It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Luckily, I won the lottery of roommates.

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate
NBC Bay Area

My first year of college is quickly coming to an end. Finals season is upon us, and we all are scrambling to get our GPA’s as high as we can.

Past all the craziness, my first year of college has been a great one.

This past year, I made a ton of great friends, met a lot of new people, and even got myself a boyfriend (Hi Peter, LOL).

One of the first people that I got to know this year however, was my roommate, Carmen.

Being randomly assigned to a roommate made me nervous at the beginning of the year. I had no idea what to expect. I’ve heard a lot of roommate horror stories, and I prayed that something like that wouldn’t happen to me.

Luckily, I won the lottery of roommates.

Carmen and I have never had any disagreements, and we have been really cool with each other since day one.

Her and I communicate when we need something to for the dorm, or ask each other when we go out to eat if the other want anything. This may just be pure kindness, but it means more to me than she probably knows.

I know that she will be reading this article, and I want her to know that I really appreciate her. Next year, we won’t be living with each other, as she will be living off campus, while I will be living on campus still.

I want her to know that the door to our friendship is still open even after we move out. She is such a great, fun person, and I personally believe she deserves the world.

Thank you Carmen for being the best roomie I could ask for. I really do appreciate you!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11784

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
