If you've ever been in bed the night before a move staring at the ceiling, scrolling through all the things that could possibly go wrong on move day, know that Kelsey basically lived through your worst nightmare come true. She endured last minute apartment changes, neighborhood-switcheroos, living with a naked couple and one very, very controlling roommate.
Kelsey was moving to Brooklyn from out of town and she was literally driving to the city when the housing service she was using contacted her to say that the apartment she was planning to move into that day was no longer available, but they'd secured her a space in a new apartment. Well, unsurprisingly, things did not go well. Watch the video to hear Kelsey recount all of her new apartment mishaps!
We asked Kelsey what she learned from her less-than-ideal roommate situation and she offered up plenty of roommate-finding wisdom:
I learned to be incredibly choosy in the roommate-finding process. I usually lived with friends and friends of friends, so I never had to carefully vet roommates like I do now. I will never again leave my living arrangements in the hands of a matchmaking service! Nooklyn is a great place to find apartments and awesome roommates you can get to know on your own who are within your budget bracket. It's also good to be able to find people who are like minded and a good match for your lifestyle.
