20 One-Liners That You've Exchanged With Your Roommate

"We have to take out the trash today."

God bless the soul that shares a room with me. Thank you for endless laughter, turning off the lights when I’m already in bed, and loving me so well.

“I can’t think of a caption for this. Write it for me.”

This happens at least once a week, especially on the night of formal.

“If I bend over wearing these leggings can you see my underwear?”

It’s better for your roomie to tell you this one than someone else.

“I’m going on day three without a shower. Does my hair look greasy?”

Even when they say no, they mean that you should really use some dry shampoo.

“You really just need to get over him. You're worth so much more than a stupid boy.”

It's the sweetest, most humbling reminder after a night of tears and ice-cream.

“We should probably clean tomorrow.”

Said, but never done.

“Hide the candles. We have room checks tomorrow.”

Sometimes you forget and you get fined.

“I’m going to walk past you and I need you to tell me if I smell bad.”

See, you aren’t the only one who does that.

“Wake me up in 20 minutes.”

A post-class nap on a Monday never hurts until you both fall asleep for three hours.

“Do you think there are any guys in the hall? I need to get my laundry, but I’m not wearing pants.”

This one is self-explanatory.

“Your leftovers smelled bad, so I threw them out.”

The pungent smell seeping through the refrigerator is inevitable when you leave guacamole from Chipotle in there for two weeks.

“Can you tell me if my thesis makes sense?"

Midnight paper writing is hard.

“Can we go to the Caf earlier? I’m so hungry already.”

We’re all walking grandmas in college. Dinner at 5:00 p.m. is a must.

“Can I wear that tomorrow?”

What’s mine is yours.

“What’s your cat’s name again?”

This is a typical example of a burning question at two in the morning.

“We’re already 10 minutes late.”

We say this before every chapter meeting.

“Would it be bad if I skipped class tomorrow so I can watch 'Scandal?'”

Please say no, please say no. Just go to class with your computer and watch "Scandal" there.

“Does your throat hurt too?”

Happy flu season!

“How many ibuprofens can you take in a day?”

I don’t know. Google it. I took six once and I’m still alive.

“It’s only Tuesday.”

It’s OK. You can cry about it together.

“I love you!”

The best one. Finding a roommate that loves you on days when you don’t love yourself is such a blessing. The love that we feel for the people that we live with is so special and so unique.

I’m sorry for all of the times that I’ve annoyed you, killed one of our plants, or been insensitive because I’m too worried about myself. Thank you for still loving me.

Shout out to all of the roommates out there. You’re the bomb.

Getting Straight A's In College Is Not Worth Failing Your Mental Health

A's are nice, but you are more than a letter.

The idea of getting an A on every paper, every exam, every assignment, seems great. It can be known as a reassurance of our hard work and dedication to our 4+ classes we attend every single day.

Losing sleep, skipping meals, forgetting to drink water, skipping out on time with friends and family; these are the things that can occur when your letter of an A is what you are living for.

You are worth more than the grade letter, or the GPA number on your transcript.

Listen, don't get me wrong, getting A's and B's definitely is something to feel accomplished for. It is the approval that you did it, you completed your class, and your hard work paid off.

But honey, get some sleep.

Don't lose yourself, don't forget who you are. Grades are important, but the true measurement of self-worth and accomplishment is that you tried your best.

Trying your best, and working hard for your goals is something that is A-worthy.

Reserve time for yourself, for your sanity, your health, your mental health.

At the end of the day, grades might look nice on a piece of paper, but who you are and how you represent yourself can be even more honorable.

Host Families Are The Best When Going Abroad

Host families will get you closer to language, culture, food and fun!

Have you ever thought about going abroad? Or maybe you've already decided to go and are dealing with all the paperwork right now? There are so many options to explore a different culture and various perspectives on life. You can go abroad and study at a foreign university. If you're not interested in studying, you can apply for a job and gain first working experience abroad. Also, you can do an internship in a different country, or work as a volunteer in a help organization. So many options. But they have one thing in common: A host family.

A host family is a family who takes in young people, who left their country to work or study abroad, for a certain time. Obviously, a host family is not a must. If you don't feel it, you can rent an apartment and that's totally fine. However, I would like to tell you today why I think a host family is one of the best things while going abroad.

First of all, you learn the foreign language a lot better. I mean, that's one of the reasons for going abroad, right? You want to improve that language you've been studying at home. And there is no better way than to speak it every day with native speakers. And that's what your host family offers you. Living together, communication is a necessity, and thus the best motivation to improve your language skills!

Second, when living with a host family you get to try the traditional dishes of the country. In my opinion, the cuisine is a very important part of a country's culture. It's thus a huge difference if you go abroad and keep on cooking your stuff from home, or whether you experience a new culture through their nutrition. Take the chance and get to know new recipes, new spices, and new dishes. It's so exciting!

Third, a host family is the best place to get to know the culture of a foreign country. You'll learn all about their holidays, celebrations and traditions not simply by listening about them but by living them! Your host parents will make you part of the preparations and you get to ask questions throughout the whole experience. There is no better option to get to learn about a culture!

Forth, and probably the most important one, a host family is a trusted friend in a foreign world. When you're leaving home you expect everything in the new country to work as easy and usual as you know it from back home. But that is often not the case. And very often you're ending up in a chaos of opening bank accounts, applying for new phone numbers, looking for apartments, figuring out a hundred things for your studies, … all by your own. A host family is there for you if you need help and assists you during your first days, weeks, sometimes even months of your stay abroad.

If you want to apply for a semester or internship abroad and didn't consider a host family at all, do it now. Those of you who already have been through the experience of going abroad and living with a host family know what I'm talking about. I definitely can say that my host families became friends for life and I'm infinitely grateful for the help and warmth they offered me.
