Imagine living with your worst nightmare...
For those of you going into second year, you will have now chosen who you're going to be spending the next year with and hopefully, you have chosen wisely...
There's no doubt you've come across a couple of these types already do they remind you of any of your housemates? (Or even yourself?!)
- "THE DOMESTIC GOD/GODDESS"
Some people GENUINELY feel better when they’ve tidied and washed everything and put it in its place. Whatever their reason, so long as they’re not toooo obsessive about it, you can’t complain – those dishes soon rack up in a 6-bed house!
- "MR/MRS MONEYBAGS"
You’re not a gold digger, obviously, but if someone works a ton of jobs or has a parent help them out… you know they’ll always have the money for their share of the bills and rent.
- "THE ARTY TYPE"
We don’t mean someone annoyingly pretentious, but just someone who can cheer up a room with some simple decoration.
- "THE CHEF"
This one goes without saying.
- "THE CONNECTED ONE"
This one can sort you out - whether it’s guestlist for clubs or gigs, or even free food or store discounts!
- "YOUR CRUSH"
The one you fancy/your new partner/your ex... really? Try and picture any other circumstance where this might be normal and you won't find one. Sure, it might be exciting now, but chances are, in six months it will be the furthest thing from fun since, well, ever.
- "YOUR FRENEMY"
We're only in second term. If you've had more than one big argument with this person already, it's only bound to get worse.
- "THE PARTY ANIMAL"
Sure, you like fun, you like to party, drink etc... but there are some people who don't know when to stop. They'll keep you awake during exams and won't care if you're trying to sleep/eat/watch TV/be normal.
- "THE ALIEN"
The one you have literally nothing in common with. You're probably not going to find someone exactly like you - and that's fine, diversity shakes things up a bit! But if you both look at each other like you're aliens, it's going to make for an incredibly awkward year.
- "MR/MRS BIG SPENDER"
Not to be confused with Mr/Mrs money bags, this is the one who says things like ‘I’m broke’ a day after they get their student loan. That 'just' a tenner they asked to borrow for the fourth time this month has soon crept up to £40... and you're not sure you'll ever get it back.
