Yeah, super vague title, but this is a super vague post. I don’t know really what direction to take here except that I feel that my roommates are probably the people most deserving of a post and it is long overdue. So if you have ever wondered what it is like living with 5 other women here ya go.
You can make super impromptu plans when you have roommates.

But staying home can be just as fun.

They know your likes.

Your dislikes.

You know their schedules better then you know your own. Always knowing when they are skipping class.

You have to share space with them. Which can be nice but also super inconvenient when you want to sleep and they want to party or vice versa.

My roommates:

Which leads to my next point…They wake you up. I love sleep and don’t appreciate being cut mid-R.E.M. cycle but that can usually be solved by asking them to keep it down.

They are my personal therapists, giving me only the best advice on everything from an outfit to a paper idea.

They are my people (Grey’s Anatomy reference), they are always the first people to know what’s going on in my life.

However, this is how I become the person to come to with drama, and my advice is practically non-existent.

When you spend a lot of time with them, weird shit starts to seem normal. For instance, my roommate and I spent countless hours on Pottermore (the Harry Potter fan website). It’s normal when you are together.

Also having roommates can be messy. Meaning they make huge messes and never clean up. And by “they” I mean “me” and by “messes” I mean “destroy our kitchen at least twice a week”.

There are constant arguments over who ate who’s food, but as annoying as it is to come home and find your last bit of cheese gone it is great when you need an egg for a recipe and don’t feel like going to the store.

They are my partners in crime, because they are always down to do things with me like watch netflix or get menchies.

You have to spend times with their friends (no matter how shitty) and at least pretend to like it. Do you think I like going to super bowl parties? NO, I do it because my roommate says she wants me to meet her friends.

Separation from them feels like losing your other half, but you tend to under appreciate them when they are around.

They are some of my biggest supporters and I know even the alumni roommates are still some of my closest friends in life. (got to leave it on a sappy note)
