Can I please have another weekend to recover from my weekend? Please?
The old roommate is outta here. She does have her keys for another week, since she’s going to come by and pick up any stray mail etc. without having to bother me. But other than that, she’s officially no longer infringing on my regular world.
I interviewed two potential roommate candidates on Sunday. One I loved. The other, not so much. I offered the place to the one I loved, but she’s decided not to move right now after all. So now the dilemma is, do I hold out and wait to see if someone comes along I like enough – or do I suck it up and go with the one I didn’t like quite so much?
The other person gave me a bit of a vibe that I didn’t quite mesh with. She actually reminded me quite a bit of the ex-roommate. Can I handle that until April? Or do I chance a financially risky (not impossible – just not preferable) situation in the hopes that someone better bites at the last minute?
The thing is – I could totally handle the ex-roomie’s quirks. I’m not so much of a stubborn cow that I expect my roommate to be exactly like me. It’s Crazy Ex-Roommate’s total and utter lack of mental stability that drove me up the wall. This potential new CR is currently pursuing a career in mental health and wellness, which makes me think that even if she is a little bit crazy, she at least has her shit together enough to help those (like CER) who totally can not keep their shit together even a little bit.
One other thing to consider, is that I’ve been strongly considering getting out of my place and into something on my own by the summer. Somewhere that has insuite laundry, and where I can own a pet. Perhaps another crazy roommate will be that extra motivation for me…
What would you do?
