Studying online can be a little difficult to navigate at the best of times, it’s even worse when all your housemates are in the same boat and you’re all a bit stir crazy.
You’d swear that housemate 1’s new Apple watch was telling them to reach a spoken word goal because you’ve never seen someone needing to talk this much. Housemate 2 has turned the living room into a home gym and decided now’s the time to play fitness videos 24/7 because they need something to distract them from study.
So how are you possibly meant to get anything done? Well, allow me to give you tips and tricks – as someone (an introvert) who has somehow made it through four years of uni whilst living with absolute hooligans (Hi guys, I still love you).

Getting to produce some of your own food and seeing things grow right before your eyes is truly one of the greatest feelings ever, but it can sometimes be tough to do this on your own. Getting your housemates involved in a shared garden is a great activity and will be so rewarding for all involved. I feel like the luckiest person ever to live with three other people who love plants! If you’re unsure how to get started on your own share-house garden or compost, check out these basic tips and tricks that we’ve figured out (through trial and error) along the way.
