That is what I am looking to obtain. I do know I need to secure a job first.

Default I am in similar position

I want my new begainnings too! I am living in Monroe outside Charlotte and my roommate informs me 7 days after his rent was due that he's moving out.Our lease just expired last month and he swore he would give me 30 days. Oh well such is life,i have two spare bedrrooms ready for you to move in Wednesday or sooner if you would like. I am a really nice guy that is going through the toughest spot in my life financially.
Lost a really good job in sales in August 2011 as a contractor with no unemployment,found a job in May 2012 and started to get back on my feet and my wife up and decided to leave me. Told me on 25th Sept. she sent rent in to landlord of our house. Got a call from landlord on tenth wondering why we hadn't paid rent we were always early. Brought it up with her argument started which was rare with us and she informs me she was going to sign a lease on a new apartment tonight. My life has been in a talilspin every since.
Bank called week before Christmas and said i wasn't making up payments fast enough on car so they came and got it! Had been riding my bike to work(8 miles each way) to lose some weight and get in better shape physically and mentally. Then i have an incident AT WORK AND CLIENT decides they want to move me after basically being performing above and beyond duty for six months. I get moved 33 miles away in Charlotte ironically 2 miles from where i lived before getting married and moving to Monroe. Talking about a life changer ;( I now ride 15 miles to bus stop in Matthews and take 2 buses to work and then do it again on the way home. I am spending the night on Saturdays with a great friend from church.
So i work 7am/7pm S&S then 3/11 M&T off W,T,F. Looking for work those three days at library on my lap top. Can't find anything so far after 2-more months of looking. I am fifty two but when i meet anyone they say maybe 40-41. Don't know your age or field of expertise but i have one trade and several other fields with a lot of experience and can't find squat in Charlotte or Monroe
Staying as positive as possible and being the consummate christian knowing god has a plan for me just hasn't revealed it yet.
I would love to help you start a new life very reasonably in a nice neighborhood Barbee Farms,quiet crime free and beautiful at night, a little feel of country with all the needs of the city just two miles away and Uptown less than 30 minutes away. You can call me at 980-213-1444 or email me at [EMAIL="ktsman03@yahoo.com"]ktsman03@yahoo.com[/EMAIL] will be posting pics of 1 bedroom today and possibly the other room within a few days. Using it for storage at the moment. Check it out on craigslist charlotte,house shares.Today or early Sunday/Monroe posting. Thanks,Mark P.S. Good luck with what your future holds
