10 Things You Should Thank Your Roommate For

Before you came to college, the idea of living with another person was terrifying! What if you don't get along? What if she's a morning person and you're a night owl? Chances are, after meeting them, you quickly learned that wasn't the case; becoming friends was inevitable. Now after a rough day, you find yourself looking forward to her walking through the door after her night class. So as soon as she gets in the door, grab her, and thank her for these ten things!

1. All the random late night food runs!

Because who else wants to go to Taco Bell with you at two in the morning? Or go get a chocolate milkshake when it’s four degrees?

2. For listening to you talk about your crush like it’s your job.

You know you’ve told her the story of how he looked at you and waved 12 times today already, but you’re just SO excited that you have to tell her a couple hundred more times. After all, you guys are going to get married.


3. For not murdering you when you don’t get up for the first seven alarms.

She knows just as well as you do: you’re not getting out of that bed for your 8 am until 7:55, but instead of getting mad, she tries to go back to sleep. But be warned, she’ll tease you about it later.


4. For all of the beautiful, hilarious, ugly, and insane pictures she takes of you.

You never knew that you looked like a T-Rex while you laughed, but thanks to her, you do now!


5. For being your “Mom away from Mom."

“Your paper is due tomorrow, and you have to do your laundry! You have to wear those black dress pants. No, you can’t wear sweatpants, IT’S A JOB INTERVIEW!” What would you do without her?


6. For being there for you all the time.

It’s finals week and you’ve already lost your mind twice, thought about changing your major, and haven’t slept in three days; she’s been by your side the whole time. Through all the crying, the frustration, the yelling, she’s been there for everything.


7. For all of her undying support.

She knew you were going to get into that summer program, and when you did, she celebrated like she was the one going. When you come to her with a bad test grade or doubting yourself, she’s pushing you and believing in you; even when you aren’t.


8. For sharing.

How could she ever say no?


9. For all of the great advice.

From which professor to take for College Writing, all the way to what you should say to that cute guy who sits in front of you, she generally knows what to say.


10. For being the best roommate, and best friend you could ever have.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

JMackeazy

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
