I have been looking at apartments for rent in Oceanside CA. It was always pretty obvious that I was going to have to look for a new place, because even from the start it was obvious that Marty was not a very good roommate. The small things add up, for example I have to hide my beer if he is around. I can not leave it in the fridge without him drinking it all and the same thing goes for food. He eats a lot, but he never pays for anything that I can tell. Of course I needed him to pay his half of the rent and so far he has done that most of the time, but not quickly enough. At any rate he stinks as a roommate, often in the literal sense. The smoking is what truly annoys me. I got tired of paying for cigarettes and gave them up a couple of years ago. Since then I am really sensitive to the smell and I obviously do not want to breathe in the smoke. He does not do it when I am there, but if I am not he will smoke as much as he likes.
I still need a roommate, hopefully one that is not so big of a jerk. I am thinking that it needs to be someone who does not smoke at all, since it is obvious that I am not any good at tolerating that. In fact I can smell the cigarette smoke on just about any person who has smoked within a half hour or so. At any rate it is going to be pretty hard to find a perfect person and I am not anywhere near that standard on my own. The place needs a better location than this one also. I really do not like getting out of bed earlier than I need to.
