Decisions, decisions

Lately I've been thinking about my future, and I have some high hopes. I'm hoping to move come July, into MY own space, just couldn't be better and I have no complaints about my personal life.

I've been thinking about my home space, and I'm torn between buying my own house or to continue renting. I have until July to make a decision...and I've been weighing all the pros and cons of both and I do believe I'm leaning towards buying a home. I know it's going to be a lot of work but I really do believe that this is the best decision for me in the long run. And it'll be kind of nice to come home to a place that is really home. A place that I can truly call my own and know I've worked hard to achieve. Plus with my own home, I wouldn't have to worry about cleaning up after anyone but myself.

I don't know I've gotten 2nd, and 3rd opinions and everyone has given me their opinions about how much work it would be and that any problems incurred I would have to take care of on my own. They've given me a lot to think about...But like i said before, I have until July to make a decision.

Wish me luck

We're only 11 days in!

It's been a crazy time for me...from starting a new job, to attempting to move (again) I'm beginning to feel like 2011 is going to be an interesting year.

I just feel like things are starting to get to me, all I seem to do nowadays is get up, go to work, come home and clean up after people...mind you I live with able bodied adults who are perfectly capable of cleaning up after themselves, but don't seem to be doing so. I've even gone as far as to separate dishes and label everything that's mine because my roommates seem to think that everything in the apartment is fair game...IT"S NOT! I don't work 40+ hours a week, spend my hard earned money on groceries (for me) to come home and find that my food has been picked over and devoured as though the entire complex has come over and feasted without giving me notice...I'm tired of doing for everyone else but myself, so I decided that it high time for me to indulge...just a little.

So as one could imagine I've begun the search for a place to live (all by myself) and so luck. The cost of living is EXTREMELY ridiculous, the cheapest place I found STARTED at 550, that's for a 1 bedroom, with absolutely nothing included, now I do make a decent living, but I can't afford that and then to include utilities plus the bills that are currently coming in...I won't be moving for quite a while because I refuse to kill myself working overtime just to sustain my self and not have time for the important things and people in my life, and while we're on the subject...

My love life couldn't be better, I'm in a stable relationship that is progressing quite nicely =) Having someone special in your life is wonderful, and I couldn't ask for a better boyfriend...he's amazing(sigh). It's like everyday he finds new ways to show me how much he cares. I love me some him....but I digress because he's one topic that i could spend all day on and I'm sure that you would be disgusted if I did, not too many people can take the lovey-dovey mushy stuff...

Anywho, life goes on around here and it's moving by fairly quickly...I honestly can't believe that in less than 4 months I'll be celebrating ANOTHER birthday, and I less than 1 month a very special milestone will be celebrated, but more on those upcoming events later...

Hope you enjoy this (very cold) beautiful day
