6 One-Liners I Tell My Roommate  On The Reg
Rachel Hardin

My roommate is hands down one of the best listeners because she sits there and takes in everything that I say no matter what. Sometimes it's positive and sometimes its pre-breakdown sad talk. But no matter what she, the hero that she is, saves the day with her super awesome listening skills. It also helps that she tells me when I happen to be overreacting, but 2% of the time I'm not.

"Do you want to drop out and go to Disneyland?" 

This is my go-to statement after a hard day. When you finally climb into bed after doing all your homework, and think of the better times, in the best place on the planet. The thoughts of the foods, smells, rides, and all around carefree-ness is always enticing.

"Do you know what I hate?"

If you are someone who knows me, you know that I don't like a lot of things... mostly homework, long classes, and testing. I understand and value each of those things respectively, but all in all, they make the day feel like years. Sometimes "Do you know what I hate?" is followed by a comment someone made that day, a teacher who broke their own rules, or something I deemed unfair.

"Moana, make way, make way" 

For some reason, Moana, my favorite Disney movie, is always stuck in my head.

Any fan of musicals, Disney and sometimes Pixar (thanks to the Toy Story movies) can relate with the random soundtracks coming out of your mouth at the weirdest times. For some reason it is only those lyrics that get stuck in my head, each, I mean every night before bed.

"I miss my mom."

My mom is my best friend, my better half, and also is very far away from me when I'm at school. When I don't get the chance to talk to her before I go to bed, I miss her, and thus, the "I miss my mom" talk.

My roommate gets this talk at least four times a week. Bless her soul she is a trooper. This talk ranges from a quick story, to on a bad night a possible cry session. It depends.

"Whose job was it to do _____?"

There is nothing more frustrating to me than when people don't follow through, and what is even worse is when they only follow through about halfway. I am always the first to call something out, never directly to the person, but in general. Thankfully my roommate provides me with a great venting system where I can tell her everything and then forget about it after a little bit.

"Why?!" 

My favorite question, the best question, and the answer to just about anything. Whether it is a whhhhyyyyy do I have to wake up so early, or a why is this so hard, she is always there and ready with the #1 answer.... because.

As a college student, the best thing that you can have is an awesome roommate who listens to you, but you have to make sure to listen to them when they need a good old fashion venting session. Roommates are known to be good secret keepers because they spend every day with you about 4 feet away at all times.

Tell your roommate that you love them and are thankful for all they do.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

If 'Hockey Is For Everyone,' Why Is Matt Dumba So Alone In Fighting For Racial Equality In The NHL?

If the NHL is using #WeSkateForEquality, why is Dumba alone in the fight for equality?

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, the National Hockey League resumed play for the first time since March 12, 2020. The season was paused due to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and a concern for the players contacting the virus and spreading it through the League. Fans and players sat and waited for the hockey season to resume, which took more than 140 days.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

What Your Favorite Rom-Com Says About You And Your Dream Guy

These movies are always there for us when we need them.

YouTube

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.
