At the moment I am living in an AirBnB flat with four other students from Ironhack. It takes me back to Year 9 at school a little bit. The high school that I attended sends their Year 9 class out to their campus in the country for the whole year, with students returning home for every term holiday.
We lived in ‘houses’ of between 10 and 12 girls and the whole year was a revelation for everyone who attended, I think. The principles of living with other people never really change, of course, but every new group of people will always have their own dynamics.
I know that I can be a difficult person to live with. My flaws begin with a stubborn personality and include mostly kitchen-based preferences like an aversion to strong smells and a tendency to clean dishes as soon as they have been used. I like to think of these flaws as ‘quirks’… On the other hand, I like to think that I am someone who is happy to make compromises so I hope I’m not too difficult.
