i have learned that things often dont go as planed
I want to own a home. A house that's not connected to other people through the walls - not an apartment / townhouse. I feel like I've never been able to let myself go on piano... I'd probably get a lot more done that way.
So my plan right now is:
find different job = more money
money = save up for down payment as best I can
> get house
> get dog
> start real family
The relationship's secure, if you're wondering about that. We're 8 years in.
