About the housemates:
Carrie (47), is a down-to-earth purveyor of good times and positive vibrations. When she’s not handling the Human Resources duties of her corporate life (while working from home) or crunching numbers on the side, she is eager to learn new things, explore unknown places, or try her hand at a crafty endeavor. Some of her favorite pastimes include prancing aka dancing, enjoying & playing music, hiking and gardening. Carrie is happiest when found in nature where she is surrounded by water and trees… and breathing.
Billy (50), is a yoga practitioner & musician (guitar, DJ, music production), active with multiple non-profit organizations serving people impacted by the justice system. Laid back with a zest for life, he is equally at home at home, in the kitchen, at the beach, at a yoga studio, on a trail, at a festival, or wherever good times, good vibes and adventure are to be discovered…
About you: Qualities of a great housemate match include the following…
Male, Female, or Non-Binary, sorry no couples
Please be kind, considerate, courteous to housemates and neighbors
Gainfully Employed, must be financially secure (work from home is ok – shared living spaces are not to be used as regular work spaces – please plan to work primarily in your bedroom)
Please have a regular to semi-regular mindfulness practice (meditation, yoga, etc.)
Please enjoy a variety of high vibration music
Please value diversity
Please be mature (regardless of age) and consciously working to maintain emotional stability and healthy relationships.
Creative, collaborative types are desirable
Please be neat, tidy & considerate
Community spaces are to be kept neat, clean, presentable and welcoming
“moop free” environments. All housemates are expected to practice “leave it better, leave it more beautiful than you found it!” as a rule of thumb.
Vegetarian / Vegan diet preferred (Omnivores ok)
Musical taste: Eclectic, high vibrational styles preferred, (from kirtan and meditation music to house & techno to rock & hip hop to reggae & world; mainly Non-commercial radio stations: KCRW, KXLU, KJZZ, & Classical KUSC, etc.)
Please have positive vibrations: be conscious & conscientious of others and your surroundings
Understanding positive psychology, especially as it pertains to conflict resolution
This does not equate to fostering “toxic positivity”
Understand balance of being team oriented/social with respecting personal space/privacy of housemates
420 friendly; please know how to party responsibly and have healthy work/life/party balance
Overnight guests are ok, please be respectful
Sorry, no cigarette smokers
Sorry, no furry pets
The ideal living situation would involve all housemates participating in:
· Semi-regular house meetings and group decision-making
· Fairly regular shared meals (preferably at least once a week)
· Direct communication and active conflict resolution
· System of organized household chore rotation
· Eco-Conscious Living “green”-mindedness: recycling, composting, gardening …there’s plenty of space in the backyard to utilize your green thumb.
The community that we intend to create will value diversity, foster creativity, and be queer and poly-friendly. With respect to ethical and other dietary restrictions, we would prefer to have a vegetarian kitchen, however this is not a deal-breaker.
All in all, we crave a household with some structure, but don’t want it to be overbearing or stifling. We wish to foster a sense of community, share new experiences, have fun, and enrich our lives and the lives of our community.
