How do I talk to my roommate about his annoying habits?

Anonymous
I live in a college campus apartment with my guy friend and another guy. Here are the annoying habits of my guy friend:
- cooks and leaves a huge mess in the kitchen, and leaves his dirty dishes in the sink for days
- leaves his personal belongings out in the living room for days (his shoes, jackets, books, bag, car keys, etc)
- doesn’t take out the trash until it starts overflowing
- uses the last bit of toilet paper/paper towels, and doesn’t replace them
- drinks the last bit of water from our brita, and doesn’t refill it (he’ll either place the empty brita back in the fridge, or leave a drop of water in it)
- hogs the living room as it’s his own room (constantly sleeps out there and leaves his stuff out there)
- doesn’t clean up his mess before going out of town

I don’t know how to talk to him because he’s one of my good friends and I don’t want it to be awkward. Or maybe I’m being to nit picky. What do you guys think?
