5 Things You Learn From Living In A Dorm In College

Living in the dorm is a marvelous mess of an adventure.

5 Things You Learn From Living In A Dorm In College
Laura Lineberger

Living away from your parents and on your own can be hard at first. Some people come across the world to go to school, and others just live down the street. I am part of the few who could still live at home and just commute to school. In choosing that I wanted to go to Gardner-Webb. I decided that I would rather live on campus than commute to school. Since I did not know anybody from Gardner-Webb before attending, they put me in a random selection, which has proven to me how to live with a complete stranger. Here are five lessons that I have learned along the way.

1. You have binge watched Netflix all day? Me too.

When you find someone who does the same things as you, there is no judgement there. You have watched Netflix all day? So have I. Let's keep watching.

2. The room will never be 100 percent spotless.

Both my roommate and I know our room will never be 100 percent clean. But we both know that it is okay, it's our room anyways.

3. I hope you can sleep with noise still happening.

Sleeping is something that everyone needs. Middle of the day naps are advised. Your roommate will wake you up, but it will be okay, because they are probably gonna take a nap too.

4. Being random as all get out.

Either you break out into a random dance party or just be happy that day, you will be the laugh of your dorm when your roommate sees you doing something crazy.

5. You will learn to love each other.

Your roommate will become one of the best friends that you have ever had and they will soon know everything there is to know about you.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
