This year I decided to live in Olympia Mills again, because last year I had such a good experience. However, this year has blessed me with the neighbors from hell. Seriously. Blasting rap music at 3 p.m. on a weekday? For hours? And if that wasn’t already annoying, they decide to continue playing their music from what I can only assume are massive speakers until the sun rises, also on weekdays.
I’m all for partying and having a good time. This is college and we’re here to live up our twenties. But when you’re in an apartment complex, you have to remember that you do have neighbors, and the walls are paper thin. I’d rather not wake up at 4 a.m. listening to you talking on the phone, or hearing your TV that I feel like I’m watching with you. What ever happened to human decency and respect? We all have midterms, finals, homework, not to mention the extra-curricular activities some students partake in. What if I was an athlete who trained 30 hours a week on top of trying to balance college life?
Sleep is essential to surviving college, and students need to remember especially in an apartment complex that other people do live right next door. Be courteous, the world doesn’t revolve around you.
