Hi, I'm Nicole,
I’m studying my final year for my Masters of Music Therapy with Melbourne uni (as a blended learning student, online) so I study a fair bit and require my own private little nook to do it in, as it requires that I play guitar and sing online etc. I may need to practise on you at times ;) (at your permission of course) but generally, I’ll keep to myself a fair bit because of the amount of study and online contact hours.
However, I am also pretty sociable; as a songwriter and professional musician/vocalist; I'm in numerous bands from jazz to funk to gypsy, and I gig around town a fair bit. I also work as part-time as a vocal coach (tho not at home, in community halls).
I am a very open minded soul, who loves to hang out and chat over wine about eccentric topics. I love music (obviously) and food and BBQ’s. I eat meat btw, but am not judgemental about anyone’s choices, dietary or otherwise. I also love to curl up in a cosy corner or sunbeam and read, or, chill n’ watch a series or movies. I like going out to good restaurants, trying new cuisines and watching live bands, and I like to play board games and cards. Oh, and I LOVE to cook and I would like to tend a veggie patch.
I have an affectionate 12yr young cat, Pixie, whom everyone adores.
I’ve been living on my own (with Pixie) in a gorgeous little bungalow by the beach in Lauderdale for the past 4 years, but must sadly leave it as the owner wants to occupy it. I gig a lot in town though, s, it’s time I moved closer to sociability and ease of access to gigs again.
So, I’m looking to share a classic Hobartian pad in town with 1 other person who's able not only to pay their share of rent, bond and bills, and respect equal rights around chores, but also with a sense of humour who can laugh and be sociable, yet also wants your own time and space.
I am house proud, clean and tidy, and, I like to foster and maintain respectfully relaxed approaches when negotiating needs and boundaries in households. I’ve lived in a few share houses in my time, and am well “share-house trained”, so is Pixie. So we make for happy homely housemates and we always end up establishing great friendships, many that last a lifetime.
