    Sooooo I've never lived on my own and not on campus. I have no fucking clue when I should start looking. Someone else I know already has a place lined up, which freaked me out, because I havent even started thinking about it.

    I want a place for May1. I have 1-3 females interested in living with me (I'm just that cool).

    I want to live somewhere NICE, has to have a dishwasher (and apparently a bathtub), close to downtown or LRT, preferably NW or SW. Suggestions? Also, no old people neighborhoods. I hate old people smell. When should I start seriously looking? Tips please nigerians.

    There seems to be quite a bit near downtown. Most places are showing available March 1st but we haven't contacted anyone yet so I don't know how willing most would be to hold it a month or 2.

    Not Kensington. There are no nice places in Kensington, so you can cross it off your list.

    Actually I know this great little apartment building in Kensington that'd be perfect for you... close to the c-train and wine market. :lol:

    Kensington is definitely one of the places I would consider, so eat a big dick.

    Please do.

    So if I live with just one of the ladies, I'd love to have a 2 bedroom apartment near downtown for the year.

    If I get all 3, I'd like to rent a nice house somewhere.

    No one really answered my question though.. of how quickly I need to start looking.

    What's wrong with Kensington? That was probably my favourite neighbourhood in the city.

    So a friend is looking for a roommate for the summer, and then after the summer another friend who I actually want to look with will be free.

    The place for the summer would be a basement suite in Brentwood. <500 a month. And she spends most of her time at her boyfriends... which is why I'm thinking I might take it... essentially living alone for the summer for under 500 a month. I'm gonna check it out... hmm. And then after the summer maybe move downtown.

    I am going to shit in your mouth :)

    So I'm gonna check out this basement suite on the weekend... if it has enough natural light, I may consider it. I dont want to live in another cave.

    Also, if I get a job at ATCO for the summer, and especially if I work where my momz works, then I may as well live at home and get a ride with her to work everyday. That would be the end of my 'sex life'... but its not like I have one anyway.
