So I’m kind of in the middle of three choices right now.
Option one: $500 per month. Requires me to take the subway ($3 each trip). Live with a South American married couple. Okay with rent until january, february. Furnished. No living room, shared kitchen and bathroom. First and Last.
Option two: $770 for ONE month, Food INCLUDED. Requires subway trip. Live with a South American family and two other ESL students. Well Furnished, great house, nice rooms, very spacious. Bathroom to myself. Upfront Payment.
Option three: Keep looking.
Will visit one more place today in central, $500 p/m, unsure if he’s okay with my job-hunting situation.
Decisions tonight!! Leaning towards homestay out of the above two options, as it gives me time to look for a job and time to look for a 1 Oct lease. Want to talk to parents (!!) but wifi at the hostel is having problems and now it’s too late in NZ. At a starbucks now – will be slurping my frap at a snail’s pace haha. Guess i’ll decide by myself. Let me know what you think, if you can.
