OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY — College sophomore, Brett Kennedy, returned from class around 4:45 p.m. on Friday. As he approached his door, he heard singing and guitar playing coming from his college residency. When he opened his door, his roommate, Alex Collins, donned a look of horror, immediately stopped singing while putting down his guitar, and started flipping through television channels.
“What were you doing?” Kennedy asked. To which Collins replied, “Nothing,” while not making eye contact.
Kennedy said his class released early which is why Alex was surprised.
“I would have come home around 5:00 if my class was on its regular schedule. I guess Alex uses that time for himself.”
Kennedy said that sometimes when it’s late at night he hears Alex singing and playing guitar in his room.
“I asked him one time if he could either play softer at night, or just play during the day because I was trying to sleep, but Alex said he didn’t know what I was talking about. The next night I heard him singing and playing “Holocene” by Bon Iver, so I guess he got the message.”
