1. ROOMMATE?

    Hey everyone,

    I am on the hunt for a new apartment in Brooklyn for May 1st. Amongst my close friends and after numerous blasts to my Facebook friends, I’m having trouble finding some roommates. I’m reaching out to y’all, the loyal Tumblr followers to see if anyone is also looking for a new spot to call home on May 1st (or potentially June 1st if the place is right) in Brooklyn. 

    If you are on the hunt to find 1) a SWEET apartment, and 2) a friendly roommate that doesn’t want to live in a SHIT HOLE, or if you have a good lead on an apartment and need some people to go in on it with, anything really, PLEASE EMAIL ME @theworstroom@gmail.com. I have a few places I’d love to pursue, but I’m in need of some sane, totally rad and committed folks to look with.

    I am a positive, considerate person, a cinematographer and filmmaker, record collector, POPULAR BLOGGER, avid cyclist, gardener, composter, homebrewer, environmentally conscious southerner, originally from Kentucky, looking for a real, relaxing, home environment. Someplace that is comfortable and feels like HOME, not exactly a cramped NYC apartment.

    I am currently looking in Ditmas Park, Midwood, Kensington, Windsor Terrace, Park Slope, Clinton Hill, Stuyvesant Heights and Prospect Lefferts Gardens.

    Open spaces, maybe a front porch, a yard, a place to drink iced tea on a hot afternoon. Relaxed, country living in the city. I’d love to be able to garden and maybe even have some chickens.

    Am I dreaming?

    GET AT ME HERE.

    P.S. This is Ditmas Park. Let’s do this.

  24. The Worst Luck

    Dear EVERYONE,

    It comes with great sadness and frustration that I have to announce that I am back on the hunt for new place to call home in New York. Yes, me, the creator of this blog.

    For the past 10 months I was living in what I thought to be the place where I would settle into for many years to come. I live in a spacious room, I have great roommates who I care for deeply and the location couldn’t be more ideal for me. Alas, the universe has thrown me under the bus again. One of my roommates is PREGNANT, and they have asked me to move out so they can take over my bedroom to use for the child. FML.

    I’m convinced that I may have the worst luck when it comes to finding a place I can really settle into. It seems like just as I am growing roots in the ground, I am ripped out by forces outside of my own control. 

    I created this blog last spring, when I found myself desperately trying to find decent, affordable housing in New York. Like most of you, I don’t want to live in a CLOSET, I don’t want to subsidize your rent by sleeping in a TENT IN YOUR BASEMENT, and I most certainly don’t want to sleep on your SLIGHTLY USED FUTON.

    Anyways, I’m reaching out to my loyal followers, many of whom understand my pain and frustration, for help. I will be back in my car if I don’t find a new apartment by MAY 1st.

    If you have a room opening up in your place, know of someone moving out of an apartment, a good lead, anything really, PLEASE EMAIL ME @ theworstroom@gmail.com

    I am a positive, considerate person, a cinematographer and filmmaker, record collector, POPULAR BLOGGER, avid cyclist, gardener, composter, homebrewer, environmentally conscious, southerner, originally from Kentucky, and I’m looking for a real, relaxing, home environment. Someplace that is comfortable. Open spaces, maybe a front porch, a yard, a place to drink iced tea on a hot afternoon.

    Am I dreaming?
