1 Moving out.. Maybe on Mon Sep 23, 2013 1:05 am

So..... I'm planning on moving out. O: I think everyone would know WHY, so I'll skip the formalities.

Anyway, the place I'm looking at costs about $410, with a deposit of $200. Here's a link.
I have.. Absolutely NO experience with any of this, so if anyone DOES.. Please help me figure stuff out..? x-x; I'm not asking for anyone to pay money for this, not at all. Once I get a job, I should be able to afford it.
I've asked Paran if he'd be willing to move in (Yeah that'd be a 2 bedroom), so that'd probably cut the costs in half.. Assuming he can and he's willing.

I just.. Don't know if this is a bad deal, or how to go about this. :k

It's all about what your resources are. How much money would you be making per month? You still have to eat, pay for transit unless you live like 2 blocks from work, pay for random shit that comes up (because it will happen), etc.

If you can pay rent and still have at least like $200 a month you can probably scrape by.

Yeah, I made $900amonth with a $450 a month bill and a $400 startup and I was living like a king. Of course, this was only for 6 months, during the time of summer, so heating bills weren't an issue, and my job was 4 blocks away so I didn't need transportation.

Also, how old are you and paran, bro?

With minimum wage, working 6 hrs and 5 days a week, I'd make over $800 dollars. Job would be in walking distance, too.

I'll be 18 when I move out, Paran should be a year or two older?

Man, I'm sooo glad you're finally getting out of that living situation bro. Give it a couple of years like me, and you can probably work out the issues in your life and maybe be a more complete person.

Good on you, man. I wish you luck.

How long would this be before you're all set to get out?

It could be a month, it could be up to 6 months. I need to do things first:

1. Get the job BEFORE I move out.
2. Have enough money to afford the deposit and two months of rent.
3. Get effing PARAN to respond, so I know if I'll have a room mate or not.

After that, I need someone with a vehicle.. So I can get what stuff I have and leave. P: Like clothes, Mormo and her little box turtle home, school stuff, and a few other things like my comp.
Paran may have a car, so he could probably help with this even if he doesn't decide to rm. Assuming he ever gets on the sites again.

And lol Klok, "a more complete person" was fitting. I'll probably do nothing but finish school, work, and as soon as I get home, neglect everything and play games and act like a child. >-> Hopefully not, but I need a childhood SOMETIME.

If Paran can't room with you, I think you should look into finding a roommate on craigslist (or someone from school.) It's helpful to split the costs and it's also mad nice to not be alone all of the time, especially when bad things happen. Plus since you'd be getting a 2BR with a roommate anyway, if you need alone time/or are annoyed you can always just go in your room.

I could not afford to live in the city if I didn't have a roommate 0:

It's amusing because I didn't get a childhood either and that's EXACTLY what I do with my time XD

I'll probably end up doing that, Mew. ;u;

And Klok, you ARE a kid. o:

Anyway, things should turn out fine, even if I'm alone. o: I don't mind eating turkey sandwiches for a few weeks... Or.. Months...... >_>;

Alright, so, after I graduate, Paran's gonna let me stay over the summer on some kind of pet/master relationship.

I'll be joining the CIA sometime in Fall, and things will be good. Skye will get her british butt over here around that time, as well.
Future looks nice. I can mock Klok 'cause I'll be living with a ginger, and I remember his weird fetish including me and gingers.

It's all true, lol. The first thing about Paran was a joke, but we will be staying together over the summer.

Why would the CIA hire you, and more importantly why would they want to? Do you have a background in anything at all related to them?

Hire? Don't you mean accept? I'm an artist, dude. Artists go to art colleges, right?

two things that I can ask about/comment upon from my own experiences (going to art school, interning/working at a game studio):

how are you paying for art school? it's reaaally expensive...i really don't know if it was worth it for me yet. i'm in a lot of debt and likely could have been in a better position if i studied computer science or art at a local university. :\ the advantage that my school gave me was the chance for me to meet my current employer at a career fair, but that was something i technically pursued/did on my own. i'm not trying to destroy dreams or anything just make sure shouldering that debt won't crush your future and that it's worth it. i don't know your financial situation though

what sort of classes are you taking in your major? typically they don't hire "game designers" they hire programmers/artists, and if you've got the leadership skills and abilities then you have a chance of being a designer while within the company. I think it's unusual for someone to be hired for design abilities unless they have a ton of street cred for their projects

Oh I guess I also live on my own in the big city with a roommate so I can sorta comment on that a bit too, the living space seems like a good deal but it may not be super simple to actually get a place there, depending on how strict they are. I've had to prove that I had money in my bank account before they let me sign a lease, that kinda thing. Also try to live close to a grocery store if you're going car-less, I only live next to crappy grocery stores and it sucks when I wanna go to the nice one becauase it's a super long trip where I have to carry tons of heavy (non frozen) stuff home

I'm paying with scholarships given by my school, and CIA. I'm also doing the FAFSA, which should cut the costs by at least half. If that's still not enough, I'll get a student loan for the last bit.

As for specific classes, I haven't been sent information about that. I should once my application gets through (if).
I've sent in my portfolio, which a rep from the college actually recommended me to. Said they were mainly interested in seeing designs and anything containing "building" a character or world. I also added a video or two I made.
From what I was told, the college focuses on art rather than actual programming when looking at applications for GD. I went ahead and confirmed this with their Office of Admissions a few days ago, too.

As for the apartment, I don't know where Paran will go during summer break at his college. He said I could stay with him, but hasn't told me where yet.
Believe me, I'm not one for exercise xD.. I'll make sure I don't get grocery duty if we're not near a store.
Thanks, Mew! ^~^ If you've got any more advice, just dump it here. I'll probably need a ton.
