8 Reasons You Should Never Live With Your Best Friend

You already know what make each other tick so you truly can be the perfect roommates from the start.

Going off to college is hard; this is when most people live on their own for the first time. Whether you live in a dorm, in an apartment, or rent a house it's nice to have a familiar face. Living with someone you are close with can be difficult at times but for the most part you will create some of your favorite memories from college. When you live with your best friend there is never a dull moment and your friendship will continue to grow (just make sure you still have your own rooms, everyone needs space). Here are a few reasons why living with your best friend really is the best:

1. They will make you get out of bed. 

Everyone has those days when you just want to lay in bed all day and that's fine. When you live with your best friend they will make sure those days aren't everyday and you actually get out of the house!

2. You always have someone to have dinner with.

Whether you go out to eat or cook dinner together, it is an important time of the day when you can reflect. It's nice not to eat alone or staring at the TV every night.

3. You can be your complete self all the time.

The amount of times my best friend has seen me without pants is uncanny. We would have dance parties, and just be silly. No one was there to judge us, we could be ourselves.

4. You can immediately tell her about your date.

Or she'll know by how long it took if it went well or not. Plus it is always nice to have someone know where you are... just in case.

5. Sometimes its just nice to be in each other company.

You will be together all of the time so believe it or not you will probably run out of stuff to talk about. Sometimes its nice just to sit with each other and do nothing.

6. You don't have to go anywhere to see them.

Well you might have to walk out of your bedroom, but that's about it! No driving, or walking they're right there whenever you need them!

7. Their closet is in your house.

That means its up for grabs right? For some reason someone else's clothes are always so much cuter and more exciting than your own.

8. They already know your whole life.

You don't have to go through an awkward stage with a random roommate where you have to get to know each other. Plus you already know what make each other tick so you truly can be the perfect roommates from the start.

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.
