I am going to miss you.

A Letter To My Roommate As We Move Out

As the days turn into months and the months turn into semesters, our time as roommates living together becomes shorter and shorter. While I will miss you over the summer, I cannot help but thank you for all the memories and the better person that you have made me over the year.

1. Thank you for all the laughs.

From all the times that we yelled at random people through our windows to the various noise complaints, you have made college so much more bearable. There is no one else I would rather laugh, cry or cry-laugh with through college.

2. Thank you for putting up with my mess.

Clothes and makeup scattered everywhere to the point of overtaking the room and violating the fire code. Every day I come home and say that I will clean when I get back, which almost never happens. You have to step around the random shoes, books and blankets that block the path to your bed every night. No one else would be as tolerant of my messy habits as you are.

3. Thank you for sharing your clothes.

When I am running late to class and I have "no clothes" to wear, I can always count on your closet to have just the right shirt. Even though I am a bit bitter that you can pull off my striped shirt better than I can, I am going to miss having two closets to choose from.

4. Thank you for listening to all my problems.

Whether it's school or relationship problems, you are always the one who will listen to me at 2:00 in the morning. You are such a positive person that I know I can count on to reassure me that everything is going to be OK. Thank you for giving me my own therapy session when I need it.

5. Thank you for sharing your food with me.

When we met each other at the beginning of the year, it was always an awkward encounter to even ask for a spoon, but now we do not even have to ask each other because we both know that being hangry is a real thing.

6. Thank you for putting up with all my quirky habits.

From my abnormal sleep habits to my obnoxious mumbling and random dance sessions, you have to put up with a lot. Thank you for joining me when I try to rap Fetty Wap and fail miserably. Although my quirky habits can get annoying, I know you will not judge me.

7. Thank you for being the greatest roommate that I could ever ask for.

Looking back to the beginning of the year, I could not have guessed how close we would become. College is a place where you meet so many amazing people, and I am so blessed to have found one of those people in you. I do not know what college would have been like without you and I do not want to think about it. Thank you for making this year one of the best years yet.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
