9PM is not dinner time. Not for people who keep normal sleeping and waking hours, at least; not for people who have obligations and full-time jobs and support themselves. People who have jobs they have to be at in the morning have to go to sleep and 9PM is “getting ready for bed” time. Or getting close.
That said, I know that you do not have the same obligations I, and the rest of our apartment, have. You have a super part-time job and ONE class, ONE night a week. I get it — you are still in school and your parents pay for you to live here, and so on.
So if you have so much free time, can you do a little more around the house? I hear you talking about how you went into the city for a little while early today; you have your nerdy, asocial boyfriend over all of the time; you spend your morning sleeping until 11AM.
Would it kill you to wake up a little earlier and…take out the trash/recycling? Maybe put away the dishes that have been drying in the drain for three days? Knowing that when the rest of us come home from work, the last thing we want to do is more work? Not to say that we never do work around house because we have jobs — but if there are things that can clearly be done and you have the time, it would be nice to see you pull your own (excessive) weight.
Every time I have a day off, I spend it vacuuming, spraying down surfaces, dusting, etc. Could you do that once in a while, too? And you don’t have to sound like you wish you would rather be dead, when I try to make conversation with you.
That is all.
