Seeking a housemate, as the current one is moving out at the end of June. If you know of anyone who might be interested, please tug my coat. Thanks.

 

$600/mo, month-to-month, no deposit, first month up-front/prorated for mid-month move-in. Available July 1. There's one 10 x 9 foot bedroom with a small closet and bathroom access. There's a dresser available, if you like. On the other side of the bathroom, there is a much larger study you would also get primary use of. It has a supplemental closet that would be yours (and a second one for cleaning supplies).

 

At the moment, utilities (gas, electric, water, sewage) are included, though this could change

3 blocks from Ashby BART

Washer/Dryer

Wi-Fi

Walking distance to several groceries, including Berkeley Bowl, Whole Foods, Andronico's, and Safeway.

Gas stove

Small deck out back

Largely a quiet-ish, friendly neighborhood

 

About me: Unrepentant meat-eater. Black, kinky, poly, genderqueer, sex-positive, teetotaler. I work (Research Assistant, Sex Worker--film) and go to school (pre-nursing/emt), so I wouldn't be the best roommate for an extrovert. I spend a lot of time studying, and consider home to be a sanctuary where I might find a little peace and hear myself think. I have been known to be quite neat, and I have been known to be a little messy. In general, I try to confine my mess to my bedroom, and do my dishes within 24 hours, and appreciate the same from others. Unfortunately, this is not a wheelchair-accessible space. There is not really much of a yard, but there is a nice deck out back. A cat could probably be ok, but we might need to discuss with upstairs neighbors more on that point.

 

Upstairs in their own unit: There is a "quiet, middle-aged couple" (that is how I was advised to describe them to my mom, years back) and 2 cats. They embody the way-cool. We are chosen-family.

 

You: We’re looking for someone who is sober or is comfortable with no drinking, etc. in the house, queer/genderqueer, sex-positive, comfortable with the smell of cooking meat, creative, keeps the house tidy, enjoys down time and social time, good communicator, *no smokers.*

 

Questions? Like to come see? Give a shout.

 

Thanks.

Hi critters,

You probably know, but in case you don't - there's an opportunity to comment on the proposed criteria for the fifth edition of APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
 
This is the first complete revision of the DSM since 1994. As many of you are aware, DSM criteria are used for diagnosis, treatment planning and often times screwing people over. In light of many advances in research since the last revision, many suggested changes have been proposed. This is an important opportunity to offer your comments on the new criteria.

The proposed DSM-5 draft criteria will be available for review and comment at www.DSM5.org from February 10 to April 20, 2010.
