Effects of living with a good friend

Have you ever had to leave your family and live by yourself? Many college students in Seoul are from many other regions. Therefore they are put in a situation to leave their hometown and live by themselves. They have many choices such as living by themselves, living in a dorm, and so on. But, I strongly recommend living with a friend. It will help you to manage time effectively, handle loneliness, and build close relationships thorugh having fun.

Living with a friend helps you to manage time more effectively than to live by yourself. When college students live by themselves, some of them tend to sleep a lot, skip meals, and feel bored and go out drinking. This can lead to bad performance in academic performances, and also unsteady time managing. I think the reason behind this is because they have no one home when they get back after classes are over. On the other hand, when you are living with a good friend, this situation happens less. You and your friend can wake each other up in the morning, or go out to have dinner together. Also, you can check up on each other with academic schedule, through studying or going to the library with eachother.

Coping with loneliness is also a hard task for those who live by themselves. Since it's first time to live in outside world, many students face loneliness. Unlike life living with a friend, the situation when you have to do things all by yourself is a great task. However, this merely happens when you live with a mate. You do not have to feel alone when you are at home. Also, when you or your friend is concerned about something, you guys can help each other out, through sharing ideas, thoughts, and importantly by caring each other.

If you want a true friend that can last through lifetime, living with him/her is a great idea. It is a great chance to build strong relationship and have fun at the same time. Even though you and your friend were not the closest friends before, once you spend time with, you guys will feel a really close bond. This relationship will highly likely to turn into life-long friends. Needless to say, really close friends that you can count on is essential part of life. Of course, once you get close, living together, fun life will surely come along. You can enjoy college life through sharing ideas, playing sports, and doing many other things together.

In conclusion, living with a close friend had numerous positive effects compared to living alone. These effects will surely help you to turn your life better. Of course, for some people, living with someone else other than family can feel uncomfortable at first, but this uncomfortable feeling does not last long for many people. If you have to leave hometown and live by yourself, why don't you rather ask your friend to live together?
