I, like many on campus, are new timers to the residential hall experience. And to put it frankly, the last time I slept on a bunk bed I was 10 years old. A lot has changed in these 8 wonderful years, most notably, my height. Within the past couple days of my new college experience, I have managed to crack my forehead against the boards underneath my loft a dozen times almost to the point of tears. Not only being below the loft is a problem, but above. Like many victims of allergies, I am prone to being a bit sniffly in the middle of the night. Kleenex box at the ready, I sit up in bed, and what do you know, I clap my head against the ceiling with such a force that I actually wake up my roommate. Since these incidents, I have noticed I felt a strain on my neck as I involuntarily cower whenever I am around my loft.
Hit a tuning fork and the dog will salivate.
Place a student underneath a loft and he/she will cringe.
