So, I haven't posted in a month. And tonight is as good a night as any to remedy that.

I moved from my summer dorm to my fall dorm last weekend.  Tonight will be my fourth night in my new room.  And guess what?  Since I moved in, I have woken up every morning with new fresh, itchy bug bites on my feet and ankles.  Yep.  My bed has fleas.  Or bedbugs.  But my internet research leads me to fleas.


Ugh.  I am not going to be able to sleep tonight.  Went to Home Depot and got spray, tore by bed apart but couldn't find them, doused the mattress in spray, and my mom bought me a mattress case that she'll give me when I go home this weekend.  And I'll wash all my laundry in hothothot water.  HOPEFULLY that will get rid of them.  

But the best part of this whole drama?


Seriously.  I pay an arm and a leg to live on campus, and they told me I have to have a doctor examine the bites and say that they are from fleas.  Every website I have found says that the ONLY way you can be 100% sure is if you catch a bug.  But the lack of evidence (no shed skins, no waste, etc) does not necessarily mean they're not there.  Just mean they've hidden really well.

Moral of this story: I really hate the housing department.

Oh, and just to add insult to injury, the work order that I put into maintenance on FRIDAY to get my window fixed (it won't open) still hasn't been taken care of.  So, I had to douse my room in bug spray with no ventilation.  Awesome.

Well, it's not almost 2.  Time to go to bed and give the bugs their meal.

oh housing departments never care, I've had three people burst into my room already (one had a masterkey) and so far the only thing I've been able to do is stuff things under my door to keep it from opening too much. pain in the patookus, but nothing quite as unpleasant as fleas, sheesh!

Are there other ways you can draw them out? Or maybe you can talk to the head of the department?
