I Miss Living With My Best Friend

No offense to my family, I love living with y'all too. It's just different.

I Miss Living With My Best Friend
Josie Murray

This school year, I started living with my best friend in the whole world. We were also living with a couple of random roommates, and it was really fun getting to know them. But then COVID-19 came around and flipped all of us on our heads, and changed our lives as we knew them.

I didn't live with my best friend in the dorms, but we had been planning to live together in college since we both realized we wanted to attend the same university. This was something countless people told me to be careful of, and in all of their stories it only went one of two ways: the friendship grew stronger and they are still friends, or they were so toxic living together that they are no longer friends. But I had no doubts. I had spent weeks at a time staying with her and her family, and she would stay with mine, so we both knew each other's living style. And I freaking miss living with her.

There are so many things that are different living at home right now, aside from the obvious personal change. What I miss the most are the little things I didn't realize I would miss. I miss hearing her walk into the apartment knowing she's home for the night. I miss our short talks in the kitchen at one in the morning getting a snack before bed. I miss her coming into my room, saying something ridiculous, and walking away. I miss her getting bored and asking to do my makeup and take pictures together.

But mostly, I just miss having her presence around me. Knowing she's there any time that I may need her is so comforting. She knows me better than anyone, and I can tell her anything. And while I love my family and talking to them, it's a different dynamic. Being home is nice, and I get to spend some quality time with my human family and my fur babies.

As sad as I know it makes my mom, I honestly cannot wait to go back to everyday life alongside my best friend.

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.
