Like I'm sorry, but unless there's a fire or you're about to burn something, there is no reason to disturb everyone with your stomping feet.

2. Burn food

3. Leave hair in the shower stall

It'll be super embarrassing!

5. Sing songs while blasting music

9. Invite 5-10 people into the room almost every single day

17. Stay in the room even though they know you have a ton of work to do

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F16%2F6359637977254071231850278605_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=446&h=20ee1143112ee62e6ada847886566dc5449aaaccc58c0c9bf28d904b541c4002&size=980x&c=3234555017 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F16%252F6359637977254071231850278605_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D446%26h%3D20ee1143112ee62e6ada847886566dc5449aaaccc58c0c9bf28d904b541c4002%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3234555017%22%7D" expand=1]It's so awkward kicking people out, but they're pretty much asking for it at this point.

18. Leave laundry in the washer/dryer longer than necessary

19. Barge into people's rooms to either ask for something, rant about their problems, or be nosy

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F16%2F635963777241025087415549558_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=810&h=a9282560d8473233d37f02776775a27d8406e5dddb6508ae9f8384ee9d3591d9&size=980x&c=644220798 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F16%252F635963777241025087415549558_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D810%26h%3Da9282560d8473233d37f02776775a27d8406e5dddb6508ae9f8384ee9d3591d9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D644220798%22%7D" expand=1]Chances are that you try to avoid these people as much as possible.

20. Smoke weed inside the residence hall

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F16%2F635963794703921758-901562962_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=508&h=b02f528e490d1d231270a3750b9c7daefebbde89852ee832ed62452016bbac03&size=980x&c=3957720748 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F16%252F635963794703921758-901562962_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D508%26h%3Db02f528e490d1d231270a3750b9c7daefebbde89852ee832ed62452016bbac03%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3957720748%22%7D" expand=1]I don't care how cold it is or how tired you are -- the smell does not need to linger in the hallway for everyone to notice.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
