    "I rented a unit to stay with while I'm schooling. The thing is I don't have a roommate and I want to earn money of my own. I posted here and said that I'm looking for houseshare. I got many applications and selected the best fit for my preferences. So far, I experience no problems with my new roommate. In fact, we are classmates to one of our class!"
