A perfect roommate is hard to come by; but if you find one, keep him or her around. My roommate, Tarah Michelle Kershaw, is one of my long-time friends.

Healthy comes before skinny

  Healthy is the new skinny — or at least it should be.    Dieting, thigh-gaps and skipping meals are too often spoken of in the average woman’s college apartment.
