"Aside from that... It's really great." I was at a party last week when the discussion turned to our current living situations. One friend had seven roommates at one point and another lived in a place not much bigger than a shoebox. There were terrible landlords, rodents and buildings being converted to near hotels thanks to the rent control loophole that is Airbnb. But aside from all of that...

...It really is pretty great. While living with roommates well into your 30s is not the ideal and I for one could go for a little more space, we all really love where we live. We choose to live where we do because we want to be in the city. We love the energy and culture and the fantastic coffee. So at least for now, we compromise.
