Reflections on Living Away From Home
Well, it's been around 9 months since I moved out of home. So I think it's time to give birth to summary of the many things that I have learned since moving out.
- Not showering one day has taken on new meaning. It now means that I get to delay the washing of towels by one day. If I do this 7 times a year, I have saved a week.
- Housemates' food is much like food from a convenience store. It's always there and looks delicious, just ready to be eaten when you get back drunk or high at 3am. And much like convenience store food, you have to pay for it. Both in the risk of hearing "did you eat that? Fuck, I had plans for that." and also the high replacement costs of going to the shops, purchasing and returning to the shops.
- These are the days where it never rains but it pours.
- Orgies are relatively uncommon. Not like what the internet had led me to believe.
- That container in the fridge doesn't below to anyone in the house.
- People sometimes break in, leave containers in your fridge, leave, lock the door behind themselves.
