Every Single One Of My Roommates Has Transferred And It’s Them, Not Me


Every Single One Of My Roommates Has Transferred And It’s Them, Not Me
Lindsey Ocock

As I was taking in the fact that I'm halfway done with college with one of my roommates and best friends, I realized that all of my roommates I have ever had transferred to a new school.

Whether we had a great relationship as roommates, we were best friends for a semester, met through mutual friends or were completely random — they're all gone now and I'm left taking on College of Charleston day by day.

Recently, I've been thinking about my strengths frequently and all of my strengths have to do with people, such as communication or positivity.

I'm rarely at a loss for words — I am constantly making friends and I love getting to know people. No one really intimidates me that much and I want to know about people and their story and why they wake up in the morning.

You can never make enough connections or friends.

"In this world, there are no strangers, only friends you haven't met."

I came to a school where I knew no one and I went random on my roommate because I knew no matter how different from me she could be I would be able to relate her.

I remember moving into college and not having a roommate at the start of my freshmen year because my random roommate had texted me a month before to tell me she wasn't coming to The College at all. So I started the journey off with two suitemates and no roommate.

Everything seemed scary that first weekend and I honestly bounced around to different friend groups all throughout my first year.

There was a lot of roommate drama that first year and it truly was not my fault.

I just said now positivity is one of my strengths but this is going to sound so negative — every time I thought things were looking up that first year, some other sh*t hit the fan.

I had four different roommates in two years and it made me who I am today.

I'll say this until the end: living in the dorms in college builds character and no one will change my mind about that.

Everyone reading this probably thought I was going to spill all the tea and blast all of my ex-roommates' news so here it is...

All four of my college roommates I've had in the past two years transferred and I was NOT a bad roommate.

P.S. I love my roommates this year! They are my freakin' BFFs and I love College of Charleston! All of you are fake for transferring, but I hope you're happy and I love you!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
