Since I have been totally neglecting my blog for the past few weeks, I am going to make up for doing so by doing a special 3-part blog series. Thus, check back tomorrow for the next installment of this special I-am-so-sorry-for-keeping-you-waiting blog series.
If you’ve been following my blog for the past few months, you have already read about this unfortunate occurrence = the break-up.
Rule #1: Do not schedule your classes and extracurricular activities so they coincide with your significant other’s/best friend’s schedule.
You never know what is going to happen, and if for some reason everything falls apart with this person you definitely do not want to have to go through seeing her/him all the time after you guys break it off. Having to see my ex all the time was torture because seeing my ex was a constant reminder of the break-up. At the time, it may feel like forever but trust me, having a school life separate from your best friend/significant other is a good idea for everyone involved.
Having to deal with this break-up took up all of my energy and made me feel horrible about myself. Chances are you don’t want to feel like this too, so definitely remember Rule #1!
Rule #2: Hang out with good friends.
Lucky for me, I have made a lot of good friends during my stay at Ball State. Whenever I was feeling really bad about everything I would just call some friends up and spend time with them. My friends helped remind me that I have people who care about me and reminded me of all the good qualities I have. Ball State is full of great people, so make sure that you put yourself out there and try to befriend some while you are here!
Rule #3: Let your roommate know what’s up.
My roommates so far at Ball State have been awesome. You’ll hear more about the awesome stuff my roommate this year has been doing for me, but in this post I’ll just briefly mention some of her awesomeness.
My roommate this year helped me:
1. Clean my side of the room with the help of dance music and friendly prodding.
2. Defriend my ex on Facebook so I could get on with my life.
3. Laugh about the horribleness of this semester.
It’s a good idea to let your roommate know what is going on with you, especially if it is something bad, so that they know why you aren’t talking as much or why you spend most of the day laying in bed cuddling with your stuffed animal. And if you get lucky, your roommate may even help you through your rough patch by being supportive and awesome. Communication is important, especially if it involves the person you are living with, so make sure you talk to your roommate. It will make living with them so much more enjoyable and easier!
Rule #4: Keep your chin up!
It’ll get better, but only if you try to get things better.
You’re allowed to feel bad, but try your best not to let every day be a bad one.
Look for my next installment of A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Car Wreck tomorrow!
