Sometimes, I am confused whether I live with my husband and two children or a college dormitory.  More often then not I have flashbacks to being 18 and confused by the odors/noises/objects found the common areas.  Do people really live like this?  Why, yes, yes they do.  Little did I know how it would prepare me for parenthood.  So, thank you, Avila, for the mandatory dorm requirement for freshman.


Here are such flashbacks:
  • There is always that one girl babbling incessantly. 
  • You find half eaten food behind the couch pillows, and when you point it out, someone eats it.
  • Your friends don't take "NO" for an answer.
  • There are plastic cups strewn about the room.  All are half full.
  • Your roomies wake you up for a midnight snack run.
  • There is someone walking down the hall with little or no clothes on and they don't seem to care.
  • No one wants to go to bed.
  • There's that stinky guy who always wants to hang out with you.
  • You never know when the next fight will break out.
  • Every piece of furniture has a stain on it, 90% probably contain DNA

Anyone else have anything to add?

And there is that one person who finds the food provided for them inedible, so demands mac and cheese instead?

Ha. I was the one eating mac and cheese in college. Now, my kids refuse it. Its PBJ exclusively.
