Off The Ledge

July 29

I finally got to use my crisis management training! Some poor girl on the second floor got dumped, and her roommate was gone for the weekend, so she knocked on my door. She was crying, talking about dropping out of school, or maybe something worse. I calmed her down, reassured her and cheered her up. She walked out of my room with her head held high and her spirits renewed.

So… I pretty much rock. I should really start a blog about my rockingness. I would call it Resident Narcissist. And it would be the best thing that’s ever happened in the history of ever. (You get that I’m kidding, right? Ugh, I am the worst narcissist ever.)

Anyone Out There?

July 21

I’ve been wondering if anyone out there is even reading this blog. If they even care that I’m trying.

I’ve been feeling very lonely. No one on the floor is talking to me after the fallout from the Common Room soccer game, and I’m just not interested in my classes.

I knocked on Quiet Guy’s door, but I couldn’t hear him moving, so I don’t think he was in there. Or he just didn’t answer. Has anyone actually spoken to him? Are we sure anyone is even in there? And alive?

I’m giving out a Get Out Of Jail Free card to the first person that notices a smell coming from his room.

P.S. Ashley! I miss you. Got your postcard from Dubai, your trip sounds amazing. Though I can’t imagine it’s better than being here. 😉

Football Bad

Soccer in the common room??? How is that a good idea? Dents in the wall, a hole in the lampshade, tables turned over… you people are terrible. It’s taken me two hours to fill out all the paperwork about your stupid idea. Can’t you be more like the Quiet Guy who never leaves his room and NEVER causes problems?

And to not even tell me you’re gonna play? I am a champion soccer player! And by that, I of course mean “I have watched David Beckham a lot”. But still!

Next time, let’s all play and then I can keep you from getting in trouble.

The Dirty Dozen

July 17

In the six weeks since the semester has started I’ve had to call maintenance to come down and fix the boy’s bathroom twice. But for the girl’s bathroom? Nine times. 9! Hair clogging drains, makeup dusting the counters, paper towels everywhere. Gross. What is going ON in there?

Is everyone getting a really messy Extreme Makeover, and I don’t know it? Cause if so, I want in!

The Shirt Stealer Strikes Again!

July 6

OK, now it’s personal! I didn’t like it when you took other peoples clothes, but MY Tremper Hoodie? You have gone too far. I will find you, Shirt Stealer. And you better not have done stuff to my sweatshirt!

Beautiful Day

July 1

This state gets a bad rap about its weather.  Yeah, it rains a lot, but when it doesn’t, it’s as beautiful here as it is anywhere.  Look at today’s sunset:

How could anyone want to be anywhere else?

For the first time in a little while, I’m truly glad I’m here.
