My sophomore year truly would not have been the same without the most supportive and loving roommates, Lauren Mancini and Sari Kuba. Living with these amazing girls makes leaving this summer very difficult. I've come to appreciate and respect both of them very much throughout this entire year. Thankfully, it's not a goodbye, but a see you later because you bet we are living together next year and the following year when we are seniors!

The more I think about my sophomore year, the more I think about why it was so spectacular. Both Lauren and Sari are one of the stronger reasons why I made it through my sophomore year at the University of Delaware. Behind my family, they are my biggest fans. These are two of my closest friends whom I will treasure and keep close to my heart for the rest of my life. Here are five reasons why you should live with your best friends.

1. You see them every day, so you want to get a long with them.

When you're seeing the same people every day, you want to make sure you have a good relationship with whoever it may concern, especially your roommates. Having a superb relationship with your roommates are among one of the most important things. You don't want to go home with a burden of having to see someone you don't like or get along with. Choose wisely!

2. You do everything with them.

Grocery shopping, dinners, movie nights, breakfasts, homework, and countless other things we enjoy doing together. Name it, and we definitely do it. I always enjoy myself when I'm around them, even if it is just chilling on the green or in our apartment!

3. You won't get sick of them.

If they are your closest friends, you most likely will not get sick of them. Although you live with them, you are also doing your own thing during the day and/or at night. Your roommates will learn to know you inside and out, and will eventually come to understand when you need time to yourself. All three of us are in different sororities which makes the experience of living with both of them simply amazing. I could not have asked for better roommates and best friends than them.

4. You're never lonely.

At least one of them will be in the apartment at some point of the day. So, never will I be bored at our apartment!

5. ... and finally, they're your biggest support system.

I truly mean it when I say my roommates are my biggest support system. It's safe to say that Lauren and Sari are always there for me. Whether it's endless cuddles or a shoulder to cry on, I know I can always count on them for anything.

Get yourself a Sari and Lauren! Without a doubt, my sophomore year would not be the same without them. Having these unbelievable roommates in my life makes college ten times better. Thus, really think about who you want to live with and spend every day with. Best friends last a life time, so what better way to spend it than with your roommates.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
