Don't worry guys... I get a month to suss things out. Technically 3 weeks or I'll have to pay extra rent.
It just SUCKS that it has be disclosed to me 3 days before christmas. Everyone is away on holidays. A lot of moving dates would force me to stay in a backpacker for a few days.
But I'm not a traveler, I have a carload of stuff with me, including my street-found mattress.
Damn. It just pisses me off and makes me feel so damn stupid and lonely.
Her argument is that she just "doesn't get on with me", and that it's her house. She sees me maybe twice a day for 10min tops, and it's not her house, she's not even the one on the lease. How much of a best buddy copy pasta did she expect me to be?
It grates that her other argument is that I owe her 2$ - TWO - for house commodities. Coming from someone who never paid me back for my share of buys, and to whom I lent 10$ to buy booze when she was low on cash. 10$ I'm still waiting out for. I don't even want to remember the rest of her arguments, the smallness and disproportion of them all seemingly only designed to make the situation more ludicrous.
I was having a perfect chill day, saw Star Wars again, then bought myself and a friend a little x-mas present, in my case a new notebook (since I've run out of space already!) and a new ink-pen... Feeling inspired and motivated, I had a long sit down and wrote 8 notebook pages for my WIP. Was feeling elated and ready to re-write all this tonight and drop a bomb number on Lanko and his haunted thread... Barely had time to sit on my computer that the flatmate came delivering her news.
Spent all evening hunting down rooms instead... sent some 20ish mails and texts, got 3 solid visits scheduled over the xmas time, 3 more pending confirmation.
It's not that bad. I could always get something grungy. I've lived in rooms barely big enough for me to open the door past a queen bed. I just can't lower myself to room-sharing.
Aaaaah. It's such a pain. I'm so tired of this endless moving around. In one year in NZ I moved houses twice (since I lived in a hostel the 1st week). In 1 year and 4 months in Oz, I have moved accommodations EIGHT times. And each time knowing that soon enough my visa will run out, I'll have to sell everything and find a new country to live in.
I'm starting to think I'm taking these things with the wrong angle, and obviously need to rethink my approach. Either travel lighter and behave more like a backpacker, or find a real settling situation.
