You will have to queue to use your own bathroom.

1. One of your housemates will always start showering just as you need a wee.


You'll try and get in some kind of morning routine, but it never quite works.

2. And you always want to do laundry on the exact same day.

3. The sofa space will be slightly inadequate.

4. This will get worse when someone invites their friend over.

Someone will have to sit on the floor.

5. And even worse when housemates invite their "special friends" over.

6. You bitch about all your housemates, to all your other housemates.


And they have probably both bitched about you. Not in a necessarily in a mean way, but in a therapeutic way.

7. Some housemates will see certain foods as communal and others will not.

Onions are obviously a communal food.

8. There will be a clear hierarchy of who does the most cleaning, but only the person at the top will be fully aware of this.


9. Almost all of your arguments will revolve around the washing up.

13. Someone will bring a cold into the house and everyone will get it.


And then angrily blame the bringer of the cold.

No one will own up to being the owner of the vegetable.

Even if you don't hear them come in, when you come downstairs in the morning there will be a tell-tale trail of destruction.

20. One housemate will have a really weird food habit.

But by the end of the year, everyone will have tried it.

21. There will always be hair in the sink.
