1936

The building that I'm currently living in at my school was built in 1936, which essentially means that the architecture and the fixtures in the building are incredibly beautiful and old. In each of the rooms is a radiator. Yes, a real one (here's a photo).

Radiators aren't very common, so I'd never been around one or had one in my room before. I moved in when it was still fairly hot outside, but now that it's the fall and it's been getting a lot colder outside, they turned on all the radiators in the building. Now, that's all well and good, except for that fact that they turned them on in the middle of the night and that I had no idea that they made noise. So, in the middle of the night, I was woken up by what I thought was someone breaking into my room through the window! (the radiator in my room is right under my window) I jumped up out of bed and frantically tried to find something to protect myself with before approaching the window to confront my imagined burglar. After looking out my window and seeing that no one was there, I realized that the loud thumping noises were coming from my radiator! That was one of those times that I was glad I didn't have a roommate because I probably looked like a crazy person in my boyfriend's shit and a pair of shorts, with my hair messed up, wielding a medium sized flashlight.
