My First Couchsurfing Couch

I've moved into a friend's apartment and left behind my dormitory and thus had to change my couch description on couchsurfing. Still, I thought it would be fun to keep around a record of what I had to say about my old one, so I'm preserving that here in my internets journal.

Matt's Couch

You're in the same room as me (there's only one, after all), but you win the bed -- I'll sleep on the floor with my camping pad, no worries.

I'm living in a tiny tiny dormitory and technically can't have visitors, but I won't tell if you won't.

It's a single room + shower & toilet, which means I'm on the floor and you score my bed. My place is so dingy that I pretty much see myself as a "fall-back" plan for people who couldn't get a couch elsewhere in Sendai, or for those who really enjoy the sleep-over feeling of CouchSurfing ^^.

Getting in and out of my dorm is kind of a pain. I only have one key, so we either have to work something out timing-wise or else you can only get in when I'm already at home (or vice-versa -- I'm totally fine with giving you the key and timing out my return trips)

It's important to me that you acknowledge in your couch request that you've read these warnings about the room size and key fun. Just nice to know people read this =) Saves me from having to clarify, too. At the same time, I want to emphasize that it's still a totally-workable couchsurfing place. I've had a few people stay over and it's always surprisingly easy to work out.

You're welcome to use anything of mine, laptop, ethernet, shower, sink, clothesline etc etc. There's also a kitchen and washroom I share with the flatmates that I'm sure I can get you access to.
Nearby we've got combini, indian food, chinese, izakaya, lots of things if you're willing to go looking. Two semi-nearby trainstations (on the same line) and a thirty second walk to a bus stop.

I live a little far from downtown, about a forty-five minute walk to sendai station, but it's one I've definitely made quite a few times.

Weekday schedule: I wake up at 7 or 8 but don't have a problem leaving you in the room. I'm then at the lab / in class until some time between 4 and 6.
Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays I try to make it to the pool from 8:30-10:30 at night. These are my only "fixed" evening thing, but it's not rare for me to only do two of the three days, so I'm sure we can work things out if you've got some sort of time conflict =)

Moral of the story here: I'm pretty easy going about this stuff.
