My house is desperately looking for somebody to live in our (unfinished, but FULLY FURNISHED!) basement- the person who moved in there in October abruptly moved back to her parents house in DC and we’re having negative luck with our search these past few weeks (one kid, a complete stranger, actually had the audacity to ask my roommate to pick up weed for him). So, we need someone who is looking for either for December 1st or January 1st move-in (we have a potential subletter for the month of december).
Our house is located on a beautiful garden block in Graduate Hospital, footsteps from several bars, a coffee shop, two bodegas, a supermarket, and various SEPTA bus lines.
We are: white, mostly queer 24-26 year olds, two of whom are in a stable partnership and share a room. We work in non-profits, farmers markets, sex-toy stores, and have hobbies that include cooking, burlesque dancing, and making smoothies in the vitamix. We all keep a clean home and do chores regularly. We are 420 friendly but not a party house at all- we are all quiet people who mostly keep to ourselves when we’re not in common spaces.
You are: queer/trans friendly, clean, have experience living in a semi-communal situation where chores and house upkeep are shared, good at communicating, not a party animal/don’t have people over the house all the time (we have one or two people over occasionally but our house is small and we really can’t accommodate many people in the house at once), and respectful of privacy and personal space
The room for rent is in our basement, fully furnished with a bed, dresser, clothing rack, and night table. The basement is partially common since our pantry extras and washer/dryer are down there but we are super concerned about privacy and will respect your space (I’ve never been in the basement when somebody else was down there). The room is $350/month plus utilities, which are around $50/month (way cheaper than most other places i’ve seen). House supplies are shared, but food and booze are not. Washer/dryer are ours and FREE!
Please send me a message if this room sounds like it’s the room for you, and please signal boost if you’re in the Philly area or know people who are. We really need to fill this room!
I was in target the other day and they actually have some really cute, cheap, adult-looking shoes in the boys section (rare!). If you’re like me and have spent a lot of time ogling at all these beautiful pictures of Vans making the rounds on tumblr but ultimately crying silently to yourself because you know they only come in men’s sizes and you’re feet are barely a women’s 7 with some thick socks, these shoes might make you a happy lil queer.
I got a pair of these beautiful, real suede (!!) oxfords the other day, and they actually seem reasonably well made for cheap shoes and the price is unbeatable for what they are (22.99 whaaaat!)
These shoes are also pretty sexy and come in three different colors and look like the type of Vans I’ve been drooling over forever. (I definitely scooped up a pair of these in navy- and added some laces to them)
The only thing to note about Target’s shoes (and a lot of cheap children’s shoes actually) is that they don’t come in half sizes which is a bit of a bummer if you’re in between sizes like I am. I usually wear a 4.5 in boys shoes, but had to size up to a 5 in both these pairs of shoes because the 4’s were uncomfortably tight, but the 5’s are still a little too big. If you have this problem too, I’d recommend a good pair of insoles- these help take up a little space in the shoe.
