When Your BFF Is Your Roommate, As Told By How I Met Your Mother

When Your BFF Is Your Roommate, As Told By How I Met Your Mother

Although it may seem like you guys spend way too much time with each other, it can really only bring you closer.

Living with a roommate may seem like a daunting task, but when your roommate is your friend life is like a never ending slumber party. There are undoubtedly some highs and some lows, but ultimately it is an amazing experience. You learn simple things about each other, such as exactly how they take their coffee or what foot they put their sock on first. Although it may seem like you guys spend way too much time with each other, it can really only bring you closer.

1. Well, since you're living together you will most likely develop some similar mannerisms

Whether it be some interesting phrases, or odd habits, since you two are roommates AND friends you probably spend at least 24 hours a day with them, therefore only making sense that you'll morph into the same person.

2. Waking up after a long night to see your roommate across from you

Whether it be a long night studying or a late night out partying, nothing is more relieving than waking up to see your roommate also struggling from the lack of sleep the two of you experienced. You may be exhausted, but hey at least you're in this together.

3. There will never be a dull moment... ever

Even the simplest of tasks become an experience. From assembly line folding your laundry to excessively vacuuming your carpet, you have a built-in buddy to make the time go by faster!

4. You can share clothes and shoes and food and pretty much anything else

The closest store is only a closet away! Living together is a major task to accomplish, so undoubtedly you'll be close enough to share your roomie's clothes. Whether it be their extra set of rain boots or that cute shirt they wore to class, typically, what's theirs is also yours (as long as you ask).

5. You'll never have to go it alone whether it's a tough time...

There will be undoubtedly many trials and tribulations throughout your life, and while your family may not be there to comfort you, your roommate will be there to hold you tight. Whether it's something you just need to get off your chest or some late night bonding your friend will be there to comfort you.

6. ...or an amazing time.

You'll always have someone to share your successes with. Whether that are a massive deal, like landing your dream internship, or seemingly minute, like not touching the shower wall. You guys will have endless moments where you laugh, at some small thing, until your stomach hurts.

7. It is like having your own personal cheerleader.

Whether you're studying for a big exam or prepping for a date, you're roommate, although they can't take your test for you or sit in in your date, they will be cheering you on before, and either congratulating or comforting you after.

8. The jam sessions are ENDLESS.

Even if you disagree on certain genres, there will always be those classics that you can't help but jam out to not matter the time of day.

9. No matter how long you've been separated or what your day has been like you always will have each other.

Yes you guys may get into little arguments, it happens, but at the end of the day you'll always have each other to come back to.

Dear Mom, I Hope You Know

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.
