Not really, but it is usually the same. I live in a student corridor, so I have my own room and bathroom but share a kitchen with 7 others. I go from my computer, or the floor if that’s where I’m sitting, get up, go to the bathroom, open the cabinet, get my razor (sometimes I still use scissors though) sit down on the toilet if I’m going to do it on my legs, roll up my pants and cut for a while. Sometimes I do it on my shoulders or other places, but often the legs. I usually try to find a rather clean, healed spot. But there have been occations where I’ve been at other places, once I was at my mum’s place, she yelled a lot at me and I started crying and ran off to cut. Then I thought more like “Look what you’ve made me do!”, I sort of wanted her to see and feel bad about it. But I’ve never let her know.
