8 Perks of Having a Roommate

Having a roommate is like having a live-in best friend, which means there are so many perks that come with this living situation.

1. Your personal hair stylist

Your roommate is always there to save you when your hair is just not agreeing with you, especially when they can french braid.

2. The ultimate outfit decider

Because if you're like me, you can't chose an outfit to save your life. But, now you have you roommate to help you pick the best outfit for the day!

3. 24/7 therapist

Best friends are always there to help you through anything, and now you have a best friend there literally all the time.

4. Human alarm clock

Sleeping through your alarms won't be a problem when you have someone there to wake you up (and forcefully if needed).

5. Loneliness = Gone

You can't be lonely when your best friend lives with you, especially if their bed is literally 2 feet from yours. You now have someone to hang out with all the time.

6. The solution to your laziness

You want something from across the room? You left the TV remote on your desk? You want the light off? No problem, your roommate can get that for you.

7. Procrastination is a thing of the past

You now have someone always there to get your ass in gear when you are ignoring your work.

8. Sharing!!

They have good food? cute clothes? your favorite movies on DVD? a car? Whatever is theirs is now available for you to borrow!

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.

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.
