I have been insanely busy these past couple of weeks. I am going through a new life experience: moving. I recently moved into a room with some random Craigslist people.
Life. Is. Not. The. Same.
1) I can’t store my food everywhere
I have to store my bread, bananas, spices, garlic, onions, rice, and noodles all on the same pantry shelf. My fridge space is also cramped. How am I supposed to meal prep without more space?
2) I can’t use the bathroom with the door open
When living at home, I would always keep the bathroom door open. Not just unlocked, but open. The openness comforts me.
3) I can’t walk around the house half-naked
I am comfortable with my half-naked body, but my new housemates might not be.
4) I can’t come home extremely late
I came home late after a night of drinking. It was 3:00AM. Right when I opened the door, one of the two dogs started to bark. Yeah. Great first impression.
Of course, I can technically still do all the things I did before. But that would be rude of me to impose my weird habits on my new housemates. It will take a while, but I am slowly adjusting to a different way of life. No more open bathroom doors or walking around the house half-naked. I also live further from my friends and family, so my social life would have to cost me some gas money.
Looking for a place to stay was hard. There were so many Craigslist postings that I sifted through. I’m thankful I found a nice place from Craigslist. I’m thankful for having a roof over my head. I’m thankful that these housemates I found on Craigslist aren’t creepy or weird.
