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!

What kind of people would you like to share a house or flat with?
perish the thought of living with anyone!!, I wouldn't like to live with anyone. I lived in a dorm in a 10-bed room for two years and also I lived in a room 4-bed room for one order to get my bachelor's degree. Of course, at that time I wasn't that introverted.
but as it turned out, I got introverted more, and now I need quiet and peace very much. I enjoy my loneliness and working in silence or when instrumental music is playing. silence makes me coordinate with my inner and gives me lots of feeling grateful.
When I think about the past, I realize that a lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then. My personality has changed too.
As a result, I prefer not to think about this subject as long as I'm going to get married! though I can write my favorite spouse characteristics :)

The first thing that I really want to ask you is a room with bathroom in and second thing is quite neighbors, because I become angry and cant concentrate on work or studying process when someone live a loud night life.
Also I prefer to live on-campus, but if there are not available options we can easily solve it! For example: I can leave somewhere else where are good nature, a park and a gym nearby. Yeah, by the way, I like doing any exercises or go running in the morning.
