But whatever happens, nothing is worth ruining a friendship. And dont forget you also have to live with them.. so dont fight over stupid things, hug and make up.

You are going to see how your roommate handles stress and exhaustion. Finals, relationships, peer pressure, home-sickness can all take a toll on someone. Be able to recognize the stages of a typical college emotional shut down.

STAGE 1: ANGER

signs: throwing things, slamming doors, ranting, yelling.

STAGE 2: EXHAUSTION 

signs: no longer cares for appearance and wears the same t-shirt multiple days in a row.  

Giphy

STAGE 3: SHUT DOWN OF ALL EMOTIONAL FEELINGS 

signs: wont laugh at funny memes, get excited to see a puppy in public, or be affected at all by a sorority t-shirt sale.

The best thing to do at this point is step back and let them get back to normal. Whatever you do, dont touch them.

Raw

The Ugly. 

You gotta go when you gotta go. Whether its a bad case of food poisening, the flu, or the aftermath of a long night fraternity-hopping, your roommates are going to be there. How embarrassing right? Nah, after a couple weeks, it will feel somewhat normal. They wont judge, because sooner or later it will be them stinkin' up the bathroom.
