Whether you’ve just moved into your hostel and you’re looking for a way to break the ice with your roommates, or if you’ve been living in a ladies’ PG in Electronic City for a few years and want some new fun activities to try out with your friends, you’re in the right place. Hanging out with your roommates is one of the best parts about living in a hostel or PG. They often become your found family, and you share some of the best memories with them. So, if you’re looking for a way to spend some quality time together and have some fun in the process, we’re here to help. Today we bring you our list of the best and most fun activities you can do with your roommates.
You don’t need a karaoke bar to have a great musical evening with your roommates. All you need is YouTube and your best performances. Whether you and your roommate have similar tastes in music or not, this can be a great way to have some fun and jam together. If you’re pitch perfect, you can impress everyone with your skills, and if you’re usually just a bathroom singer you can all have a great laugh together. The perfect icebreaker or a great way to spend a rainy day indoors.
Have a spa day together
Self-care is best when it’s shared. And if you’re going to the effort of turning your room into a wellness space, why not share those benefits with your roommate. Put on some relaxing music and break out your sheet masks. There are tonnes of DIYs on the internet that you could try. Playing beauty guru to each other can be a fun way to spend some time together and a spa day will be just what you and your roommate need if you’re both too busy to catch up at other times.
Make dinner together
If you and your roommate are avid MasterChef fans, why not try and put your culinary skills to the test. Cooking together can be an amazing way to spend time with your roommate and get work done at the same time. You can catch up on each other’s days and chat while preparing the meal and once you sit down to eat too. This is a simple and easy way to make a chore that’s part of your daily routine a lot more enjoyable and fun. Even if you only do this once in a while, it can be a great bonding experience.
Be each other’s workout buddies
If you’ve been meaning to make exercise a part of your daily life, having someone hold you accountable is a great way to build your habit. And who better than your roommate, who’s going to be around to see when you’re being lazy or procrastinating. You can exercise together and be each other’s workout buddies. This will help you spend more time together and stay active at the same time. You can customise this anyway you and your roommate like, whether it’s going for a morning walk together or joining the same yoga class.
Go shopping together
There’s nothing quite as fun as shopping with friends. Except perhaps shopping with your roommate. Whether you’re heading to a mall or to the street market near your hostel in South Campus, take your roommate along. You’ll have a great time giving each other suggestions, bargaining or eyeing items that you’ll end up borrowing from each other later. And not just shopping for clothes, go grocery shopping together too. You’ll be able to stock up on snacks and essentials for your room, and you can even buy in bulk and split the cost to make it more affordable.
There you have it! These are some of the most fun activities you can do with your roommate in your hostel or PG. What are you waiting for? Grab your roommate and try one of them out.
