- Need a place!
- October 9th, 2011
Greetings Chicagoans. I'm currently seeking a new place to live and I am wondering if anyone can help. I've searched all over online, from the usual (craigslist, the Reader) to more unusual sites, which brings me here. I need a place - a room, studio, sublet, whatever - that is clean, pet-friendly and under $400 a month with utilities, which I know is going to be really hard to find. I am willing to live with others or, better yet, search with someone else I am compatible with for a place to live. A little about me: in my early 30s, vegetarian (but don't mind if you aren't), queer, aspiring writer and librarian, late-bloomer undergrad at UIC (spring should be my last semester) who works two part-time jobs in the north suburbs. I need to live in an area that allows for an easy commute to and from work some mornings and late evenings (I start at 10 on Mondays and Mon., Tues. & Wed. get out at 9pm) and to school other mornings (also by 10am, Tuesday through Friday), so I am thinking that off a red line or blue line would be the way to go. Things I like: artsy folks, lots of space and quiet but also occasional movie nights or concerts, cocktails with friends, Wii games, backyard parties, coffee-laden conversations about books and movies and creativity, cooking when there's time/it's convenient, walking, reading, spending too much time online. If you can help at all - need a roommate, want to find a place with me, know someone who would - please do contact me! I hope to hear from you soon!
