18 Ways To Know If You've Found The Perfect Roommate(s)
Cameron DeVille

Sometimes, it can seem like the perfect roommate doesn't exist. After dealing with horror story roommates, it's easy to give up hope... and then you find them.

They clean (sometimes without you having to ask first).

When living with someone else, cleanliness can be a hot topic. You know you've found the right roommates if you handle this with calm understanding and level heads. Discuss your expectations and have everyone do their part.

They expect you to do your part.

They make you laugh.

Most of your time together is spent laughing.

They listen.

Whether it's just a discussion about your day or it's an existential crisis at 4a.m., they'll listen.

You're all willing to share (food, clothing, makeup, time, etc.).

You help each other.

Whether it's driving one another places, helping to edit a resume, or trying to figure out how to clean a vacuum...

You support each other.

When they win, you're thrilled. When you succeed, they're the ones cheering you on.

They can be just as loud as you are (sometimes louder)...

But you all know how to find that quiet balance.

Quiet work time in the living room anyone?

They know when to leave you alone.

When you're moody and just want to stay in your room, they aren't going to pester you.

They know when to take you out.

Sometimes, you need the extra push to go out and let yourself have fun.

They can be silly.

You trust each other.

You treat each other.

You picked up extra ice cream? Time to share. You're going to a show and know just who to take?

They know about and support your coffee addiction.

It's a problem, but it's a problem you share.

They put up with your quirks.

You miss them when you leave.

You lift each other up.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
