I played football for my sixth-form school and I am hoping to join a university team. I'm a morning person and I get up early to train and go to the gym. So I would prefer to share with other people who don't like late nights either! Also I am vegetarian and, if possible, I would prefer to share a kitchen with other non-meat eaters.


  1. If the form is on paper, write clearly. Use capital letters if your handwriting isn't clear.
  2. If there is not much space to write, make a list instead of writing full sentences.
  3. Check it. It's easy to make small mistakes!

But If I have to, I'm a morning person so I would like to share a flat with a person who gets up early in every morning.And I don't smoke so I prefer someone who don't smoke either. But I also want to share a person who smart, funny and intelligent.

I would like to live alone and not to share a flat with anyone. But if I have to, I would choose a quiet and organized person. I am a night owl, so I prefer a roommate who goes to bed late
