ARRRRRRRGH. University. I really hope it gets better as the year goes on
half my flat mates in halls are LOVELY people I enjoy spending time with (and don't feel a pressure to drink/club with!
) but the others are uh out everynight getting drunk and one plays ridiculously loud rap music out of these giant speakers
The first night I was here, the party people left this guy who'd downed a heck of a lot of vodka, unconscious in his room as they clubbed! (coming back to unconscious people, vomit, socks over smoke detectors etc is
*sigh* met some lovely people but it is just so TRYING! Can't wait for normal timetable to start...
Plus side, the guy who won't shut up with the music may feel the wrath of my clarinet or viola
(and I can practise at the same time! classical torture = win)
I'm sorry to say that from my children's experiences, this is typical student behaviour and is likely to persist on several nights a week even after the start of lectures. My daughter was driven mad in her first year because the girl who had the room next to hers was given to clubbing until 3am, when she would return home drunk and noisy, often with friends, and put on loud music. If the guy with the giant speakers persists, you could always ask to move rooms - but be careful where you move to, because it could be worse!
The up side is that next year you'll have chosen people to share a house with, which should be a lot better.
