SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
As college students, we all probably know more than we wanted to about our neighbors. I, for example, know that each morning, my neighbor enjoys dropping her contact lenses on the floor and offering profanities about it. The website http://www.deargirlsaboveme.com/ feels my pain.
To explain itself, the site says, “Two annoying girls moved into the apartment above me. I'm forced to hear every dumb thing they say. These are my letters to them.”
And the letters are pretty great. The site starts by quoting these people, and then offering witty remarks to respond. One such example is:” Dear Girls Above Me, ‘Okay, get ready…and…PAUSE. See! It’s impossible to freeze them in an unflattering way!’ Please stop watching The Tourist.”
I mean, how accurate is that to college life? Last semester my roommate and I heard our neighbor playing a movie. We listened for a minute and…yes, it was Love Actually. We got to hear it even though we don’t own the DVD. “I hate Uncle Jamie.” Yeah, we totally listened while spacing in front of our homework.
Dear Girls Above Me is not only a great site but it’s also a great procrastination technique. It’s the new Texts from Last Night (because, that was great, but there are only so many times you can see your area code before wondering if it’s hitting a bit too close to home).
