What I Learned From My Roommates

Strangers became family, and moments turned into memories.

What I Learned From My Roommates
Angela Cramer

I had the biggest blessing when I got the opportunity to live with some of the most amazing people. I was terrified when I came to school that I would live with someone who was completely different than me and we would have nothing in common. In fact, I got just the opposite. I had strangers who became family and moments that turned into the best memories. I can't even begin to put into words how lucky I am to have found them. Together, we have been through it all. The ups and downs with the goods and the bads, but these experiences made us stronger. Part of who I am today is because of you, and everything I have learned from you.

Lesson One: There is never a bad time to dance it out.

Although we may actually have the best worst dancing, none of it matters when we are always laughing.

Lesson Two: There is good in every bad situation.

It might be hard to find, but no matter what it is always there. I mean hey thats what happy hour drinks are for?! In all seriousness though, there are blessings in dark places, you just have to be willing to find them.

Lesson Three: Laughter really is the best medicine.

Life is better when your laughing. Plain and simple. As the famous saying goes "every minute spent upset is one minute of happiness you will never get back"

Lesson Four: Separation Anxiety exists.

When we go home for summer, its hard to wonder how we can function without each other. Who else is going to tell you to make sure you have your keys, or to make sure you turn the oven off.

Lesson Five: Throwback music is always better blasting.

Who doesn't want to listen to "I Want It That Way" by The Backstreet Boys and sing at the top of your lungs to it?! An major crisis can always be made a little better with music.

Lesson Six: We will always be friends.

No matter what life throws at us, you will always be my person and living with you showed me how lucky I am.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
