5 Of The Worst Things About Living In A Dorm

Have you ever wanted to go to bed early?

After 3 years, I can definitely tell you that there are some pretty annoying things that happen when you live in a dorm.

1. You barely know who you live with

Freshman year, you get this idea that your roommates are going to become your best friends. By year 3, you've already established who your friends are and so you barely get to know your roommates.

2. The noise

Have you ever wanted to go to bed early?

Like around 9 or 10 o'clock?

Don't even bother trying because at most dorms there is so much noise that even if you do get to sleep — you'll be awake in a few hours from either the sound of a group of people loudly talking outside your window or your roommate talking on the phone because the walls are paper thin.

3. Roommate agreements

Roommate agreements get old fast. Year one, you really think and contemplate your answers. Year three, just don't disrespect me and we will be cool.

4. Fire safety meeting/drill

This is another one that gets old fast. Fire safety meetings are the exact same every year. We get it, don't smoke or light candles in the dorms.

5. The air conditioning 

I have never lived in a dorm that had an air conditioning that worked well 100 percent of the time. In South Carolina, it is hot for most of the year and when a dorm air conditioning is set on 60, you'd be lucky if the room temperature gets down to 80.

Even though this might seem like a lot to hate about the dorms, I actually really like living in them. They definitely have pros and cons, but I guess you can gauge my overall opinion from the fact that I still live in them.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
