Living with strangers really makes you appreciated having your own space; a space where you have complete control over your environment without any real outside input. Sharing a kitchen with other people means I need to respect their preferences on where they would like to keep certain things. I don’t want the pans to go in that cupboard, ’cause it would be more convenient here. The spices go should go on this shelf and the canned foods over here. I guess I could try having a conversation with them about all this stuff, but that’d be a lot of work.
