11 Things That Happen When You Find Your People

You may not realize it, but all of these things happen when you're essentially inseparable.

11 Things That Happen When You Find Your People

College is weird.

I mean think about it. Suddenly, you're thrown into an environment filled with new people from different backgrounds and expected to live life, like... normal. And make... friends.

Have you ever thought of it like that?

But the cool thing about the friends you make is they become your cuddle buddies, your confidants, and your sisters. And all these other things happen, too

1. They know the code to your complex and walk right in

Whether it's a swipe, key code, or key, they know it and have no problem using it frequently.

2. You have your important dates and their important dates on your calendar

Well, I mean you have to support each other, right?? And chances are you were going anyway.

3. You never really stop talking, it's kind of just a continual conversation with intermissions

It might be quiet from like 1am to 9am, but that's just so you can rest your thumbs.

4. You know their class schedule

Well, duh. It's also probably really similar to yours anyway. Or they're in your class. (This was taken when our professor was telling us to put our phones away, lol sorry not sorry)

5. You know their phone passcodes

How else are you every going to get that cute photo you guys took, or block the boy your girl won't get over??

6. Your parents ask about them

My mom asks about my girls daily and sends them stuff. She basically adopted them. And their mom's adopted me too.

7. They take crazy adventures with you.

Whether it's trekking for ice cream at 3am, or heading to a championship game in another state-- you can't imagine it without them

8. You know you drive each other crazy, but remind yourself it is out of love.

Yeah, they may have texted you 15 times in a row, and it definitely drives you crazy, but the minute you guys are together all is forgiven.

9. You can finish each other's sentences[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F30%2F636213445415751464-1256922444_200-5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=8&h=51c3828f9ef69d586ec432bc4366921209b5cb233c9bfe9aeca3231841884a04&size=980x&c=2648657207 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F30%252F636213445415751464-1256922444_200-5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D8%26h%3D51c3828f9ef69d586ec432bc4366921209b5cb233c9bfe9aeca3231841884a04%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2648657207%22%7D" expand=1]

The first time it happens, it might feel super creepy, but the feeling of someone being totally on your wavelength is pretty amazing.

10. You've got each other's backs.

Another girl is talking smack at the bar, you know you've got the back up you need to shut her down. You also have the back up you need to talk to the cute boy, and to eat your 5th cookie. They got you.

11. You know them inside and out

You know exactly how much sugar and milk go into their coffee, and what TV show they're bingeing. Whether it's a look of excitement or terror, together you can read any situation and do what's best. You know what makes them happy, what makes them cry, everything. You. Know. Them.

Back to my initial question: have you ever thought of it like that? College?

I have. And the only reason is because I have these girls next to me.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
