7 Realizations You'll Have Once You Live With Your Best Friends In College

The thought of living alone freaks you out.

7 Realizations You'll Have Once You Live With Your Best Friends In College
Rachel Mount

College has brought me the best times with the best people, and every night in or out shows me how lucky I am. Our house is full of different personalities, majors, aspirations and mindsets- but I don't think it would be possible to live with a group of friends I love and trust more.

1. To the outside eye, your group probably seems like the worst

Okay I'll admit it. We're pretty obnoxious when we're together, but I swear it's only with the best intensions.

2. Everything is better when you're together

It doesn't really matter if we're going out or staying in, as long as all of us are there I don't feel the need to be anywhere else.

3. You can't imagine ever living alone

Imagining a world where I walk into the kitchen and my roommates aren't there cooking dinner, or coming home from a late night of studying to a blanket and movie fest is a world I don't want to be part of.

4. Holiday breaks throw you off your element

Why is no one running in the house at 2am? Why is no one using the shower when I want to?! This isn't okay.

5. You know way too much about each other's personal lives

Without realizing it, too. I'll be talking with my roommate about a guy, and I start to think I know more about that guy than he knows about himself.

6. Having house parties makes for the best morning talks

I.e a dog pile of everyone in the living room crying laughing over what happened the night before.

7. Each of you brings something unique to the table

As in we have some late night food smashers, some (unreasonably) early risers, the moms, the sleepless and the reckless. Together, we make a pretty solid bunch.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:
