    Huh? (Commuter student here who is out of touch)

    This reminds me of the one kid on the NYU '19 FB page. =)) I hope his housing rant winds up on tumblr. It's AMAZING.

    But I'm sure things will work out, friend. Just be patient and try to enjoy the rest of your summer.

    @rav199 @lcsmith What did he say?
  • rav199rav199 Registered User Posts: 16 New Member
    @topimpabutterfly @lcsmith I have no idea how to add photos, so I'll just copy and paste what he said. Along with some... censorship.

    ".................hOW DID THIS HAPPEN!!!!!! I PAID MY DEPOSITS, I BOUGHT MY NYU T SHIRT, GLOATED TO EVERYONE I KNOW, AND NOW WHAT. NOW ITS 50% OF THE WAY THROUGH MY LAST SUMMER OF FREEDOM, BUT IM NOT FREE BECAUSE NYU HOUSING STILL HAS ME SHACKLED DOWN IN THE GALLOWS OF HOUSING ANXIETY. HOW IT SO DIFFICULT TO ASSIGN HOUSING. HERE RILEY SUGGESTION:
    1) PRINT OUT FLOOR PLANS OF EVERY FLOOR OF EVERY HALL.
    2) GATHER 5000 PEBBLES
    3) LABEL THE PEBBLES. 1 PEBBLE = 1 FROSH
    4) SCATTER THE PEBBLES AROUND LIKE CHICKEN FEED AND WHICHEVER ROOM THEY LAND ON BOOM THATS THE ROOM. NOT FIRST PREFERENCE? HAHA **** FIRST PREFERENCE LOSERS YOULL GET OVER IT.

    IM SO MAD IVE ALREADY BROKEN EIGHT SEPARATE SHEETS OF DRYWALL WITH MY 4HEAD. MY PARENTS ARE UPSET, THEY ARE SAYING THINGS LIKE: MAYBE NEW YORK ISNT RIGHT FOR YOU, MAYBE YOU SHOULD STAY HOME AND CALM DO--**** HOME. IM TAKING THE FAMILY FRIDGE AND SETTING IT NEXT TO HAYDEN, IM GONNA SAW A BREATH HOLE, HOLLOW THE ***** OUT AND LIVE IN THERE FOR THE YEAR, **** A FIRST YEAR RESIDENTIAL EXPERIENCE. IF ANYONE QUESTIONS THE FRIDGEHOME, I WILL THWOMP THEM ON THE NOGGIN. EVEN IF ITS NYPD, I DONT CARE I HOPE THEY ARREST ME AND TAKE ME TO JAIL, THEN ILL FINALLY HAVE A ROOM.

    **** NYU HOUSING."

    ah freshmen

    @rav199 Wait so what's the kid's gripe?
  • somebody2015somebody2015 Registered User Posts: 78 Junior Member
    Did they underestimate housing slots or overfill some dorms? Is there an e-mail someone could copy/paste here discussing the issue? (Just a curious commuter student wondering what's going on)
