I am an incoming Columbia student for Spring 2019. I will be attending half time and am looking for work in restaurants. I have been working full time as a chef for the past three and a half years in Huntsville Alabama. I am most recently a sous-chef at an upscale new-American restaurant. I will be studying applied math. I have one straightforward cat, Conchita, a (fixed) male calico (XXY chromosomes). My cat is used to being home alone for the long hours I have worked and is by no means aggressive or destructive.
#Myroommateperk is that I am a professional chef. I cook and clean for a living.
My ideal roommate is a sociable person who doesn’t *completely* hole up in their room. Everyone, including myself, needs alone time, but I don’t want to have zero communication with my roommates. That being said, my ideal roommate is comfortable bringing up issues and being open in communicating the ins and outs of living in a shared space. I would like to have some form of relationship with my roommates beyond sharing rent. We don’t have to be best friends by any means, but I would like there to be some sense of community. An ideal roommate would pull their fair share of apartment maintenance (dishes, cleaning, etc.) and shared expenses.
