the motivation to clean is suddenly there. They'll never know the difference if you make sure the place looks exactly as it did before they left.

4) Being pants free 99% of the time.

Aww, you're missing your roommates but... It's big shirts and no pants from here on out until they come back.

5) Peeing with the door open.

One less thing to worry about.

6) Unleashing your laziest habits, like purposefully leaving the cupboard cabinets open or leaving all your things in the living room.

You've already decided that these next couple of days aren't going to be spent worrying about picking up after yourself so feel free to just revel in your own filth.

7) Talking to yourself.

For some reason, the lack of other humans around you just causes you to make up for it by talking to yourself or narrating everything you do. We don't know exactly why we do it, but we also know it doesn't really bother us.

8) Looking through your roommates' closets and wishing you had their wardrobe.

You are so, so tempted to try on their clothes because now, really looking at their wardrobe and comparing it to yours, you just don't have enough stuff.

9) Still, after a few days of not cleaning and being pants-free, you begin to miss them like crazy.

You've had your fun but now it's time for them to get back and keep you company. They're your roommates and, honestly, you wouldn't give up all the times they've been there to make you laugh and endure your being boy-crazy for anything. You're probably already making plans with them to make up for lost time.

10) And, finally, you realize how much of your social interaction is just with them.

They are the people you see every day and you wouldn't have it any other way. For me, one minute, I could be studying in the living room and the next, my roommates and I are just sitting on someone's bed and talking about everything.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
