this isn't really uni-related, but can't think of where else to pose this question. i am considering living with 3 boys next year when i move to scotland for my master's. i've skyped with them and they seem awesome and flatmate/friend material, fun but not crazy wild. all from the UK which was what i was looking for because i know how crazy international students can get. the only downfall i can think of is that the 4 of us would share one bathroom and i don't know how clean it'll be kept.
so my question is, would it be absolutely silly for me to live with 3 boys?! especially ones that i haven't met in person? my mom hates the idea of me being the only girl (and has "forbidden" me from doing it) and i'm trying to convince her that it's going to be totally fine!

I lived with 3 guys a few years ago (before college). The bathroom issue wasn't a big deal at all. I reeeeally thought it would suck, but it was okay. They take shorter showers than girls, and they didn't have any products scattered across the bathroom (like I imagine girls would). The only issue I had was that one guy would never wash his dishes, so we always had to. The other two guys were completely fine to live with. I lived with really mature people though, and I knew them all before living with them.

I'm not sure if that helps at all, haha. If I hadn't known them, I wouldn't have lived with them. When I moved here for college I made sure to live with a friend, and I'm glad I did because I've seen some of the student houses here and they're disgusting.

Sometimes I think living with people I didn't know would of been better then ones I did know. Me and two friends lived together and we totally had that experience of really getting to know the other people and not necessarily liking it all that much haha.

I got accepted into NBCC in Fredericton, NB for the fall of 2013.
I'm going to be taking Office Administrative: Medical
It's not something that I'm super crazy about, but I have been out of high school for 2 years now and am doing nothing with my life.
I figure that this is a safe bet when it comes to getting jobs because Medical is a pretty high demand. It's pretty cheap too, when it's all said and done I'm only going to have to pay at the maximum 4,000
