23 Signs You Live In a Student House Monica Geller Would Be Proud Of
It’s a student house, but it’s not really a student house.
1. You don’t avoid the cleaning until you’ve started to fear for your health.
So the oven is not a toxic environment and you’re never afraid to go into the bathroom.
2. And you definitely don’t need a cleaning rota because, if anything, you clean too much already.
3. A house inspection is literally no big deal.
It’s barely even a deal.
4. In fact, you’ll end up leaving the house in better shape than you found it.
5. You have had a successful house trip to IKEA.
Homeware is v exciting
6. So there are more throws in your living room than there are housemates.
7. And there has definitely never been a traffic cone in your kitchen.
8. It’s totally cool if someone uses some of your milk.
Because you generally all share each other’s stuff.
9. There have definitely been times when you’ve opted for a cheese and wine night over a mad one.
10. Because cosy nights in are your absolute fave.
In fact, you’d rather be in the house than anywhere else.
11. Though sometimes you do worry you’re not doing the wild student thing enough.
Maybe other students think you’re prematurely middle aged, but you don’t care.
12. If you accidentally break something, you don’t just hide it and pretend no one will notice.
Or ignore it and hope it will fix itself.
13. And bin jenga is not a game you play.
14. You often go elsewhere for pre-drinks because the thought of having loads of messy humans in your space is terrifying.
The aftermath is too stressful.
15. But venturing into other people’s student houses is usually terrifying too.
16. You consider nice kitchenware an investment, not something to be bought at the lowest possible price.
17. And you’ve made a Christmas meal together without burning the house down or poisoning anyone.
18. On the off chance that you ever do slip and let things get messy, it upsets you more than is reasonable.
If it’s another housemate’s fault, you can guarantee you’ll make a point of tidying up after them.
19. And you’ve found yourself getting stressed and apologising to guests for the mess when there is literally no mess.
“I can’t believe you brought friends over when there were TWO dirty mugs in the sink” “What must they think of us”
