I have no idea if I've done a rant journal before, none that I can remember, but now will be a mighty fine time to start methinks
Nobody's up to rant to so have fun everyone!
So I've been back at college for less than a day now and already I know I CANNOT STAY HERE. For the past two years at college I've lived in one of the nicer blocks, with my own ensuite and good internet and a nice view and quiet neighbours. My room was dysfunctional af, everything was breaking constantly from the toilet to the lights to the door but I loved it.
Due to being poor, I've had to move to one of the less expensive blocks this year. I don't have my own ensuite anymore, it's a shared bathroom, but I thought I could live with that. Except SOMEHOW I got moved to the worst possible room in history.
I'm RIGHT OVER the road. Right above it! The CLOSEST ROOM. And it's a road right next to the university too so it's pretty damn BUSY. Now back where I live at home, it's so remote we're lucky if we get one car come past every day. So I'm not really used to noise, and here, it's CONSTANT NOISE.
Buses come past several times a minute, right under my window, and even if I close my window it sounds like they're in my room! I have not the slightest idea how I'm going to study, let alone get some sleep. Last night I had to sleep in the heat with my window closed and my fan OFF because it makes a weird ticking noise when it spins.
There are also some girls down the hall. Loud ones. Who have no concept of 'indoor voices' and like to play loud music with their doors open, because they're "social". It doesn't help that the walls in these blocks are paper thin and I can hear every word they're saying.
Yesterday I spent the entire five-hour car trip down with severe anxiety with makes me throw up, so you can imagine what a fun time that was. I also didn't eat anything at all. So obviously I wanted an early bed. I went to bed at 10pm. I did not go to SLEEP til midnight, because buses run until midnight, and so do the girls down the hall. Buses start up again at 5am. So I've been up since 5am. Totally furious the entire time.
Now after having to buy a powerboard and extension cord simply so I could get my computer's charger from the powerpoint to the desk, I also found out this morning that the LAN cable doesn't reach either, so I have to rely on the WiFi. Which SUCKS. It's fast but it drops out more often than my home internet (which is saying something!). Not only this but my desk is barely big enough for my computer, let alone my computer and my tablet, so I have no clue how I'm going to draw.
So not only do I have a terrible room, but my only friends here have also moved out, so I'm alone, I'm emotionally unstable, AND I'm in a terrible room. THIS YEAR IS GONNA BE FUN.
