To My First College Roommate Who Will Definitely Be In My Wedding

Thank you for everything.

Jenny Cappetta

I remember the first day we met at in-processing for freshmen in the field house. My dad was next to me, you looked over and waved. “Hi, I think I’m your roommate!” Little did I know, three years later, I’d be writing this letter as we both go onto two different paths, but yet are still so close.

Three years ago we were such different people. We laughed together as we would walk around campus and talk about how these years will be the best ones yet. I didn’t realize how fast they would fly by. We would look at all of the uniforms and realized in a few years, these will be our friends. But for now, we’re all just freshmen.

Nobody will ever understand our late night talks, the laughs that you and I only share. Nobody ever told me, but those were the moments that I would cherish most about college. And even if we grew apart for a while, or we had our spats, at the end of the day we would always find our way back to one another because that’s what sisters do.

I remember your tomato-macaroni soup during late night study sessions. I was in love with easy-mac. (Still both true.) We would laugh at one another because we knew exactly when our snack times were and if we missed one and got undoubtedly cranky, yell at one another to eat our damn macaroni.

We would sit in the hallways and made friends with our neighbors together. We would laugh hysterically in the staircases at late night hours because one of us was sitting on the platforms and pondering. Remember when random people would walk up to our door at night? People would ask how we knew them, we really didn’t-they just liked to visit our room every now and then.

Our late night 3 a.m. missions, how could I forget? Or when it was so nice out and we just walked everywhere and laughed and people would look at us so confused. But you were the one person who never judged me but laughed along. Our late night study sessions in the library. You were my library date every night. Thank you for that.

Three years later, you’ve found someone who lights up your world. It’s so amazing to see you so happy with him. I hope he knows that I will always third wheel whenever I want because you were my best friend first. You watched as I found myself three years later, saying goodbye to the person who I fell in love with, and who you watched me leave behind to better myself, and find my new career path. Thank you for always being my support system.

To the person who will be in my wedding one day, the person who will be Auntie, the person who I will always laugh over "Finding Dory" with thank you for the best years of college. Thank you for always being there. Thank you for growing with me these past few years. And thank you for requesting me as your roommate.

518 forever.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
