Leaving my cozy bedroom at home and moving into an unfamiliar, barren dorm room was quite an adjustment. Dorm life is far from paradise and the thought of being constantly surrounded by 15 other girls was terrifying. After surviving a little over a semester in an 11x18 room with another person, I can definitely say that you should never live with your friends.
Never live with your friends if you hate always having someone to watch movies with after class when you don’t feel like doing your homework.
Never live with your friends if having a go-to group for breakfast, lunch, and dinner isn’t your forte. If you hate having people who love to sit and chat while consuming semi-edible food, then you definitely shouldn’t live with your friends because they’ll always knock on your door before making any eating arrangements.
Never live with your friends if you hate laughing at hours when you should be sleeping or if you can’t stand people sharing the music that they love with you on a daily basis.
Never live with your friends if you don’t want to be surrounded by people who will never say no when you ask them to help you watch the final episode of a show that you’ve been emotionally attached to on Netflix.
Never live with your friends if the thought of having people to motivate you or study with freaks you out. Don’t try living with your friends if you love going to sporting events by yourself or if you hate having someone to eat a late night snack with.
Never live with your friends if sitting on your floor in your pajamas and talking about your day sounds awful to you.
Never live with your friends if you hate having somebody to cheer you up when you get homesick.
Never live with your friends if brushing your teeth next to a familiar face every day while dancing along to someone else’s shower music doesn’t appeal to you.
Never live with your friends if you want time to go slower or if you don’t want all of your days to fly by.
Never ever think about living with your friends if you don’t want to wake up every morning to people who make you happy and who let you love the present moment with everything you have.
