13 Signs You Might Be TOO Close With Your Roommate

After living with your roommates for a few months, boundaries are pretty much non-existent in your household.

1. You crawl into bed with them.

Even under the covers. After Saturday afternoon festivities, you crawl into your roommate's bed once you get home. Obviously, you share your Will's and wrap yourself in her comforter while watching your Snapchat stories together. Best part? Neither of you think it's weird.

2. You're their second mother.

You embody a maternal instinct for your roommate. You know all of the things to make them feel better. And you know something is up when she isn't acting like herself. Allergies? Second shelf to the right dude, I got you.

3. You are greeted enthusiastically...

...every single time you come home, even though you were only in Calc for an hour and twenty minutes. Separation anxiety.

4. Their significant other loves you just as much as them.

There is no such thing as third-wheeling. You know too many details about their relationship. Sushi Nara tonight? Table for three.

5. What is mine is yours.

You don't ask to borrow their bandeau and sweater, you just take it. But it's OK, because you basically have one giant closet. She'll let you borrow anything, even the special scarf her grandma made her.

6. When you arrive home, a little looser than normal.

They know the routine, pretzels, water, pillow for the bathroom floor. Take her phone, Tom does not need to know how much she loves him.

7. No judgment on appearance.

You come downstairs with your hair standing straight up and no pants on, every morning. She encourages you to wear that way-too-short-of-a dress out. In fact, she'll even be caught dead in Starbucks with you in last night's clothes.

8. You're blunt with each other.

There's no passive aggressive roommate tension. If she does something that bothers you, you tell her straight up. Storming in and yelling at her to clean her mac 'n' cheese bowl in the sink is the usual, but normal routine. You tell it like it is.

9. You finish each other's drinks, food, sentences.

The leftover Chinese in the fridge, she brought it home for you. You share drinks at the bar, no need for two straws, you are past that point.

10. Your inside jokes have gone so far...

...that people have completely stopped following you on twitter. No one gets your Instagram caption, and people can't hold a conversation with the two of you together.

11. You know way too much about your personal problems.

No need for explanation.

12. You text them when you're in the same room.

If they are upstairs studying while you're cooking dinner, communication hasn't stopped. A constant conversation is going, even when you're one room apart.

13. You didn't know being TOO close was a thing.

Between walking around in your underwear and picking out which flavor Starbursts she doesn't like, it never crossed your mind that maybe you have no boundaries.

But being too close is okay with you two.

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
