A Letter To My Freshman Roommate

A random flowing of thoughts about our freshman year of college.

A Letter To My Freshman Roommate

Dear Freshman Roommate,

Our time as roommates is coming to a close and I wanted to let you know just how much you mean to me. I remember walking in terrified on move-in day, with no idea as to whether or not you were going to be a stuck-up bitch or not, but feeling immediate relief as we bonded over my (overpriced) Harry Potter comforter. That started a whirlwind of friendship, from late night movies and Cook-Out. Even when we didn't spend much time together, coming back to the room at night and spending hours laying in bed in the dark, talking to each other and giggling about some random penguin post on facebook lit up my day.

You are the one person whom I can tell everything to and whom I can share my frustrations and life problems, with no judgmental comments or anything. Ranting over our favorite Netflix shows has become one of my favorite pastimes and screaming about new things you've read in your quest to finish Harry Potter is my favorite way to end the day. I cannot begin to express how much I love our nighttime gossip sessions and how therapeutic they are. You are such an optimistic person and I love that about you.

There's so much I want to thank you for and I know I won't think of it all, but I want to elaborate on some. Thank you for being there for me during one of my worst panic attacks and talking me through it. You have no idea how much that meant to me. Thank you for being there to unlock the door for me SO MANY TIMES and saving me a lot of money. Thank you for listening to me when I wanted to rant about my life frustrations and helping me feel better. I will always be there for you to talk about anything and everything, from food, to sex and guys. (BTW, no guy will ever be good enough for you.)

I know that I can be myself around you.You are my best friend and I love you so so much. I will always be there for you and even though we may not be living together, I am constantly going to be crashing at your place and I know you will always be at mine as well. You make me question moving in with my boyfriend, because I know that even though I love him, he will never be you.

I can't begin to express how much you mean to me and honestly, I'm jealous of your future roommate, because even though I love her too, I'm scared she might replace me. (even though no one can ;)) I also know it's ridiculous to be so sad over us moving out when we are going to be living less than a mile away from each other.

I love you so much, You are the Rachel to my Monica and you are the sister I never had. I will always love you. I see you being the maid-of-honor at my wedding someday and I am excited to see how our friendship grows.

See you later, Roomie :)

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.
