Moving to a new flat
A month ago I was told by my current flatmate his girlfriend would move into his flat in two months which means I need to find a new place to live. I was not surprised at all as I felt it coming for some time, even though my flatmate insisted he was not sure if they wanted to live together at all. So I started searching for a new place.
I went through a lot of ads and step by step the idea of my future room formed in my mind. During this time I also had the feeling I wouldn’t move in September but maybe a month earlier.
I knew I wanted my room to be large (now I have a 12 square meter room), with a wooden floor, unfurnished or with just enough furniture so my own can fit in easily. I wanted it to be in a quiet place, close to a park, near to both of my jobs, with an equipped kitchen with a gas stove and I wanted to live alone or with some really nice people (I did not quite like the idea of living with someone I don’t know).
As I was going through the ads, I found a flat with a place to sleep that was kind of separated from the rest of the room due to the ground plan and I liked it a lot (I wanted to have the feeling of privacy when having a guest). And I thought it would be nice to have a part of the room painted violet – but this was really something extra I could not currently afford to pay for.
Then one day a friend called asking if I knew about someone who wants to move. I said cheerily: “Yes, me :-)”.
Well the room is everything I wanted; it was once two rooms so it is really BIG and my friend’s former flatmate even painted half of this room violet :-))). When I came to see the flat it felt so right!
By that time there was a big sofa, a middle sized sofa, plus an armchair in the room – which was a bit too much. I wished I only had the middle sized sofa, plus armchair.
One of my flatmates needed something to sit on so he took the big sofa, and again I have what I wanted, plus there is a huge luxurious Jacuzzi in the bathroom I did not even dream of!
As for my flatmates they are both bartenders which means they work at night when I am asleep and are home when I am at work so a part of the week it will feel like living completely alone whereas for some days there will be always someone to chat with :-))).
And I am moving in August. 🙂
