We all want to enjoy ourselves on the weekends and sometimes even during the week. We deserve it, right? Classes, exams and work are a pain to even the most hardworking student. So it’s only fair to have a get together with a few friends and celebrate....
To be clear, having a party IS nice, just not EVERY SINGLE DAY. Though the stereotype of “going to college means you get to party all the time” is false, there are a select few people who attempt to live up to it. The blaring music can constantly get on your nerves and disturb your studying time or even sleeping hours. “Quiet hours” is a term not even in their vocabulary.
As if trying to block out the noise isn’t bad enough, you have to watch the wasted people stumbling home from the keg party. So wasted that someone could probably get drunk just by touching them. The “I’m drunk out of my mind” person is so out of it that they leave a little gift on your doorstep. It is a warm feeling to wake up with a few red Solo cups on the lawn or puke in front of your house, but it’s really exciting to spend a few minutes of your day cleaning up after drunken idiots.
What can you do about it when your neighbor acts like the guy from “Animal House”? Reporting them doesn’t help unless you are looking forward to them making your life a living hell (if they don’t learn their lesson) until you move out or the year ends. That can be a pretty long wait. Going to them may not solve anything if it goes in one ear and out the other and it would just be a waste of breath. Obviously ignoring doesn’t solve anything, does it? All of these lost causes can drive a person to crash at their friends’ house, which in turn can eventually annoy willing hosts.
Here are a few notes to the people guilty of partying to celebrate any occasion they can think up (such as it being Wednesday): Cut it out. People are trying to study or even sleep during your all-night parties. Clean up after yourselves. This is college; mom is not here to clean and neither are your neighbors. Take your neighbors feelings into consideration. If that’s too much to handle, move your freaking party somewhere else!
