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.

Warcraft 3: Reforged - A legend returns

One of the top 100 games of the century makes a comeback in an epic way.


17 years ago, the legion invaded the realm of Azeroth, forcing the different races of Humans, Orcs, Night elves, and Undead to make the most unlikely of alliances. There were those who fought for the light while the others wished to banish it. Night and day, the furnaces of Lordaeron burnt bright as the loyal dwarves of Khaz Modan hammer away the swords and shields that would aid the fight ahead.

17 years ago, the young orc warchief Thrall foresaw the fate of his people as meteors of green flames crash upon his lands. He saw the upcoming demise of his clanand ordered a mass evacuation towards a new continent where they shall be safe for generations to come. 17 years ago, the night elves felt a corruption within the Tree of Life, causing them to split into opposing factions: one fought in the name of the Goddess, while the other fought in the name of personal hatred. 17 years ago, a legion of undead came upon the shores of Lordaeron, plaguing the land and defiling the life force of the realm. That was the story of Warcraft, one that spanned continents and races only to join them together for a crucial battle of their history.

Warcraft was a monument to an entire gaming generation, ranked 2nd best game of all time by German games magazine "GameStar." Its fate, however, was ultimately sealed as computing technology became better and overshadowed the old giant. Plus, with the rise of gaming consoles and handheld gaming devices, PC gaming lost its appeal slowly, and games like Starcraft or Warcraft eventually faded into oblivion.

But over on the horizon, Blizzard Entertainment came to the rescue. Following the success of their previous release of Starcraft: Remastered, they decided to come forth with their next great project: remastering Warcraft 3.

Using a new and revamped engine built over the foundations of the old one, they have rebuilt the world we once loved. Adding to that are new, high definition voices and sound effects that they recorded just for this old game. For the blurry characters of old, the team decided to upscale and remodel all present units to give them the 2019 high-def treatment they deserved. For the old user interface (UI), the development team settled on one that resembled the "Starcraft: Remastered" interface, offering more room for players to look at the gorgeous 4K character models. Also, to fit the new continuity from World of Warcraft, Blizzard opted to alter the story by a small margin, showing promising changes to the revived game.

However, not everyone was hyped when the game was announced. Many gamers expressed disappointment at Blizzard's move of remastering old games instead of developing new ones. Many, feeling uncomfortable at the company's decision, took to the internet and into forums. Some fans expressed concerns over Blizzard's decision to retcon a game they hold dear Some are unhappy with the graphics not being consistent with characters: unit models look too detailed while buildings look cartoonish.

Despite all this, the general population loved the announcement at Blizzcon. As the game slowly reaches its release date of December 31, 2019, the hype can only go up from here. For those of us who can't hold their excitement, here's a video of the crowd's insane reaction to the announcement:
