Dah, dee dah...

My roommate is, it seems, very devious. We have to fill out this roommate contract where each of us specifies what we'd prefer in certain fields - stuff like what time is it okay to make noise until.
She didn't just *say* it to my face, which is what really pisses me off. But she wrote on the contract "no typing after midnight, weekdays".
SHIT. Is she *kidding* me?
No typing after midnght weekdays? That's when I write the most, when I talk to online people the most. It's not my fault that her keyboard doesn't make *any* noise, or that she's dependant on regular sleeping hours. Hah. And what about papers? Frell; I don't think I've *ever* written an essay that didn't end up around three AM. And I'll be damned if I'm going to change my working or sleeping habits for *her* benefit.
My solution? I think I'm going to change residences. Ian is moving to Mount, which is the house where most of my friends live, anyway, and there are still empty single rooms in their hall.
Oh, for my own room again... And a weekend without drunken idiocy...
*stares off into space and smiles*
Off to the planning. And the plotting. :)

I think your being a little bit unreasonable. Keyboards have a habit of keeping people up at night and it can be VERY annoying for someone who is trying to sleep. She isn't making a very far out request, if you think about it with an open mind.

Re: Ummm...
It has nothing to do with having an open mind. Absolutely nothing. I would have no problem if she wanted to type after midnight. It wouldn't keep *me* up. Anyway - first-year is *supposed* to include a study in sleep deprevation.;)

I don't complain when she plays New Kids on the Block at the top of her speakers, or when she stumbles in here drunk at two AM on weekends trailing half a dozen people, and smelling like icky 'Merkin beer. Bite me, Kimry. It's not like I'm fighting with her. I'm removing myself from the situation before I *start* yelling at her. I haven't had a roommate since I was seven years old - and I also value my privacy too much to re-adapt to it. Plus, I can't *not* type after midnight - unless you guys back there don't want to hear from me at all. o.O
That's when I *do* that. After midnight. When it's, like, eight PM, my brain-time.

If you say "I told you so," I swear I'll smack you. =)
