10 Ways You Know Your Roommate Is Your Best Friend

10 Ways You Know Your Roommate Is Your Best Friend

If your roommate is also your best friend, you sure are lucky.


Picking a roommate is a very stressful time. You are looking for someone that has the specific qualities you want, but that person is so hard to find. And you never know if she will actually turn out to be who she sounds like behind her text messages to you. But, you may get lucky like I did.

My roommate is amazing, and I could not image going through college without her. Everyone always asks if we knew each other before coming to college because it is clear how close we are, but really we didn't. We see each other all the time, and not just in our room. We have so much in common, yet are so different from one another, that it ultimately creates the perfect match. I am so thankful for her and for how close we are.

Here are some ways to know if you and your roommate are the perfect match, like mine and me are.

1. You have every meal together, literally.

Whether you take the trip of campus to a nice meal, or eat at the nasty dining hall together, you are with her every time you eat.

2. You say goodnight to her every single night.

You have to fall asleep to her every night and wake up to her every morning.

3. You borrow each others clothes.

You never have the right top to go with that skirt you love. But, your roommate does. And you even wash it for her before you give it back.

4. You take the trash out together.

No one enjoys taking the trash out, so it's always nice having her with you. Especially considering the large amount you have to take out every time.

5. You straighten the back of her hair for her.

There is always at least one piece back there that you can not see. But, your roommate can, so she helps you out every time.

6. You gossip together.

From boy drama to sorority drama, theres always gossip to share. You can talk to her about any of it because you trust her with anything and everything.

7. She gives you the best advice.

She is able to tell you what to do in every situation, even when it is not what you want to hear.

8. You can have a night in together and still have a good time.

You grab some snacks, turn on a classic movie, and have as much fun as you would during a night out.

9. You can be yourself around each other.

No matter who you are or what mood you are in, you do not feel the need to be someone else to fit her approval. You can let your true colors shine, and so can she.

10. You joke around with each other.

Laughing is the best. My roommate is a very sarcastic person, which has now rubbed off on me. I can always count on a laugh when we are joking around with each other using sarcasm.

Lucky me, I get to live with her next year too!! I can't wait to make so many more memories together.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
