People talking at 1am outside the lounge: Would it kill you to move to a space where people aren’t trying to do their homework or sleep? Or at the bare minimum, can you just talk at a normal volume level?
Library ScreamersPeople talking on the fourth floor in the library: I can’t believe you got into college when you’re not smart enough to know the basic rules of a LIBRARY. No one wants to hear about your weekend. We don’t care. Especially the white people in the Asia House library at like 12 in the morning: that’s a double homicide.

The couple lying on top of each other making out while I leave my room to refill my brita filter: yes this might be a conversation that I don’t have to write in the school’s newspaper. But then again: should I REALLY have to talk about people doing this?
People who leave empty bottles in the conservatory practice room. You might as well be pissing in those bottles if they’re all over the place.
Rich white obies who pretend to be poor. We all know you’re going to inherit a second house in Martha's vineyard so stop with the act please :)
