Hey! Need a new housemate? Would you like a 31yo musician / vocal coach / artist who is financially responsible, friendly, playful, very clean & considerate, and considers good communication a priority? Want to maybe build something beautiful together, dance in the kitchen and support & celebrate each other? Read on!
I generally go by my surname, call me Tilley! (she/her)
I’m originally from here, just moved back from Melbourne. (Completed my 2 week quarantine and have negative COVID test results.)
At this stage I’ll be staying in Hobart til about Feb, possibly longer, we’ll see.
The house I'm looking for will have:
Decent sunlight, decent insulation/heating, somewhere off street for me to secure my small motorbike (this can be shed or just a side path or backyard).
If the room included BIR, bed, desk, or any other furniture that’d be super helpful, but not essential.
I just need enough space for a bed, some storage, some rolling-on-the-floor space, and a desk - or, if the house has a shared office space I could use, that’d be awesome! I’m working from home teaching voice via video call at the moment, only about 5-15hrs a week.
Hoping to live with at least 2 others, who are not all male.
Hoping to be less than 10min walk away from PT.
Keen to continue living without much TV, (Netflix is ok, just not heaps of commercial TV/sports/TV on just as background noise)
My desired home vibe:
Clean, communicative, kind, collaborative, caring, compassionate... and maybe this time a little bit communal? (I've sampled the household-dinners-together vibe at friends' places recently and decided I'm super into it, not essential though).
Love a social house with friends coming over for activities, dinners & movie nights, but not a "party house" (occasional parties are fine! Just not people over getting smashed every weekend.) My home is my sanctuary and I love my alone time and downtime but also, being connected to others is what makes me feel alive.
I’d be up for trips to nature especially, having just moved back from 5 years in Melbourne!
But this isn’t essential - I know everyone has their own busy lives, just saying I’m up for joining up for fun times if that’s your vibe.
More about me:
Queer, left-leaning politics, intersectional feminism, currently learning about what it means to be antiracist. Friendly, silly/a total dork, love art/music, real-life philosophy & learning about people & psychology.
I'm always singing or listening to music but happy to be asked to be quiet when needed.
Usual hours: in bed by 12ish and up around 8am, though it varies.
Been renting since age 17, never had bond withheld, never had issues paying rent or bills.
I do eat meat, although I am keen to learn more vego recipes/work towards being vego at home. Don't care what you eat, just don't cook fish in the microwave plz (ew).
I’m happy to help out in the garden (limited experience / knowledge but can follow instructions!) and with watering houseplants (v sad I had to leave my green babies back in Melbs).
We are hopefully all:
- Capable of honest, open and clear communication like adults... when something is bothering you you can bring it up and we can negotiate any issues in a collaborative way... no passive aggressive notes or silent treatment. Setting boundaries verbally in a timely manner is cool.
- Considerate, clean. Do our share, wiping surfaces after cooking/eating and doing dishes usually straight after eating, etc
- Environmentally and energy usage conscious (tending to put some layers on first), but also not stingy, ok with putting on the heating when it’s cold.
- Careful with security (diligent with locking doors & windows when leaving).
- Keen to know our neighbours & feel connected to community.
- Not big drinkers or heavy partiers.
- Not working nights and needing to sleep all day (as I will often be making/playing music in the daytime).
Bonus points if the home has a piano and/or a bath!
Bonus points for any creative types!
If you’d describe yourself as a “balanced” person, who doesn’t over-identify with a particular subculture but has varied interests, this might be a good match.
Final note: Sadly incense, sage, palo santo etc all make me quite ill, so you’d need to be ok with not using these.
If this sounds like a good match, let me know when I can check out the place and meet everyone!
