Kimmie on Sep 06, 2018:
I'm thinking of moving here with my boyfriend. I want a chance to start over.
I'm 21yrs (we both are) and I have three kitties.
I'm looking to rent a 1-2bdrm, 1.5 bath and preferably an apartment, condo or bungalow. Must be somewhat handicapable (elevator, no ramps or anything).
**I am also petrified of insects (of ALL kinds). So what's the bug life like in Laval?
I want to go to college and I will need a job. Also, my boyfriend needs to finish Gr. 12 and get his diploma.

I'm living in a toxic environment and I have no life (and our mental/physical health is declining, rapidly) because of it.

I believe in spreading positive vibes everywhere I go, and this house sucks that out of me.

If someone would reach out to me @ KimmieKiNz1997@gmail.com
(NO SPAM. THIS IS MY PROFESSIONAL EMAIL)
I would love to open up a discussion about life in "Laval".
It sounds "lavally" hahaha

I just want us to be a happy family and safe together. Not stressed, scared and cramped up in one room (in a basement) of a borderline-abusive household.

Please get back to me, someone who lives here or knows about life there.
