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.

To The Boy I’ve Been Dating Since I Was 15, I Always Knew You Were My Forever

Thank you for showing me love when I thought I didn't deserve any.


Hey you,

People assumed our "fling" would only last a few short months. It's what everyone assumes when your first love happens during your sophomore year of high school. Yet here we stand, three and a half years later, more together than we've ever been. Although we've had our ups and downs, we still managed to keep our relationship going and to remember why we're together in the first place.

Many say loving isn't easy, but you make it a walk in the park.

You respect me in more ways than one, and you make me feel beautiful, inside and out. For a long time, I never noticed the beauty and strength I have within myself. I didn't see what others would point out to me, and at times I still find it hard to acknowledge my worth. However, you came into my life at a time when I felt I had no one, and you helped me to see all I have to offer. You helped me to open my mind to the thought of loving myself for who I am, and although the road is long and I'm not completely there, you've made me see how worthy of love I truly am.

Having you as my best friend, along with being my boyfriend, is the most rewarding feeling in the world.

I think the reason we rarely fight or stay angry with each other is that we truly are best friends. We could spend all of our time in deep conversation about any topic in the world and still feel engaged and ready to hear more from one another. Every single day I learn something new about you and vice versa. We can be ourselves in each other's presence and have fun doing absolutely nothing exciting. I am easily annoyed by a lot of things, but you are not one of them. Being with you for hours, even if we just watch TV the entire time, never gets repetitive or boring.

You treated me with the respect I deserved before I even realized I was worthy of it.

In many ways, I don't respect myself. Whether it be body image or letting "friends" walk all over me, I let many thoughts and people control my life. You, however, were the saving grace I needed. You've shown me how I deserve to be treated and how I should think of myself. Often I wonder how I got so lucky to end up with someone who loves me unconditionally and who values everything I have to offer. I say all the time that I don't deserve your heart, your kindness, your love, but you always remind me that I do. And I'm starting to realize that you're right; I deserve every bit of love, kindness, and respect that you have to offer. I can only hope that I award you with the same love and selflessness you give me every single day.

Three and a half years with someone may seem extremely long, but I feel as though we've been together a lifetime. It's hard to remember a time when you weren't right there beside me, and I would never want to imagine a future without you in it. There are so many more laughs, adventures, and memories to be made with you, and I only hope that I can be at least half of the person you are.

Thank you for pulling me out of the darkness. Today, tomorrow, and always.
