Tips To Find a Roommate


How do you find a good roommate? 

Well, the most important thing is to find a roommate with good chemistry – one you can trust and one you get along with, so the experience of being roommates doesn't traumatize everyone.

Sometimes, people who are roommates become good friends! However, there are some important rules you should consider when searching for a roommate:
  1. Be Honest to Yourself: don’t get a roommate unless you have really thought about the consequences. Once you have signed the contract with your roommate, you can’t just throw the person out.
  2. Spread the Word Correctly: When you visit Roomster, make sure to fill out your profile with as many details as possible. That way you gain more chances of finding someone that's compatible with you.
  3. Be honest to your Prospective Roommate: make sure you are honest and specific in explaining the house-rules to your prospective roommate. Who pays for what and when, is loud music and partying allowed, who does the dishes, etc. Make sure you and your roommate have agreed on these basic house-rules before you sign anything.
  4. Make sure to Create a Written Contract: get everything in writing (rent, payment date, utility bills, house rules, etc.).
  5. Look For Someone Who Communicates Well: It's always best to interview different people in person, once you've exchanged some emails. You want to live with someone that has no problems with communication, or necessary details. 
  6. Be Open-Minded: have faith in other peoples judgment and be open-minded when you search for a roommate – and when you live with your new roommate too! Accept other peoples differences and you will get along much easier with other people.
  7. Trust your Instinct and Judgment: Only you can judge whether or not you have good chemistry with your new roommate. To avoid signing a long-term rental contract that you can’t get out of again, you can for instance agree to an initial trial where you and your new roommate share the apartment on a trial basis – for instance 2-3 months. Afterwards, you can cancel the trial contract and go your separate ways.

2 oz whiskey

about 10 oz cola

If you are new to the wonderful world of Whiskey tone the dosage down to about 1 to 1 1/2 oz whiskey and let the flavor grow on you. If you are an experienced whiskey drinker try some variety with different types of whiskey: Old Charter, Irish Jameson whiskey, and try some bourbo recommend Jim Bean

10 Project Ideas to Improve Your Home

You know the feeling you get when you look at a room in the apartment or house and unbeknownst to logic or reason, you make this face:



Ok, maybe not that face.

Here at Roomster, we believe that when we're not pleased with the look of our living space, it's time to say bye bye to that design and embrace a new one.

A human being needs to gain pleasure, peace and contentment of being in their own environment. It's not just a matter of making the place look pretty or nice. It's a matter of making it comfortable and visually soothing.

Sliding Doors
  
Sliding doors can create the same sense of privacy as a non-slider. Yet, they add an extra special touch to plain and/or small spaces. 

And it's even better when you take it a bit further and acquire a door with a fun design. Something that stands out, making the door art in itself. At least you could save some money on wall art, think about it!


Changing Sink Hardware
Changing your sink hardware will freshen up the look, whether it is the bathroom's or the kitchen's. This is a matter of taste of course, but we're particularly fond of "romantic" and "Tuscan" looks for either. 

This weekend, switch out that grimy faucet for one that fits both your aesthetic and budget.
Faux Panel Moldings


Bring texture to bare walls with faux panels. They don't have to occupy the whole wall, but enough of it to create an interesting and elegant look.


Adding Color


Don't be afraid to add bold colors into your home. Decorative accents don't always have to match everything around them, hence the term "accent."



Take a look at this beautiful art deco carpet. It's bright, exciting and it brought the conservative room to life. 


Seat Cushions

If you're lucky enough to have some available space beside your windows, turn it into a comfy lounging seat. 

It will not only look adorable but it provides you with a good working, reading, or sleeping space for when you have some company.  



Replace Light Switch Covers

Get rid of the conventional light switch covers. Go funky, musical, artsy, there are so many choices so why stick to just one?  

Dress Your Windows

Small spaces need provoking accessories. Don't just have naked windows, have fun with your space. Yet, keep in mind that curtains ought to match the distinct pieces around the room, so make sure you find suitable ones. 



Pretty Stairway Runner
 
Nobody likes cold feet! so this is the perfect solution for that. It also adds an impression or mark to the staircase (if you happen to have one.)

Replace Shower Curtains


If your bath is looking dull, it's time to change those shower curtains! Cheap and significantly small in comparison to the rest of decor objects, they are still important.

They make or break the overall looks of your bathroom.


Utilize Closet Space

Who wouldn't like all the closet space in the world? But when you don't have it, you might as well put good use to the one you have.


Splitting the closet room by half and setting a mini office works like a charm. This action opens  space and makes for quite a cool concept within a narrow room.

Celebrating the Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.



Today at Roomster, we're honoring the words of the bright soul that was Martin Luther King, Jr. with a series of his inspiring quotes.


A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.


A lie cannot live.


A man can't ride your back unless it's bent.


A man who won't die for something is not fit to live.


A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.


A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.


A right delayed is a right denied.


A riot is the language of the unheard.


All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.


All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem.



Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.


An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.


An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.


At the center of non-violence stands the principle of love.


Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent.


Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.


Discrimination is a hellhound that gnaws at Negroes in every waking moment of their lives to remind them that the lie of their inferiority is accepted as truth in the society dominating them.


Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.


Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.


Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.

I Slept With My Roommate, Now What?


So, YOU HAVE DONE THE DEED. WHAT NOW?

Let's say these were your reasons for it:

1) He/She is hot
2) We were drunk
3) He/She just broke up with someone and I needed to console the person. (Pitty fu**)
4) We were bored
5) We had been flirting for a while, and it just happened
6) It got steamy in the kitchen as we cooked some enchiladas
7) He/She made the first move

Whatever the reason, it's done, and now the time has come for a decision. Is this just a one night stand or a possible relationship?

One Night Stand 
The average person would want to avoid any awkward interactions, so some would agree that having "the talk" as soon as you're done is best.However, given it's your roommate, you might want to take a little bit of a delicate approach. 

Alright, so here at Roomster, we're not experts but we've heard about all kinds of roommate problems. That said, this is our suggestion, give it the night, talk in the morning


Friends w/ Benefits

So, you and your roommate spent the night together. You each go to your respective beds, maybe you're both single, or maybe one of you is actually taken.  

Regardless of your status, you can't sleep because you had a taste of something you liked and now the only thing on your mind is: I want more. 

First, test the waters and see how the other person is feeling. After all if there is going to be any benefiting at all, you require the other person's approval. If the desire is not mutual then you must move on, and learn to respect your roommate's space. 
Give the person a few days of breathing room, before you try to get back to normal.


Now if the response to the suggestion is positive, then you two must set some boundaries. Both parties need to be clear on what's allowed and what's not. After that, is all play and games, enjoy!


Possible Relationship

In life, anything is possible beneath the sun, moon and the stars. And it turns out that after sleeping with your roommate you realized you've had deep feelings all along.

You have perfectly good reason to panic a bit, eat a pint of ice cream, or smoke a couple of cigarettes while you get yourself together. Here, you must definitely have a conversation, and use your head.

If your roommate doesn't share the same emotions as you, then don't flash your cards all at once. If you're both in a good mood, and you happened to share a great time, keep it light for a while. 

See if it's in the other person's intention to give it a try and have a possible attraction towards you. 

If your roommate isn't seeing anyone else, this should be relatively easier, just ask the person out. If it's not obvious enough that you're interested, then you might want to dabble into displaying a small romantic gesture, or plain out say, "I like you...I'd like to see where things can go." 


Sex Was A Bad Idea

Oopsie, well mistakes happen. It takes a lot to make this one, yes, it's not like you tripped and your bodies accidentally joined together in nakedness.

There's going to be plenty of shame walking around the apartment, not being able to talk about it at once. And for those who do talk about it before being ready to have such a talk, expect an argument for no reason. 

The best thing to do is calm down, and see it for what it is, a passing moment of passion. Human beings are full of emotions and they aren't always channeled in the best ways. This is alright, it's not the end of the world. The environment will be uncomfortable but once you and your roommate are ready, sit down and hash it out. 

And if you cannot get past it, by all means, visit Roomster, and let us give you a hand on that new roommate search.

Are You Crushing On Your Roommate?


Let's face it, when you're attracted to someone, you're going to feel a little something inside. That little something (whatever it is) will drive you to seek out as much information as you can about that person.

But when that person turns out to be a roommate, someone you see everyday, things can complicate just a tad bit. It's essential to go about things with a degree of subtlety. After all, you must remember, the person might not be into you, and you don't want to create an awkward atmosphere.

Yet, first things first, are you crushing on your roommate? Here at Roomster, we came up with a series of questions you should ask yourself if you're entering a realm of doubt.

If you answer YES to more than 5 of these questions, you might want to start taking some precaution and decide where you'd like to take this.

How to Know If you're a girl...

1) Do you get upset when he brings a girl home?
2) Do you day dream about him?
3) Do you randomly cook for him and say, "it's just leftovers."
4) Does your day get better when he comes home?
5) Do you become a charmer around his friends?
6) Are you tempted to look around his private things?
7) Do you check his Facebook page more than 5 times a day?
8) Do you secretly check his butt when he walks away?
9) Do you find excuses to text him, day or night?
10) Do you dress up for him?
11) Do you feel a little funny down there when he accidentally touches you?
12) Do you get upset when he doesn't pay attention to what you're saying?
13) Do you keep at least one picture of him on your phone?
14) Have you checked whether your zodiac signs are compatible or not?
15) Are you curious to know about his exes?





How to Know If you're a boy...


1) Do you try to make her laugh?
2) Do you ask her how her day went when she gets back home?
3) Do you stumble your words when you try to speak with her?
4) Have you tried to see her naked?
5) Do you get jealous when she starts to talk about other guys?
6) Do you worry about her when she gets back home after 1 am?
7) Do you tease her all the time?
8) Do you compliment her cooking skills even though she cooks the worst pasta ever?
9) Do you catch yourself looking her twice?
10) Do you catch yourself staring at her boobs?
11) Do you snoop in her emails to see if she is dating anyone?
12) Do you hide your porn?
13) Do you hide that you are dating somebody or you are interested in other girls?
14) Are you okay with her buying feminine products?
15) Are you more excited to stay home and watch X-Factor with her rather than go on a date with another girl?
