I’m back again to share one of my stories about living in Japan. As you might have known I have started working at Come on UP this past September and have stayed in one of their share houses during this time. That share house being the Re:Midoribashi house that is located near Midoribashi station in Osaka. Because I have stayed in the share house for quite a few months already, I thought it would be appropriate to share my share house experiences with you.
Well, starting of at the first day that I moved in. Moving into a new house is a thrilling experience and made me scared in the beginning, especially moving into a house that is full of strangers. Thoughts about whether they would like me, if I could fit in and if have enough privacy while living there occurred. My worries were long gone when I arrived at the house and the kind share mates helped me immediately with all my heavy luggage, as well as explaining everything about the house to me. During that day I hadn’t eaten a lot because I was way too busy and stressed about moving. Good thing is that right after I’ve arrived the share mates were cooking together and we ended eating together. Not a bad first impression I must say!
I must say that during my stay here, I’ve eaten a lot. My fellow residents love to cook and we often have dinner together. They also love to do activities together. In the beginning of October we went to a baseball game, which was by the way my first game ever! Although I am personally not that interested in baseball, I still had a great time together with my share mates.
Despite having a lot of fun with my share mates, I still have a lot private time and privacy. Something that I personally enjoy a lot. We only spend time together every once in a while, so it does not feel like we don’t have any time to rest. Everybody has a different background, a different occupation and a different lifestyle. All while living under the same roof. Living at a share house definitely gave me many fun experiences and created many opportunities for me to network with different people.
I greatly enjoy my time while living at Midoribashi share house and I highly recommend everyone who wants to build their network to try living at a share house too.
For now I will enjoy the rest of my time in Midoribashi!
