10 Types of People in a Group Chat

10 Types of People in a Group Chat

We've all been there.

"I've never been held hostage, but I have been in a group chat."

It's almost 2017, and at this point i'm assuming everyone in the smartphone world has been in a group chat (or group text) at least once in their life. Depending on the type of person you are, you might love them or absolutely hate them. Group chats take up a majority of your phone battery because your squad is always sending screenshots from Instagram/Twitter, gossiping about that girl you all hated from high school or trying to make plans for next weekend. Depending on the group of people in your chat, the conversations can vary, but specifically at least every chat has one of these ten people:

1. The Roaster.

That one person who is always on the prowl for who they can roast next in the group chat. You better think twice about everything you post because they've been thinking of roasts all day. (My favorite kind of person.)

2. The Roastee.

The person who can never get a break from the Roaster.

3. The Ghost.

This is the person who you'll never actually take out of your chat cause your tight in real life, but they just never answer. (Except the occasional "lol".)

4. The Comedian.

The person who also occasionally answers, but every time they do they never disappoint because they always say something hilarious.

5. The Ranter.

This is the person who's always fighting with their boyfriend/girlfriend and the texts come in sporadically. By the time their done you'll have about 32 text messages that could of fit into one paragraph.

6. The Questioner.

The person who's literally always confused when you're all trying to make plans and asks a million stupid questions that we're already answered (if they would just scroll up in the chat they would know that for themselves).

7. The Person Who Kills Every Joke.

We honestly wish you would talk a little less. *cricket, cricket*

8. The News Breaker.

We love this person because they're always on Facebook sending us screenshots to make sure we're always up to date with whats going on with everyone else in the world.

9. The Intellectual.

The person who ruins everything thats semi-funny with some educated background about the joke.

10. The Tribe Leader and Leadees.

The main person in the group chat and everyone else who always has your back when you need some back up.

10 Things I Threw Out AFTER Freshman Year Of College

Guess half the stuff on your packing list doesn't really matter

I spent the entire summer before my freshman year of college so WORRIED.

I also spent most of my money that summer on miscellaneous dorm stuff. I packed the car when the time finally came to move in, and spent the drive up excited and confused about what the heck was actually going on.

Freshman year came and went, and as I get ready to go back to school in just a few short weeks (!!), I'm starting to realize there's just a whole bunch of crap I just don't need.

After freshman year, I threw out:

1. Half my wardrobe.

I don't really know what I was thinking of owning 13 sweaters and 25 T-shirts in the first place. I wear the same five T-shirts until I magically find a new one that I probably got for free, and I put on jeans maybe four times. One pair is enough.

2. Half my makeup.

Following in the theme of #1, if I put on makeup, it's the same eyeliner-mascara combination as always. Sometimes I spice it up and add lipstick or eyeshadow.

3. My vacuum.


One, I basically never did it. Two, if I REALLY needed to vacuum, dorms rent out cleaning supplies.

4. Most of my photos from high school.

I didn't throw them ALL away, but most of them won't be making a return to college. Things change, people change, your friends change. And that's okay.

5. Excess school supplies.

Binders are heavy and I am lazy. I surprisingly didn't lose that many pens, so I don't need the fifty pack anymore. I could probably do without the crayons.

6. Cups/Plates/Bowls/Silverware.

Again, I am lazy. I cannot be bothered to wash dishes that often. I'll stick to water bottles and maybe one coffee cup. Paper plates/bowls can always be bought, and plastic silverware can always be stolen from different places on campus.

7. Books.

I love to read, but I really don't understand why I thought I'd have the time to actually do it. I think I read one book all year, and that's just a maybe.

8. A sewing kit.

I don't even know how to sew.

9. Excessive decorations.

It's nice to make your space feel a little more cozy, but not every inch of the wall needs to be covered.

10. Throw pillows.

At night, these cute little pillows just got tossed to the floor, and they'd sit there for days if I didn't make my bed.

7 Signs You've Found An Authentic Friend

Never take true friendships for granted.


In a generation like ours, sometimes it's hard to distinguish a lifelong friend from a temporary one. There are friends for every part of your life: your childhood friends, college friends, work friends, and even friends that you play poker with at your retirement home. But one thing holds true during your life journey, hold on to your authentic friends. Here's how to distinguish one from an ordinary friend.

1. They remember specific details you've told them in the past.


How did they remember that your dog was turning 12 on June 6th? It's because they genuinely take the time to listen to you. This shows how much they care and want to know about your life.

2. They care about your well-being.


If you've heard your friend say things like "drive safe" or "text me when your flight lands", this shows how much they care about your safety. Authentic friends will make sure you are protected and feeling happy.

3. They always want the best for you.


We all know there is a big difference between a jealous friend and a supportive friend. Surrounding yourself with friends that want the best for you is important. More positivity will be brought in your life if you are aware of maintaining an encouraging environment for yourself.

4. They will be extremely honest with you.


True friends say it like it is. They won't lie and tell you your skirt matches your shoes if it doesn't. Honesty is the best policy when it comes to distinguishing a genuine friend.

5. They keep your secrets safe.


You can trust them and tell them anything. Authentic friends won't repeat secrets you've told them to anyone else, and this is such a refreshing feeling! These are reliable and trustworthy people.

6. They will go out of their way to help you.


This relates to caring about your well-being because they will do anything for you. Your true friends will go the extra mile without hesitation. They will be there for you wherever you need them and won't expect a favor in return.

7. They embrace your goofy side.


Everybody's got one! If you are able to be your true goofy self around your people then you, my friend, have found a true one! Enjoy being weirdos together.

If any of your friends meet these criteria, then you are blessed! Never take your true friendships for granted.
