Naranasan ko na lahat. Syempre kung comfort gusto mo talaga, nothing beats having your own space like an apartment. Or kahit an entire room lang. However, kung ako tatanungin napakadami mong matutunan kung kahit pansamantala lang tumira ka sa dorm.
1. Dyan ka matututo makisama at makibagay. Mahahasa dyan talaga social skills mo. Lalo kung coed. Ibaiba kayo ng probinsya, relihiyon college, etc.
2. Matutunan mo magtyaga. Kasi syempre pila yan sa banyo, hirap magsampay, at minsan pa hirap ka din magaral kasi ang daming distractions
3. Makakakuha ka din dyan ng meaningful na friendships, kasi kungbaga sa preso magkakaselda na lang kayo, kaya di maiiwasan magkwento ng mga personal experiences nyo. Naalala ko the first coaching I ever recieved about dating was from my dorm mates. I was with them before and after the whole thing. Not to mention, it helps when you have people around you who help you deal with home-sickness
Eventually of course, I moved to my own private space. Ngayon I live in an apartment all by myself. Living by yourself is a skill you need to develop, especially overseas. And all the skills I have now started in that bootcamp in Kalayaan, Nara, and Ipil residence halls of UP diliman
