Summer time and the living is… NOISY

I arrived home today to find a large number of students sitting on the grass area outside my block chatting, drinking and listening to music very loudly. It would seem that not only does the summer time bring on easy living for some students, but also noisy living. What they clearly don’t consider is that some students when they come home from a 9am – 7pm revision stint, still have work to do and may have exams soon enough so as not to permit being disturbed by such activity, let alone partaking in it. Is there no consideration? Surely students must accept that others have to study, after all didn’t they have said work/exams all but 5 minutes ago? *sigh* I guess I’m going to have to invest in a camp bed and find a secluded spot in the library, although the 24 hour computer lab might be a better bet; can’t be missing out on my internet fix now can I 🙂

    It’s a sorry state of affairs…Oh the yoof of today 😆

    That is probably one of the worst things I found when coming back to Uni – the noise. Some people in my digs just had no consideration for others and would have loud music into the wee hours on a regular basis, keeping me (and probably the neighbours) awake. The house across the road was just the same…not to mention some twit burning toast at 3am and setting the fire alarm off every-so-often.

    I really sympathise with you here, Kieran…perhaps you could nick some sound proofing? 🙂

    The fire alarm; yeah, hasn’t happened in a while, but I know just what you mean. Although, having said that it probably will happen at four in the morning now.

    Sound proofing, yeah, now that’s a sound idea 😉

    It seems you weren’t far off with your prediction about the fire alarm 🙁
