14 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Live With Friends

 Living with friends is an amazing experience, and before you enter that new household you know it will be filled with parties, good times and a lot of laughing.

But there are things that happen when living together that cannot be avoided and let’s face it, it ain’t no picnic.

1. The awkward first weeks when no one buys anything communal.

So, err… we don’t have any forks.

2. The bathroom is perpetually occupied.

9. There is no noise agreement, no matter the time.

Who gives a crap if your flatmate has to work tomorrow at 7am tomorrow, they probably did it to you last week.

It never ends well.

Too. Early. No. Speaking.
