Happy Monday! I am loving my Patagonia vest I bought from the Nordstrom sale this summer. It’s one of my favorite purchases from that sale! It’s officially Fall and I’m getting so eager for my cooler weather wardrobe.
But enough about fall, I’m 5 weeks deep into the school year that also means 5 weeks deep into living in a home with 5 other girls. I want to share my experience so far in a more satirical way today that some of you may be able to relate with. If you haven’t yet experienced sharing dish duty with others, this will give you a little glimpse into that life!
When you have roommates make sure to never ever put your dish in the dishwasher. This is a big one! In the morning when you wake up early for that 8am class, just put your dirty oatmeal bowl directly in the sink without rinsing it! Then the next roommate will automatically assume the dishwasher is clean and put their dirty un-rinsed bowl on top of yours, until a pile forms. Make sure you don’t take 5 extra minutes to unload the clean dishwasher too! That would just bother your roommates altogether.
Leave your garbage and recycling cans at the end of the driveway at all times. College neighborhoods are ugly anyway, so who cares about curb appeal!! Plus you’ll become the streets overflow garbage drop off, which will make you the friendliest house on the street.
If the garbage can is full, don’t empty it. The best thing to do when the trash is full is to just keep piling stuff on top of it! You would think it really needed to be emptied, but you’d be surprised how overflowed a trash can could get without having to take it out. It’s also just a fun game to play to see which roommate will cave first and give in to taking the trash out.
When you come home, don’t greet your roommates. They’re just the people you live with anyway, why say hi to them when they come home and ask them how there day was? That would be weird. Oh and it would be equally weird if you said bye when leaving too!
All jokes aside, this is my first time living with 5 other girls in one house. It is a million times better than dorm life, but it does come with different responsibility. Everyone has a different idea of responsibility, cleanliness, and how they want to live, so it takes compromise and brushing some things off your shoulder!
Have a great Monday, I’ll see you all back here on Wednesday!
