    University is about education, not living properly. Duuh
    University is about becoming an independent human being. Education and living properly are connected. How can you expect to perform well in your lectures when you come home to piles of filth everyday?

    University is a holiday compared to having even a relatively cushy nine-to-five job.

    Though as you said, if you don't mind squalor then that's absolutely fine.
    It really isn't, I work full time during the holidays as a care assistant and it's an absolute doss compared to uni. I know that myself and a lot of my friends had to start finding new projects to do and find excuses to go out because we were getting bored with just having the full time job.

    People are stressed out with work, revision, yes classes, prepping meals, doing washing etc

    yh it might seem small but going from having everything given to you to such a life is very hard. If having a messy room is the biggest issue you have as a student then you're doing pretty good imo.
    plus on top of that stress you lets say decide to put an end to this dirtiness and clean the kitchen and everything. and then your flatmates mess it all up in about 10 seconds. Do you clean it again?

    *speaking out of experience of living with 7 other people in halls in the 1st year. We created life in the kitchen. And I'm not talking about rats(we had them too). The plates started walking because of the mould.

    I didn't finish uni but this was at a privately rented house. They may have had whisky or something around Divali but there was certainly never any going out 5 nights a week or nothing like that. Fresh food is not something I would ever compromise on and it is not expensive to get these ingredients. The western habit of spending more on alcohol than on food is incredibly worrying, as indeed is the culture of promiscuity and informal copulations. In an ideal world you wouldn't have state endorsing and subsidising these debased behaviours and most Indians I met would severely shun those who engage in them outside marriage.
    I have to say, I worked with four indian guys last year and they were so desperate to pull it was pathetic. In fact it was downright creepy. So nice try, but they're just as 'bad' as westerners.

    Like what? Being late to your media studies lecture or arranging a time to go the pub? I don't see how people don't have time to live cleanly.
    Hang on - you'd rather be late to teaching, or skip socialising to stay home and clean!?

    I accept some people are cleaner than others and leaving food around is indeed pretty gross, but it seems to me your priorities are out of wack.

    There is always time to do the dishes. My sister who's a nurse works 07:30-20:00 four to five days a week has a spotless house with clean dishes, etc.
    That's a lot of bank shifts she's doing. Perhaps she pays for a cleaner will all that extra money? :p:

      These sort of people probably behave like that at home.

      Charity begins at home and if you do not learn the basics of how to cook, clean and wash up then you are not going to display that outside.

      It's reading stuff like this that makes me glad that my parents gave me chores to do growing up. I know people who are going to university and they don't even know how to put the washing on.
      Very true and I agree. When I lived in the halls I used to share with a guy; his parents came up every weekend just to collect his washing! :eek:
