Things I've Learnt Living In A House Share

1. You'll question humanity multiple times, especially around dinner time when you want to use the nice pan but someone hasn't washed it up since last weekend.

2. You'll cave eventually and do everyone's washing up but grumble constantly and send a passive aggressive whatsapp message about it.

3. Talking is often the best way to get anything solved, but surely you shouldn't have to tell someone to clean out the sink of rice, right?

4. You can actually make some friends and in all seriousness, it's a great way to meet people when you move somewhere new.

5. You'll actually be sad when someone leaves. How dare they have any other people to hang out with and move in with their boyfriend?

6. I've learnt to sleep through quite a lot of noise, except the noisy gamer housemate who 'forgets that you're in the house' when he's shouting at his World Of Warcraft game at 3am.

7. You'll silently judge each person who comes around to view an empty room. They had better be house trained.

8. You'll come to the realisation that the house is, and always will be a little bit shitty, but the idea of scouring Spareroom and having to move again is a bit too much effort.

9. There'll always be some sort of weird substance in the sink / some weird smell in the fridge / some strange food cooking.

10. Don't expect anyone to do any cleaning up..ever



  1. Oh my gosh, I'm so happy you wrote about this just now, haha. I'm moving into my first house share in about 2 weeks and this would be my first time living with strangers. I moved out only a few years ago to live with my boyfriend so I skipped the whole house sharing experience until now.

    1. Ah good luck - this post was only a bit of fun and it has been a great experience. I moved somewhere new and my first housemates were amazing - We're still great friends! I'm actually moving and going to be a lodger in a family home just outside London so we'll see how that goes! Good luck! xx

  2. This is a brilliant blog! I'm very happy with the comments!.. Rubbish Removal
