I got into Widener Law and the person I'm moving with just got into Temple for his MSW, and now we have to relocate from southern NJ to Harrisburg, PA. I'm looking for apartments via Craigslist, and it seems relatively cheap to live there but I know NOTHING about Harrisburg. Is anyone familiar with the area? He's finishing up his year contract with Americorps so he won't be able to move until September. Should I move in May by myself to have everything settled before classes start, or just wait?
Basically this is the first time I'm moving to my own place and having to be responsible for rent and bills, etc. so any pointers would be really awesome!
Also, the person I'm moving in with is my ex SO (just broke up about a month ago). Have you ever lived with an ex? We dated for 2 years, we're best friends, and so far we haven't had any issues, but all my friends think this is insane. TQC, is this a dumb idea?
