HELP TOO SCARED TO TALK TO ROOMMATE ABOUT SOMETHING

Over the weekend my roommates sister came up and they were out kinda late and the original plan was that her sister was gonna drive back home after they were done but she decided it was too late to drive back and that she needed to stay in our dorm. I really didn't care that much but I was about to go to sleep so after my roommate told me the plan, I just told her to be quiet and to not turn lights on because I would be sleeping. I was almost asleep when I heard them open the door and they were whispering but I could still hear them so I became wide awake again. I thought they would just go to sleep since it was late but after they came in someone turned a light on which made it harder for me to go back to sleep. After this they continued whispering and giggling which kept me up. Sometimes they wouldn't whisper and just talk in their normal voices so I they kept me up until they went to sleep. I'm so afraid to bring it up but I feel like I need to because it wasn't cool but I am so nervous about it. Does anyone have any advice??? My roommate is also very nice and I just don't want to make her mad at me. ANY ADVICE IS APPRECIATED THANK YOU

    She might not have realized that she was disturbing you since you didn't say anything. She may have assumed you are a deep sleeper. I would pick a nice, quiet time when things are relaxed and pleasant and just say something like, I am sure that you and your sister didn't realize it but your talking and whispering woke me up. If she comes up again, I would really be grateful if you didn't make as much noise.

    If this has only happened once, I would let it go. If it happens again. speak up while it is happening. they probably thought you were asleep.

    It doesn't seem as if this is going to be an ongoing problem. I can't see being kept up ONE night as an issue worth straining your relationship for.

    This is called being a roommate. You might interfere with your roommate's sleep someday. It is doesn't happen very often I let it go as well.
