5 Signs You and Your Roommates Can't Wait To Live Together

While I had a great experience going random in the housing process my freshman year, choosing who you are going to live the following years with is so, so exciting. Since I was a little girl watching my older siblings going off to college, I dreamt of the days when I, too, would get to dorm with my best friends. What could be more fun?!

When my best friend Alyssa and I decided last year to room together this year, we originally assumed we would just get a double together. But then, Alyssa got an incredible number in the housing lottery (which is basically The Hunger Games IRL), and we realized we would be able to live in one of the few coveted sophomore suites on campus. We pulled in our other two best friends, Devin and Micaela (who were planning on sharing a double of their own), and it has been magical ever since...and we haven't even moved in together yet! If you are about to live with your best friends, or you have been living with your best friends for years, you know how unbelievably exciting it is. Here are number telltale signs you and your roommates cannot wait to live together:

1. You text each other non-stop.

The group chat is blowing up constantly. You're basically telling each other all the things that you would just pop over to the next room to say in person; asking for clothing/hair advice, planning fun roommate activities to do together, and planning how you're going to christen the suite (read: wine). The daily conversations would be remiss without stating the obvious "I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH"/"I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR BEAUTIFUL FACES AGAIN"/"I CAN'T WAIT TO LIVE WITH YOU ALL." All caps is absolutely necessary. Also, your group chat name is probably something super cute and witty, like "The Suitest Girls," or something like that.

2. You've already planned all the fun roommate things you're going to do together as well as all the cute pictures you're going to take together.

Once you get to choose your roommates, your cohabitation transcends the residence hall. You don't just live together, you live it up together. My roommates and I are seeing Pentatonix together in September. We're going to make infused gummy bears. We're going to take cute wine-in-hand pictures on our couch during girls' night and caption them "The Real Housewives of Rosie East 104." Our suitemate love cannot be tamed.

3. You've become oddly domestic, and you're not ashamed of it.

Three months ago, my suitemates and I were discussing shower curtains in the event that our bathroom didn't come with one. Alyssa was looking for a new comforter, so of course she asked for our opinions. We're making a color-coded cleaning chart for the bathroom. And like the proper basic bitches we are, Micaela bought us a tapestry for our common room wall. It really spruces up the space. Even though the space doesn't really need sprucing, because duh, I'm living with the most amazing and effervescent women ever.

4. You've already planned all the wonderful experiences you're going to share together as roommates.

Spa nights? Check. Sharing closets? Check. Going to Home Depot to buy succulents? Check.

5. The closer you get to move-in day, the happier you become.

Your roommates are some of the sweetest, most caring and loving people you know. You feel so grateful just to have them as friends, but having them as roommates too? You are truly blessed.

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
