i def lol'd @ the bold writing

it's incidents like these where i thank the heavens for having my good friends as roommates.

you & him need to sit down for a good ol' heart-to-heart; forge some sort of compromise. otherwise, it's time to part ways.

Contact the school. Even if he's friends with the RA, that does not give him permission to act this way. As someone posted earlier, it's better to get the situation dealt with ASAP or you'll just have more trouble coming your way. And from what I've read on your post, your policy on "no confrontation" isn't getting you anywhere. If you don't want to get the school involved, at least do this. Politely ask him to sit down with you for a few minutes and calmly express your feelings. Tell him what you're not comfortable with and try to reach a consensus; make sure that he understands the seriousness of this issue. There's only so much tolerance a person can take. If he's exactly the kind of douche-bag you thought he was after this, THEN you must contact the school.


If they start with any sexy times or if they keep fighting regularly I am going to kick her out and presumably he will follow.



Luckily, I never had a bad experience with roommates. Freshmen year, the one I had was pretty chill. We didn't talk much since our personalities didn't match but we managed to get along. This year, I'm rooming with three of my best friends from freshmen year and will be doing the same for junior year <3 Hope things work out with you the way they have for me.


Yeah my freshman roommate was really chill too, we just never became friends. I would have roomed with him again but we would have had to sign up to specifically room together and we missed the deadline. I'm actually planning on getting an apartment by myself for the next few years since it would possibly be cheaper than living in the dorm and I wouldn't have to deal with any of this nonsense.

We had a fruit fly infestation and put out apple cider vinegar traps (worked like a charm) to clear them up,

Wtf apple cider vinegar is like liquid duct tape, you can fix anything with it. My mom always made me drink it when I got sick


(Really, when you put stuff on top of the trashcan and it falls on the floor that doesn't mean keep putting stuff in until someone takes out the trash. Just take out the trash. Sheesh.)


Here is my freaking recycling bin. I left it like this before I left for spring break because I left before him and I assumed he would empty them for once. I just emptied the trash today -_-

I was lucky. All of people on my FLOOR were gamers. Even the girls....all 5 of them lol. Best experience of my life and the coolest people I've ever met. Well there was one chick who was shit. She chased out 4 roommates in 1 month. True story.

When we were out of the dorms we shared an apartment. Yeah we had the girlfriend sleeping over problem but we usually called each other out on any bs. Outside of that there were nitpicking stuff. I hated doing dishes so I traded to scrub the toilet. To me doing dishes is a bane on all existence. Cleaning the shit out of the toilet is less gross. Don't ask me, all I know is that I break dishes in fury when I even look at them in the sink.

I was pretty active in my dorm days and did see a lot of shit:

1) The open door problem -

The room next to us used to leave their door open. One night around 4am a drunk girl went in, popped a squat, pissed on the chair and passed out right there. My friend woke up almost towards the end of her doing it and fucking pushed her out of the room. This is an awesome idea for fucking with your roommate about leaving the damn door open. I would pay someone to do it to his stuff after you left for class.

2) Shitty roommate -

I've seen 2 people who had REALLY shitty roommates. One of my friends had a rednecky dick who was addicted to battlefield or some such shooter. All he did was play the game and practice his "French" while playing. He used to hang up curtains just to separate himself from my roommate and anyone else for that matter. We ended up breaking his stuff before the end of freshman year since we were heading out first (there were other things that led to this). Another one of my friends had a roommate who would just fucking eat anything that was lying around. You could be in the middle of a Mister Softee ice-cream cone and he would ask if he could have the rest. Like, seriously bro, fuck off.

For the most part though you should probably just report it to housing.

College is time for change though so maybe it's time to stop being non-confrontational. Everything you do after college, career-wise, will always require forward thinking which will lead to confrontations. It becomes harder to meet people after college, depending on your situation so you have to be a bit forward with yourself then too.

I used to be like that. My very first time on campus there was this black girl in my program. But she was real ghetto, inner city, never heard of soap kind of person. She had a thing for me apparently and one time after a party, she was all sweaty and disgusting and I guess she thought it would be OK to wrap herself in my sheets and blankets as a surprise for me.

Yeah it was surprising alright. Me and my friends had her stripped of her scholarship and kicked out of the college. Or at least for that year. I kid you not. We exorcised the blankets, washed them dozens of times and so much more before we deemed it safe to use again. I spent tens of dollars maybe hundreds having it washed, rewashed, dry cleaned, using holy water on it, everything. I was pissed. It's safe to use now I think though.

It was a very important first lesson for college. Not sure what it taught me lol but I sure as hell started having stronger opinions and reactions to people than before.

Going back to me being active might actually be helpful to you too. It pays to have other places to go on campus. I used to crash at my friends rooms or apartments if I had to (every roommate has to be given there own bit of sexy time).

It was good having a mix of people that could help me out. I had my members from the Caribbean Students Association(CSA), a fraternity that I strung along because I liked their benefits but would never join lol, people from different majors especially the arts because they tend to pull all-nighters so they don't mind company or someone crashing. I knew people from when I was in the Billiards club, the Friday Dodgeball group that me and my floor always went and played with, and then just the random activities that go on around campus.

I would go on but everyday was an experience for me. For better or worse. All things considered, I'm still friends with most of the people I met while dorming. Then again I'm still friends with my friend from the start of high school.

Well I hope it's not too much considering I didn't even describe the roommates I had. Thanks for reading or glancing at either way

I go home on the weekends since I live about 30 minutes from campus. Just enough of a drive to prevent me from being a commuter student.

Living in dorms sucks, but on a brighter note, you probably have 2 more months or less to deal with that. I had a suicidal dormmate my first year in college. He attempted cutting himself early in the year and then jumping off the building in the second semester because of house and girlfriend issues. Having to stop that mess was not fun. Anyways, enjoy the college life, it goes by fast.

I lived in a student apartment accommodation for my first quarter so my experience wasn't as bad concerning privacy. I had the misfortune of sharing the apartment with two suite mates. They had always left the suite common area and kitchen a sty, and there was the ear-bleeding loud animal cacophony of courtship that emanated from the paper thin walls. Dorms and unattended adults, what can you do about it?

Whatever you do don't threaten either of them. I had a friend at NAU with almost the same situation as you and he finally snapped and threatened to kill them both if they did not fix the issues and he was the one that got kicked out of the room.

If the RA wont play ball, then go above the RA, do something about it before it ruins your school life.
