I'm So Glad Facebook Brought Me And My Roommate Together

A million thank yous that have been due for a while now.

I'm So Glad Facebook Brought Me And My Roommate Together
author's own

Before getting to college, I was worried about a lot of things. Would I make friends? How long would that take? Would I be able to avoid getting overwhelmed and freaked out with all the pressures and requirements of my major? Would my dorm be a comfortable space to live and be myself, like I was used to at home? Then, I got here and moved in, and you helped all those questions be answered in the best way.

It's crazy to me how just messaging over Facebook (back when I thought I might choose a roommate randomly) brought such a great pair together. How similar we are started to show once we started talking about our living styles, but escalated to a new level once we met in person and began spending so much time together on a daily basis. It's even a little bit weird sometimes, but I love it and have so much to be grateful for.

Thank you for coexisting so well with me on so much more than just a basic level. For all the nights I've gotten back from the practice rooms after you're already half-asleep and in bed to the times I've impulsively given in to my need to call my sister quickly and tell her about something great that just happened, you have been so accepting of my sometimes-wacky lifestyle and I am so grateful for that.

On top of that, there are all the little things that I love so much. I've said before how much I like our weird homework sessions where we sit together in silence and work, but I also love how we're able to balance being messy with being inhumanly clean, and I especially love our shared value of sleep. The fact that you have such a healthy sleep schedule makes my own look terrible and it is the best kind of peer pressure.

But it's so much more than just getting along as roommates. Over these four short months, we have become so close. I seriously love you so much. Our long conversations about anything mean so much to me. I was prepared to come into college and have issues with bottling up my feelings because I would have no one on campus to verbalize them to, but we talk about so many things that our dorm has become even more of a space I can be myself in- and I know (and love) that you feel similarly. I've also said this a million times recently, but your honesty when I'm talking stuff out and tell you something dumb that has been going through my mind is exactly what I need when I'm freaking out and can't quite get out of my brain.

Along the same lines of sharing feelings, it makes me incredibly happy to be one of the people who gets to share in your joy. You are such a light and when I'm having a bad day, I know I can just come home to you and talk about literally anything, and it'll improve my mood infinitely. (That goes for our Disney and Christmas sing-alongs, too, despite the fact that you almost always know way more of the words than me.) Your positive energy is such a blessing.

So, thank you so much for everything. Never would I have thought back in August that I would have felt so sad coming back after my last exam and seeing all your stuff gone from the room. I'm beyond grateful for the friendship we have built this semester, and I can't wait to share the rest of freshman year with you!

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
