I Already Love Living With My Gal Pals At College

Dorm life is always better with friends.

The years that people spend in college have a large effect on their lives as a whole.

As they learn and study in their classes, they begin to think differently about their own opinions in a deeper way. One detail that affects a person's college life is their living space, specifically the other people who live with them. For my second year at Longwood University, I am living with some of my best friends in a dorm, and I am incredibly happy to say so!

Making friendships is one of the main things that people encourage young people to do in school. Over the past year, I have found some of my best friends in my roommate and two other girls we met as time went by. One advantage of the four of us living together is that we know each other's moods. We have seen each other grumpy and/or sleepy after studying a huge pile of homework and laughing to the point of tears over memes that either make no sense or relate to all of us at once.

Another amazing thing is that we are comfortable with everyone in our suite. We live in a triple suite this year which surprised and almost concerned us at first, but when we finally met with our other two suitemates, we found life in a triple to be better than expected. All of us have the freedom to be comfortable around one another, and I think having that frame of mind in a study space that should be comfortable to start with is the best a person can ask for.

My favorite part of living with my friends this year is how the physical amount of distance helps us stay updated with each other's lives. If one of us has exciting news, we only have to go next door to celebrate rather than go up one floor or meet up at another dorm entirely.

At the end of the day, I could not be happier about my living situation this year.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
