An Open Letter to My College Roommates

Because I will always cherish those pillow forts and Friday night pancakes with my favorite people

An Open Letter to My College Roommates
Leslie Stratton

Dear College Roommates,

You know you miss me! And I miss you too. Though I often struggle with responding to messages, phone calls, or letters, know I think and talk about you all the time. My friends now all make fun of me for talking about you so much. I am never sorry and I promise I will always continue to do it.

Remember those nights on the weekends where we would all stay in and hang out together while everyone else went out? Me too. Those were some of my best memories from college. I remember when we made that fort, putting together all of the sheets in our townhouse. Then, we made pancakes and ate those bad boys in the fort. Talk about the dream team. We took pictures. It was high quality.

Though I have not seen you all for quite some time now, I cherish the times we talk more than I can say. No one understands me like you do. You have seen me through the lack of sleep due to my exams and papers, and frustrations due to sports. You have seen me at the highest highs and the lowest lows. And I appreciate those small acts of encouragement from the cookies you baked to the smiles in the morning. They mean a lot. I also am thankful for the dumb decisions we made. Oh gosh, they were dumb. But you better believe they were funny.

When we lived together, I appreciated it but I think I appreciate it even more now. It made me who I am today. I have heard you become most like the people you hang out with the most. And I am beyond thankful to have become more and more like you.

Stay Classy Townhouse 301,

Your Roommate

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
