I'm 15 and I share my room with my 2 younger brothers. We have a bunk bed with a double on the bottom and I sleep on the top. The room isn't that big Everytime I mention it, people are always like :headfire:

It doesn't bother me

What about you?

I didn't have anyone to share a room with :nah: I was alright with that though
Despite that, my parents were close friends with a few people who also had kids, who I became really close friends with, so they'd sometimes bring them over for sleepovers and vice versa

Are your parents aware of this?

I shared a bedroom with my older (by 2 years) brother until I was 7.

yes, they are. But it's dependent on the council rehousing us and already have school and work near us

I did when I was really young, pretty sure I ended up getting my own room when I was around 6-7.

I don’t think so. It would be a very big change for me and I’m a very big fan of privacy. You don’t really get privacy when sharing a room, as I’ve heard.

That makes it tricky - have you got somewhere you can study without being interrupted?

I think most people are more comfortable at home

I hope you find enough 'space' to get the time you need.

Thankfully not. My brothers always shared so their room was much bigger. I had the wee box room but at least it was just mine. I hate the thought of living with people now. I never lived in halls or a houseshare either.
