I like living in an apartment with 5 other dudes. It can be fun, at times a blast, until. . .
One Problem that I have is that I work early morning custodial, not a resume builder but it keeps me fed. Because I wake up at 4:15 a.m., I usually try to get to some shut eye early so that I can avoid the same (eye’s being shut), the next day in class. I love my roommates. I love my roommate’s friends. I consider my roommates friends as my friends. But sometimes they need be my friend,… some other time.
I guess it is an inner conflict of telling people that it is time to leave. I am not scared of offending, I am good at that, I just need to be responsible and do it.
People are finally getting the hint. The other day I had my covers over my head while someone in the room (who doesn’t live at our apartment) was doing homework and talking to my other roommate. It took them a while but they finally realized it would be a good idea to leave.
My favorite was there was this one night where I came home to 4 to 5 people in my room all with laptops and headsets etc. having a StarCraft tournament. (My room’s not that big by the way). It was cool and all being surrounded by coordinated warfare with the sound effects and all, but sleeping more than 5 hours is nice as well.
I can’t really blame anyone but myself. If I want to, I can just ask people to leave. I am going to be more responsible from now on and get to bed on time. To do it I am going to have to enlist the support of my roommates/their friends in this worthy cause.
