My ideal place

My ideal place

This is my ad for renting a room: Single Queer Female With Cat In Search of A Bedroom N Brooklyn With Internet and Livingroom. I tried Joan Holloway's opener and got a lot of creepy dudes.

Looking for a med size bedroom for $800 in Ditmas Park, Prospect Park South, Flatbush, or Kensington. I've lived in a studio apt, but would rather live with people and hope to find roommates who feel the same way. Plus it's more affordable. I'd prefer to live in a queer house or queer-friendly environment. Common Space such as a living-room with a TV and large kitchen are a plus.



I'm Christi. An animator, filmmaker, adjunct professor, and queer. So, I like 2D animation and gay movies. I play saxophone but never practice, so I'll definitely never practice at night. My schedule revolves around my classes at the moment.

It's not just me, everyone seems to love Michael. He's a very chill cat. Not into cuddling, but he likes to be near people. He's proven himself able to live with other cats. Though he has a weakness for plants and sitting on dark, clean laundry. He also likes to hang out in the bathtub and might ask for water from the tub's fossett.

I will also keep his litter box clean.

More Stuff

Naturally, I'm a night owl, though school/work forces me to be a day person. If I end up working in my room all night, I'm pretty quiet. On the weekend I miiiiight be found binge watching Madmen (again) or Wynonna Earp or some other Netflix show (I can supply Netflix and Hulu) in the living room. Hopefully, it's a thing you like to do too or at least cool with me doing it sometimes. Living rooms are common areas and I wouldn't want anyone to feel like I'm trying to take it over.

I'm a little bit of an extrovert, but also like alone time in my room to work or relax. My ideal place is a place with creative people, geeks, cigarette free, or respectfully out the window, 420 and alcohol are cool within reason but please no hard drugs. I sound like a square right now. I enjoy a clean kitchen and bathroom. Cool with chore lists. I never have food but I'm working on that. Actually, I've started making pies.
