I am getting roommates. It's only for 3 months, but still... R O O M M A T E S !
I've gotten quite accustomed to living alone. I've grown to love my hermit lifestyle. Well, not exactly hermit, but I go out and come home to an empty house. Or I fill my house with people when I choose to. No matter what, the place was mine. No one else would come and go unless I allowed them to.
But, I've come to accept the fact that I am not going to poke a dent in my debt with this expensive lifestyle I have. So I need to take some temporary drastic measures. Well, just this one because it literally cuts my monthly rent in half. They're sharing 1 room (it's a female couple) because I can not give up my office.
At least it's only temporary. They'll be here for Sept., Oct., Nov., and Dec. $700 times 4 means $2800 that can go towards paying down my ridiculous debt that resulted from being laid off. (st00pid economy...)
I guess it's going to be tough because I need to learn how to live with people again. I'm so not interested. But oh well, such is life. I have to suck it up.
And one of the girls, Jenny, took me in when I went through that ridiculous break-up in October. She lived in a studio. Talk about TINY, yet she shared her home with me and never made me feel bad about it. And they helped me find this place I'm in now.
They're trying to purchase a house together. By moving in with me they can save a lot of $$. So, since I owe them a lot, this is the least I can do. Plus I spent almost 3 weeks living at Jenny's with both her and Ciara there, so I know what it's like to share living quarters with them. It's not bad. They're great people and I love them very much.
I just hate giving up a part of my independence.
