7 Things You'll Miss About Your Roommate Over Winter Break

Living together through it all, you'll never be as close to anyone as your college roommate. Whether it's a wild night out, a late-night study session, or a Netflix and ice cream binge, the two of you are pretty much inseparable. Your roommate becomes your go-to for just about everything-- surprising you with your favorite snacks, telling you when it's time to shut off the tv and be productive, and, of course, picking you up when she knows you need it most. So when you head home all alone for winter break, it can be hard to readjust to life without your person just a few feet away. Here's some of the things you'll miss most about your roommate this break...

1. The Pep Talks

Your roommate knows it's best to be brutally honest. You'll miss her daily encouragement to go to the gym, to class, the library, and everything in between.

2. Cooking Together

Part of the fun of living together is being able to cook fun meals. Making your own lunch at home is just not the same.

3. Their Closet

Arguably the best thing about living with a roommate is having double the clothes! You'd be lying if you said you didn't wish you had that one top of hers this break.

4. Surprising You With Your Favorite Things

With your roommate always looking out for you, she tends to pick up your favorites while at the store. There's nothing like coming home after a long day of class to a Coke Zero already waiting for you in the fridge!

5. The No Judgment Zone

No matter how stupid it may be, your roomie is always there to listen and offer advice. You'll miss always being able to show her your outfit, vent about your day, and ask her to edit the text you're writing.

6. The Little Things

When you're living with someone in such small quarters, the smallest things really do make the biggest difference. It won't be the same without watching tv together, having her straighten that piece of hair you can't reach, talking about your days, and all your inside jokes too.

7. Your Partner In Crime

She's the first face you see every morning, and the last face you see every night. You'll miss life with your roomie and be counting down the days until the two of you are back!

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.

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.

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.
