7 Things You Can Do When Your Roommate's Out Of Town

I love my roommate, but I miss me-time, too.

7 Things You Can Do When Your Roommate's Out Of Town

It's almost always a pleasant surprise when your roommate finally goes home for the holidays, or decides to dip out for the weekend. Don't get me wrong, I love my roommate, with extra frilly emphasis on that word "love," but we all need a little downtime every now and again. I'm not proud of these, but here are some great (personally tested) reasons to look forward to being alone during those lonely times:

1. You don't have to close the door when you go to the bathroom

OK, maybe this was just me, but I was weirdly thrilled when I realized I didn't have to close the door behind me when I went to go make a deposit. So many opportunities, so much air to breathe. Yeah, I think it was just me.

2. You can play your music as loudly as you want

When I say as loudly as you want, I mean I want it to be Adele-screaming-"Hello"-through-bad-service loud and that-bass-is-going-to-traumatize-future-Hannah loud.

3. Random dancing

Honestly, I just wanted to use this GIF and make everyone uncomfortable

4. You can look through your roommate's stuff

Syke? Never would I ever condone snooping and questionable behavior? But what if she has some seriously dangerous objects in her closet? I need to investigate for my own safety's sake, of course.

5. You can be pantsless, like, always

Pants restrict my blood flow and the doctor suggests I don't wear them anyway.

6. You can get ripped so your roommates will be super impressed and intimidated by you when they get back

This is me every time I exit the gym on my annual visit. No need to crowd me, and of course I'll sign your baby.

7. You can shamelessly binge-watch Netflix when you end up not going to the gym

When number 6 doesn't work out, which we both know is bound to happen, you can eat your feelings and distract yourself by watching fictional characters deal with their own problems. And that's OK.

Take advantage of the privacy while it lasts, because soon enough you'll have to navigate into your underwear under your towel and we'll all be back to square one.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
