The Conversation Between Roommates On Move-In Day

The Conversation Between Roommates On Move-In Day

My roommate has moved in two days early to help freshman move in on campus. She has called me every second, updating me on details of the room and the little panic attacks she was having along the way.

My freshman year of college was a roller coaster of emotion, but somehow the stars aligned and I found my roommate. We're the exact opposite in the way that I could keep the room messy forever, and she needs it to be tidy at all times, but we're the exact same when it comes to understanding each other. I would be lost without my roommate, so obviously we're both very excited for summer to be over so we can begin our second year of being the best roommates in the history of the world -- but we're a little biased. The conversation while my roommate was moving in and I was finishing up some last minute packing, went something like this:

Just an FYI, I'm here and about to walk into the room. Wish me luck.

Okay, the bathroom is really nice, like much nicer than our other one. This room is way smaller than last year. I didn't think that was possible.

I'm doing some serious feng shui right now -- Dad can you help me move this bed into an L shape? I'm looking around the room as we speak, there is no way we are going to fit all of our stuff.

My responses usually go something like this:

Omg, I can't wait to see you.

Hey, if we have wi-fi that's all I care about.

Omg, you're stressing me out -- where are we gonna put all our stuff?

Ugh, I wish I was there already!

Keep me posted.

Three hours later: okay, it's not so bad.

It feels so weird having to use my ID card for everything again.

We need to go grocery shopping I'm lacking in chocolate and Ramen.

I think I'll be okay once my TV is set up.

It's a lot smaller than last time, and it feel so weird to be back. I miss my Roomie!

I miss you, too, Roomie!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
