I also applied to the University of Nevada, Reno last night because my BFF B is out there going to school, it would be closer to my dad and grandma and they have a good med program. If I get in and decide to go there, B and I were thinking about renting a townhouse together. My concern is mostly W. B and I have lived together before, and spent pretty much all. the. time together and have never had an issue. The townhouses that we're looking at have one bedroom on the ground floor and two upstairs. I've told her that she can have the ground floor bedroom, that has a bathroom attached, and I would basically just take the entire upstairs with the master bedroom and W's room. There's also an attached one car garage that I've said she could have and we would split the rent 50/50.
That's all fine and dandy, and I think that since W's bedroom will be upstairs, I wouldn't mind if she wanted to bring a couple friends over after he's in bed. She'll be in school as well getting her BSN, and she doesn't really "party" so I'm not really worried about that. But what do you think about a the roommate situation when there are kids involved. She loves Wyatt, and is actually his Godmother, so it's not like they're strangers or anything. I just don't want to ruin our friendship, even though we know that we can live together.
ETA: It will also bring my rent down from about $700 to $500 a month, which will be amazing.
