    Just hang out with other people in your room, and when the time comes to sleep, do so alone

    And never have to worry about your stupid roommate waking up at 7 to take a shower every morning

    This is how I explain it to people

    You can have an awesome time with a roommate in a double room. Could be a blast. But I don't know a single person who wanted a single room, and then regretted asking for one, whereas I can name dozens of people who were looking forward to a double and had a miserable experience.

    The irony for me behind those ads is I in no way need that help given I lose on average 2 pounds per week already.

    And I'd prefer this pace to starving myself.

    Dude, starving won't do a damn thing if you eat like a pig and just gain it all back in a matter of days.

    I do think I'm at the point where my 3+miles per day isn't going to cut it and I just need to start weight lifting.

    I've had several friends who hate sleeping alone. One of those friends had a single her senior year, but slept at her friends apartments every night. Me, I loved being in a single, never had to wear pants.

    I am looking at housing, the images they pick . . . do people really put that much creativty into their dorms, really?

    All the Dorms room I've been in (I've never lived in a dorm myself, I found an apartment for the same price of the dorm.) was so dirty that they could be shrines for the god of pestilence, Nurgle.

    Especially dorms with women. I thought women were suppose to be clean! Instead, all their dirty clothes was piled on the floor with a thin walkway that connects the bed to the bathroom to the front door.

    Bleh, I'm so happy I didn't have to go through the whole dorm thing. People always talk about the 'joys of living in the dorm'. I managed to experience the 'joys' of dorm living, and not have to live in a dorm.

    it's sad. my roommate and me were super cool beginning of the semester. then she over heard me a few weeks ago talking about my lack of religion on the phone and since then she hasn't talked to me at all and just gives me a cold shoulder. fantastic. i mean, all i said essentially was "wow, I can't believe my campus had some guys come and talk about atheism, it was a really great experience to know I'm not alone." I didn't say anything remotely like "man fuck religion blaaaarrrrggghhh"

    people suck sometimes. it also reminds me why I never tell anyone.

    On the other hand, how great of a relationship were you going to have with a religious nutjob.

    Maybe find some better people to be friends/roommates with.

    Some that are tolerant and/or don't give a shit about your personal preferences that have nothing to do with them.

    I didn't think she was a religious nutjob. I knew she was really religious which is fine, I don't mind at all. But I didn't think she'd shun me if she found out. oops.

    Seriously though only like two of my closest friends know and of course my mom does. everyone else I play the "spiritual but not religious" card because that receives a lot less judgment. people usually drop it after that.

    I walk a fine line with my religious views. I wouldn't really call myself Atheist, cause I think there could or there couldn't be a form of higher power, but I'm not bothered by the fact nor do I care enough to make my life align with either of the opposing view points. I live my life how I want with fairly high morals, and if people are bothered by the fact that I found my morals without God then they can deal with it how they wish, won't bother me a bit.

    I also live in the bible belt and the fact that this hasn't garnered me any enemies is something I'm fairly happy with.

    when i had my jaw surgery i went from approx. 225lbs to 195 in about a week, at the end of the second week i was 190.

    that was starving.

    and then i gained it back over two months for football. lifting weights and inhaling everything edible. which meant blender food.

    It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to believe in, but as an adult quickly approaching 30 years old, I think I've worked it out sufficiently to be in a place that I'm comfortable.

    Basically:

    1. I believe in God;
    2. God/Jesus's teachings are basically, "Try your best to be a good person" (Don't be a dick);
    3. Live my life according to the morals my parents taught me in order to facilitate #2;
    4. The Bible is a good tool for teaching/seeking guidance but it's 100% true/factual and shouldn't be read as such; and
    5. Organized religion/church-going is not for me but I won't judge anyone who finds it beneficial

    That's the long and short of it and I think I've done pretty good so far.

    Depends on the school. Our bookstore sells a shirt that says "VCU The Best 5-7 Years Of My Life" so it's not a huge deal here, but at the other school I went to for a bit it was a big deal.

    So I visited UT Austin on Friday (and by visited I mean walked around Campus for a little while) and decided to come back the last week of school, exam week which is a week I probably won't have to attend because of exemptions, and speak with a admission's advisor and, after looking around on the Liberal Arts, I now have a lot of questions for them: specifically being AP testing and placement.
