All The Reasons I Hate My Dorm Are Also Why I Love It

It's a Love/Hat Relationship.

Living in a room half the size of a normal bed room is not the ideal living area. Living with a complete stranger who you did not choose to live with. Nothing that brought you together accept living in the shoe box sized room. Absolutely no privacy and they`ll always know all about your life because you have to share it in a room that should not be considered a room.

But also my roommate has became one of my best friends. After a long day I get to come home and vent about life. She knows all my problems and she can understand and be there for me when I have a bad day. She gets me breakfast when I am sick and offers to go out and do stuff when she sees I am sad. So yes I hate not having my own room with my own privacy, but I love the constant feeling of knowing someone is always there for me.

Sharing five showers and five toilets. It can be very awkward in the bathrooms, once again no privacy. You could be using the bathroom and someone else next to you is too. It is so awkward and sometimes the sinks do not work so you have to go to your room to wash your hands but you are wondering if the person in the bathroom with you thinks you are just a gross girl who does not wash her hands. Also the amount of hair in the showers could make a wig for someone.

Although I do at least once a week run into a friend who lives down the hall walking to the bathroom or leaving it. This always starts conversations and leads to come into my room to hang out. Taking a shower is kinda like taking a shower with your friends everyday. You can just have a conversation with the person next to you while getting ready. It is also pretty nice not having to clean the bathrooms because the maintenance people do it for you every day. I hate not having my own bathroom but sharing one with friends in your hall can be fun too.

Not being able to cook has been one of the biggest struggles. As a health nut not being able to cook my own food has restricted me from eating a lot of foods they serve in the dinning halls. Also not being able to just walk down stairs in your PJs because there are always people there that will see you does get annoying.

I never have to cook, so yes this is a downside but also an upside. Having your food prepped and ready for you by just asking the workers to make something in a matter of minutes. Even though you pay for your meal plan at the beginning of the semester, it is very nice not having to pay for food off your credit card. Being able to have someone me a smoothie or get late night chicken nuggets is somewhat worth not being able to cook my own food.

Lastly, having to live in a building filled with hundreds of students. Having to see that guy or girl you made out with three nights ago and instantly regretting it when you see them in the elevator is not ideal. Or having to either take six flights of stairs after a long day or wait ten minutes for a elevator ride just to get to your room can be quite frustrating.

But getting to see all types of people and friends when you come home or leave can be fun as well. It can be really fun seeing all the different type of people living in these halls together. Sometimes you see people stoned out of their mind in the elevator, or the drunks, even people doing their laundry at midnight. It is always an interesting time coming home late. Not only that being able to see your best friend at any point in time because they live two floors above you is probably the best thing in the dorms.

So yes the dorms suck sometimes and it is definitely different but for the same reasons it sucks thats what makes your first year in the dorms so much fun.

Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

What I Have And Will Continue To Learn From Working With Kids

I always say that I will learn more from my students than they will from me, and I cannot wait to start that journey.

I have loved kids ever since I can remember.

I was an only child up until I was 5 years old. Those years were great, but I spent a good amount of them laying on the floor, crying and begging my parents for another sibling.

Soon my sister came, then another sister and then my brother.

I loved them so much and wanted to do nothing but care for them.

My siblings made me realize how much I love working with kids, how much I love teaching them and how much I love learning from them.

I had the opportunity to help my dad coach my sister's softball and basketball teams. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

Throughout high school, I spent time volunteering in elementary classrooms, and any "uncertainty" I had about what I wanted to do with my life was gone.

The "uncertainty" was the fact that I maybe wouldn't get paid enough, I wouldn't be good enough or people would think I wasn't smart enough.

But I can learn more from kids than I could ever learn from my professors.

And I'm not saying anything against any profession. But we all have our things.

And mine is kids, mine is teaching.

Children teach me to take life a little less seriously.

They have taught me that you truly never know what other people are going through and we are all going through something.

Children will teach me to keep my patience.

They will keep me young forever.

Children have taught me to never pass judgment and always spread kindness

They will teach me lessons that I can't even imagine right now and things I don't even know.

I always say that I will learn more from my students than they will from me, and I cannot wait to start that journey.
