​A Letter to Community Bathroom Users

Hairballs, paper towels and leftover food.

​A Letter to Community Bathroom Users

After 20 minutes of tossing and turning before finally getting comfortable in your twin XXL bed you come to the tragic realization: you have to pee. You try your best to hold it, but eventually you give in. You know what this means: you have to get out of bed, put on shoes and walk all the way to the bathrooms. The walk to the bathroom now seems like a mini-marathon as you race down the hallway trying to get there before peeing your pants.

Dear Community Bathroom Users,

We’re all in the same boat. Nobody wants to share a bathroom with 30 other people, but we can all work together to make it a little more tolerable if we could all just follow a few simple steps.

First, and most importantly, clean your hair up (I beg you). I know, us girls tend to have lots of hair and sometimes it sheds, but come on. There’s nothing worse than walking into a shower stall with a huge hairball waiting for you or going to wash your face and seeing millions of stands of hair covering the counter-tops and sinks. So if we all clean up our own this problem could be easily avoided.

Next, put your paper towels and trash in the trash can-not near it. They have huge 30 gallon trashcans for a reason: so you don’t throw them all over floor. Yet somehow every day 20 wet brown paper towels magically appear and cover the ground surrounding the trash can (so close yet so far).

Also, clean the sinks out. These college bathroom sinks are not the same quality as your sinks with garbage disposals back at home. If you do dishes in there, your leftover food is going to get stuck on the drain. No matter how much you try to get it down the drain by running water, it’s not going anywhere. Take a paper towel and scoop it out and throw it out (in the trashcan). I think we can all agree the nauseating feeling when you go to brush your teeth and find a big pile of someone’s left over dinner chunks sitting in the sink.

There’s no question: community bathrooms suck and there’s not much we can do about it. So if we all work together we can make the bathrooms less disgusting!

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

As human beings, there are just some things that seem to bring us all together with the same sense of irritation. Here are a few of those annoying things that make my list. I'm sure at least some, if not most, of them make yours as well. If you can think of any more relatable annoyances that I've missed, feel free to comment on this article and let me know!

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
