Stating away from home has its pros and cons, but one thing is for sure – when you move away from home, you create your own little house where you learn lessons of life and create great bonds.

Barring landlord and water shortage issues – you will definitely cherish all those moments later in your life.

Here are the things which only people living away from home will relate to!

1. Maggi is your all time food
90% of people always prefer Maggi over normal food. Reason – laziness, tasty and less time consuming. Yes, it comes to your rescue when the fridge is empty and there is curfew out their in your town!


2. Laundry and I, no good friends

Dirty clothes will keep shifting from table to bed and vice-versa, during day and night respectively, but will reach the cleaning place only when there will nothing else left to wear.


3. Set bed? What is that?
Students miss those days when they used to get the bedroom all set when they came back from school. But now, every possible thing on earth can be found on the bed.


4. Mid night friend – tea

Along with Maggi, what comes handy is TEA. Yes, it helps you finish your assignment, it helps you to stay awake to talk to your partner, and it helps to turn you into a midnight philosopher where you can give lectures about life!

5. Staying with cockroaches

Your friends might miss out on visiting you, but cockroaches will stay loyal to you and will come and visit you daily. Sometimes in the kitchen, sometimes in bathroom! Aah that love!


6. Sharing bathroom

You might be the best of friends, but you will surely fight once in a day, and that will be the time of bathing. One will be inside, singing old songs and enjoying hot shower and the other will be seen outside banging the door.

12. Landlord’s interference

OMG! “You had beer in the house” to “when will you pay your rent”, landlords will always be the one spoiling your mood. You can’t even kidnap them in their own house! Sad !
