The 7 Best Things About Living With My Best Friend

There's no such thing as too much fun.

The 7 Best Things About Living With My Best Friend
Andi Norman

For the past year and a half, I have shared a tiny dorm room with my rowdy best friend. We are two college basketball players who are way louder than we should be together. Of all the things I love about living with her, here are my seven favorite.

1. I have someone to share clothes with.

Growing up, I was always head and shoulders taller than all of my friends, which meant they all shared clothes, and I wore what I owned. Since living with my teammate who is about the same height, my closet has now doubled! But, so has hers. Having two wardrobes to choose from is great until the shirt I was planning on wearing that day has gone missing

2. She knows just how to cheer me up.

Living in such a small space, there is not much room for secrets. Whenever I am having a bad day, I know that she will be there to pick me up when I get home. And I am so thankful for it!

3. I have a guaranteed cuddle buddy.

We can cuddle any time, and most days we do. However cuddle-seshes never seem to last very long considering we are much too big to be sharing a twin XL...

4. Whenever I want to order a pizza, I know I am not alone.

I always have a companion to split a large honey barbecue pizza with. It’s all fun and games until one piece remains.

5. She shamelessly holds my hand in public.

I always mindlessly grab her hand when we are walking places together. Never has she once complained about my constant need to hold hands.

6. I go to bed later than I would like almost every night.

You know how at sleepovers, you stay up all night talking about everything with your friends? Yeah, well living with your best friend is like that every night. We have conversations that keep us up late almost every single night. Sometimes I’m dragging the next day, but I would not trade it for anything.

7. She never lets me cause shenanigans alone.

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
