Classes are back in session, and I know I can’t sleep as much as I did before the break. I actually have to wake up before noon.

Except I don’t need to be waking up at 6 a.m. for an alarm that’s going off on your side of the room. You say it’s so you can get a workout and shower in before your 8 a.m. class, but you don’t even hear the alarm until about 6:45 a.m.

This isn’t good for my health. I only get about five hours of sleep before I’m woken up by your blaring phone and lay seething in my bed for almost an hour. My first class doesn’t start until 10 a.m., so the earliest I should be waking up is 8 a.m.

But no, your alarm is waking me up when it’s still pitch black outside. I don’t understand how you can’t hear it. It’s this constant ringing that I can’t block, even with a pillow wrapped around my head.

I can never turn it off because your phone is plugged into the wall, on the other side of your sleeping body. I’m not going to be a creepy roommate who hovers over you when you’re sleeping.

I’m just the pissed off roommate, passive-aggressively writing about it in the newspaper.

The worst part is when you finally hear the alarm, you swipe right to shut it off and then go right back to sleep. You don’t even go to the gym.
