Apartment living is one of those experiences that few people aspire to, but most are forced into experiencing at some point in their lives. "Living around other people is hard," say duh experts. You often have to listen to a stranger's footsteps, fights, music etc., and, occasionally you have to confront them about those things so that you can live in relative comfort. These confrontations can be awkward — how do you manage to come off as a polite, relaxed, yet assertive person when knocking on a neighbor's door to ask them to quiet the fuck down? One solution? Be an adult, suck it up and do it.
