Next year, I’m finally moving out of university housing and living in an apartment with a friend….or so I thought. Let me explain the back story a little bit here. Originally I was going to live by myself in a small apartment somewhere on campus because as much as I love living with my current roommate, I am such a big lover of personal space and silence that I was really ready to just be somewhere on my own. That’s not to say that I don’t love sharing a space with my current roommate because I do (she’s quite fantastic), I am just really ready to be on my own. So, I was talking to a friend of mine who told me that he wasn’t living with anyone and then he suggested that we live together.
OK, here’s the thing. Although I couldn’t see myself living with someone next year, when he brought up the idea of us living together, I immediately jumped at the idea. Why? Because, in terms of how he and I respond to certain situations, we are very similar. I’m very sarcastic and witty (or so I’ve been told) and so is he. We also like hanging out with each other, but at the same time were both very independent, so it tends to work out. The only bad part is that he’s not necessarily the neatest person in the world and I am an OCD cleaning freak. This could either be really bad and make me want to kill him or really good because it will help me feed my cleaning cravings. We’ll just have to see.
But here comes the bad part. We found out today that we can’t live in the apartment we were planning on living in because there is some major maintnence issue. That is probably one of the most vague reasons I’ve heard of for not being able to live in an apartment, but ok, I’ll just go with it. Our landlord did tell us that there is an apartment on the second floor that we would be able to live in and it’s supposed ot be nicerm so I guess I shouldn’t be stressing. But I am. I get to see the apartment tomorrow so we’ll see what I can do. I’m just hoping that it lives up to my expectations because if not, I might lose it. So for now, I’m just going to have to wait.
