25 Reasons You Know You Have an Awesome Roommate

Love My Roomie

Whenever you hear someone's roommate stories from freshmen year, they are almost never good. These stories usually scare people into thinking they are going to have the worst possible roommate imaginable. Even if you do like your freshmen year roommate, I can almost promise you that you will not be roommates your sophomore year. Living with people is hard, but when you find the right person, it's awesome. Luckily, I had a great roommate my freshman year, and we are still friends, but no longer roommates. Now, as a sophomore, I am roommates with my best friend and things couldn't be better. Here's how you know you have the best roommate.

1. You always have someone to talk to.

2. You know each other's schedules, and it's awesome to see each other when ever you both have a break.

3. You always have someone to cry to when things get tough. And yes, they will each that pint of Ben & Jerry's with you just to make you feel better.

4. You always have someone to do something with because let's face it, everyone knows that no one can do anything alone now-a-days.

5. You both have each other's backs regardless of the situation.

6. You TRY to help each other when it comes to homework and assignments even if you have no idea what health care administration majors do.

7. They'll always be your wingwoman (unless if you're going for a f*ckboy).

8. They accept that you have a fugly potato glow to your appearance every morning.

9. They will be extremely quite if they see that you're sleeping. Respect for each other is EVERYTHING.

10. They're your biggest support system.

11. They will always give you advice even if they have never been in your specific situation.

12. They will always tell you how they hope you have an amazing day.

13. They will never forget to wish you good luck on the morning of a big exam.

14. Saying goodbye for breaks is upsetting.

15. You both know each other's favorite things and biggest pet peeves.

16. Not seeing them all day is upsetting.

17. You have more picture together than any of your friends from home.

18. Everything that you think is funny is just as funny to them.

19. Having someone 24/7 to eat with you is always fun.

20. Having someone to complain to when you are at your "done" point of your day, is great.

21. You hate seeing each other sad and you will do everything in your power to make each other feel better.

22. When one of you is crying, the other will cry as well.

23. By your sophomore year, you will have found someone who is the same person as you.

24. You will talk about how you will go on family vacations together ten years from now.

25. You found a best friend for life.

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend's Mom

A simple thank you is not enough.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.

I’d Much Rather Celebrate Valentine’s Day With My Single Girlfriends Than Any Guy

Bring on the pizza and ice cream because Valentine's Day is Girls Only this year.


Being single during any time of the year is difficult, but it can be even harder with Valentine's Day quickly approaching. People either love it or love to hate it. It's a day filled with dramatic romantic gestures, carefully planned dates, and an abundance of roses and chocolates. Well, at least for some it is. The pressure to have a "Valentine" as well as have the perfect evening is so high that in my option it completely takes the fun out of the day. So this Valentine's Day, I won't be stressing over the perfect outfit, restaurant or date. Instead, I'll be deciding if I should have another slice of pizza while my girlfriends try to figure out which cheesy rom-com we should watch next.

I don't hate Valentine's Day, I actually think it's really romantic. I think it's great that some people find happiness in grand gestures and extravagant presents. When I feel about someone strongly enough, I'm sure I'd do the same, but as of right now I don't. I don't want to be someone valentine or worry about finding the perfect gift. I want to focus on myself and just have a fun night with my girls. We worry so much about what everyone has to say about the things we do that often times we don't make any decisions for ourselves. Be a little selfish and do only what you want. Order too much food, break out the wine, and enjoy a stress-free night with the people that mean the most to you.

You will find me on the couch with my sorority sisters most likely catching up on "The Bachelor" or ruining our diets with dollar store sweets. And yes, I know there's an unofficial holiday already called, "Galentine's Day" (which I will be celebrating too) that's for ladies celebrating ladies. Who says you can't do it two nights in a row? Who says that Valentine's Day has to be a day spent with a romantic partner?

This is me telling you to take this day to have some fun and ignore the pressures society (and ourselves) put on ourselves constantly. Surround yourself with the people who support you; the ones who stick around through it all and love you unconditionally. If you still want to stay in the festive mood, you can exchange valentines with your friends and treat each other with chocolate hearts. And if you want to celebrate Valentine's Day with your significant other, go ahead, I'm not stopping you.

So, no matter what Valentine's Day for you is, celebrate it however you want. Dress up to the nines and have the night of your life. Stay in, order takeout, and fall asleep watching a movie. Hang out with your girlfriends, guy friends, or both! It doesn't matter how you do Valentine's Day, but rather who you spend it with.
