I want to talk about something other than work for once, but I seem to have a problem. My life is work. I need to spend more time doing the for fun stuff. More time learning. Less time stressing out over projects. Less time stressing out in general. Derek had it right in an email today, I need to take the time to pray, and take the time to read, the book that is.
I was going to spend some time stressing how important it is to back things up. You must always back them up. This is why I need to place an order for a hard drive and soon. Something that will hold most, if not all of the data on one of my machines. I have already ordered this drive once, but had to send it back for various reasons. Just need to be sure to order the right drive this time I guess.
I’m looking at getting in on the housing market. I actually would like to buy a house this fall and move in sometime around christmas. I don’t think it will happen, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t mind doing it. The problem is finding the right kind of roommates. See, I’m not one to drink, party, or really have any fun at all. Ok, so that’s not true, but I’m still not one to drink. That said, it eliminates like half the population because I don’t want people having drinking parties in my house. There is to much liability associated with that. I also need sound renters.
This leads me to wanting to go in with the people I’m closest to. Amber, Nikki, and perhaps 1 or 2 other people to help bring the rent down. My favorite additional pick would be John, but he doesn’t want to move out. So quite honestly, I’m at a stand-still on whether or not I want to move forward with this. Not to mention, Amber wants to move in and that brings up parents and their feelings. Perhaps there is a point where you have to start asking yourself when and how you want to marry someone.
All of that aside, I still want to do it.
So on that note, I’m going to go spend some time house shopping before going over to Amber‘s to babysit. Life is tough, get a helmet.
