The Suite Life Of Shay

Love you losers so much

The Suite Life Of Shay
Samantha Kuchinski

Never have I lived with a female other than my mom until I started college. Sure, I had friends in high school and we would sometimes have sleepovers spanning a few days, but never have I spent almost every waking moment with girls my age. I remember being excited for college and thinking living with a girl would be all sharing clothes, braiding hair, and talking about boys; I wasn't wrong, but I wasn't right.

1. Clothing is optional

With the summer we've been having so far and without the luxury of AC in our room, walking around in a sports bra and your shorts from 6th grade is a-okay. Walking into the room and finding your roommate passed out for a nap in their bed too lazy to change out of their towel after a shower is completely normal, too.

2. No question is off limits

From asking if gluten is in about every other food to asking if I'm being a psychopath in a situation, nothing is too stupid to ask. (And trust me, we don't hold back.)

3. Weekend recaps on Sunday mornings are a must

Waking up surrounded with empty Domino's boxes, 17 outfit options and owning the "last night's makeup" look can be a little discombobulating sometimes. So, Sunday mornings always entail cuddling up together and piecing together a series of unfortunate events.

4. Calling each other out on our BS is okay

Passive aggressiveness is a no-no. Lying is a no-no. Taking showers longer than 10 minutes when the whole suite has 9:30's is a no-no and we certainly let each other know it.

5. You become telepathic

Just sitting as I was writing this article, every time I would look up at Adele with her back facing me, she would tell me to stop staring at her. We finish each other's sentences and we have a 6th sense about knowing when you shouldn't go back to the room.

6. If one of the roommates is being overly nice, something is up

I live with 3 of the MOST sarcastic SOBs I have ever met in my life. We are constantly screaming at each other or whacking the crap out of each other with pillows. If one of us is being really nice to the others, an intervention is much needed.

7. The bathroom becomes the common room

When your two rooms are connected by a bathroom probably nicer than your actual room, it becomes the hangout place of choice. Having chats while someone is in the shower and someone is putting on their makeup is the norm.

8. If you don't want your food eaten, hide it

Even though the dining hall is a staggering 30 steps away, lazy college kid syndrome takes over frequently and any food in sight will be eaten.

9. My wardrobe doubles at school

Living with not one, not two, but three girls is every clothes fanatic's dream. Never do I not have anything to wear and it's not that odd to find myself not wearing any of my own clothes.

10. Even though to the average bystander we look like we hate each other, I love you guys to death

People walking onto campus from the parking lot probably hear us screaming lovely names at each other or hear screams of sheer terror after one of us burns the other. Without a doubt, if I saw us, I would think we all hate each other. I mean, we only tell each other that approximately 4,869 times a day. We're just so close that, "I hate you" has become, "I love you" and, "I love you" has becoming something so much more than that.

That being said, I hate you losers -- so, so much.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
