Surely many close friends have intended to invite each other to “go to the same house” when going to the city to study. Many fantasies of fun and happiness, going to school together, volunteering together in faraway places, eating together every day, inviting each other to the movies, going out … are envisioned by you.
However, is everything really as simple as you think? The difference in lifestyle, the smallest things in daily life cause many people to lose friends after sharing a room. Roommates addicted to Facebook, bringing their lover to sleep over night, staying dirty… are the reasons why both close friends can “turn around” after living together for a while.
Here are the stories of students living in the same room that everyone has encountered!
It’s true that best friends shouldn’t be in the same room. Only when they miss each other, they sleep together, not together.
One measure you can use when there is a conflict is to sit down and talk clearly with each other and compromise the common rules. If you feel that you cannot reconcile the two, the best way is for each person to find a more suitable friend for themselves.
A person who loved so much, and then turned into a stranger…
There are many friends who choose to live with close friends or long-time acquaintances from middle school and high school. The closeness and understanding before that makes living together more comfortable and easier. However, there are also cases where they have known each other for a long time, but when they come back to live together, they discover that they do not match each other’s ways of life.
Imagine, if you are a person who likes order and cleanliness, and your best friend in the room is an energetic girl outside, but extremely lazy to clean her room when she comes home? Initially, you can remind, even clean the house. However, going to school, coming home from work is already very tired, and also has to clean up the mess caused by her roommate, not everyone is calm enough to endure!
Roommates are something very “important” and “precious” in college life. However, finding a roommate that suits you is not easy. And if you’re with someone you don’t match, you never know how bad life will be.
But your roommate is also the person who is with you the most, more than your parents during the college years away from home, even after graduating from school and going to work. People who eat together, sleep together, play together, go through the joys and sorrows of student life: fall in love, run out of money, get sick,… to grow up together, be strong and mature.
