Looking for a flatmate starting March 15 or April 1. I'm a PhD student in the final stage of writing up. I'm hoping to find someone relatively quiet, clean, and friendly. I'm vegan, so ideally would like to keep a meat-free kitchen, but that's flexible.

COVID SECTION: I'm very covid-safety-conscious. I've tended to be stricter than what government guidelines recommend, keeping myself informed about global scientific research into transmission, local case numbers, etc. I would not get along well with someone who's planning to go back to the pub as soon as they're legally open, or wanting to have friends over to the house without masks on, or going to parties ... not to shame anyone for wanting to do these things! It would just give me enormous anxiety to live with someone taking risks I would not. (And of course - if you're stricter than I currently am, I'm willing to adjust my habits accordingly!)

I am in a bubble with my partner, who lives alone in Sheffield - so I would need someone who is OK with that and would be willing to forego seeing their own bubble for 10 days before/after my (infrequent) trips down to Sheff.

THE HOUSE: First-floor tyneside flat, with a small kitchen, medium living room, and large bathroom (with bathtub). Both bedrooms are fairly large, one with a high ceiling and the other an attic room. Open to your taking whichever fits you and your furniture best. There's also a tiny spare room I use as an office currently, but open to negotation on that too. Good neighbourhood with easy access to parks and shops. Small rear yard, but it's just concrete. Bike shed with space for yours if you like!

ABOUT ME: When I'm not tearing my hair out over my thesis, I like watching movies, crocheting, baking vegan treats, and riding my bike. I occasionally meet up with a friend (outdoors only), but strict about distancing and/or mask-wearing. I'm also a volunteer at Star & Shadow Cinema and have been doing occasional streaming-video stuff since the pandemic closed us down. 

I'll likely be moving out in September, when the lease is up. But if you wanted to stay and find someone else you can probably take over the lease at that point.

If this sounds like a good fit, please send me a message and tell me about yourself! Erin
