15 Common Discussions Between Roommates

One semester down and one to go of my freshman year in college. I have to say, living in a dorm has been a journey. My roommate and I were strangers sleeping in a room together, and we both agree that the first night or two was super awkward. But 4 months later, we were sad that we wouldn't see each other for a whole month for Winter Break. Whether you've known your roommate for years, or you just met at the beginning of the semester, I'm sure you've faced similar questions and comments along the way.

1. What episode are you on? Oh that's a good one, just wait.

We recommend various Netflix shows and often binge watch a few episodes of "Friends" together.

2. Does my hair look greasy?

Okay no, we're not slobs. But we do skip a night every so often of washing our hair so, you must ask for a second opinion on this one.

3. Should I go to math today?

Of course.

4. Should I wear sweatpants or do I have to wear real ones?

What about a happy medium and go with leggings.

5. Do you know if it is cold outside?

It is too long of a walk to try and see for yourself so maybe your roommate has been outside today.

6. Do I have something due tomorrow?

We know each other’s schedules like we know our own, and it is probably because we complain about being so busy.

7. Will you grab more Command Strips while you’re out? The curtains fell again.

The curtains fall all the time and the paint goes with them. Sometimes, Command Strips can be great, but other times, not so much.

8. Is it hot in here?

You can’t ever tell so you ask for clarification. A lot of times, it's right after hiking the stairs and you want to make sure it's not just you being out of shape.

9. The shower is kinda hot now, you should get one while it last.

It’s a good shower when you don’t come out shivering so obviously you have to share the news.

10. Are these brownies old?

Bringing back brownies from Thanksgiving break was a good idea, but eating one a week later wasn’t.

11. Did we just spend all day in here?

Sometimes, a whole day goes by when you wake up late and study for the rest, then you realize you haven’t left all day.

12. I’ll take out the trash tomorrow I promise.

Trash piles up quickly and it gets in the way. Nothing gross, but boxes from packages take up a lot of space in our tiny room.

13. Did I have any mail?

We share a mailbox, and we'd rather just ask than walk all the way to the mail room.

14. When is the last time I’ve washed my sheets?

You can't ever remember so maybe your roommate can.

15. Is it too late to have coffee?

For your sake, and mine, if it is past 8 o’clock, you shouldn’t have coffee.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
