    Default Female from Oregon looking for a roomate

    I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I have been lurking for a while and feel like I know some of you already LOL i just spent about 3 hours reading sungal's 29 pages of her journey :) very interesting and entertaining. she's a funny girl :coolsmile:

    Right now I am living in Oregon (originally frfom SoCal) and really want to live in South Beach. I lived in the Virgin Islands for a few years, moved to Oregon last year, and decided I really miss the beach and being tan :cheese: I'm working on saving money right now and am hoping to move by November- we'll see.

    I am a 24 year old female and would be moving by myself. Since I am moving by myself I really would like to find a roommate on craigslist, which is what I did here in Oregon and it worked out well. I am a waitress so I would want to find a serving job, and am also a hair stylist so I would want to get the proper licensing here in Florida too. On another note, I moved to the Virgin islands with one friend, and to Oregon by myself so I think I will be ok on the whole lonely thing until I make friends.

    I have read so much on this board and you all have so much information its been really helpful. That's great that you do meet ups as well. I would like to join one when I do arrive :cheese:

    Thanks for reading my long post and dealing with the 100 smileys i used :-)

    I have not been down there before but not really worried that I won't like it. I have plenty of friends that I knew in the Virgin Islands that said I would love it. I've done tons of research and it seems great. I tend to not visit the places I move to first LOL

    How long were you in the Virgin Islands? And why did you leave?

    I almost took a two year contract in Grand Cayman. I decided to play it safe and visit before accepting. Afterwards, I weighed the positives (a lot of hot med school and financial services chicks, not to mention the whole living where people go on vacation thing) against the negatives (the police closed all the bars at 10:00 on Saturday night and the whole island is shut down on Sunday). I decided to stick with NYC. For now.

    Hi, courters, welcome to Miami Beach 411. Thanks for introducing yourself.

    Are you on Facebook?.. I've met a few people who've found roommates and places to live from that site.

    Craigslist is also good, but you got to watch out for scams.

    November is a good month to move here. That's when most of the hotels and restaurants add staff for the tourist season.

    Where did you live in SoCal?

    I'm from San Diego.

    Gus does that sometimes with the titles.

    You are not the only person in the world not on FB or Myspace, I can't be bothered with it! Someone actually asked me in disbelief when they heard I didn't have a FB name "well how do you socially network??" I told him...like this, conversation!

    May I ask how come you joined back in 2008? Did you have a 'coming to Miami' question? That's how I first found this website.
