8 Ways To Bond With Your College Roommates That Will Make You Forever Friends

Living with random strangers can be tough and scary when it comes down to it. You all of a sudden have to live with someone you've never met and are expected to get along.

Even if you know your roommates, it can be a tough time at the start of the year. You will all be under new pressures so here are some ways that you all can bond and learn more about each other.

Have a Painting Party

Throw on a Bob Ross tutorial or just make up your own ideas. When you're done, throw them up on the wall so you all can display your work.

Make a Craft

Make friendship bracelets or anything that sounds fun but crafting is always a good time.

Have a Movie Night

Whether it is a bunch of rom-coms, sappy movies, or a series of movies (I recommend "Twilight"), it will be fun to know what they like to watch and even making fun of the plots. Crying together is also a good bonding moment.

Go on an Adventure

As freshman,my roommates and I went to go to a sunflower patch and got lost on the way there. We had a photo shoot and it is one of my finest memories from freshman year. We also took adventures to go get food and that was always a fun time wondering around at night going to go get cookies.

Grab Coffee

Coffee dates are always a good way to get to know each other because you actually get a chance to talk and get to know each other on a more personal level.

Decorate Together

Set aside some time to decorate your new room together. It will be a fun time to learn about each others style.

Have a Pizza Party

Buy a few pizzas and breadsticks and let the magic happen. Pizza always brings people together.

Go Shopping Together

I don't just mean to the mall. Going to the store together will save gas and will also give you all some quality time together. It sounds funny but it works.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
