Thank You To My First-Year Roommate

Thank you for making my first-year incredible.

Thank You To My First-Year Roommate

To my most amazing roomie,

When I first got to UVA, I was so nervous about everything associated with college. Making new friends, going to classes, having to live with dining hall food for a year, etc. But, after the first day of getting to know you, I became a lot less anxious and a lot more excited because I knew that I would have an amazing friend on grounds. From that moment on, we were able to conquer first-year together.

Throughout our first year, we have shared so many incredible memories. We have been to concerts and parties together, have had lots of dining hall dinners, and have both started a journey with faith through Chi Alpha. We have talked endlessly about basically everything and have had a ton of late-night dance parties and movie nights in the dorm. We have survived all of the ups and downs of first-year and have supported each other through it all.

I hope that you know that you are such an incredible person. You are so kind, compassionate, smart, funny, strong, encouraging, and beautiful. I love all of the funny stories that you tell, how you can jump at the smallest thing in a movie, love jamming out to music, and are a beast at basically every sport. I love how passionate you can be, how much you care for your friends and family, and how you are always willing to try new things. You have already done wonderful things with your life, and I know that you are going to do even more in the future.

Thank you for everything that you have done for me in my first year of college. Thank you for always supporting me and making my days brighter. Thank you for being my first friend at college and for being my best friend throughout this year. We may not be roommates next year, but I know that we will still always hang out and go on new adventures together. I am so so grateful that I have had you as my roommate, and I am even more blessed to have you as one of my best friends.

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.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
