7 Things You Know To Be True If You Are Close With Your Roommate

They are the girls who really miss you, when they say they miss you.

7 Things You Know To Be True If You Are Close With Your Roommate
Lauren Shouse

A few things you know to be true with you are close with your roommate...

1. She's always there.

She's always there no matter what time of day. She's there if you need a laugh, a cry, coffee date, Walmart run, to vent, and the list goes on. She's even there when she's actually not physically there, she will reply within seconds at the time when you need her the most.

2. You always have someone to make a pallet with.

In my case, my roommate and I have trouble sleeping some nights so at one in the morning we decided to take our beds and move them into the floor just like were making a pallet.

3. She understands you.

She knows how you like things like a planner and white board that always has some kind of list on it. How you like to rearrange the room at one in the morning and she helps you even though she just wants to lay in bed. She knows that you take on way to much at one point and you stress yourself out. She knows that we don't speak in the morning unless it's really important. She knows when you just need to scream or cry or laugh. She has all the right words to say.

4. When you have a bad day, she also has a bad day.

No matter what you think, if you have a very close relationship with your roommate you have a bad day well, so does she. It happens every freakin time.

5. She knows how important sleep is.

Naps are the key to our days. She gets out of class before me on some days, so I know for a fact when I get out of class I am taking a nap because she is already asleep. On other days I don't have class and she does and she does everything in her power to stay quiet so I don't wake up. (Make sure you discuss this first thing, don't get stuck with morning person if you are not one.)

6. She is your best friend.

She becomes someone that you had no idea would become so close to you. You start to realize her problems are yours and the same with your problems. You never imagined you could be so close with one person and sure enough you let every wall you ever had up because you know she loves you no matter what.

7. You call her every day when she leaves school.

It could be a weekend or a break and y'all still talk every day because something new has happened and you have to tell her. You cannot wait until you see her next because she knows all the little details and she has to know this one too!

So for all you roommates out there, love your roomies a little more and remember to thank them for everything they do for you. They don't get enough credit most of the time. They are the girls who really miss you, when they say they miss you.

To my roomie: Thank you for dealing with my attitude when I get hungry and/or tired. Thank you for always being up for crazy adventures. Thank you for always sleeping on the floor with me when it's too cold because we refuse to shut the window. Thank you for crock pot dinners. Thank you for the endless support. Thank you for loving me at my worst and picking me up when I don't think there's any hope left. Thank you for the advice at 2am or 2pm. I love you more than you'll ever really know.

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
