Roommate Update

PHEW.

As of yesterday, my roommate is totally paid up in terms of rent.

I feel SO MUCH BETTER.

It’s just a band-aid solution right now since she still doesn’t have a decent job to pay the bills, but we discussed the possibility of her moving out in the future because she is consistently living beyond her means. Thankfully she sees where I’m coming from and that I’m not trying to be mean–only realistic.

I know she’s working really hard to try and find a better job, but I still have that lingering bit of doubt.

I mean, I wouldn’t hire her based on her resume. She can’t seem to hold down a job for longer than a few months, and tends to pick short term contract stuff over anything stable. We all know that dozens of short jobs is not good for your resume!

Both myself and her employers need someone dependable and stable, and I don’t know if she can offer that to either of us. I think that’s where the problem lies. For now I’ve got some breathing room, but I kind of wish she would just give me notice and move out so I can find a proper roommate to replace her.

  1. Whew! I'm glad it's working itself out. That whole thing has got to be so stressful! Here's hoping that she either gets the right job or can find the means to move.

  2. Wow it's good that you got her to pay up on rent at least, and had a good conversation with her. It's so hard to have those conversations with roommates without things getting nasty or people getting their feelings hurt. But yeah, hopefully she'll either get a serious job or move out…
