< TUMBLR FRIENDS! please share! >
I recently purchased my dream home in Richmond Virginia with aspirations to attend VCU for my masters. I play in a band and do music full time as well as run my own vintage clothing shop which means I divide my time between RVA, DC and NYC. I am basically a ghost roommate, coming back to my homebase in Richmond a few times a month. I’m 26, female, love PBR and whiskey, ride my bicycle everywhere, love to surf, used to own a motorcycle, know how to throw a good party, and can cook the best Mexican food you’ve ever eaten. My one current roommate is a firefighter, rides a motorcycle and loves the outdoors. We are both sad to see our other housemates leave but are excited and making new friends.
The way the house is set up, there are two large private rooms on the first floor. They have big windows and nice closets. The first floor has a large living room, parlor, formal dining room, and kitchen. The house has a newly renovated bathroom, washer / dryer, and central AC. There’s a nice back yard with room to garden in (one is already planted) and a 2 car garage you can use. There is a private master bedroom upstairs with it’s own bathroom. There is a huge basement with tons of storage area. The house is partially furnished so there is tons of room for your belongings (ie sofas etc). In addition the neighbors, with whom I am friends with, are all young 30 something couples and totally sweethearts. We’re near the tennis courts and pool too! The house is less than 10 minutes from VCU and downtown and located on the bus line. The grocery store is 5 minutes away and there’s tons of little bodega type places within walking distance. I biked to VCU, and it was a nice little ride, bout 20 minutes.
I have some random photos on my blog, it hasn’t been updated in a while thought - http://hellorichmond.tumblr.com/
