Collegiette: Hey Mom/BFF/Dad/Sister, got a second?
Mom/BFF/Dad/Sister: Yeah, a minute. What’s up?
Collegiette: Can I please just whine for a minute about - -
Mom/BFF/Dad/Sister: No, talk to you later. Bye.
Sound familiar? We all have our #collegietteproblems that we need to vent about, but sometimes those on the other end get sick of hearing us complain about that girl in the salad line who is still debating chicken vs. tofu when she’s first in line of 50 or that guy in our Chem class who asks questions when class is over. Hello — I have places to be!
Luckily, you can give your loved ones a break and now complain to Her Campus. Let us know what’s irking you every week by dropping us an anonymous whine — just submit via the form at the end of the article or tweet them in to @HerCampus using the hashtag #collegietteproblems. Trust us, you’ll feel better.
I love how my floormates all hang out together and tell me I should join them sometime, then they make plans without me and act like it was an on the spot decision. They also apparently never have homework because all I ever hear outside my dorm is them running and yelling up and down the hallway all day and night. Seriously guys?! Do something else with your time!

Can the girls in my dorm seriously stop bringing back random men and “sleeping with them” in the shower?

Why must the lawn guys cut the grass at 7 am every other day! Please. I just want to sleep and it's hard enough with my roommate snoring and talking in her sleep.

I know you all like to hang out in the hallway since it's a good common area. But at a quarter to 2 in the morning is not the time to be blaring your music. Don't get bitchy when I ask nicely to go to sleep. I have an 8:30 class. Just go hang out in someone's room and not outside my door.

Would it kill you to provide showers that have enough water pressure for a girl to actually rinse her hair? It takes 5 minutes to get all the shampoo and conditioner out of my hair, and my hair isn't even particularly long or thick! I have to stand still for ages to get my body wash rinsed off. This is not ok!

I accepted a long time ago that I wouldn't be able to study in my room. I'm right beside the pub so it's always loud in the evenings. However, I'd love to be able to sleep after midnight without being disturbed on a Wednesday night. Last night, a bunch of girls on my floor came home super drunk and screaming their heads off at 1AM. It woke me up, and I had an 8:30 class this morning to get up for. Where was the RA?!

I knew going in that my dorm was all about partying. But seriously? We've had nights where the two main elevators are filled with puke, and the culprit puked on my floor in front of the elevator bank (as well as on the first floor). People have peed in the back elevator and in the stairwell. CAN WE PLEASE KEEP IT TOGETHER?

Anytime I try to tell a story to my roommates, one of two things happens. Either my one roommate interrupts and keeps talking louder so she can take over with her story that she makes relate to mine, or she tells me to be quiet because she wants to listen to a song on the radio or study. Except the thing is, she is always interrupting me when I'm doing homework or watching TV. For some reason this respect only goes one way, and it's pissing me off! Apparently my stories don't matter... so I guess I'll stop telling them. Thanks girl, really glad we're best friends.
