Before I actually post about what I intend to post about, I accidentally deleted a comment about the motherfucking jameson because I was rejecting a spam comment and hit the wrong button. So, commenter whom I've never seen before, do come back! I didn't mean to reject your comment.
But what I'm really saying even though I don't know what there is to say is that apparently I'm really going to buy a house. Like, really. Like, I called up colleague-friend's realtor this afternoon, and all of a sudden I'm going to be going out to look at houses that I could actually buy, in person to look at them and all, on Friday. I've received listings in my in-box. This is really happening. And it's happening FAST.
Now, on the one hand, I already talked to the bank and everything and I'm pre-approved for a loan and all that, so this is fine. On the other hand, isn't this an awfully big step for me to take? I mean, it's an awfully big step. And sure, that's exciting and all, but it's also, well, a teeny bit horrifying. But apparently I'm really doing this.
In funny news, I trust my judgment not at all so I consulted with my mom, BFF, and with HS Best Friend about the listings I received. It was interesting, in that HS Best Friend and BFF both picked the front runners that I picked, while my mother chose as her front runners things that I wouldn't consider in a million years. I think this is probably a good sign, actually. My mom and I have very different priorities for houses, and at the end of the day, my mom really has no clue about what I like about anything. It's a weird thing: my mom and I are very close, but she seriously just doesn't understand what I like at all unless I explain it to her in detail. In contrast, my friends do understand what I like and what I am looking for, and they know me, ultimately, in ways that my mother just doesn't.
In other news, I spent much of the day doing research for the NB, and then I went and showed a film in my class. All in all, a pretty good day. Even if I'm really horrified that I apparently really am going to buy a house.
