Okay, so I just moved into an on campus suite with three other roommates. I get along with all of them pretty well. The third one is cool, but kind of a pain. I keep waking up at 3am to loud talking, no alcohol or partying, literally just talking every other weeknight. I go out there and be like, "Hey, would you guys chill a little bit? Kinda' late," really nicely, then they apologize profusely, quiet down, then gradually get louder again. Whatever, a loud fan fixes that. So now I've been dealing with a sink full of dishes full of rotting food. Again, I mention it, and I get apologies and no solutions. There's a bunch of other annoying little crap that by themselves aren't so bad.
Lately, I've been opening up the fridge to have it overflowing with beer. (Sounds awesome, right?) Occasionally there's empty cans all over the counter. The only problem is that this is a dry campus, and the gestapo who work for the university have a tendency to come in for whatever random reason. If they catch alcohol in the shared suite, I get a school record. That's usually not a big deal, but I work my ass off studying all day every day so I can go to a top law school. Something like that is pretty likely to screw that up. I have no problem with drinking. It ****es me off that we can't drink at the age of 21, but it is what it is.
This is all the same one out of four roommates, by the way. How do I deal with this?
