So, you have decided to be a writer. This kind of work has its own peculiarities and specific requirements for conditions of work. If you have all the necessary conditions, your work will be productive.
For a productive work you have decided to rent a flat or a house. Soon you have understood that it is very expensive to live on your own and pay for your apartment. That is why you need a roommate.
Choosing a good roommate is very responsible and serious task. It is very important for the writers to have such a roommate who will not bother you every five seconds but who will understand that your work is essential for you.
We would like to give a piece of advice for the writers on the best way of looking for a roommate.
The first thing you can do is search for a roommate among your friends. It is always more pleasant to live with somebody who you know for quite a long time.
If you cannot find a friend who would like to live with you, you can use special agencies that help with the search of roommate. They will give a list of suitable candidates.
When you meet a candidate you should try to get as much information about hum/her as possible. Thus you should ask different questions to understand whether this person is suitable to live with. Here are the questions:
Do you have an experience of having a roommate before?
Do you have any bad habits? If you smoke/drink alcohol/take drugs, how frequently do you do it?
What are your positive/negative sides?
What do you like/dislike in other people?
Are there any pets that are going to live with you?
Do you have somebody who is going to visit you frequently (a boyfriend/girlfriend or any other friend)
What kind of music do you prefer to listen? What kind of TV programs do you watch?
You can ask all the questions that are important for you as for the writer and simply as for a person. Making mistakes in choosing a roommate can have really unpredictable outcomes.
