To My Roomate And Bestfriend, Thank You For A Year Filled WIth Countless Memories

Bad grade? Dance party! Guy got you down? Dance Party! Bored? Dance party!

Angelina Pranger

To my roommate,

Thank you for always being there. It seems like no matter the situation or time of day, I can always count on you. It is crazy to think how close we have gotten in just a year of living together, and in all honesty, I don’t know what I would do without you.

Although the list is far greater than 10, here are a few of the reasons why I am so happy to have you in my life:

1. LONG rants

Classes and work can become overwhelming, and you’re always the first person I go to for both. Whether it be problems with other friends or just needing to get out something that has been bothering me, you always provide a listening ear.

2. Endless dance parties

Bad grade? Dance party! Guy got you down? Dance Party! Bored? Dance party!

3. Coffee- When it’s MOST needed

It seems like whenever I’m sad you know what to do to make me feel better: coffee. You know how I take it, and that I like it over ice. You also bring it to me when I don’t even ask for it, and I appreciate that.

4. Ultimate gossip pal

Sometimes, there is just something too good to keep to yourself, so I tell you about it and you always give me a reaction of utter shock. Just because I was told not to share the information with anyone, doesn’t mean you right? I mean we live together, I’m telling you.

5.We don’t like the same people

Yes, we try and be nice to everyone, but there are those people that have done us SO wrong. If I don’t like her, you don’t like her, and honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

6. Late night laugh attacks

For some reason, everything is funnier at 12:30 a.m. after a long day. It seems like we laugh over EVERYTHING and it is one of those moments that I never want to end.

7. You ALWAYS share your food

Okay, I know I said I wasn’t hungry, but you knew I would be so you got extra for us to share. You just know me so well.

8. We always want the same food

Dinner is never a hard choice because we always want to eat the same thing. Feeling a burger? Same. Ice cream instead of an actual meal? Same. It’s almost like we’re the same person.

9.You play the best jams

Getting ready for a night out means major pump up music and you’ve perfected it. You ALWAYS know the songs I’m feeling without me ever having to ask. You also know I’m most likely going to sing even though I’m tone-deaf, and you don’t judge me for it.

10.You’re my best friend

Although all the things above are something that a roommate could do, you go above and beyond in making me feel loved every day. I never feel like there isn’t something I couldn’t or wouldn’t want to tell you. You’re my go-to, and I love you.


Your Best Friend

Quarantine Checkup Week 10: It's Officially Summer, Even In Quarantine

An Odyssey panel discussion about all things quarantine.

Thanks to coronavirus (COVID-19), most of the United States has gone into its own version of quarantine. While no one loves this new way of life we're adjusting to, it's the necessity that will eventually help us fling open our front doors and frolic freely once again!

Premature thinking? Maybe. But while we're in the midst of this quarantine time, we're chatting about the most terrifying, the funniest, and the weirdest thing that quarantine has forced us into recently.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Acne has plagued my life since my early teens. I thought I'd have clear skin by the time I reached college, but I was wrong. In high school, I became more self-conscious of my skin. It seemed that all the girls had faces like porcelain dolls (or they were really good at makeup). This hurt when relatives mentioned the rough state of my skin. I know they didn't mean harm, but I still stand by "if it can't be fixed in a couple of seconds, don't point it out."

To cover up my insecurities, I started wearing concealer in public. Since college, the amount of breakouts I've had has decreased, and I've even seen a reduction in scarring. I'm slowly building up confidence, and I've managed to go out barefaced during the quarantine (thanks to making face masks the new norm!).
