Just the Tip: Construction woes and last regrets

Dear Caitríona,

I am living in New South this year and the noise from the construction is driving me up the wall. I have spoken with my RA and Community Director, but that doesn’t change the fact that I loose sleep on a daily basis because of this. Help!

Dear Sleep Deprived,

I know that the noise from the construction appears to be a no-win situation, but there is always a silver lining. For instance, you can literally talk your way out of any noise violation because it’s almost impossible to tell the difference between the sound of Skrillex blaring in your room and the sound of construction outside. So the next time you’re raging, just tell the RA you have no idea what they are talking about and to take it up with the workers outside.

Make some noise,


Dear Caitríona, 

I am a senior and I realized the ONLY THING I have done during my time at Georgetown is study and now that I’m in the home stretch I have found myself spiraling into a vortex of regret. How can I make my remaining time here meaningful?

-Forever Young

Oh Jeez. Well I would say the most important thing is that you sit down and evaluate your life. If studying is your thing that’s cool, but if you want to make your last weeks at Georgetown count its important to pinpoint what you value most about being here. Whether that be friends, faith, making an impact on others, or just having the opportunity to be young with no responsibility you should set your priorities straight before you decide on a course of action.

But no matter what, you need to go in the tunnels at least once.

Lie down forever lie down,
