My name is Vanessa I am a 34 yo Australian female currently living in Wollongong New South Wales (NSW) 2500, whom has been accepted to join Charles Sturt University's Bachelor of Applied Science (Parks, Recreation & Heritage). I am looking to move to Albury the last week of June ready for O-week, then uni starting 9 July. If it matters am vegan for spiritual reasons, but do not mind at all if people around me are not. I am not religious but I am spiritual, I am fascinated by energy, the planet...I guess this is what drew me to work with the environment and study the particular course I will be doing. I have been volunteering with a local Koala Conservation Project here near not too far from Wollongong and I hope to be able continue volunteering with an environmental project in Albury, if time permits. At this point my focus is study, it means far too much to me so I would a quiet atmosphere. I love Yoga, Meditation, Reading and Hiking; locally I often part-take in yoga classes, meditation groups and workshops, spiritual workshops or retreats. I have been writing a book in my free time, although I am unsure of how much I will get now. A draft timetable for this next session starting July has been released and it appears as though my days will be pretty jam packed Monday to Friday, with only weekends free however I plan to find work on weekends. I have applied for a few jobs and place a Albury/Wodonga Jobs so hopefully something will come my way soon. My history is in Hospitality, Management, Dental, Aged Care, Travel and Tourism Sales so plenty of avenues available. I have lived in many share houses, thinking back possibly 6 total. Every share house environment we have each cooked our own meals, and to be honest looking at the draft timetable my meal times are going to be all over the place, sometimes even late so it would probably be best for your our well being not to tie yourself to my schedule, but in saying that my schedule will change from session to session. I will return to Wollongong from time to time to see the family, I also have a sister that lives near Geelong. I also have my closest girlfriends living in Jindabyne. I do not believe that I will be away for entire session breaks, just a week or two, using the rest of the time to make some extra cash while I can. I have been a member of hiking clubs in the past, a history of dancing although that is all done a dusted with but I find I get that same buzz when I practice yoga. I used to watch sport and be a little more sport oriented when I was younger but that has fizzled out as I have gotten older. I have however had thoughts of joining a netball team, haven't played the game since high school but looking to connect with people and create a network in Albury. I know of 1 person who lives in Albury whom has lived there for quite some time now, otherwise that is it, but it is a start and most likely more than some starting at CSU. Rock Climbing is another activity I am open too and I am aware that there is an indoor center in Albury if anyone else is interested in a new activity?
I work part time at Beer Deluxe in Albury (Paddy's), i am a very crazy neat and tidy person. I like to have my space as others do theirs so i respect that. I have a pretty crazy family who will visit every now and again and cook us amazingly yummy meals/treats. I am a pretty out there person so i do enjoy to go out every now and again or have drinks at home. I have no pets but i am happy to have pets in the home as long as they are toilet trained and don't leave hair everywhere (also that you clean up after it). I think i would be a pretty great person to live with and will make the house a very happy place. I am happy to team up with others to look for houses to rent with too.
I am a freelance web designer, requiring short term accommodation in Lavington. I will be away during the working day, and home late most evenings, so I will be a low-impact household member. Rental references available, including from previous flatmates.com.au households.
