Hi! Almost fresh off the plane from Montreal, Quebec, and got to Belfast to start my postgrad studies in conflict resolution. Hopefully we won't have to resolve conflicts. Love to meet people, and I'm on the quest for discoveries, always.
Hi Alex, I'm sad you have left the studio with such an impression (and I am also sad I need to reply to this with an explanation, but such is the richness of human interactions), and slightly glad that you managed to find comedy in your experience. Comedy is always a good therapy when one finds themselves in camp sites and tents in the middle of a storm after expecting to sleep in a palace. However I don't think there was a need to resort to comedy in the first place. My place isn't a campsite nor studenty. I am a postgrad student myself, but I don't intend to bring school to my oasis. I do things that human beings do in my house. Cook, read, romance, movies, contemplation. In the building where I live, nobody is a student, with the exception of my great neighbor upstairs. You must have a vivid imagination (a great quality in other circumstances))! I am wondering how you would picture more of a real "studenty" (i am not comfy with this word ) apartment shared by 5 persons cold pizza crust here and there, where there is space between empty and less empty cans of beer. This isn't my cup of tea and probably not yours neither. I don't think you are being fair. You are right when you wrote it isn't as pictured nor as described in my profile- in the picture, there is a simple bed. When you came in, there was a double bed in addition to the single bed. In the description, I wrote the studio has a single bed (I just had the single bed removed this morning, by the by!). Had you booked in the cheapest hotel in the city (which would have still costed you at least 12 more pounds per room on your luckiest night), you would have needed to check in at 2pm. I agreed to opening the door to you at 8h30 AM after pulling an all nighter of work and carefully washing the sheets and one of the two towels - the other one was clean already - early in the wee hours. At 8 am, you messaged informing me that you would arrive at 9 AM instead. I was working at 9 AM. I had to take a cab to work, still got late, and I had to explain myself. And you think I was being too last minute when I messaged you the day before ! As for the toilet paper, I see you have used less than the amount that I had left in the first place. Still I ran to a store to get you new toilet rolls to satisfy your grand needs! I truly apologize for the smell of smokes. Never thought the odors from my visitors' cigs would be as powerful. I have never received your message about the radiator. It is working properly now. Maybe you haven't found the switch?? All the best, Olivier
