Late April Dilemma

April 4th, 2008

I’m living in Halifax this summer. Don’t know yet exactly what I’ll be doing for work, but I know I want to stay here. Almost all of my friends are staying here and I can do research at the physics department here.
I’m subletting from one of my friends for a reasonable amount and living in a house with four (4!) male friends my age. The problem is that the lease starts on May 1st, and none of us can even move our stuff into the house until that date, and Dalhousie really wants you out of residence once you’re done with the semester. I’m supposed to be out of residence at noon on the 24th, 24 hours after my Electricity & Magnetism exam.
I can’t go home to Antigonish for this week because my parents are still in Arizona and our house is being rented.
Current boyfriend John has invited me to stay in his bachelor pad for that week and has offered to help me move. Assuming we don’t break up before then, that’s probably what I’ll do. A bachelor pad is definitely the correct noun to describe his place. School, research (he recently presented a paper on evolutionary computation at a conference in Italy - and he’s only 19) and being the president of the computer science society keep him pretty busy, so he doesn’t have much time for chores. The first time he invited me over he had papers and books all over the floor, about a month’s worth of dishes in his sink and a pathetically unoccupied fridge. Don’t even get me started on the bathroom. However, I complained about it and he cleaned up his place really well. This does not bode well for living with guys my age.
Anyway, I suppose I should not prejudge my summer roommates. They may have more respect for their own place than what I have seen them to have of their residence rooms. Or maybe I’ll have to lower my standards for the next four months.
Furniture poses another dilemma. I am borrowing furniture from one of my friends who is spending her summer in Calgary. She’s leaving on the 29th, I can’t move in until the 1st, leaving me with a mattress and table to deal with for two nights. I have three options: hope that the people moving into her place don’t mind me leaving the mattress there temporarily, con a campus storage company into moving the stuff for me by paying for storage for two days, or, move the stuff to John’s new place for the summer since he can move stuff into his place for the summer ahead of time and his place is a block away from hers, and then move the furniture a block again to my place.
Oh the joys of living on my own with no car.
