We have all been there, at college, in a room with roommates we may or may not want to be rooming with. The semester starts with a clean room and tons of time and then suddenly somewhere between the third week and the end of the semester all of our belongings are all over the room and in each other’s closet. You and your roommate are closer than ice cream and apple pie, you go everywhere together, you borrow each other’s clothing and then suddenly little by little she is not returning your clothing. Your closet looks more bare than a clearance room in Bloomingdale’s and you want your stuff back! Your clothes are in her possession and hers are yours and it kind of becomes like a held-for-ransom situation, but you are so much smoother than that… your college roommates create the need for labels and you knew that before you ever started! Here is the story about why college roommates create the need for labels and how to lavishly live your time together in harmony! This is about to become like an episode of Pretty Little Liars if someone does not hand over the goods right?
It’s nice to get along, it’s nice to share, but there is a point where you want your own stuff and you want to put your feet in your own shoes! Having a roommate can be either a very great experience or one that wants to just make you vomit every-time you hear the word, there is really no middle ground! What if there was a solution to the problem of possession before possession ever become a thing?
No you are not 2 years old and fighting is not the way to go about it, but girls are girls, snarky remarks, attitude and back-stabbing words seem to fly when asked “did you take?” or “do you have?” Don’t let attitude and comments get in the way of a friendship and don’t lose your clothes to your roommate either! Rather, when she grabs that jean jacket to head out the door, ask her to go inside the pocket cause you have a surprise for her! Guess what she is going to find inside of the pocket?
No need to be the drama queens, or the Scream Queens because ain’t no one got time for that– just get ahead of the train-wreck, label, and go. Keep peace and harmony and mostly keep your stuff! That’s it for this tale of lavishly living college fashion out loud!
