Room Mates

I don’t have a human room mate but I share my room with 3 small cacti, one Calamondin plant, lemon grass, a rose, and alpaca-vased plant. Plants are living beings so I do consider them as my companions. Watering them gives me a sense of responsibility and seeing them prosper gives me a sense of pride.

Great roommates. No arguing, they probably don't make much of a mess and they wont eat the last of your food.

At least your roommates does not give you problems. They are not loud and noisy

True that! The only downside is they don’t pay rent. If they happen to do, I’d keep more of them.

I actually live with another Filipina with her family but we don’t share a room. Yes that was me. Now I have a mattress and a cabinet as well as a mirror.

@flapiz do you have a curfew or do you have a separate entrance/exit?

@hereandthere it’s just a house divided into 4 segments. My housemate and I share the same entrance. We got no curfew.

They are still a good companion to you. You can also talk to them but you will never get a response.

I do talk to them and say nice things. Study shows plants grow better with positive talk and music.

I know I’m obsessed with Alpacas after I saw a live one.

@flapiz They're very cute, aren't they? I saw them close-up at our Royal Show. It was quite warm in the shed and they had fans going all the time to keep the alpacas cool.
