Hey, folks! My roommate D is moving out in June and S and I will need someone to replace her. We'd rather have someone fannish and/or down with the social justice, so If you or someone you know needs a place in Dallas (Uptown, baby!) around that time, drop me a note! It's an awesome, inexpensive apartment and we are awesome roommates.EDIT
- This'll get fleshed out once sitara
's recovered from finals, but I can go over the basics:
Up for grabs is a bedroom in our 3bd/2ba apartment in Uptown Dallas. The room's a good size (it's the 'master,' as much as you get a master bedroom in apartments) and the shared bathroom has two sinks and plenty of counter space. Rent is $433/mo plus utilities (rarely goes over $515 total).
The apartment itself is on the 2nd floor with big windows (and a great view), a big porch, and a nice sized living room and kitchen (total square footage is 1300ish). There's a pool, laundry room, and fitness center right outside the door (and down a staircase). Many, many bars/restaurants/clubs/shops are within walking distance (we're talking 5-8 minutes), as are buses, DART rail, the M-Line trolley, an Albertsons, Walgreens, etc.
The catch is that the complex is older. There's no elevator (and it's definitely not easily accessible - lots of stairs), the fixtures + appliances are outdated, and the showerheads are strangely low. Everything works, though! And you can't beat the location or the price.
Other points of interest: There's one cat, Susie, who's small and unobtrusive. sitara
's allergic, so we have an air filter set up and do our best to minimize allergens. We have internet but no cable (or a phone line) - the TV's connected to a computer and we mostly use Hulu, Netflix, and magical internet fairies. There's wifi set up and various gaming consoles and printers and kitchen things available for common usage.
A little bit about us: I (effex
) am 26, a graphic designer, a giant geek, a lesbian, and an atheist. sitara
's 23, a student and part-time tutor, also a giant geek, straight-ish, and Muslim. We're both pretty introverted.
We're also both politically leftist and serious about social justice. We're trying to keep our space as safe as possible, so if you're not down with said leftism/social justice (and we're vocal about it) we are not the roommates for you.
If you are, and are looking for a comfortable, low-priced apartment and two friendly, groovy roommates, sweet! Send me a PM or email me at teawise -at- gmail.com.
