Question by fearlessnessny: Too much on my plate and could use some help?
I am overwhelmed lately. I pride myself on being independent but I am a little over my head here.
The skinny is that my 2 roommates are moving out of the state, the person I had lined up to be a roommate backed out and I have no place to live. I’ve been trying to find someplace cheap in NYC.
In addition, I intern at a production company 2 days a week, have a paid job 3 days a week and a few evenings a week I bus tables.
I moved to the city 9 months ago and i just feel as if I should be doing more with my life. My mom calls frequently and I almost don’t want to answer the phone. I’m just sick of this false sense of security that i try to convey, this notion that everything is a good as I planned.
I just wonder what I can do to get back on track and be happy. I was ecstatic when I moved and I love it in NYC. I guess I’m just asking for an opinion on what I should do.

Stop, take a deep breath and consider your options. Roomies are always a problem, if you can find a place of your own that would be the best option. Given that you live in the city that may not be possible. In any event, if finding a place to live is your only problem then you are lucky because it sound like you have a fall back position with your mom. I grant you that mom may be less pleasant than an unreliable roomie but she will probably take you back. In any event, your problems aren’t nearly as bad as you imagine and you can deal with them successfully. I’m rooting for you kid, good luck.
