Moving out

01 Aug 2010

At the beginning of the week my housemates and I chat and the conversation was basically thus:

Housemates: "Ryan we love you (as a housemate) and we found this awesome 3 bedroom place in Ultimo, wanna come with us? It's big!"
Me: "OMG YSPLZ" (I work in Surry Hills)

I went through the week thinking I was doing well with my housemates.

I come back this afternoon from a shopping trip and the conversation goes like this:

Housemates: "Ryan, our cousin is being kicked out because he had an argument with her housemate and we're thinking of letting her move in here."
Me: "That's OK, we have the spare bed."
Housemates: "No... could you leave in 4 weeks time so she could move in? She's family. Please?"
Me: "..." (but in my head there was this)
Me: "Ok, I will see what I can do." (but in my head this)

So I find myself in quite the fun situation again of having to look for a new place. I've re-opened my ad on easyroomate and hopefully I'll get as many bites as I did last time. I've also been applying for some places and I got a pretty alright hit rate from that last time too. We'll see how things go this time.

So in 4 weeks time, I'll be out of this place and in my new one. I'll be sad to leave Marcelo and Larissa, but I suppose I do have to get out and explore some more.

Some may view this as a dickish move, but I don't. I understand where they're coming from. I hope them all the best and I have no bad feelings towards them.

I just hope I don't end up like this.
