Why My Roommate From Freshmen Year Will Always Be A Best Friend

Even though I know I drive you crazy at times.

Why My Roommate From Freshmen Year Will Always Be A Best Friend

I take you for granted.

It isn’t said enough how thankful I am to have found a roommate who over time became one of my best friends. You balance me out for the better. I’m the type of girl who tries to do 50 different things all at once, but you go with the flow. Your laid-back personality is a nice reality check for when I’m being a bit too much.

Some people can’t relate to this. And that’s okay. But to those of you who can, you know what I mean when I say my roomie from freshmen year is my go-to-gal. After all, we did live in a bedroom the size of a crayon box together.

Also, who else would have taken the time to memorize all my high school friends’ names just so she can understand all my stories? You saw my high school friends every day in pictures hanging above my bunk, so why not fill you in on what’s going on back home?

Thank you for always being honest with me.

Whether it is about the boy who I shouldn’t talk to, the outfit that I need to change out of because it makes me look like I’m homeless (thanks for not letting me wear that yellow vest in public), or the cold, hard truth that my attitude needs adjusting at times, you are never afraid to put me in my place.

You never judge my mistakes. I have made plenty of them over the past year and a half, and you are always one of the first ones there to give me down to earth advice that will better me as a person in the long run.

After all, I never judged you for hitting snooze twenty times every morning. It has been a pain setting my own alarm this year though.

I know I drive you crazy at times. But I also know that no matter where life takes us, we will always be close friends. You’re the type of friend I see as a bridesmaid in my wedding and the one I know will only be a phone call away.

We may have started off as total strangers who only texted each other on occasion about who was bringing the mini fridge, but I am so glad that I accidentally liked your Instagram post from over 100 weeks ago the spring of senior year.

It started a friendship that will last a lifetime.

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.

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.
