I was an English teacher for a very long time and now I work full-time in administration at RMIT. I go to the gym, or for a jog most days of the week before or after work and like to have a catch up with friends, or head to cafes or movies on weekends. I generally spend my time at home watching a bit, but not a lot, of TV in the evening and doing the necessary house chores on the weekend. I have a digital piano, which I don't spend enough time practising - and the same can be said for my electronic drum-kit - don't worry, it's not noisy at all!..especially as I hardly ever play it.

I love living in this apartment and have been here for 3 years now. It's a lovely place and everyone who's visited has commented on that. It's so close to the city that I often walk to work through the Botanic Gardens. I'm a tidy person, and though my room can get messy when I'm busy, the shared areas are always kept neat and clean, especially the kitchen, which gets used a lot.

I've shared with a lot of different people over the years and am happy to live with pretty much anyone who's clean, respectful, pays their rent and takes care of the property. I don't mind if you're chatty or quiet, or like to socialise or be on your own - or a bit of both. I take people as they come and adapt accordingly. I'm often up for a chat and a glass of wine with my flatmates, but also enjoy my alone time as well.

The room is only available from July 21st to August 19th as my current housemate is going away for a month.
