They say opportunity only knocks once. It turns out that sometimes it will get insistent and knock several times. After I had chatted with mrf_arch about moving into his spare room, dbang pointed me at the room listing of miss_chance last week because she thought it sounded up my alley. I waffled on whether or not to respond, since I'd already spoken with mrf about his place, but in the end, my worry about the locational challenges of Medford spurred me into responding, and in the next day or so, several people leapt out of the woodwork to enthuse about how keen miss_chance and totient (I think that's the right lj username) are.

Now, the reason I say this opportunity knocked several times is that catya had forwarded me something about their search for roommates A While Ago, but that was when I was too up-in-the-air to be seriously considering much and I didn't feel like I had the energy to explain my situation to new people. And I think that hawkegirl mentioned something to me about it a while ago, too. So, apparently, I'm kinda dense. I like to think I'm in a place in my life where life provides me with fabulous opportunities and I leap upon them like the brave adventurer that I am, but it actually looks like sometimes these opportunities have to club me over the head and drag me into a dark alley and have their way with me before I notice they're there.

Anyway, I will be moving my basic stuff this week, probably Tuesday/Wednesday, and I'm really excited because it's in my ideal location, and it's a really nice place, and I'm excited about the roommates and about having a HOME (Picture me, falling over. I'll have an actual home. Holy moly.) I hope I can find all the screws to my bed. (No jokes about loose screws, please. :)
