The 9 Stages of Seeing Your Roommate After Summer


The end of summer is bittersweet - on one hand, you're going back to a semester filled with homework and boring lectures, but on the other hand, you get to go back to parties, independence and, more importantly, your roommate. Your roommate has been with you through the good times and the bad. She's watched you lie on the couch panting after double-fisting cheesy bread and Cinna Stix, and yet, she still chooses to live with you. Here's what to expect when you reunite with your roomie this fall!

Stage 1: Excitement

You finally have your partner in crime back. Who else will hand you a glass of water and force-feed you animal crackers after a night of too much Fireball?

Stage 2: Giving compliments

They'll be exchanged for at least two full minutes:

 "Ugh, you're so tan; I'm jealous!"

"No way, I'm a ghost. You definitely look fit, though!"

Stage 3: Catching up 

This is the part where you both feel obligated to ask how each other's summers were even though you texted each other daily about how insanely bored you were.

“Where’d you go? Who’d you hook up with?”

Stage 4: Making plans

This is the year that you're going to go to clubs, music festivals and weekend getaways EVERY weekend.

(You both know that won't actually happen. See actual weekend plans below).

Stage 5:Deciding weekly rituals 

Every Sunday will be dedicated to sitting on the couch together with pad thai and the new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, just as the Lord (Scott Disick) intended.

Stage 6:Rummaging through each other's closets

Why wait around for sales at the mall when you can borrow your roommate's romper any time you want?

Stage 7: Figuring out how to live with her again

Excuse me? Ma'am? I'm trying to watch Game of Thrones on my laptop, so, do you mind? One does not simply watch Scandal with no headphones in. 

Stage 8:Remembering her annoying little habits

It's always hard to deal with someone who doesn't believe in cleanliness. "Is your milk-encrusted cereal bowl just going to bring itself over to the sink, or... ?"

Stage 9:Putting everything aside and hanging out together just like old times

The moment you've both been waiting for since May.
