I haven't gotten a good night's sleep in a few weeks now. My roommate is just bad at the whole "DON'T A SHITTY ROOMMATE" thing. He doesn't own headphones. I gifted him a pair. Doesn't use them. I have 8:30am classes some days of the week and I like to get to bed by 11:30-12pm. He doesn't need 8 hours of sleep like normal human beings so often, he is still up doing homework when I need to go to sleep. I asked him if he could go to the library, which is a block away, while he finishes his homework so that I could, you know, actually fucking fall asleep. He HAS to keep his extremely bright lamp on. When I do convince him to turn it off, the glow of his laptop makes the room look like a nightclub. His keyboard pressing sounds like thunder. His writing might as well be nails on chalkboard. How does he respond to my suggestion? Takes it like an insult. It really isn't a huge request. Last year, my roommates always left, including me, if they had to do homework and it was time for lights out. It's just a fucking dick move to not leave so your roommates could sleep. And my current roommate is outraged. He says he pays for the room too and he's not going to be kicked out of his room. Fucking imbecile.
/end rant (not really. plenty more to come.)
