Moving On Up

I love my apartment, but have recently come to the conclusion I'm totally over it. It's been a good little spot for me, but it's time to move on. And move up. Only there's a problem: I want to live the good life. Nothing fancy, but it would be nice to wash both dishes and clothing at home. My current apartment has neither a dishwasher or laundry. Paying more rent shouldn't be a problem, but I'm in school and only working a part(ish) time job.

Thus the conundrum.

I've been considering taking on a roommate. I've not had a roomie in years (I'm not counting Daisy, as she never bothers to do any type of house work beyond her attempt to lick imaginary crumbs off the carpet.) I've even found a friend who is also looking for a new home. The only drawback is she's young--fantastic, but young. She looks older than she is, and acts older than she is. Then there's me... I look (I hope!!) younger than I am, and certainly act MUCH younger. If my calculations are correct (which they probably aren't, I'm getting a C in math) then I figure we average out to be 26. She's like a younger sister. In fact I had high hopes of her marrying into the family but she and Ben are "just friends."

Will this work? Do I put my hesitations to bed and jump in? Can she deal with living the spinster life at such a young age? Will we get along? Can she handle my inherited orneriness? Am I worrying too much? Probably. I am, after all, my mother's daughter.

You do worry too much. Just do it. If it doesn't work out, move on again.

i agree, go for it.

Nope. You're in two different worlds and you'll end up hating each other.

But if it's who I think it is, you MIGHT have a chance. You're both good "communicators" (again, if it's who I THINK it is)

I want candy.

You might find out your gay and kill two birds with one stone.


If this happens however, I demand pics.

I have already told you I will live with you. I can handle your spinster life!

Only one way to find out, eh? I generally find that people get along better if they are in the same experience level, not necessarily the same age. If you guys are both single and going to school, that sounds like the same experience level to me, so go for it.

You do look young. Not a day over 27. BTW, saw you at Trolley Square Monday and said hello. You are very sweet in real life. It was nice to meet you.

I don't think you would have any problems - at least not any more than you would with someone the exact same age as you.... you two are both busy SLC singles, probably wont even see each other much.
