Hi, I'm Fran. Born and raised in Melbourne. I'm a 29 y/o secondary teacher working full-time in South Yarra. I teach German, History and Philosophy. I generally work from 8.30-4.30 but often have to take marking home. During the week I am pretty quiet and like coming home to relax and destress. On the weekends I enjoy going to yoga/exercising and getting out in Melbourne and catching up with friends for brunch/drinks etc.
I am looking to move out of my current sharehouse because my housemate is moving overseas next year for work and I would like to move into a house with more housemates and therefore slightly cheaper rent.
I'm a good listener and easy to get along with. I like to socialise and be friends with my housemates but also respect that everyone needs their own space. I am definitely a fan of creating a home rather than just co-existing with other housemates.
My current housemate and I regularly cook for each other and this creates a really nice homely atmosphere. I would like to think I'm a pretty good cook and occasional baker and I enjoy trying out new recipes. I'm not a vegetarian but don't eat a lot of red meat and will happily eat 2-3 meat-free meals per week. I have a house full of furniture including a fridge and washing machine that I bought new 3 years ago. I can take stuff with me or sell it if needed. I also have quite a few pot plants which I would love to take with me if there is room.
I have an adorable 4 year old black cat named Gaia. She defies a lot of the stereotypes about cats. She's very affectionate and loves nothing better than jumping up onto my lap for pats and will happily purr away and go to sleep.
