I Want to Live In a Commune.

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 162 People

    In college I have always liked having roommates.

    And I think it would be amazing to live in a house with a bunch of people that love and care about you, that you can spend holidays with, and just be yourself with. I often fantasize about living in a commune just like the ladies from one of my favorite bands Rockbitch

    I'd Like To Ask All Of You...

    Why?What drives you to want this?  Let's assume we all want a feeling of Belonging; all desire love and acceptance. Beyond that, what daily/weekly activities or elements would be important to you personally if you lived in a commune?

    I was a guest at a commune. I spent three days there. It was great. I am so jealous of the people who've been able to make that leap. At the commune they had huge gardens. I spent some time working at processing their fresh sage. It was so relaxing and smell so good too. I...
