15 Reasons Living With Roommates Is Great
Steadfast Living

If you are in college, chances are you have roommates, whether it be one or multiple. No matter how many you have, there are many upsides to living with other people.

1. They make you food when you are hungry.

I can always count on my roommates to make extra food for me. This is an important quality in a good roommate.

2. You always have someone to talk to when you need emotional support.

3. You can borrow their clothes.

—with permission of course. Or if they aren't there to say otherwise...

4. If you forget something at your room, someone can usually get it or bring it for you!

5. When their parents come to visit, you are always invited to dinner with them.

There is nothing like a free meal with family, even if the family is 'extended'.

6. You can always get a second opinion on your outfits without having to send pictures or FaceTime someone.

They usually aren't afraid to tell you when they don't like something.

7. Your movie collection grows without having to buy any more movies.

Honestly,this is one of my favorite roommate perks.

8. You get exposed to music you otherwise would not have gotten to hear.

Some of my favorite songs are from my roommate's playlists.

9. You can get free relationship advice.

You can always trust your roommate to give you an honest opinion on a potential new boyfriend or girlfriend.


Literally, all of the time. Probably once a day.

11. They will remind you when important events are coming up.

There are times I would have completely forgotten a birthday or a meeting if one of my roommates hadn't reminded me.

12. You get to meet different circles of people.

You are constantly introduced to new groups of friends and in turn get to make more friends!

13. Never underestimate a good inside joke.

14. You can share everything.

Dishes, food, cleaning responsibilities, supplies, clothes, almost anything you can set your mind to. Its always nice to know that if you need an oven mitt, someone is bound to have one.

15. You can always count on them, through thick and thin.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
