How You Know Your Roomie Has Become Your Froomie

Roommates by chance, friends by choice.

A froomie is defined as, “both a friend and roommate. This term should only be applied when you have a really great, wonderful, ideal, exceptional, roommate who is also a very good (in some cases your BEST), honorable, terrific, and sublime friend” by Urban Dictionary. Yes, the trustee old Urban Dictionary.

This year, I ventured into the world of apartment life as a new and improved “upperclassmen” AKA not a freshman. With great apartment life, comes great responsibility, and by responsibility, I mean new roommates.

Luckily, my new roommates (in our quaint little 4-bedroom-2-bathroom apartment) are not only my roomies, but also my froomies. You might be thinking, “Kassie, how can you tell?” Well let me show you:

1. You actually want to spend time with them outside of the apartment.

You voluntarily want to spend time with them and make cute weekend plans like attending football games or floating down the Brazos River together.

2. You text one another on a daily basis.

It has become more of an “OMG guess who I just saw at the library” conversation rather than a “hey, can you get some more toilet paper for the apartment.”

3. You talk about everything with each other.

Whether it’s about the guy you always run into at the bus stop or the insane amount of schoolwork you have, you all never run out of things to talk about.

4. All you do is laugh when you’re together.

I can personally attest to nearly choking on my food every time I eat a meal with my roommates.

5. They are your go to for just about anything.

Sometimes, you just need someone to take the chicken out of the freezer for you when you’re in class so you can cook it when you get home.

6. You motivate one another in every way possible.

Whether it’s supporting you through an all-nighter to study or telling you how pretty you are, your froomies are the real MVPs.

7. There is never a dull moment.

You can spend countless hours doing absolutely nothing but telling stories and googling obscene videos to watch together.

8. You cannot wait to go home to tell them about your day and hear about theirs.

Nothing excites me more than when I get home and both of my roommates are in the apartment so I can tell them about my crazy day and see how their's went.

9. When you realize you call the apartment “home” instead of “the apartment.”

The apartment is no longer a space in a complex that you share, it is now your home away from home.

10. You ask each other for help on basic life skills.

Today, I helped my roommate make her Tupperware stop smelling like meatballs, and start smelling like water. Yes, I said smell like water.

11. You just want to do life together.

It’s only been a few weeks, but I already catch myself making future plans for weekends to come with them – there’s nobody I’d rather do them with.

I have been blessed with brilliant young women as my roommates, and I am proud to call them my froomies. It’s going to be a great year – I can feel it already.

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
