I’m originally from Harlem but I feel comfortable almost anywhere in the city. I do landscaping/gardening! I love my job and I’m good at it. It’s been five years since my first day and I’ve learned so much so if I have a roommate who loves plants, we can make sure they thrive! Other than that, I like to exercise in my free time or play video games. I’ve recently gotten back into reading, but I like mundane stories like The Stranger by Albert Camus. I do love comedy as well. I even tried Amateur Night at the Apollo! I won’t tell any jokes here since this is my application, but I can be kind of funny… sometimes. The art of making someone laugh is something I’m passionate about. A good laugh can really brighten someone’s day! Still, I understand there’s a time and a place so I won’t be telling too many jokes.
I would say some of my roommate perks are I’m pretty quiet and don’t have visitors over. I tend to just rest when I’m home and try to stay out of everyone’s way. I always clean up behind myself especially in the common space. I don’t like to let dishes pile up. I’m all about buying general things for the household like toilet paper and cleaning supplies and I do like cleaning the bathroom. It’s certainly not my passion but I like the look of a clean bathroom. Also, I am a decent listener and I tend to give good advice that I really should apply to my own life. Last thing is I take criticism well. If there is anything I can do to make someone more comfortable or improve the quality of life around the space, I’m always down to help out.
My ideal roommate probably someone who also cleans up after themselves and helps provide for the apartment. They don’t have to be a neat freak or anything, really just not leaving food out. I do like introverted people and smooth interactions. Sometimes I just like to come home and lay down after a long day so anyone who lets me do that is my favorite person in the world! I have no preference on gender or anything like that. No deal breakers come to mind other than people that are rude or unwilling to get along with people.
