    in a few weeks I'll be going on a residential trip with school and my teachers gave me the option of having my own room but I said I'll be fine sharing.


    the thing is I kinda want to have my own room because I like my own privacy and i take too long in the bathroom getting ready in the morning so I don't want to feel under pressure to be quick in the bathroom with my peers wanting to get washed, I like to take my time.

    Will I look weird If I have my own room? surely it's understandable that I like my own privacy?

    It depends on whether other students will also be in their own rooms or you're the only one. If there are others, then no one will consider it to be weird. However, if you're really concerned and you're the only one, then you might just have to put up with it for a few days. I have an ensuite bathroom at home (the house is designed really weird in that each bedroom has an ensuite but there's no communal bathrooms) but I was fine with sharing bathrooms on school visits because I didn't have a choice.

    Think about why you take so long in the bathroom. Could it be things that don't need to be done in the bathroom (like doing hair/makeup, etc.) and could another person join (like 2 people brushing their teeth at the same time)? As far getting dressed, I usually do it in the bathroom but if there's more than 3 people sharing the room, I'll change under my duvet while still in bed so I still have some privacy.
