$125/week35 year old female

Hello! I'm from the UK. I've lived in Melbourne for about 8 years, in Brunswick for 2 years, and have rented since I was 19 years old so I am very well house-trained. However, the beautiful old house I'm currently renting is up for sale so need a new place to call home. I am no rush to move as I prefer to find the right home. The house sale has been put on hold due to COVID19 but I can move anytime so as long as I give 1 month's notice. I work in tech for a non-profit health organisation and I also freelance as a tutor/editor. In my spare time, I volunteer as a hike guide, help run wellness workshops and meditation retreats and volunteer at Buddhist centres, so I keep myself quite busy. I am an expat from the UK with Asian roots and in the process of becoming an Australian citizen. Looking to find a place I can call home until I can afford to buy my own...which may take a while! What I'm looking for: a peaceful, comfy and relaxing home where everyone communicates, gets on well, has some sort of tidiness and don't mind a good chat in the evenings. Ideally, would love it if we all got on like a family, maybe now and then do things together as a house but nothing too committed. I'm not really into late night parties. I prefer quiet evenings and active days with dinner parties or BBQ's that don't upset the neighbours with the permission of all housemates involved. Would like to live with housemates who are respectful, able to communicate, mostly positive, kind, independent, intelligent and enjoy life. I hope my housemates would feel I'm approachable too. I'm a good communicator and mature as well as a good listener and a team player. Have lived in rental houses for over 20 years. Prefer to stay with non-smokers, no heavy drinkers and a drug-free home. I always pay bills on time and a clean/tidy person who cleans up after themselves. So no problems with tidiness or cleanliness. Interests and hobbies: I am an outdoor adventure junkie, love all things hiking and camping, an active volunteer at Buddhist centres, meditation retreats and wellness workshops in Australia and sometimes abroad. I practise daily yoga, meditation and have a 90% plant-based diet and 10% everything else. I like gardening and growing edible things in the garden, cooking all my meals, baking gluten-free/sugar-free/vegan delights/sourdough, sometimes make my own yoghurt, sprouting alfalfa and pea shoots type of lady, love my healthy eating, (trying to) write a few books, reading lots of books on self-development/philosophy/psychotherapy/non-religious spirituality/wellness/psychology/medicine, watch films, play acoustic guitar and will start learning cello soon, painting, travelling, and probably more stuff.

+++ Looking to move in within a month or two +++ Hello lovely people! I'm a Japanese national starting a 1-year course —which will be online— soon. (Already based in Melbourne. Been living in Victoria since April 2019. No interstate/international trip meanwhile.) Amid this 'immensely unusual' situation we're all facing, I'm fully aware of the importance of social distancing and respect your health and wellbeing. I'm also experienced in house sitting and share-house life, (very) clean, tidy, and economical. My current profession is Marketing Assistant (copywriting, localisation, SEO, etc.) and I work from home. I also run improv workshops I design and develop specifically to promote mental and emotional wellbeing. (It's FUN! — though no physical workshop held at the moment.) WHAT I LOVE: • Cooking (some dietary restrictions, but nothing severe) • Chatting (definitely extrovert) • Music (Listener, not a player) • Art (used to be an artist and held a couple of shows) LOOKING FOR A PLACE THAT IS: • Clean (Allergic to dust and mould) • Smoke-free • Strong chemical free (Happy to share my recipes for skin care or green cleaning stuff) • Cat-free (I love them, but I'm allergic to them) • Close to public transport * I need to give 3 weeks notice to leave my current place. * I'm after a private room. Feel free to message me for any questions you may have. I'll be happy to chat before inspection, too. Thank you! :)
