Let’s face it: you either hate them or love them!
While planning to participate in Erasmus program, you start thinking about finding Erasmus housing and actually dealing with the fact that you will have flatmates. Yet, in order to be prepared for meeting your new roommates, it is a good idea to know what to expect. Living in a student flat may be either the greatest experience in your life, or on the other hand, hell you will need to survive for the whole Erasmus semester.
We would like to present you 10 types of flatmates you may have during your Erasmus program.
This flatmate will give you a legendary “I will kill you ” look if you loose some bread crumbs on the carpet. You may be happy to have kitchen and bathroom clean, but this is just for a couple of days.
This person will actually make your semester more adventurous and memorable; yet, be ready to wake up at 2 p.m at least 3 times per week.
This is just one of those people who is always ready to talk with you about anything, anywhere, anytime! It is nice to have a person who is wondering about your day and how you are doing, but being asked 100500 questions after a long day is a nightmare.
Can I borrow your cup/ spoon/lipstick/food/towel? Seriously, are panties next?
The Food Thief
Missing some of your frozen pizza bites/ bread/peanutbutter/sausage? Yep. You do live with a food thief. Those guys are sneaky as hell. You may think that it is not that easy to catch them. Yet, you can put some hot pepper in your food; the screams and lots of sweating will help you to spot the thief!
This flatmate type does not even need explanation. Pile of dirty dishes, not fresh clothes, unfinished essays’ papers, food leftovers, and old gums are on one table. No words.
Do you wake up at 3 a.m because random loud music is being played? Do you actually live with earplugs? Do you wish to go deaf? If you answer all these questions with “Yes”, poor you, because your flatmate has no limits with noise. This person talks loud, laughs loud, and sometimes even eats in the way you can hear his spaghetti being chewed in the next room.
Your Personal Life Stalker
This person has literally no limits and asks so many personal questions, which you basically do not even discuss it with your mom. Why damn you need this information?!
The Creepy One
This person is weirdly always quiet and rarely leaves the room. You can hardly see them in the morning doing morning routine or on the kitchen getting some food. You thank God that your roommate gives you so much personal space and does not bother you at all. He answers with short phrases and does not ask any questions. But what the hell is going on in this guy’s room and what is he hiding?
This person is all about healthy and active life style. The fridge is stuck with veggies and fruits; you may also see different porridge and vitamin mixes around your kitchen. You might think, “What is wrong with living a healthy life? Well, try to open a pack of chips in front of that person and then get his judgmental look and the most frequent question you will get when eating fast food:
Does it sound familiar for you? Are you one of those flatmates?
