When you’re a freshman in college, community bathroom horror stories come at a dime a dozen. But, nobody ever talks about the really cool benefits of sharing a bathroom with 15-20 other girls. Until now, that is.
1. Sharing a bathroom with other girls means you’ll be exposed to a boatload of new products.
Walking into the bathroom every morning will be like walking into CVS or opening up the latest issue of Seventeen. Every girl has a different beauty regimen, so no two shower caddies are alike. Check out what products other girls on your floor are using and don’t be shy about asking if they really work.
2. You’ll pick up new beauty tricks.
That girl with those perfect, natural looking waves everyday? Observe her styling technique because chances are she’ll be doing it in the community bathroom where the lighting and mirrors are better, and where she won’t wake up her roommate. What kind of brush does she use? Is she using a blow dryer? A flat iron? Etc. Pro tip: avoid looking like a creeper and keep yourself busy using the hand dryer or sink.
3. You’ll never race your roommate to the bathroom.
That awkward moment when you want to shower right after the gym but so does your roommate…DIBS! When you use a community bathroom you never have to compete over who gets to shower first. Bonus: you can have a whole conversation during the shower.
4. You don’t have to spend money on toilet paper.
You will look back on this fondly once you have your own bathroom…
5. You don’t have to clean it.
