Rachel Not sure why I have 21 subscribers when all I post are to-do lists.
I have been working on this all month, and it is just exhausting.
I’m moving across the country in August. It’s a college town, so there’s tons of housing geared towards students, but also tons of competition for it.
I both don’t want to and can’t afford to live by myself, so I must find roommates. But since I live 3,000 miles away, no one wants to live with someone they haven’t met. When I say we could skype, everyone just moves on to the next person on their list.
The only people I know are other incoming physics students, who I specifically don’t want to live with (because we’ll be seeing each other all day at work and it just seems like too much potential for disaster).
There’s also the problem of many leases running June-May as opposed to August-July which is what I need. Not really into paying rent for the whole summer when I won’t be out there yet.
I’ve been considering maybe signing a lease for a 2-bedroom apartment myself and then being the one to turn down potential roommates. But that presents its own set of problems, since once again, I am 3,000 miles away: I won’t be able to see the apartment in person and neither will my roommate.
I’m just not sure what else I can do at this point.
