Hello everyone. I’m @olivertomolife and I’ve studied abroad in Sydney!
I’d like to continue writing about what happened in the share house I lived in Australia.
This is the last time I’ll be writing about my time in a share house, but I’d like to share other things that happened if they seem useful.
I hope you can understand that this kind of thing can happen when you live in a share house.
I experienced studying abroad in Sydney for a year starting in 2018. Now I’m writing a blog about that experience.
By reading this post, you’ll get an idea of what can happen in a share house abroad!
After arriving in Australia, I had already experienced a homestay and my first share house, but I decided to move to a place closer to my school.
On the day of the tour, there was a Japanese person living in the house, so I signed a contract for the room on the same day.
However, her boyfriend, an Iranian man, is a germophobe, and the Chinese woman who has lived there for a long time makes a mess of the communal space.
I was forced to live a life of patience.
However, I thought I would be able to lead a quiet life when the couple moved out.
When a new couple moved in two weeks later, I was in for a surprise.
A New Couple Moves In
A new couple, an Italian woman and an Australian man, moved in.
At first, I didn’t have such a bad impression of them.
However, the more I lived there, the more I saw them swearing.
They often argued with each other on a daily basis.
They would argue loudly in the living room or in their rooms, regardless of where they were.
Eventually, their language and behavior became so bad that I knew I should break up with them as soon as possible.
Her Australian boyfriend wanted to take her to meet his parents, but she refused.
The boyfriend gets angry about it and starts an even worse argument with her.
An Outrageous Incident Occurs
One day early in the morning, as I started to hear the biggest argument I had ever heard, there was a loud noise from the next room, like glass breaking.
Worst of all, various things started breaking one after another in succession.
Her Australian boyfriend started to break things in the room.
He also started vandalizing things in the living room.
After the commotion died down, my Italian girlfriend came to my room to apologize.
She was in tears.
When I looked into their room, I found lights, computers, and other things scattered all over the place.
After that they were vacuuming, but the glass had made its way into the entrance of my room and I was so angry.
At that point, I couldn’t take it anymore and told them to stop bothering me.
Eventually, her Australian boyfriend had to move out of the room.
And the noise was no more than before.
Peaceful life returns.
After the couple broke up, life became more peaceful than before.
However, the Italian woman was listening to music at an unusually loud volume in her room, which was annoying.
I warned her several times, but she was a single-minded person and kept repeating the same mistake.
In the end, I lived in the same place near my school until I returned home, and I was able to encounter things that I would not normally experience.
If I had not encountered such events, I would not have been able to write this article.
- Share houses abroad offer a variety of experiences.
- You should definitely be assertive when living abroad.
- Visiting a share house should be done carefully.
This is a summary of what happened with my housemates in a share house!
I’ll be posting more information about Australia in the future, so please stay tuned.
Thank you for reading to the end!
