ok kids, here's the deal.

koko FINALLY told me what he's going to put in writing for me. i will be allowed to stay here for february and march paying $650 a month. if i have not found a roommate, i need to be out march 31. if i end up movinge out, he will keep my security deposit. this is reasonable enough.

so what do i do? i like the apartment, yes. it's beautiful. but i'm at the point where i want to set up house all over again. and if i do just move out, do i move into a new roommate situation, or try and talk mom and dad into splitting rent with me on a studio or one bedroom? i'd like to stay in watertown. there is good public transit, and it's half way in between the city/my friends and work (which is newton center)

i don't really feel like moving to newton, but the idea did cross my mind for like, 30 seconds

so yea, any thoughts and imput would be lovely.

the idea of living by myself. nifty and scary all at the same time...

Maybe it's obvious, maybe not...have you tried craigslist.com for either roommates or a new place?

I had the exact same issue about four months ago. I really loved this apartment, figured I could stand a roommate in order to keep it. I found a slightly not-so-well adjusted roommate (of course, I didn't know this), and out of desperation, asked him to stay. Four months of living with this schmoe later, it has made me realize that you know, I really could afford to make a huge change and move out and get my own place.

For what it's worth, I'd say stay and look for new places for just you.

been doing craigslist since october. almost had someone, we got along great, he was cool with the poly thing, then one of his buddies called him up, heard he was looking for a place, talked him into getting a place togeather in the back bay, about 2 hours before he was going to call me to tell me he'd take it.


as for looking for a new place, i've been keeping my eye on stuff there for months, in case i needed to find a new place, to have a good idea of what the market looks like.

it's also where i found the listing for my new job. i LOVE craigslist.
