15 Reasons I Have The Best Roommate In The Game

Now I don't know if I'm capable of living without you.

15 Reasons I Have The Best Roommate In The Game
Nicolette Pezza

Ah, roommates. We've heard all of the horror stories that come with the term. Even if they are your best friend, living with a person can bring out the worst in some people. Of course, if you're lucky enough you'll hit the roommate jackpot and find someone who fits every aspect most of us desire in a living buddy. After two years and counting, I'm confident to say that I won the roommate lottery.

1. She's Considerate

If she's ever going to have friends or family over she always makes sure to run it by me first.

2. Which Means Not Being Loud Late At Night On Weeknights

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F6360621987810345791151450265_2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=474&h=5a3ffc49638ac6e75fcefe7794a228362fdb01fe39ecd7ab62395d23159184db&size=980x&c=431659419 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F6360621987810345791151450265_2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D474%26h%3D5a3ffc49638ac6e75fcefe7794a228362fdb01fe39ecd7ab62395d23159184db%26size%3D980x%26c%3D431659419%22%7D" expand=1]

Even if she still has papers to get done, she always works in the most quiet fashion possible and makes sure to check in that she isn't keeping me awake.

3. She Cleans Up After Herself

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F6360621995995301651188145547_3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=155&h=da9e0f6d3adb8a2f17ec0cd78d862b4f021d9279ac34e01f52ade7848709b867&size=980x&c=1121115276 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F6360621995995301651188145547_3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D155%26h%3Dda9e0f6d3adb8a2f17ec0cd78d862b4f021d9279ac34e01f52ade7848709b867%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1121115276%22%7D" expand=1]

You won't find empty takeout containers months later in our place, thank you.

4. And Doesn't Hate Me When I'm Not Clean

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F6360622007693156159239557_4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=744&h=3f3fa0b956cb6e4a1b88add31ddca014e67fb258eb5c2c0634471d21e001932b&size=980x&c=3748515263 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F6360622007693156159239557_4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D744%26h%3D3f3fa0b956cb6e4a1b88add31ddca014e67fb258eb5c2c0634471d21e001932b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3748515263%22%7D" expand=1]

While I'm far from a messy person, sometimes life gets a little too hectic to have the time to clean after a long day (or week). My roommate forgives me for when things get a little untidy until I have the time to get to them.

5. She Is A Built In Companion

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F6360622014136086291403756601_5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=819&h=57340d4a6caf0101cfb25833ba3347d401e268707a335110c22d794457e54427&size=980x&c=3221501441 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F6360622014136086291403756601_5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D819%26h%3D57340d4a6caf0101cfb25833ba3347d401e268707a335110c22d794457e54427%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3221501441%22%7D" expand=1]

I always have someone to be my partner-in-crime.

6. Which Means I Never Eat Alone

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F6360622028097478991710894130_6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=26&h=de71b54bbd2d0ee92e9f5ef6ce137686530d8dc486febd5b96d4083a803a9dff&size=980x&c=910938318 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F6360622028097478991710894130_6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D26%26h%3Dde71b54bbd2d0ee92e9f5ef6ce137686530d8dc486febd5b96d4083a803a9dff%26size%3D980x%26c%3D910938318%22%7D" expand=1]

It's a rare occasion when I don't have someone to eat my meals with.

7. She Accepts Me As I Am

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F6360622047644305221856564594_6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=533&h=b19973e5d7a244470c2f603648d929903268901c7b0e91aef090390ef4cc8b9c&size=980x&c=1216835573 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F6360622047644305221856564594_6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D533%26h%3Db19973e5d7a244470c2f603648d929903268901c7b0e91aef090390ef4cc8b9c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1216835573%22%7D" expand=1]

Meaning no makeup, fresh out of the shower in the baggiest sweatpants and t-shirt I could find.

8. She Lets Me Borrow Her Clothes

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F636062207958870539-1870444184_7.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=283&h=1c98bb30546ec90539a3976eace30ff8532f966a5b922090a8c9aa2ea1fd3675&size=980x&c=4284763268 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F636062207958870539-1870444184_7.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D283%26h%3D1c98bb30546ec90539a3976eace30ff8532f966a5b922090a8c9aa2ea1fd3675%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4284763268%22%7D" expand=1]

When it's Friday night and nothing seems to look good she always offers her wardrobe to help my fashion-challenged self.

9. She Approves Messages To Boys

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F6360622091652816301193538319_9.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=736&h=e5b7826964af913ca5f55d1b871fb0a547417ba664e5921454cfac94968ec08c&size=980x&c=3756029962 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F6360622091652816301193538319_9.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D736%26h%3De5b7826964af913ca5f55d1b871fb0a547417ba664e5921454cfac94968ec08c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3756029962%22%7D" expand=1]

Texts and Snapchats are always run by her.

10. We Go To The Gym Together

Tell me there's something more perfect than having a roommate who is also your workout buddy. There isn't.

11. She's Always Down For A Roomie Movie Night

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F08%2F6360622129716051981108477478_11.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=969&h=bcb653faa8fb4b66dcd65517b9ea8df96f3615f1122e39d03ebaacabf2d1850c&size=980x&c=3447590930 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F08%252F6360622129716051981108477478_11.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D969%26h%3Dbcb653faa8fb4b66dcd65517b9ea8df96f3615f1122e39d03ebaacabf2d1850c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3447590930%22%7D" expand=1]

Sometimes it's just better to stay in.

Who else will I have celebratory champagne with?

14. I Don't Get Sick Of Talking To Her 24/7

If we aren't together chances are we're texting, sending each other Snapchats or commenting on each others social media posts.

15. She's My Best Friend

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?
https://pixabay.com/photos/college-students-diploma-graduate-3990783/

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
