so...i'm graduating (finally)!
i'm also moving to a new place. i have to be out of my current apt by beginning of july. i originally wanted my own place but can't seem to afford that. btw...i don't want a studio because i like having rooms -especially for cooking and entertaining.
i've been looking mainly in west LA and santa monica area since i do want to stay in the area (i currently live in palms and go to ucla if u didn't already know...). don't want to do hollywood just because of the traffic and the buildings are usually run down in that area.
my problem: since i can't afford a place of my own, i have to find someone who wants to share, but none of my friends need a place right now or they already have prior arrangements.
it's getting to be stressful looking for both a place and an apt-mate. any suggestions on what i should do? i've been mainly looking on craigslist and checking out places that i see on the streets (the ones with vacancy signs). didn't want to buy a westside rental password because i don't know how much of a help that would be.
someone help me!
