The 6 Stages Of Becoming Comfortable With Your Roommate

Do you walk around in a towel?

The 6 Stages Of Becoming Comfortable With Your Roommate

College is a crazy place. One of the wildest aspects is living with a complete and total stranger, and learning how to co-exist. It's been a little over a month since school started, and I can honestly say my roommate is one of my best friends, but that didn't happen overnight. Here are the stages every pair of roommates go through before they're 100% comfortable with each other .

Stage 1: Best Behavior.

I remember the first day me and my roommate met, I made sure not to do anything that would piss her off. I took the quickest shower of my life and didn't talk to her while she was getting changed, in case it made her uncomfortable.

Stage 2: Slowly Borrowing Each Other's Stuff.

"Hey so I totally forgot to buy makeup wipes at Target last week, do you mind if I borrow one? Don't worry you can have my entire makeup collection in exchange and i'll give you three dollars."

Stage 3: Gossiping About the Present.

This is when you start spilling the details on the cute guy you met last night or how much your professor sucks. Venting occurs during this stage, and this is when you actually start becoming friends and not just two people who live in the same room.

Stage 4: Gossiping About the Past.

The random girl who started about a rumor about your roommate in 8th grade, hate her. The guy who broke her heart sophomore year of high, boy bye. She knows all about your awkward stage in middle school, and you're totally fine with it. Late night conversations at 3 am is when this usually happens.

Stage 5: The Towel.

Modesty has gone completely out the window at this point.

Stage 6: Letting Your Freak Flag Fly.

Congratulations, you and your roommate are officially comfortable with each other. You let all the crazy show, and they still love you for it. You can be 100% completely yourself and you already know it's going to be a great year!

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
