To The Roomie Who Has Turned Into A Lifelong Friend

To The Roomie Who Has Turned Into A Lifelong Friend

Here's to you


Not everyone can say their roommate is their best friend, so I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

Thank you for, quite literally, always being there.

From the minute we wake up to the minute we go to bed, I'm pretty sure we're always in contact. If we're not wandering around campus with each other, eating together, talking about the Real Housewives, or sitting in our living room ranting about someone or something, I'd bet my life we're texting or Snapchatting or tagging each other in memes on Facebook.

Thank you for being my personal therapist.

Whether I'm stressed about school, boys, what to wear, or even what to get for dinner, I know I can always turn to you (and I always do) for 10/10 advice at any time of the day. It may not be what I want to hear, but it's always what I need to hear.

Thank you for knowing me inside and out.

I know I get easily annoyed, but so do you, and that's why we're friends. You always know what I'm thinking and you always know how to snap me out of my bad mood, even though my favorite times are when we sit in our apartment and dwell in our bad moods together.

We laugh in situations we probably shouldn't and we say what's on our minds when we probably shouldn't, but we never regret it because at least we know we have each other.

I don't know how I'm going to survive an entire semester when you leave me to go abroad, but somehow I know we'll keep each other updated on all the crazy things going on in our lives and I'll count down the days until you come back to school and we're roommates once again.

I saw a picture on VSCO yesterday and it said, "college is about finding your bridesmaids, not your groom."

I'm glad I found you.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).
