Roommates.. They are Always There

Hey Everyone,

Another stressful week of exams has gone by, snow is slowly building up on the ground and we finally have a chance to sit back and catch our breath with the eagerness that awaits in the coming week. While you catch your breath, take a second to really appreciate your roommate because at the end of the week they are always there for you, understanding the stress and load of work you have to deal with on a weekly basis. College is not easy and having a roommate to go through it with is a blessing.

As much as you do not want to admit missing your Mom or Dad you will. Maybe you won’t on a day to day basis, but the days you are down or sick are the hardest when it comes to missing family. This is another place where your roommate can come in big time. My roommate and I have a very good relationship, I know that throughout everything, he’s got my back and I’ve got his. This week both him and I have gotten sick at separate times, neither of us have left the other one to deal with it on their own. We have help one another out and taken care of each other.

I know going in random can be a very scary thought. I mean you are going to be living with this person you have never met for 9 months, but give it a chance. I for one can say that my roommate is my best friend. We do almost everything together and I know I can trust him with my life. Whether you like it or not, your roommate is always there for you, don’t take it for granted.


Thanks for reading everyone. I hope your roommate blesses you as much as mine does!

I am a transfer here at Hope College, I am studying Psychology and am really enjoying my time here! I was born in Holland, MI, but grew up up north in Traverse City, MI. My parents have moved back down to Holland which is where I call home now! If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
