My Apartment Has Paperthin Ceilings That Add to My Insomnia

I love my new place, I really do. During the day, that is. At night, my feelings shift.

Last night I couldn’t fall asleep because I kept hearing the slightest creaks, which my overactive imagination had a field day with, coming up with vivid scenes that replayed in my mind forcing out any hope for falling asleep at a decent hour.

Tonight, I was explaining to my friend from back home how I don’t like to leave my room at night because I’m not used to it yet. (The noises scare me, okay?) As soon as I IM’d her that little tidbit, I hear my name.

“Are you awakeeee?”

After a momentary freak out, I realize it’s my roommate.

“Um, yeah?”

“I can hear the person above us peeing…”

That’s disgusting, but also pretty funny.
