When you have a roommate, you start to notice every little detail about them.  You know their pet peeves, their cleaning habits, their unique characteristics… literally everything!  Sometimes you leave the year as best friends, other times you leave wanting nothing to do with one another.  If you’ve had a roommate, you’ll understand these 5 struggles!

  • Walking in the room and she’s wearing your clothes.  This can either be something to laugh at or one of the biggest triggers for an argument!  It actually happens so much more than you think it would. 
  • Hitting the snooze button over… and over… and over again.  If you’re this roommate, then come up with some different ways to force yourself out of bed.  If it’s the other way around, this can drive you absolutely crazy!
  • Having lots of friends over when you’re trying to study.  Ugh, this is the worst!  You may want them to stay because it’s so much more fun than doing homework, right?  But when you get that test grade back, you may think differently!
  • An hour after you clean and the room’s already a disaster again.  I’m sure both of you can take a little bit of the blame on this one, but it’s usually pretty one sided!  It may help to pair yourself up with someone who’s just as organized as you are.
  • Trying to get ready at the same time.  As girls, this can be super fun or super hard.  It seems like you always need to shower at the same time, use the blow dryer at the same time, etc.  Come up with a game plan to eliminate this problem!

High School to College Transition: What You Should Know

Transitioning from high school to college is a big deal.  You’re moving away from home, forced to make new friends, and have to decide what you want to do for the rest of your life.  That’s a lot to think about!  Luckily, there are multiple ways to make this transition easier.

If you are doing a random roommate, take the time to get to know them before you get to school!  If you live far away, text, add each other on social media sites, or talk on the phone!  If you live close, meet up for lunch or shopping.  It’s a great way to break the ice!

It’s important to remember that you’re not alone when you step on campus.  Every single freshman is in your same position, therefore it’s important to be outgoing!  It’s the number one rule to making friends in college.  Don’t be shy to introduce yourself to anyone and everyone you meet.  You might just meet your new best friend!  Also, make a point to get to know your professors.  Having a professor know you personally is a great way to score brownie points and get extra help in class.  They may also be very helpful in the future when it comes to picking classes or getting a job.  It’s also important to make your dorm room as comfortable as possible!  Even though it won’t be like your room at home, try to make it as close as possible!Chelsea Crockett- dorm

Do not worry if you have no idea what you want to major in.  Take time your freshman year to decide what you want to do by completing your general education courses first.  This way, you will have another year to decide!

Most importantly, stay true to yourself!  Someone on campus will love you for you, so do not change to be part of a certain crowd.  Soon enough, you will find a close group of friends!  Everything good takes time, right?!  Live it up; college is the best time of your life!

XOXO,

Hi Insiders,

            Do you share a room or small space with a sibling or live away at school with a   roommate?  Sometimes, sharing a small space with someone can be very difficult.  Personalities clash, cleanliness becomes a problem, and some of their habits may bug you!  Here are a few tips to keep you and your roommate or sibling from budding heads.Chelsea Crockett- dorm

            Everyone wants their own space and their own place to get away, but sometimes you’ve got to share a space with someone for long periods of time.  Make sure to always pick up after yourself even if you’ve had a long day.  A lot of people get in the habit or throwing their clothes on the ground and don’t clean it up until it becomes too much!  Keep your clutter under control.  If your roommate does something that bothers you, take a breather.  Everyone does things differently.  Just because he/she may whistle constantly doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing!  If it bothers you that much and you’ve gave it some thought, then kindly bring up the matter with your roommate.  If they set 10 alarms before their 8a.m. class, then it’s okay to bring that up right away!  Rate the issue on a scale of 1-10 and think about if the issue is worth discussing!  Always be open with your roommate.  It’s hard to keep secrets when you’re living so close to that person.  No matter who they are, always try to be their friends.  I know I’d rather be friends with my roommate than enemies! 

            Take all of this into consideration and enjoy having a roomie!  One day you might actually miss it!  Be honest, courteous, and open…all of these attributes go a long way!

-Chelsea
