Thank You To My Roommate

Blessed be the good roomies.

Thank You To My Roommate
Alivia Sandberg

College is hard and we have all heard the stories about the horrible roommates of the world, but how often do we hear about the good ones. I was lucky enough to win the roommate lottery and found a roommate, and a friend in a girl that I lived with on a whim. Now as our second year hits us like a ton of bricks, we are looking for houses, like real-life adults or something. A big thank you goes to my roommate, who is so incredibly tolerable that I'm signing on for two more years with her.

Dear Roomie,

Thank you for taking a gamble on a girl you met playing club volleyball. You only knew me for the mess I was after a day on the court, now you know the mess I am after a day in class and you still put up with me. We have come so far from the scared freshman that cried together our first two nights in the dorm.

Thank you for being patient with me, even when you have to remind me three times that it's my turn to clean the bathroom. You are nice to me during breakdowns, and always willing to get ice cream or watch Grey's Anatomy. You let me leave the light on when I want to stay up reading, and don't tease me when I play my show tunes while I shower. You study so hard and I have gotten to watch your hard work pay off which is honestly so much fun for me.

Thank you for weekly movie nights, and family dinners when we are missing our own. People underestimate how close you can get to someone over the course of the year but sharing a tiny space with you has made me closer with you than almost anyone. You have become such a constant in my life, which no one expects of a teammate they usually see once a week but I could not thank you enough for the long nights of laughing and stressing about tests, then laughing some more.

Thank you for being the best roomie I could ask for.


Your former, current and future roommate

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

It is all worth it in the end.

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

You have probably been asked before if you were a Type-A or Type-B personality. People who are considered to be "Type A" tend to be impatient, competitive and ambitious. They know exactly what they want to do and when they want to do it. Then there are people who are considered "Type B." People with Type-B personality are just all around more relaxed. There isn't much that is going to stress them out.
