Rules, rules rules

It's been so long since I've been in a dorm that I completely forgot about the insane amount of rules they've got going on here. Unbelievable! I went out with a couple of friends last night who both live way out in the suburbs, and since we were all not what you could call sober and it was 2:30 in the morning, we decided that they would come over and sleep on my floor. But when we got to the dorm, I found out that not only am I not allowed to sign anyone in after midnight, but I can only have 1 person in my room at a time, and there's not really any getting around this as you have to have the front desk buzz you through the turnstiles to even get into the building. Seriously? I'm 24 years old and I can't have a couple of friends come over to chat and then sleep on the floor? Seriously? So then they had to turn around and take the hour long 4-bus commute to get back home in the middle of the night. That really sucks. Ugh, I'm annoyed.

Which building did you say you were in? International?

My 'Lodge' within Ifor Evans only has a manual lock to the building and a security guard behind it. No buzzing or turnstile.

They have all the similar rules here, for sure. But not that many enforcement hardware so far. (The thing is, I haven't got a situation to break one in the first place! How uneventful...)

Haha, what can I say, I'm just a wild child rule-breaker all over. :) And yeah, I'm in International...I think the heavy rule enforcement here is due to the fact that about 90% of the people in the building are freshers...gotta love living with the teeny-boppers. :)
