Being on your own – Wonderful life in a hostel

For all the “Mummy’s Baby Boys” and “Daddy’s Lil Girls” who have lived in the hostel, have learned to be not only independent but trustworthy and hardworking. The most important thing is that they have realised the value of life and the loved ones. Life in a hostel is not a simple one, but it is full of stress >.< and challenges. However, how much difficult the hostel life is, it teaches you to be prepared for the real outside world in a way that people who live with parents don’t.

Living in the hostel for 4 years, I have learned a lot of numerous things that people living at home will never learn. Here are the things that I and my friends are spending hostel life have done to make life easier.

1- They know all the possible ways to save their money. 

They know that they will get scolded by their parents if they inform them they have spent the weekly pocket money in one day. 😀 So they have to plan well and save before spending on leisure activities. With the detailed budgeting of every week’s grocery, they can easily start a house budgeting business, marriage budgeting business or any budgeting business.

2- They Understand the value of petrol. Carpooling is their best friend.

If they want to go from one place to another in a 7 seater car, they make sure they are 7. The more the people, the lesser the share of petrol price. 😉


3- Hacks and they are made-for-each-other.

If there is a shortcut, trust me, they are the first people to try. Whether it’s about studies, food or and normal routine thing. They will try!! And sometimes, invent shortcuts too 😛

4-  They know the actual significance of 2 minutes Maggie or sausages at 2 in the morning.


5- They can bear even the “king of Slowest Wifi”.

Spending 4 years with dead slow internet access, they are ready to bear even the Snail-walking-slow internet too! They are the governors of “Patience-Ville”.


6- They have nicknames for all the people around the campus.

There is a “slow talker”, a “red bag girl”, “Mr Bean lecturer”, “Screaming lady” etc. And, to be honest, most of the nicknames are made-up based on the silent judgement of their nature and behaviour. And yeah, the people that our close friends hate are nicknamed their “bestfriends”. 😀

7-  Making friends is the easiest job for them.

Being around all the sad and sorrow souls who are away from the families, they know the value of friendship! They make sure that they not only share the happy moments but also the sad ones. They become family to each other and are always loyal to them. Well, except when they prank each other. 😛keep-calm-and-make-new-friends-9

8- They make their rooms more beautiful than the houses.

They know how to fit a million things into the tiny room. And that too, beautifully. From a dining table to a small beautiful kitchen with every utensil, ranging from a rice cooker, oven, heater, to mini fridge in the far corner. They have everything in the room decorated nicely. They can make one tiny room into their living room, bedroom, kitchen and study. With all that talent, they should think about becoming interior decorators. 😛

9-  They know how to make the best of everything.

Don’t have a mirror? Don’t worry! They will use a spoon to see your reflection. Laptop camera as mirrors or wooden chopstick as a frying spoon, they know how to use them for various purposes.

10- They are an expert in time management.

Managing time between university (8am-5pm), cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner, cleaning the room, washing the dishes, washing the clothes (with hands specially), Skyping with family, talking with friends, and organising events-Trust me, they are the living supermen and superwomen!word-cloud-time-management-related-items-33212637

11- They celebrate even the smallest happiness together.




12- They are prepared to face even the very bad world outside!!!


Difficult or Easy, living in a hostel is one of the most beautiful parts of a life.

Hats off to all the student who are, or who were living in the hostels. 🙂
