Becoming a Vampire Weekend fan is so dangerous like one minute you’re just like “ah yes I really do think I want to wear this button up shirt under my sweater that seems like a swell thing to do” and then suddenly you’re leaning against the ottoman couch in your bedroom listening to fucking Pizza Party by L’Homme Run and crying about Ezra Koenig singing in French
Pros and cons of living in Reid? Is there anything special you recommend we pack specifically for Reid dorms (other than the obvious fan)?
Closet space, so much of it.
The walls aren’t as thin as the walls in Brookes and Hewitt.
The Reid bathrooms were recently renovated and are pretty nice.
The water fountains are in Reid, so you don’t have to go very far to fill up your water bottle or get a drink.
I mean it’s the quad, so no real or functional common or cooking spaces, but even less so in Reid. Sulz is at least close to the common room and Brookes has little alcoves for chillin in.
Broadway is noisy af.
The Sulz/Reid RAs have like twice the number of residents to deal with than the Brookes and Sulz RAs, so good luck getting to know your RA. Barnard RAs are typically very sweet and you’ll want to get to know them.
Wall decorations or Christmas lights or something—Reid is old, is not painted a very nice color, and feels gloomy until you decorate.
Other lighting sources, such as lamps or Christmas lights. The lights in Reid are fluorescent and hurt my eyes.
I also recommend a reading pillow or another big pillow you can use to prop yourself up with. The only chair that fits is the one they provide and it’s pretty uncomfortable, so you’ll want a place to sit.
Other standard stuff: a water boiler, a mini-fridge, etc.
Um, I'm a good man (or at least I try to be) and I'm 29. Most of the men I know are generally good people. Why the hate? You don't even KNOW me. And are you telling me that girls are faultless perfect angels, especially at that very age? Because I do know a lot of them, and though they are generally good people, they're far from perfect.
If you feel wildly insulted by the assertion that a large portion of your demographic sucks, then you probably are not as good of a man as you think you are.
Like I said, in my experiences. I’m not gonna post specifics, but I genuinely haven’t met a guy under 30 who hasn’t fit the two criteria (was either a terrible person or was extremely immature).
Gtfo, this is an advice blog for freshmen preparing to go to a women’s college next month and prospective students who are applying to that college. Not for older men who feel the need to defend their fragile egos.
