Preferred stay length
I'm a single non-smoking health professional. I've just moved back home to Melbourne after living in Perth for the last six years. I'm looking for an unfurnished room in the northern suburbs, with capacity for parking (street is fine).
I’m about to start a new full time M-F job at St Vincent's Hospital. My job involves working with people, so I prefer a relaxed and peaceful space to come home to during the week. I'm also an aspiring minimalist, so prefer clean, uncluttered and tranquil surrounds. I am independent and like my own space (and already have friends in Melbourne), but I would ideally like to be friends with my housemate/s as well. I'm hoping to live with 1-2 other mature people with a similar mentality, on a long term basis (happy to sign on to a lease). My version of socialising with friends tends to be long chats with cups of tea, and dinners/board games - I'm not a loud party person. I'm usually out a couple of nights a week. I'm house-trained, socially conscious and respectful of others and their space/possessions, clean but not obsessively so. I always pay rent/bills on time, am not tight with money, and enjoy sharing the occasional meal/drink/outing with housemates, in or out. I'm an omnivore but don't eat huge amounts of meat. I cook sporadically - it's not something that I love but it's one of my goals to get better at it! If there's a cat already in residence, that's a bonus (not a dog person though). My track record for keeping plants alive isn’t great, but I'm willing to try again with some delicious herbs.
My hobbies/interests include barbershop/a cappella singing (I generally practice out of the house or when home alone), personal development, musical theatre, foreign films, good food and wine, linguistics and languages. I'm aiming to give yoga another go once I get settled. I like finding interesting cultural events to go to around town, and am happy to do this alone or with a partner in crime. I don’t really watch TV day to day (ads and sensationalist news drive me nuts), but I do occasionally binge watch a series. I’m interested in – but not very knowledgeable about – art, architecture, and music arrangement.
