My baby brother turned 21 today. Wow…
I feel old. I remember when Mom brought him home from the hospital. I was 8 1/2.
I’ll be 30 in 3 months and 21 days. That’s a rather sobering thought at times.
So, since I mentioned it at dinner to friends, I’ll mention it here; cast it out into the universe as it were:
I’m hereby stating that I intend to stay in this apartment another year (when my lease renews this summer), at most two, and after that buy a home. I have no plans to remarry or start a family in the conventional sense (urban tribes notwithstanding lol), and I pay in rent very close to many people’s mortgages, so there’s really no reason not to take this next step. So I’ll take these many months to work on rebuilding my credit and start putting aside something, even a little bit, towards an eventual downpayment or new furniture or paint, whatever, for when that time comes. There. I said it. Guess I’ll have to really do it now 😉
