I believe we have all experienced the great excitement and slight trepidation of starting a new era in our lives and becoming an independent young adult by living away from our families. Just like any other college student, I took this huge, scary step towards independent life, with a healthy dose of both angst and joy.
Moving to Milano in the summer of 2014, I knew I would be living in a lovely little apartment with two bedrooms, one would be mine, and I hadn’t the slightest clue of who would share the flat with me and take the other bedroom. Between the many worries of a college fresher, I was quite glad to entrust the task of finding a flat mate in a city where I knew no one to my landlord, but of course I had so many doubts about all the possibilities of living with someone completely incompatible with me. I only had a vague idea of what sharing all the responsibilities of taking care of the apartment would entail, and most of those ideas came from movies and TV shows! Of course once I got to meet my first flat mate, an exchange student from France, most of my fears shrank to insignificance, and we made it work just fine.
The next year I got the lovely chance of choosing my own flat mate and helping one of closest friends to move in with me. This obviously added a completely new flavor to the whole concept of having a flat mate. Here I had the work of Flat Fit cut out for me, as I knew we could easily talk about any issue that would arise and solve it together. This brings me to a key point that everyone sharing apartments or rooms will probably agree on. Trust is absolutely the key ingredient to building a comfortable and happy environment, it allows for much more flexibility, freedom and confidence when dealing with any issues or responsibilities that may trouble the household.
