Hello internet friends!
Today I am going to talk to you a bit of how it is like to live in a student room. I am bored, I’m waiting for my laundry to dry, so why not take this time to share a bit of my world ??
I am living in a student house since October now. I won’t tell the exact name of it here, but it is one close to my Uni, which is a good point. For me, it was the safest idea for my first year in London. As I didn’t know a lot of people before moving in the big city, I didn’t wanted to risk a flatshare .. Living in a student house is EXPENSIVE. It is a huge amount of money and honestly, I don’t think it really worth it. Last year I was living in a flatshare in Marble Arch and it was cheaper than that. Anyway, it is still the best for my first year.
The place is super clean which is great and with a good security system. There is a range of room and I think I am in a « single studio » or something like that. What does that mean? Well, in my room I have: a bed, a desk, a cupboard, a kitchenette and the smallest bathroom in the world. The nice thing about it is that I don’t have to share the last two, but the bad thing is that it makes everything small. It means that I live in one single room, and this for a year. I’m lucky to have quiet a big flat back home, so it was hard at the begining to get use to it… Now it is okay, but I can’t wait to fly home tomorrow and enjoy some space!
But I won’t complain too much as I know some people are in much worse situation than me. I just wich I had one more room! The rest is okay, we have to share a laundry room with only 3 machines to wash and 3 machines to dry, which is not a lot regarding the number of rooms in the student house! But it will do. We also only have one hoover and let me tell you, this is a hoover coming from the Middle Age. Like seriously ? What on Earth is this thing? I think one thing UK people need to discover is modern hoover. I sware it does exist.
We also have a small gym but to be honest, I don’t use it as it only has machines and I hate using those, it is a bit dirty and not pleasant, I prefer group classes (yea I know, I’m a difficult person).
Anyway, my life in a student house could be better, but also could be way worse. I think I will manage to survive for a year, and then I will find a flatshare with some of my Uni friends!
Let me know where you live if like me you are a student and you don’t live anymore with your parents!
