11 Things You Say To Your Roomie At The End Of The Semester

11 Things You Say To Your Roomie At The End Of The Semester

I'm going to miss you this summer.

Kayla Master

It's no secret that it's almost the end of the semester, which is the biggest relief to just about every college student on the planet. It's possibly the best (and maybe most stressful) time of the year, and if you have a roommate, there's definitely some stereotypical sayings that you've been saying to each other these past few weeks and for the remaining few weeks of the semester.

1. "Oh my god, how did the semester go by so fast??"

I don't think I've ever said a saying more than this verbatim. But honestly, it's so true. I feel like I took a nap in January and somehow woke up at the end of April.

2. "I don't even want to think about packing."

If you're anything like me (aka a hoarder), you have a crap ton of stuff in your room and no motivation to pack any of it up to bring it home. Instead of packing I just sit on my bed and stare at my stuff.

3. "I'm so exhausted."

You may also replace exhausted with tired, dying, or any other combination of words. Even though the semester went by really fast, it wore me out beyond belief and coffee consumption has increased substantially (and to no avail).

4. "I can't make it to class."

Tying into the exhaustion quote above, the physical exhaustion and the desire to not leave bed is so real. But with only a week left of class, I believe that we can both make it through (okay maybe not).

5. "Do you want Dunkin?"

Other variations include, "I had Dunkin 3 times today" or "I wish Dunkin delivered." Dunkin addictions are definitely real, and the finals preparations are no exception for the constant coffee breaks.

6. "I have so much work to do."

This definitely applies to the entire semester as well, but for some reason work seems to increase as the semester wraps up and that's just wrong. So your roommate is definitely the person who gets to enjoy your venting about professors.

7. "I'm going to miss living here next year."

If you're *blessed* like me, you love your dorm building and cry internally thinking about not living there again next year (and for me, I'm definitely stepping down). It's going to be the real struggle moving to a new location.

8. "I'm so hungry right now."

During those late night study sessions, the midnight cravings are so real. And at this point in the semester, your room food options are definitely limited.

9. "Do I really have to take my finals?"

No one wants to take their finals (if you do are you crazy???). Unfortunately, your roommate can do nothing about the fact that you don't want to take your finals, but that won't stop you from venting nonstop.

10. "*groans*"

The most common thing I say to my roommate hands down isn't even a saying: just a noise. Whether we're going work or just sitting around, we really just sit and groan or heavily sigh at least 10 times an hour.

11. "I'm gonna miss you next year."

If you're like me and not living with your same roommate next year, you're starting to hit the feels about not living with them again next year. But luckily for me, my current roomie will be directly across the street.

24 Beauty And Style Brands Donating To The Fight To End Police Brutality Against Black People

From small, boutique brands to legacy fashion brands.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.
