The first time you live in a dorm, you finally feel a sense of freedom and independence that you never received while living with your parents. But once you begin to live by yourself with total strangers, you learn to deal with so many different types of people and living with them becomes a daily routine.

1. The Antisocial Ones

These kids stay in their room all day and you would probably never see their face ever in your life.

2. The International Students

These kids come from different countries around the world and some of the most interesting people you ever will talk to. You learn so much about their culture and their country and become fascinated with whatever they have to say.

3. The Potheads

All these kids do is smoke, sleep, and then smoke again. Your hall will probably smell every day, but you will eventually get used to it.

4. The Obnoxious Partier

These kids believe that if they study for five minutes they deserve a night out, and when they party they go hard. You will probably hear them at 4 in the morning while you're trying to get some sleep for your 9 a.m. class.

5. The Nerd

This is the kid you go to for all your educational needs and they will probably teach you whatever you need to learn better than your professor ever could.

6. The Boy/Girl Next Door

These are the kids that everyone has a crush on and you begin to admire them from afar just because of how beautiful they are.

7. The Judgmental Ones

These kids will judge you for everything you have ever done and will probably rat you out to your RA if you do something that they find moderately annoying.

8. Your Best Friends

These are the people that you naturally gravitate to and begin to tell everything to. The number of memories you begin to create with them will be unforgettable and they will eventually become your rocks in college.

Throughout college you will find a vast amount of people that you will either get along with or not. No matter how your relationships go, you begin to learn so much about yourself and people in general. Take everything as a learning experience and experience college the best way you can.

To The Teacher Who Was So Much More

Thank you for everything

I think it's fair to say that most people remember at least one teacher who had a lasting impact on them. I have been incredibly lucky to have several teachers who I will never forget, but one individual takes the cake. So here's to you: thank you for all you have done.

Thank you for teaching me lessons not just in the textbook.

Although you taught a great lecture, class was never just limited to the contents of the course. Debates and somewhat heated conversations would arise between classmates over politics and course material, and you always encouraged open discussion. You embraced the idea of always having an opinion, and always making it be heard, because why waste your voice? You taught me to fight for things I believed in, and to hold my ground in an argument. You taught me to always think of others before doing and speaking. You showed me the power of kindness. Thank you for all the important lessons that may not have been included in the curriculum.

Thank you for believing in me.

Especially in my senior year, you believed in me when other teachers didn't. You showed me just what I could accomplish with a positive and strong attitude. Your unwavering support kept me going, especially when I melted into a puddle of tears weekly in your office. You listened to my stupid complaints, understood my overwhelming stress-induced breakdowns, and told me it was going to be okay. Thank you for always being there for me.

Thank you for inspiring me.

You are the epitome of a role model. Not only are you intelligent and respected, but you have a heart of gold and emit beautiful light where ever you go. You showed me that service to others should not be looked at as a chore, but something to enjoy and find yourself in. And I have found myself in giving back to people, thanks to your spark. Thank you for showing me, and so many students, just how incredible one person can be.

Thank you for changing my life.

Without you, I truly would not be where I am today. As cliche as it sounds, you had such a remarkable impact on me and my outlook on life. Just about a year has passed since my graduation, and I'm grateful to still keep in touch. I hope you understand the impact you have made on me, and on so many other students. You are amazing, and I thank you for all you have done.

I Chose A Major That Won't Make Me Millions, But I Would Not Want It Any Other Way

Because if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.

As high school comes to a close, your parents, teachers and friends start to ask you what you want to do with your life. They tell you it's time to start deciding because you'll have to pick a major once you get to college.

Some people start their college career without declaring a major. Some choose a major, only to change it months, or even years, later. I went into college with a declared major. I may have changed my specific career a few times, but I have never changed my major.

I chose something that I was passionate about.

I chose something that I always enjoyed. I chose something that I knew I could make a career out of, while also knowing I can enjoy what I do because it is something I care about.

I may not have chosen to be a doctor or a lawyer. I may not be rolling around in money as an adult. I may not make a top-notch salary.

But money isn't the most important part of choosing a career.

I chose a career path that I knew I would enjoy. I didn't want to wake up every morning and dread having to go to work because I chose something just for the money it could bring me.

So, don't let anyone talk down on you for your chosen career. Every career out there has some kind of importance. Doctors, lawyers, salesmen, teachers, writers, first responders...you're all important and you all contribute to the building blocks of society.

My major may not lead me to make millions throughout my lifetime, but I will be doing something that I love. That is what is important.
