Looking for house in Oly for Sept. 2012 [Jul. 7th, 2012|11:11 am]
Evergreen State College

I'm moving back to Oly in September (2012) from the east coast after a few years away. (I'm arriving mid-September, but I get that I might have to pay for Sept. 1.) I've got some friends in the area who are helping look and I'm religiously scouring Craigslist for promising ads, but I wanted to post here in the off-chance that anyone knows of a house, cabin, cottage, in law suite, and/or room for rent.

I'm pretty open to most living situations but have some preferences. I'd love a house or other small living area where I pay no more than around $500/month with utilities. I'll pay more for the right situation if I have to, but would love to spend less. Ideally, I'd like just one roommate, but open to more. I am not really feeling living in an apartment and open to pretty much anything else. Open to very small rooms or unusual spaces including live-aboard boats. I just need to be able to get away for some quiet space. I prefer the eastside, but also open to places near the westside co-op. I have a car, so parking spaces nearby is ideal, but I'd like to get around mostly by bike, foor, or public transit.

I have a dog who sometimes gets along with other animals and sometimes not, so because I won't have a chance to arrange introductions, I'm looking for her to be the only animal in the house. My dog is 6-1/2 years old and well-behaved, quiet, and a cuddle machine. I also really want a fenced yard for her to play in even though she's really lazy. I do not plan to confine her to my room and would hope that a roommate would interact with her. While you're obviously not responsible for her care, I'd hope you'd like playing with her and perhaps letting her out if you were home and saw she needed to, just so she doesn't have to hold it.

Me - I'm vegan and prefer to live with other vegans/vegetarians. I plan to work and go to grad school (TESC). I don't drink, smoke cigarettes, or do anything harder than 420. Liberal, introverted, and on-time for all bills (almost perfect credit, no debt, etc.). I prefer to go elsewhere to party, but like if friends are welcome to come over to a reasonable degree. I am hoping to get back into more outdoors activities that I've missed in my current city and would like to have even a small garden.

If you've got any leads, I'd appreciate them! :)

 Hey...trying to get back into TESC this fall (stopped going in '07 and i miss it there!)...

 But i'm trying to find an apartment ...like now. lol  Anyone happen to know how much the Glenn charges for a 1 bedroom? And what their pet fees are? (I have a cat)... 

 Their website doesn't seem to list the prices anywhere and it's too late to call them this evening...

contracts, internships [Apr. 1st, 2011|01:58 pm]
Evergreen State College

Hello Evergreen affiliates. I just finished another contract for this quarter, and when I turned it in I saw a stack of contracts on the desk. I'm always curious about what the heck everyone is doing, and so I thought I'd come here and ask.

What are you doing for your independent contract/internship this quarter? The front desk person at the Dean's office told me they received hundreds this quarter!

job market? [Feb. 16th, 2011|12:31 pm]
Evergreen State College

hi y'all

i'm thinking about moving to olympia to establish state residency in hopes of attending evergreen.  i'm psyched about potentially slogging through wet weather, being an active member of varied communities, being able to bike places, etc etc-- the only thing deterring me is anecdotes from people that the job market in olympia is impossible to penetrate, especially to young student types.  i need, at the very least, part-time work, but ideally something relatively dependable for (at least) a year.

so, what's the deal?  are part-time jobs or anything at all really that scarce?  how do grown ups survive?
thank you so much for any thoughts at all!

The Spanish-Speaking World: Cultural Crossings [Jan. 4th, 2011|09:10 pm]
Evergreen State College

Hey y'all,

I was wondering if any former students of The Spanish-Speaking World: Cultural Crossings want to sell me their Spanish textbooks. I'm looking for Pasajes: Lengua, McGraw-Hill, 7th edition and Literatura y arte Heinle; 10th edition.

Let me know!

Nanny/ Babysitter needed! I have a room available and a monthly income for the right person! [Nov. 16th, 2010|11:51 pm]
Evergreen State College

I am a single mother of two (3 & 5-yrs-old), working a retail job that requires me to be gone outside of normal daycare hours, on occasion. My working hours range from 8:30 a.m. -12Midnight and will vary some week to week, however, I will never work more than 40hrs each week. My sister (2010 Evergreen graduate) does live in our home and is usually home by 9 p.m. , so most nights won't require you to be there too late. My son is in AM-Kindergarten at Horizons Elementary and will need to be picked up from school on days that I open. I will require a background check and at least 3 references from previous families (we are pretty laid back, but no creepers, please!)  Reliable transportation to and from my home and my sons school is a necessity! I do have an extra room in our home that could be made available, if room & board is necessary.  email me: ali@biznessconcepts.com

Record needles [Oct. 13th, 2010|06:38 pm]
Evergreen State College
Hey. Would anybody be interested in two brand-new record-player needles? They're standard in size and type, but I can provide the brand name and whatever else is written on the back of the plastic case, if asked for. I bought them for $26, and I'll sell them for $10. Let me emphasize that these have never before been used; they're the wrong size for my record player.
