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
Cassie Nichols

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.

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
