Things I’ve Learned By Living With Guys

Things I’ve Learned By Living With Guys

I'm genuinely concerned about their life choices.

Men are... Interesting, to say the least. I’ve had boyfriends and lived in dorms and apartments next to boys, but actually living with them is a whole different situation. I recently saw this twitter thread from that broke down what it’s like to live with women. It’s, honestly, extremely accurate. After reading the thread, I decided to exploit my experiences living with four boys for content.

1. They never sleep.

Like, I’m an insomniac and they still have me beat. I can come home at 3 a.m. after the bars close, and they’ll be wide awake and asking if I want to start a new series on Netflix. Then they’ll be up, ready to do it all again the next day. Their stamina is mind-blowing.

2. I genuinely don't know if they can cook.

The first time I watched my roommate use the stove, our fire alarm went off for 30 minutes. He was making a grilled cheese, y’all. This baffles me... We have two fridges and a pantry, all stocked with food. Yet all I ever see them eat is delivery, or, on rare occasion, takeout.

3. Living with frat boys means that I don’t just live with the boys who pay rent here.

To loosely paraphrase what SZA once said, “My house is my house, their house, that’s their house too.” I once woke up to get some water and found four non-roomie boys slumped on each corner of the couch, Juuls in hand. They’re so sweet when they’re quiet.

4. They’re clean... Until they’re not.

Guys, somehow, own wayyy less stuff than I do. I can’t speak for all ladies, but I, personally, own a lot of things. Our house, while it may have one too many pong tables, doesn’t contain a lot of things. Just the basic utilities, plus a TV, speakers, and an Xbox. The common area usually stays surprisingly clean... Until someone decides to throw a party. Then, somehow, we now own all the things. And it’ll stay like that for days, or until I freak out and they clean it up so they don’t have to hear my voice anymore.

5. There is never a shortage of alcohol.

If I buy a 40 oz., they’ll buy a case. If I bring home a 30-rack, they’ll bring home a keg. The amount of alcohol these boys can consume in a weekend is concerning, to say the least.

6. Any situation is an excuse to party.

Exam tomorrow? Study party. Going home for the weekend? “Going away” party. Sunny and 75? Darty. The possibilities are endless with them

All in all, it’s kind of nice having a bunch of guys as roommates because they’re always down to watch TV at 3 a.m., play video games, order food, grab a drink, talk trash, and start a Nerf war.

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7



On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"

Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet

Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood

In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward

From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics

All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back

Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges

There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
