憧れていた東京のシェアハウス生活

東京のシェアハウス生活に憧れていた私は、元々住んでいたマンションの契約更新のタイミングでシェアハウスに引っ越すことを決意。以前よりも少しだけ家賃が高いけど、すでに家具や家電はあるみたいだし、長い目で考えればかなりお得だと思う。東京での1人暮らしって何かとお金がかかるから、少しでも生活費が浮くのはとても嬉しかった。何より、憧れていた理由は複数人の男女が1つ屋根の下で共同生活を送るという点。どちらかといえば人付き合いは得意だったし、せっかくなら誰かと一緒に暮らしたほうが楽しいだろうなって思っていたんだ。それに、もしかしたら恋愛関係に発展する人との出会いがあるかもしれないし。これは完全にテレビの影響だけど。そんな期待に胸を膨らませて、いざ入居してみたら、喜ばしいことに年齢が近い人ばかりですぐに意気投合!みんな地方から来ていて、やっぱりシェアハウスに決めたきっかけは私と同じ理由だった。ここでは、時々パーティーを開催したり、みんなで一緒に東京の観光スポットに出かけたりするらしい。「今では他人同士というよりも家族に近い関係だ」って、私と同い年の女の子が言っていたよ。新入りの私にも優しく接してくれて、本当に毎日が楽しくて仕方がないの!

Share house life in Tokyo I was longing for

As longing for a share house life in Tokyo, I decided to move to a share house at the timing of contract renewal for my current apartment. The rent is slightly higher than before, but there seems to be furniture and appliances already ready, I think that it is considerably advantageous in the long run. Living in Tokyo alone costs a lot, so I was very glad that I was able to reduce my living expenses even if it is just a little. More than anything, the reason why I longed for it is that many men and women live together under one roof. If anything, I am good at socializing and I thought that it will be more fun if I live with someone else. Besides, there may be encounters with people who I can have relationship with. This is perfectly influenced by TV. When I was excited about such expectation and actually moved in, I was happy that all the people were close in age, and soon became good friends! Everyone came from the local areas, and the reason why they decided to choose the share house was the same reason as me. Here, we sometimes hold parties and we all go out together to sightseeing spots in Tokyo. A girl of the same age as I say, “residents here are not just other residents, but like a family.” They have been kind to newcomer, me, and everyday it is really fun!
