This past weekend, I moved yet another time. This is my 9th roommate, since February 2013. That’s when I moved from Oakland Park to Hollywood, Florida, where I lived for six months with Marika (1). In September, I moved to Delray Beach with Kat (2). On December 15, I moved to Atlanta with my daughter Mimi (3). I stayed there until July 2015, when I moved with Brad (4) in his rented house. By October 1, 2015, I moved with my brother Carlton (5) in West Palm Beach.
In December 2015, I moved to my father’s house (6) for one month. Then, on January 15, 2016, I moved to Sunrise, Florida, with my friend Sherry (7). I stayed there for 8 months, until August 13, when I moved, again. I went to Atlanta for two weeks and, when I returned , I moved to Boynton Beach with Michelle (8). I stayed there from September 3 until November 27, when I moved to Delray Beach with Sylvie (9).
Most of all, I must be appreciative of having nine people who cared enough about me to share their home with me. Although I miss having my own place, I have had a wonderful time sharing ideas and stories with my roommates. Once I complete my doctorate in 2017, I will earn enough as an adjunct professor of Speech and Business to get my own place. Until then, I’m grateful for a roof over my head and a clean, comfortable bed to sleep in. Having a nice bathroom and kitchen is so important. Life is grand when you have what you need and good people to share it with.
