The Fray

So I usually don't use my blog for this sort of thing, but there's something happening in my life at this moment and I just need to tell someone:

It's 11:23 PM and there are people on the roof over from mine playing "How To Save a Life" by the Fray at such a loud volume that it sounds like they are in my apartment. I am filled with hatred.


  1. so you are living here this summer? What's the story teicher?

  2. That's apartment living for you..albeit with a twist. Normally, it's the apartment dwellers inside your building who produce the racket and THAT you have yet to experience -- so consider yourself lucky! ~mlk

    By the way, anyone else notice the irony here?
