OMG: UWP's walls are paper thin. Roommate invites boyfriend to stay overnight. They stay up late and I can hear his voice grumble through the wall. Terms almost over, might as well tough it out within reasonable limits.

  1. Step 1) Purchase fan
    Step 2) Leave fan running next to head at night
    Step 3) Never be kept up by annoying noises again
    [Optional step 4 for koreans only] Somehow suffocate because of the fan

    4. 1c, believed. It's not "known" because it's physically impossible. Ergo, pure superstition.

    5. Step 4 is tricky because if you are Korean then your roommate is likely Korean in which case "grumbling" means loud sex with her boyfriend that can't be covered up by the noise of a fan.

  2. Same! I'm in UWP as well. It's annoying as heck but hey, like you said, term's almost over. I like to play (though not blast, not at night) heavy metal to tune them out and attempt to get them to shut up, haha.

  3. Take a dump in the bottom of their wastepaper basket and cover it with a sheet of paper. Voila, no more stayovers.

  4. Step 1: Order strippers
    Step 2: ANGRY VIOLENT SEX
    Step 3: Roommates either ask to join in or get your point.

  5. First-person essays span area, time and subject: town dump, a frenzied bird, or a toy from the 60s--all subjects of essays I've published--are only 1 shuffle of associate endless deck of compelling themes. Mongrel heap or not, it's ne'er the topic of associate essay writer australia that tells, however the fashion and stance of its author--what may appear the smallest amount probably of essay subjects will be created a piquant page-turner by a writer's winning hand. We'll look here at selecting the subject, slant and voice of your essay, constructing a lead, building associate essay's rhythm and packing a punch at essay's finish.
