I really love to torture myself

April 4th, 2005 at 09:47 am

So today I'm looking at apartments online and, since one of my coworkers keeps asking me every day if I'm going to buy a home yet, I merged seamlessly from apartments into homes. I did a mortgage calculator online, and the very most I can afford is $90,000. That won't even buy a one bedroom condo here. *sigh* That, my friends, is why I continue to rent. No offense to mobile home owners, but I lived in one briefly as a child, and I won't buy one. I'd rather rent.

I know I'm not supposed to think that more money will solve everything, but it's really hard not to. I hate feeling like I am behind everyone else. I know it's not a competition, but everyone is married, has their own home, drives a brand new car, is planning for their family or already has one, are making $20K more a year than I am at the same age...it's just frustrating. I'd like to fast forward to another age to see if I'm still going to feel like this at age 36, 46, 56...if so, what is the point? I might as well give up my job, get rid of all my stuff and hitchhike around the world doing odd jobs. It would be a lot more entertaining than this.

    Well if you would like it, and not mind the lack of security, why not? (so long as you don't rely on my tax dollar) I mean I like the house but I have kids here I have to keep them in a home, you have freedom, why tie yourself down with no external ties yet?
