9 Things I Need to Thank My Roommate For..

Even though we're only into the second week of classes my roommate has made me realize so much. I can be best friends with someone who has a different background than me. Even if I'm a mess, she's a mess too. Being a bitch isn't always a bad thing, and so so so much more.

So there are 12 things I need to thank you for my dear:

1. Thank you for being the shoulder to bitch to when people get on my nerves. This isn't only referring about school work, but people, the food, professors, even our friends. I was never given this much moral support during high school.

2. Thank you for your undying love of cats and Hoodie Allen. If it wasn't for you I probably would've never known how wonderful he truly was. As for the cats, when you show me the pictures of your cats, it just reminds me of mine, and how I still need to convince my dad to bring my cat and dog to visit us!

3. Thank you for being the best friend I've been waiting for. For being the person to shut me the hell up when I've been bitching all day. No one has ever had the courage in a friendship to do so.

4. For being the person to remind me that no matter how messy my side of the room can get, your side can only be worse. Because believe me, my room at home is never this clean. EVER.

5. For not judging me when I snooze my alarm for our 8 am class six extra times, because believe me it'll only get worse.

6. For not judging me in the morning when I am the definition of a hot mess.

7. Telling me that the definition of 'Petty' should have a picture of my face next to it. I guess no one has ever really seen that side of me until I arrived here at Elmira.

8. For giving me a study partner, breakfast, lunch, and dinner date.

9. Finally, Thank you for simply being you. Here's to a great freshmen year with you, my best friend.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
