21 Reasons Living In A Dorm Is The Worst/Best

Dorm life is more than one big, hormone fueled orgy of young adults

Seriously, probably about 99% of the fire alarms are because someone left their popcorn in the microwave for too long. It’s not hard to make popcorn. Stop the microwave when the popping stops, not when the smoke starts pouring out.

Another story from my freshman year: in the middle of the night, two boys on the floor stumbled into our room with a pole they stole from the construction site next to our dorm. They managed to wedge it up in the middle of our room so that we could “practice pole dancing for them.”
