Sorry!

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. It’s been a crazy past couple of weeks. But I have officially finished my freshman year of college. Finals were insane and I moved into my new apartment with my friends this past weekend. I love it! Now I’m working on summer classes and getting a job for the summer. Both a starting off rocky so wish me luck! I’ll be posting soon about tips for finals, where to look for summer jobs, and any other things you guys might have questions on.

Roommates

Some of you when you head off to college already know who your roommate is, as is you planned to live with that person. You’ve either been friends for along time or you kind of know each other and just didn’t want to live with a complete stranger. I, personally, did not know my roommate before college. It was a completely random match. We had Skyped over the summer and exchanged numbers to help break the ice and discuss things for our room. It turns out my roommate and I didn’t exactly mesh well. It’s not like we hated each other, we just weren’t really compatible. But I did, however, hit it off with my neighbor. She and I had a lot in common and became really good friends. It also turned out that she wasn’t getting along with her roommate either, so at the end of the semester we each asked our roommates if they would be ok with a roommate swap. They were so all we had to do was file the paperwork and get approved. Within a week we got the go ahead to switch rooms and I am now much happier with my current roommate, who also happens to be one of my best friends. So don’t worry that you won’t get along with your roommate. chances are things will work out fine, and if not switching roommates is fairly easy, just remember to communicate with your roommate. And if it gets really bad talk to your RA because they are there to help. I love my RA, he is amazing and I feel completely comfortable going to him for anything. Also if you do decide to room with someone you know be cautious because no matter how close your relationship is, you get a whole lot closer when you live together and sometimes it works but sometimes it can ruin a friendship. I’ve seen both happen. Just don’t stress about it and be yourself around your roommate because it’s your room too and you should feel comfortable.
