3. Now that you're a real-life RA, you'll have to start planning tons of events for ungrateful freshmen who never show up.

4. Instead of coming to your super-exciting events, your residents will be trying to throw dorm parties right under your nose.

5. Instead of joining them, your shiny new title forces you to have to catch them in the act.

6. And busting people won't do anything positive for your reputation.

7. Suddenly you're the bad guy!

11. You'll have to get up at all hours of the night to let in anyone who's forgotten their keys.

12. And if there are ever any dorm disputes, you're automatically the mediator.
