interview time: roommate edition
Hello from four floors up!
The long awaited and highly requested post is finally here – a one of a kind interview with my roommate, Maggie Wallace (aka magwall) !!!
I spent some time asking her a few questions to get her perspective on college life thus far. Keep reading to learn more about how she has been enjoying school. While you’re at it, give her some love on Instagram – @maggiejwallace
What was the biggest adjustment you faced regarding college life?
I think the workload was a lot more than what I imagined it to be. I would suggest completing the assignment the day it is assigned so that the information is still fresh in your head and trying your hardest not to procrastinate!
Where is your favorite place to go on campus?
My favorite place to go on campus would probably be my dorm room because I love how soothing and relaxing our room is.
What is your favorite memory from college thus far?
My favorite memory would be going into the city of Philadelphia for the first time and facing the struggles of transportation. My friends and I (including madauer) wanted to have a hibachi night in Philly, but we ended up getting so lost. The best part of the night was the uber ride back to campus. I highly suggest downloading the uber app for college (it’s an essential for me!)
What is your favorite part about Saint Joe’s?
My favorite part about Saint Joe’s is how welcoming the upperclassmen have been. It was a hard transition at first, but having such positive role models to look up to made the transition so much easier. I also love the location of Saint Joe’s because it is surrounded by countless options of places to go – you can go into the city, Suburban square, or the Manayunk movie theatre, just to name a few.
What is your favorite part about our dorm room?
My favorite part about our dorm room would have to be the lights that we strung on both sides of our beds. We tend to shut the main lights off and use the twinkle lights as our main light source. After a stressful day of class, the twinkle lights create the perfect soothing and calm lighting. It puts everything at ease.
What have you found to be your top college essential?
My top college essential would have to be my Amazon Prime account. In addition to the twinkle lights, the best way for me to destress is to go online shopping. My mom may not like to hear this but I am just being honest. I love coming back to our room, turning on the twinkle lights, and doing some online shopping. My friends told me I had a problem but I finally realized it when the packaging center workers knew my name.
What are you most looking forward to a year from now?
This time next year, I am looking forward to living in an apartment with madauer. I can’t wait to decorate because I have a lot of ideas for our apartment. I hope to make a huge inspiration board across one of our walls where we can pin some of our memories/ photographs of our favorite times at SJU. I also can’t wait to see my friends on the SJU men’s basketball team in March Madness next spring.
That’s all for now! I hope you enjoyed this week’s post. As always, be sure to check out my various social media accounts, as well as Maggie’s Instagram.
