I am going through a phase where I am wondering who I have to fuck in order to improve things in my life.
Seriously, things could be better.
About 6 weeks ago my neighbour died. She had been dead a few days before they found her.
There had been a smell in the hallway that I was cursing my neighbours for, I even sprayed air freshener in the hall to get rid of the smell.It turned out to be her. I felt guilty for having mentally complained and cursed my neighbours for the smell.
Last Sunday, I had the mental health crises team ring my buzzer asking to be let into the building so they could check on two more of my neighbours. I think they found one of them, the other is still missing.
Also a couple of months ago I put in for a internal transfer in relation to my housing situation.
I live in community housing. I asked for a transfer to a larger place so I could get my stuff out of storage.
All good. I got approved and there will be a place soon for me to look at. It’s a two bedroom house. something I’ve been dreaming of getting.
Problem is, When I was offered this place I was told it was transitional housing. I think this means it is for people who were either homeless and or had a illness and it is to see if the person can live by themselves and so they can get back on their feet.
What I wasn’t told about this is that after the 2 year lease I got they wouldn’t renew my lease. Apparently during the two years I am meant to be looking for another place to live. Even if I move to a new place they still won’t be renewing my lease. They are willing to give me a little more time, but that is all.
I have said I will look at the house. At least I can get my stuff out of storage and go through it to see what I need to get rid of. When I packed it all I was in a emotional state and kept more than I should have.It needs a major culling. It just means I may need to put it all back into storage later.
I am going to apply to another housing provider. Also I need to apply to the Department of housing to see if they can put me on the priority list. They declined me before because I had a lease with this housing provider, apparently according to the housing provider I am with they shouldn’t have done that.
When I found out they wouldn’t be able to renew my lease for a moment it felt like I was being made homeless again, but that feeling soon past.
I have looked at private rental listing in my area in my price range. The only things in my price range are boarding houses. A lot of them will be dives. Many boarding houses around he have bug and rodent problem. When I mention bugs, I’m talking about cockroaches and bed bugs. EWE
I have come along way in the last 18 months. I am so proud of myself for being so calm about this.
So, we get back the title of this post.
Seriously, who do I have to fuck to get better accommodation and a job?
