To My College Roommates While We Are On Break

I will miss you guys!!

For the past four months we have shared so much laughter and long nights. We have talked about our days and motivated each other to keep going when times were hard. We have gone on random late night trips to Wawa and McDonalds. We have done so much and for that reason I will miss you over this month break we have.

I loved this time with you all over the school semester and I would not have enjoyed it as much as I did if it wasn't for sharing space with all of you. We have worked so hard through the whole semester and I am so proud of every thing we accomplished!

Now we all deserve a break from all the work, but I will miss you all.

I hope everyone has an amazing time over break and enjoyed Christmas with family and friends!

As we enter into January and the cold season I hope we can get out of our comfy blankets and hang out soon! I hope we can catch up on all the adventures we have had back home and share our Christmas stories, even though we already do in the group chat. I have been loving sending each other pictures of our dogs and still keeping in contact even when we are not sharing a room.

Have a good rest of your break guys and we will start fresh next semester!

A Random Roommate Isn't Always A Bad Thing

My experience with having a random roommate.

Toward the end of my freshmen year, I was anxious about one roommate for the following year. I had roomed with someone I knew from high school my freshmen year, so I had had nothing to worry about that year, but it wasn't going to be the case this year.

I had decided to stay on campus my second year, while most of my friends were moving off campus. So, I was going to have to go random for the year. There were many times I couldn't help but panic at the thought. What if we hated each other? What if she thought I was weird? What ifs flooded my minds.

When I got my roommate assignment over the summer, I reached out to my roommate once. It was a simple who's bringing what to the dorm. There wasn't much I could tell from the conversation, so I still felt in the dark.

I moved into my dorm almost a week early due to mentoring for a summer bridge program. I was careful decorating the room not wanting to upset my roommate before she even moved.

Enter my roommate, Emily, days after I had moved. Strangely enough, we hit off right away. About a day after she moved in, I realized I had nothing to worry about.

I couldn't ask for a better roommate experience. We've become such close friends in such a short time. We can stay talking for hours and go on tangents that had nothing to do with the original topic (a true sign of friendship).

Nights filled with pizza and watching weird shows are usually the highlights of my week. We both have a passion for writing and can go on talking about our latest ideas. Theories on all different aspects of life and shows flood throughout the room.

But it's not just the fun we have that's made her such a great roommate and friend. It's the fact she accepts me for me. She laughs at my weird quirks and random habits. She's comforted me when my heart was broken and felt my world was over. She was one of the few people who made me feel better and allowed me to vent.

I know I got lucky in terms of a random roommate. Not everyone makes a good friend out of their experiences. I'm thankful that I did though. She has been such a great part of my sophomore year of school. I can't wait to live with her again next year and continue our adventures.

Shoutout To My Strat Fam Who I Love Even More One Year Later

I grew to love not only myself but those around me even more.

It is approaching the one year mark since I joined a sorority. At this time last year, I was debating whether or not Greek life was for me. I had no clue what to expect. Would I be thrilled to be involved in it or would it become a burden I regretted? I can say now that it has been almost 365 days since I joined and I don’t regret it a bit. Let's just say things would be very different if it weren’t for my big sister, my twin, and both of my amazing little sisters.

I don’t believe in extremes, such as the words best, worst, or hate for instance. However, I do feel though that my big sister is the best for me. We met and instantly connected over ironic similarities. I knew that even if she weren’t my big, I would look up to her no matter what. In either case, I knew that she would also become someone I could call a close friend. I have to give her props for not only having one little sister to be a mentor for but two.

My twin, or to explain to those that are not in greek life, is my big’s other little. One may think “wouldn’t that be difficult to share a big or what if you guys did not get along?”

These thoughts crossed my mind, as they usually do to anyone that's big has another little already. My twin couldn’t have been a better match and companion by my side throughout the second half of last year into sophomore year too. Alongside my big sister, she has also always been there for me, through the ups and downs no matter what.

This past semester it became my turn to switch roles and not only be a little, but now a big sister too. I told my friends that I wouldn’t want to be a big unless I found a little that I really connected with well.

With my luck, I did not only find one but two. I couldn’t be happier, more proud, or honored to have them as littles. Not only have I taught them and guided them throughout college thus far, but they also have taught me so much within this past semester.

I look back and now have such an appreciation for my big sister for all the work it takes to be a good mentor. The truth is we all have a winding path, especially in college. Nobody is perfect and the moments in which we may not do our best show our realness. It is within those times that I grow to love not only myself but those around me even more.

So, thank you to my big for being there for me and the older sisterly figure I always wanted. Thank you to my twin for always having my back, a shoulder to cry on, and one to tell awful jokes to. Last but not least, thank you to my two littles who are beautiful inside and out for not only being my littles, but also some of my best friends.

“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life that want you in theirs; the ones that accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile & who love you no matter what.”
