Welcome to the dark ages

Have you ever wondered how a more "privileged" London undergraduate accommodation might look like? Here it comes:

the sunlight never reaches me ...

As you will realise I have to share a room, since my financial situation is a little precarious, or rather I'm not throwing out mummy's money with both hands. My history of room-mates is somehow peculiar itself.

My fist cohabitant studied dance (note: straight!) and was a little too much affiliated to smoking certain weeds. He was also a passionate winter-surfer, permanently exposing me to a cloud of viruses.

Number 2 was quite the contrary: 40 year old american member of Opus Dei obsessed with conspiracy theories. Both had one thing in common: they couldn't shut up for a second (no offence meant, they had their positive sides as well and we shared a lot of entertaining moments).

Leo on the other hand is probably the calmest person I've ever met, almost mute. Most of my questions are answered with laconic phrases reducing the possiblity for conversations to an absolute minimum. I'm living with a stranger ...

Maybe you should get out of your 'cozy' room, so that your roommates wont feel the need to entertain your video rants! ha! Opus Dei is watching! How's that for a conspiracy! Stay off the Guiness Mike!
