Pros and Cons of Having Female Roommates

The good, the bad.

Pros and Cons of Having Female Roommates
DLT Entertainment

I have spent the past two years living with female roommates, one of whom is my twin sister. There have been many interesting moments in our apartment, both good and bad. I have learned that the are many pros and cons concerning living with roommates of the opposite sex like always having a bounty of fresh baked goods (girls love to bake when they're going through boy problems, FYI). Here, a list of all the pros and cons that come with living with girls:

Pro: Food

There is almost always a fresh baked good in our apartment. My roommates love to cook and I love to eat, so it's very much a win-win.

Con: Lack of Groceries

My roommates go grocery shopping on the regular, but sometimes strictly for the food they plan to make from scratch. I will never turn down a homemade meal, but I also enjoy my typical college kid food. Would it kill you girls to buy some boxed mac n' cheese once in a while?

Pro: Cleanliness

Even when our apartment isn't messy my roommates will clean. I don't know if it's a hobby or a nervous habit, but I like it.

Con: Cleanliness

BUT I sometimes I feel like I committed a crime if I don't make my bed.

Pro: Freedom

My roommates usually go to their boyfriends' house to hang out, so I can often be found sitting on our couch with Netflix on my laptop and sports on the TV.

Con: I'm Outnumbered

On days when they're both at home, they love to watch certain TV shows and movies together, meaning I'm banished to my room. Sorry, but I'll pass on watching Sex and the City on repeat.

Pro: Boyfriends

There's a sense of relief knowing that there won't be any random guys in our apartment since they both have boyfriends.

Con: Boyfriends

My relationship with my roommates' boyfriends vary. Sometimes I'm fine when one or both of them are over, and sometimes I'm ready to knock them out. They have nothing to worry about, but I'm always watching.

Pro: I'm Ready for Life

Many years from now, I might be living with a special lady. My roommates have shown me what it is like to live with a woman and I'm thankful to have the training I will no doubt need.

Con: I'm Screwed When I Move Out

I carry my weight in our apartment, but it is nice to have people help me out. Eventually I will be on my own and I'm not quite ready for that. How do they make everything smell SO nice?

*Both of my roommates are probably going to grad school in the Dallas area, meanwhile I'll be in a different town broadcasting minor league baseball games, so this is our final year together. As much as living with female roommates constantly drives me nuts, I've loved every minute of it because it's nonstop entertainment.*

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
