25 yo prof looking for flatmate(s)/friend(s)

Ad ref# 15313095

Hiya :) I'm Sarah (she/her), originally from LA, but I've been living in London for the past year while doing my masters at UCL (MRes Interdisciplinary Urban Design). I'm starting work sooner than I expected and realistically can't keep couch surfing and overstaying my welcome at my friends'. I'm just starting work in the social justice charity sector.

idk how to balance tmi or too little so i went w the former and definitely am over sharing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Looking for one other flatmate, could be open to two as well. Ideally we'd be friends too :). I'd like a double room, approx $850/month but I might be able to stretch based on the place, etc. Down to take the smaller room and don't need an en-suite. I'd like to be in Hackney or Tower Hamlets, and wouldn't complain about being walking distance to Victoria Park. I can move in ASAP to early Nov, alternatively in December (i'm going back to the US for a couple weeks and want to move before or after then).

I'd love to get a puppy at some point this year, assuming my landlord allows it. A garden is really important to me both for this reason and because I love having outdoor space and kind of wilt without it.
I'm very clean and neat, especially when it comes to shared spaces, kitchens in particular. I appreciate when my flatmates are as well, but i'm not militant. I do try to clean up shared spaces every night though if my clutter is laying about or I have dishes still. And appreciate if my flatmates do the same. And I will do your dishes//straighten up if you'll do mine//the same for me! Reciprocity!!

I have celiac/coeliac and am strictly gluten free. I've lived with non-GF flatmates in the past, so you don't have to be, as long as you're respectful.

I'm mostly an extrovert (I like to shut out the world occasionally) and love to go out on the weekends. I like to have my friends over, but not to at unreasonable times without warning//permission.

I love listening to music (esp. Frank Ocean) and reading (I come with a lot of books including that novel you've been meaning to read and the book about anarchist geography you probably haven't). I work out a bunch (it keeps me sane) and enjoy watching shows/movies, both shitty and non-shitty alike. I come with a VPN and access to US streaming services like Hulu and HBOmax. And also a sun lamp bc SAD hits me hard Jan-March. And if I haven't sold you yet, I make a mean mojito.

LGBTQIA+ friendly and only looking for flatmates who similarly do not tolerate racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia or any other form of oppression.

Please reach out if you think we'd be a good match. I'm out of London until the w/o October 18, but can meet in person after then for drinks//coffee//etc.
