Re: [CHAT] Living with others

Tip:
-Be prepared for anything!
-Brush up on your negotiation skills.
-Set your boundaries.
-Find out how the cleaning is done in the house, how the bills are split, whether the house does combined groceries or not. And how they go about communal items such as dish washing liquid, toilet paper, cleaning agents.

Sus out food allergies or any allergies for that matter.

Treat your housemates how you would like to be treated.

Also, keep your alcohol in your room. It will start disappearing otherwise.

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Stick to your guns about your morals. You have a right to be respected and not made fun of. There will probably be peer pressure.

Having said that, I do let things slide as it is just not worth the argument and doesn't effect me that much. Mainly stuff that I can just brush off my shoulders.

@ruenhonx
It depends who you live with - some people are happy to share the big things but get cranky about lil things! But i think as long as you are mindful of whose things are whose it should be ok

Re: [CHAT] Living with others

@stonepixie

also be ok with spending time in your room! haha .
Learning that not everyone likes to chat after their day is important haha

Re: [CHAT] Living with others

@EloiseRose yep that's me, I like to have my space after a long day so I'm sure other people feel the same.

Re: [CHAT] Living with others

Don't want to be responsible for someones hospital visit @ruenhonx

That is usually one of the first things I ask when someone moves in. "Do you have any allergies that I should know about?"

Most people are shocked that I ask that as I am the first person to ever ask them, but better safe than sorry.

I've got 4 and a half years experience with living in shared accommodation, so you want to hope that I have some good points. Cat LOL Cat Tongue Cat Very Happy

Re: [CHAT] Living with others

@stonepixie so true! I am highly allergic to seafood and the first night my girlfriend and I moved in together we had her family over for pizza. Didn't realize one of the pizzas had prawns on it until somebody yelled out when I was about to eat.

that was a bit irrelavant but yeah...
