I live in a flat shared by 13 people, we have 3 bathrooms, 2 of which have showers in. We have 3 fridges and freezers and mostly enough space for all of us. Moving into halls was the perfect decision for me, although my flat is not amongst my social circle - we just seem to be very different - halls is the perfect place to meet people and socialise. As quite an outgoing person I love being around people, living among ao many people for so long, you get to know each other quickly and know yourself better along the process. Whether its having a cup of tea, cooking dinner for one another, poppin to the shops together or pinching a roll up from the person next door, halls create oppurtunities for you to grow along side eachother and gain support in such a big milestone in your life. And who better to help you through the process of adjusting than those who are in the same boat. All in all my experience of halls is one I would recommend, things get tricky; arguements about whose drunk whose alcohol, eaten whoevers food, you wont ger a long with everyone, alot of the time its noisy and sometimes you can feel lonely. But, its important to know that there are and can be problems in any point of your life but being surrounded my people who can relate and understand what youre going through makes the journey all the more enjoyable, and in my own experience you meet true friends who appreciate you, just the way tou are. Living in halls was a brilliant decision I made when I moved to Manchester and I can honestly say I dont regret it one bit.
