Brad is officially moved in! He got his stuff from Nicole's trailer yesterday and so if officially at my house. He's not holding up half the rent or anything. Right now I am demanding $100 a month plus half the utilities. He still owes me $50 for the water bill. So far he hasn't given me one dime toward anything.
To those who think men and women shouldn't live together, perhaps I should explain a bit about the housing situation in this area. Where I live people share living quarters all the time.
Up until I got my own place six years ago I always shared housing arrangements, often with men. It's just the way things are done around here, out of necessity.
Do you know what my rent is every month? Keep in mind that I live in a tiny shoebox apartment. I fork out $725 a month - for a shoebox! That's the going rate around here. After I left my last apartment they re-rented that (also a studio apartment) for $800!
Everyone who knows Brad and I knows we aren't doing anything. Just about everybody thinks we should live together to cut down on expenses - my family and even the people at church.
I also live in a very bad area. In the last six years I have been robbed at gunpoint, had my purse snatched, and had my iPod Touch stolen ($300). My apartment has bars on the back now after another unit was broken into. Welcome to where I live.
Having Brad around probably prevented my apartment from being broken into. A guy was trying to "case" my apartment (a single female is an easy mark), but backed off when Brad came to the door. If the people in the neighborhood think we are an item, all the better. I don't need to be messed with. And if Brad ever gets my ring back from the jewelers I'll look like I'm married to him.
Now for some fun stuff. I found some old photos of me and had them scanned. Click on the photo to see them in a larger size. The first one is me backpacking in Yosemite in 1989. I was 18. The second photo is my senior high school yearbook photo, taken when I was 17. It's hard to believe these were taken 20 years ago!
