Creaky Floorboards 

 I like my room. It’s big, I have a walk in closet, it has three windows, and there is enough space to do all kinds of activities. But it has creaky floorboards. And I have downstairs neighbors. So sometimes I feel bad when I walk around. And I have to remind myself that I shouldn’t have to feel bad about walking around in my room. After all, it’s my fucking room. I can walk around if I want to. I still try to be courteous though. I kind of know the spots on the floor that creak and I try to avoid stepping on them. I also try to take off my shoes when I come home and walk softly. But there’s no stopping creaky floorboards, they’re going to creak. That’s what they do. They are fucking creaky floorboards. You just gotta deal with it and hope that your downstairs neighbors can too. They can always retaliate with thumping the ceiling with a broomstick if need be. Don’t feel too bad.  Critically Rated at 7/17

New Neighbors

My downstairs neighbors moved out a while ago and their apartment was unoccupied for months. We got used to the silence and the extra garage space. But our landlord finally got his shit together, and the new neighbors moved in yesterday. New neighbors are always interesting because they shake things up a bit. A neighbor can be your best friend or your worst enemy. A good neighbor can make a shitty place seem better. A bad neighbor can turn your dream home into a nightmare. So it’s important to talk to your new neighbors and get a feel for their personalities. You learn their names and what they do for a living and what they do for fun. You’re going to see them all the time so it’s better if you get along (or at least pretend like you do). Our new neighbors seem pretty chill, even though I’ve only talked to them for a minute. They have a cool dog, that’s always a plus. And they haven’t told us to keep the noise down yet. So far, so good. New neighbors, welcome home.
