7 Things That Happen When You Find The Flat-Out Perfect College Flatmates
Macy Scott

Everyone knows that living in an off-campus apartment is completely different from living in a freshman dorm. You don't have to worry about a disgusting community bathroom, you're not cramped in a shoebox with two beds practically touching each other, and you don't have to worry about a Community Leader or RA watching your every move. However, living in a big-girl apartment has its own stressors, like paying for rent each month, managing electricity usage, and the farther trek to campus every day.

But when your roommates are actually the most perfect people in the world, it makes paying the expensive rent 100% worth it. I'm thankful that my #Froomies Jaelyn and Morgan have been such a blessing during my junior year of college, and I can't wait for the many adventures we will share until graduation.

Here are seven signs you've found the best possible roommates:

1. You have an apartment mascot

You know your apartment is official when you have a mascot to encourage you every day. At our apartment, Squirtle sits in our kitchen to remind us that we are worthy. If you don't have a mascot like Squirtle, you're wrong.

2. Your roomies are your go-to game day gals

You know you've found the best living arrangement when your roommates share your love for football! Getting dressed up, blasting music from the speakers, and taking cute pictures is a Saturday tradition in our apartment.

3. Your apartment has an #official name

The Hut

"The Hut" is where we call home. Giving your apartment or house a name makes it feel even homier! You know you have the best squad when you never refer to your living space as "the apartment," but by its official name!

4. You celebrate birthdays to the extreme

Is it really your birthday if your roommates don't decorate the entire apartment for you to make you feel special?? At our apartment, we get streamers, balloons, lots of confetti, and music to celebrate the big day!

5. Your roommate is your Bid Day success story

You know you've found the sweetest friend when you're still besties with the first person you met on Bid Day in your sorority! I 100% recommend living with someone you've been friends with for two full years!

6. You go on spontaneous adventures together

Day at Magnolia

My roommates and I love spontaneity! From going to food trucks late at night to last minute trips to Magnolia, these girls are always down to have fun! A sign that you've found the best roomies is when you literally cannot stop laughing when you're together!

7. You can't imagine not living with them!!

I've only lived in The Hut for three months, but I can't imagine living anywhere else! Jaelyn and Morgan have been such blessings in my life, and I can't wait for more adventures with them. If you're looking for the perfect college roommates...

... sorry, they're taken!!! :-) #LongLiveTheHut

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
