8 Signs You And Your Roommate Are Actually The Same Person

It’s scientifically proven (maybe? Probably. I don’t actually know) that when the amount of time you spend with a person increases, the more likely you are to actually start to share qualities with them. This (fake) study especially applies to roommates. Whether you’ve shared a room with your sibling, are living in a dorm room in college, or just didn’t want to be living in your parent’s basement anymore, chances are you’ve probably had a roommate at some point in your life. I, myself, have been lucky enough to have amazing roommates throughout my college career. Which is lucky for me because I’ve actually started to become like them.

1. Your eating schedules are the same

It’s safe to say that once you’ve been living with someone long enough, you get hungry at the same time. Sometimes you aren’t even hungry but you just feel like eating some fries together.

2. You wear each other’s clothes

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F05%2F636219205114239935-259586214_anigif_original-grid-image-5921-1427980022-21.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=68&h=7a6710bc702142df098e2210bc2c0201031352d19609bcac48b97cc2924ada1f&size=980x&c=2571739630 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F05%252F636219205114239935-259586214_anigif_original-grid-image-5921-1427980022-21.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D68%26h%3D7a6710bc702142df098e2210bc2c0201031352d19609bcac48b97cc2924ada1f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2571739630%22%7D" expand=1]

I’m guilty of this. My roommate’s clothes have kind of become my second closet. Thankfully, she doesn’t mind (I think).

3. You know all the drama

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F05%2F636219205645822699-1054749075_raw.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=730&h=9e095d6bacd7f231fe5a253bc94681d4739897940ec08708e601205f2596e045&size=980x&c=2608933091 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F05%252F636219205645822699-1054749075_raw.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D730%26h%3D9e095d6bacd7f231fe5a253bc94681d4739897940ec08708e601205f2596e045%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2608933091%22%7D" expand=1]

Their drama is your drama and vice versa. When one of them has a problem, you deal with it as if it’s your own.

4. You start to experience what it’s like to be a mind-reader

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F05%2F6362192062379085751951162342_7dd9b459a33a079effa60b6ccb070f50.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=742&h=d303a7c1ceb6f1f4936f2f64af08bc099cfbae99cb776cb20fb189d405705c33&size=980x&c=4227872685 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F05%252F6362192062379085751951162342_7dd9b459a33a079effa60b6ccb070f50.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D742%26h%3Dd303a7c1ceb6f1f4936f2f64af08bc099cfbae99cb776cb20fb189d405705c33%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4227872685%22%7D" expand=1]

All it takes at this point is one look from my roommate and I know that she’s in the mood to lay in bed and watch Netflix.

5. Boundaries are limited

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F05%2F636219207306278623-1650968446_kris_jenner_bushes.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=98&h=57fe7bcc59841f2d2da7df8ec752fe0068a1584ca97e5a2203843659a98d21d5&size=980x&c=1734569617 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F05%252F636219207306278623-1650968446_kris_jenner_bushes.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D98%26h%3D57fe7bcc59841f2d2da7df8ec752fe0068a1584ca97e5a2203843659a98d21d5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1734569617%22%7D" expand=1]

You start to feel like you can talk to your roommate about anything (and that’s because you can).

6. Their family is your family

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F05%2F636219208011499654-1390606304_btTXy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=571&h=c63d7f108d86f1faf5b8e0f5ee5f6e982ecf940a30cd69fb8ea4ba581bee7c40&size=980x&c=3320697652 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F05%252F636219208011499654-1390606304_btTXy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D571%26h%3Dc63d7f108d86f1faf5b8e0f5ee5f6e982ecf940a30cd69fb8ea4ba581bee7c40%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3320697652%22%7D" expand=1]

You’re invited to join any and every family gathering--including FaceTime sessions.

7. You miss them...always

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F05%2F636219209881434999-1984943583_tumblr_mld2pjPmUo1rso5d1o1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=408&h=9b52e809190837847250255aa78fb70359d779bd6ce76e2edec3d8816a38767e&size=980x&c=54560591 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F05%252F636219209881434999-1984943583_tumblr_mld2pjPmUo1rso5d1o1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D408%26h%3D9b52e809190837847250255aa78fb70359d779bd6ce76e2edec3d8816a38767e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D54560591%22%7D" expand=1]

Even when they’re only gone for an hour during class...you still anxiously wait for them to get home.

8. People get you confused with one another

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F05%2F636219211525310486-1666439652_raw.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=917&h=80f2f7bf821a860d3108af1139f5abb2656b0b3b92881e74268be475311f8ba5&size=980x&c=3374831627 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F05%252F636219211525310486-1666439652_raw.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D917%26h%3D80f2f7bf821a860d3108af1139f5abb2656b0b3b92881e74268be475311f8ba5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3374831627%22%7D" expand=1]It was bad enough when my mom called me by my sister’s name, but now I’m referred to by my roommate’s name too.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

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!"
