Airbnb is likely going to force me out of where I live Show more
Roommate asked for some help cleaning the downstairs area. So ofc I helped because I don’t really have a choice if I’m being honest. He started talking about renting the third available room for Airbnb and then asked if I would be willing to switch the queen mattress I’ve been sleeping on with the twin mattress that’s in the other room and I really had no idea what to say. I’m barely able to make rent right now as is. I’m waiting on hearing about this position on Monday but even then I don’t know where I’m going to get paid. I hate this. My parents won’t help me, I literally don’t have a fridge. I am paying 850 dollars for this and I’m not even a real renter. I barely have enough to eat as is and let’s not even think about gas. I’m not on a lease. I’m honestly freaking out rn this is just getting worse. Housing should be a human right

Before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another legitimate discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person in my knowledge of social issues?
✅ Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
✅ Am I providing unsolicited advice?
I don't trust sources that discuss "postmodernism" unless they're discussing how the right uses the term anymore.
It's like the term doesn't seem to mean anything besides "lets group these philosophers together that vaguely critiqued enlightenment thinking in minor ways and then pin them as a problem group to have their work Destroyed By Facts And Logic (What Do You Mean Logic Deserves Critique? Damn Marxist!)"
