A Shoutout to My Roomie
As it turns out, my roommate Anna and I are best friends. Ok yeah, that sounds pretty cheesy, but it's true.
We're the southern gals on our floor; I'm from Houston, she's from Atlanta. Though I was hoping for a roommate from the north who would help me survive the cold, we're surviving the Hanover winters together.
Living with someone you don't really know is a big deal, but Dartmouth does such a good job pairing you with a compatible roomie. I don't know I'd do without Anna; we have such similar sleep schedules, eating habits, opinions about mac and cheese... I could go on forever. She's the best.
The moral of the story is, even if you don't pick your roommate, it works out! In fact, it probably even worked out better than any roommate I ever could have chosen myself. Even though I've only known her since September, it feels like I've known Anna a lifetime. I'm so glad we get to share a room in the choates together - Cohen for life!

This week, I wanted to give you an example of what a day at Dartmouth (albeit long-distance Dartmouth) looks like.
It took a couple weeks, but then I arrived at the (rather obvious) conclusion that school shouldn't preclude my making pancakes or doing chores or watching Frozen II. Zoom does not render Dartmouth some unsympathetic entity.
