What Really Happens When You Live With Your Best Friends

People always say, "Don't live with your best friends. It will ruin your friendships and you'll hate each other." I'm sure there is some truth in that, but what I've found is just the opposite. My relationships with my bffs/roommates have strengthened immensely.

There are times when we argue, of course. But when you live with someone, you learn how your personalities mesh. You have to see them again, so you learn how to resolve arguments and move on. My roommates and I have a lot of laughs and a lot of tears, and I wouldn't trade living with them for anything else.

I've found the Chandler to my Joey. And if you live with your friends, you know exactly what I mean. We are ready for a TV network to start filming our crazy lives any day now. Here's 20 reasons why living with your best friends is the greatest thing ever, as told by the cast of Friends:

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
