Okies, I promise, this is the last one.
So far, since February, I have updated y’all on almost everything from my original list. There were four paragraphs of information there, three that I couldn’t really elaborate on.
The first that I did was the 3rd paragraph, and I did that here. Basically a great guy I met and went on one date with told me after our great date that he had two months left on his student/work permit and wasn’t having any luck getting his permanent residency and if nothing worked he’d have to leave and go back to Ghana. We still talk a little bit and yesterday we touched base for literally 4 text messages where he said he’s still fighting to stay and that now he needs to find a wife in the next 4 weeks to have a common law marriage. I think he’s using the wrong terms, but that still sucks for him.
Then of course, I did the 1st paragraph just a few weeks ago when I signed my contract for my new job! YAY
Now, for the last little bit.
Then this was like, yeah I guess I could, but maybe I should look at this instead. And I’m kind of glad I did because if it all fits into place, then it’ll be much better for me. Ya’ll understand! Girl’s gotta look out for herself!
In my current job, I’m technically a live-in nanny. I have my own little suite which has everything I need in it like my own little apartment. But once I am done working for this family, I have to move. It’s probably the main reason I haven’t searched out something more in the last three years. I don’t want to move! But now I have to.
I was going to text the guy where I lived when I first moved for this job, but thought it would eat up my ENTIRE pay increase plus a little bit more. I don’t want that, so I set up a viewing for a few places.
I’ve been searching a little bit but not too much because it’s so early. But now it’s getting to be that time where I should be looking. I have to move by August 1st so time is slowly ticking away. I did look at those few places wwaaayyy back when I made that first post, but one was a house with SIX other people, and the other was about $100 over what I’m comfortable budgeting for. So now I’m going to be restarting my hunt. I want something close to the school where I’m working, and I did find what looked like a really nice place and I messaged them on Sunday but no reply as of yet. Hopefully soon! Is double messaging a thing when you’re looking for a place to live? Maybe they accidentally deleted my email from the site? Maybe I should just be like “hey is this room still available?” Haven’t decided yet. But now I should really start to focus on it.
