Update at 21:29:
I have just been persuaded to physically stay here another night. I'd started putting my boots and coats of and was thinking about staying the night in a hotel. Very annoying that I didn't take up bobbieflathead's offer whilst I still had the chance, I have no idea where to start now.
I need somewhere to live that is close to London Road (I work on Granville Road) - I'd prefer walking distance but will take near a bus route, and is not right on a main road (I have horrific trouble sleeping with even the slightest light or noise - light can be fixed with enough curtains but noise will get me). I have no idea where to start looking, how much I can afford, or other such things. My previous attempts at living away from home were utter disasters in the student-filth sense : in particular the time I was not in a shared house was absolutely awful. So I am scared I will fuck up if I live alone. I come with a lot of baggage and suchforth and so don't really want to live with random people who I have never met and don't know about me.
Am I fucked?
