We Got a First TImer Over Here…

Today I developed a new definition of homeownership.  Homeownership is not simply paying the mortgage on a house, doing upkeep and improvements.  The real definition of homeownership should be the following.

Homeownership (verb)-The act of forcing yourself to get up early on Saturday morning to take care of things that you would have never thought about doing when you lived in your apartment.

Examples: having to rack an entire season of leaves out of your front yard, having to call your dad over to show you how to turn off the water lines to your outdoor hoses, hanging drapes, and trying to figure out why a lock isn’t catching all the way.

I signed on for this adventure so I best make it my own.

Cheers!

The Times They Are a Changin’

SO….It has been about 18 months since I posted, but I am going to try to get back into the blog game.  Here a few updates in my life, in 2014 I have made some major changes and here is a high level overview of what has made this one of the most exciting year in a while:

  • I stepped out of my comfort zone and made new friends, some have really changed my life others have not so much but they have all been players in this year.
  • I bought a HOUSE! It is crazy, if you would have asked me this time last year if I would be sitting in my new kitchen writing this post, I would have told you are nuts.
  • I have had success at work with increase responsibility and pay (the second is always nice)
  • I watched one of my oldest and dearest friends tie the knot, it was crazy to think someone I spent so much time with s a child is now a married man.  It was perhaps stranger than seeing my sister get married in 2013.
  • I have gone on all sorts of adventures: festivals, hometown tourist destinations, seeing my world with fresh eyes.
  • I have eaten a lot of great food- see the above bullet point.
  • I have learned to say goodbye, goodbye to neighborhoods, people, expectations- I credit lots of this to hard work in therapy, which is something I am so proud of myself for doing.

2014 was a hell of a year and I can’t wait to see what the last few weeks and the new year have in store.  I know this isn’t a big read for people, it shouldn’t be these are my own personal thoughts and musings, but I am going to work on updating more frequently.

Cheers!
