Sometimes it's hard living alone

5 Things You'll Miss Most About Your Roommate Over the Break

Obviously coming to college is a whole new chapter in your life. We already know that. But one of the biggest adjustments you make is learning how to live with another person. Regardless if you know the person or not, it is not easy.

I'll be the first one to tell you that I have had my share of horror stories about roommates, which I can now laugh about. But I have also had some great experiences that I will never forget. If you have a great relationship with your roommate like I do, then it will definitely be weird being away from them for about a month. Here are the things we will most likely miss about our roommates over the break:

1. Your "Sounding Board"

Your roommate is usually the first person you see in the mornings and the last one you see before bed, so it is inevitable that they will always be there to hear you complain about that one butt head who won't text you back or about how Starbucks screwed up your mobile order. No matter the issue, they are always there to listen

2. Your Alarm Clock

After living with each other for a few weeks, you begin to figure out each others schedules. If your alarm fails to go off, they know when you need to be up and moving. Or in my case, their alarm sounds like a bomb that is about to explode and wakes you up in a split second.

3. Your Personal Stylist

"Does this look okay?" is probably something I hear about five times a day...but hey, that's what roommates are for! Your roommate is always there to give you fashion advice, tell you if you can see your butt crack when you sit down, and maybe even let you borrow some accessories from their closet!

4. Your Life Coach

Sometimes life just gets you down and all you want to do is lay in bed and binge watch Gilmore Girls. Well, your roommate is always there to encourage you and get your spirits lifted. Whether is sending you pictures of cute puppies or forcing you to put on that red lipstick to go out and dance the night away to Justin Bieber, you can always count on them to cheer you up.

5. Your "Personal Photographer"

If you have a SnapChat obsessed roommate like I do, then you know exactly what I am talking about. We may document each other doing weird things, but it'll be fun to go back and look through all of the weird or embarrassing pictures/videos from a night out and remember all of the good times.

Here's to one semester down with someone I consider more of a best friend than a roommate, and here is to one more great one to come.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
