As promised, exciting things
Well, they're exciting to ME, anyway. :)
1) o/~ Should I rent, or should I buy now? If I rent there will be trouble...but if I buy there may be double... o/~
I'll be moving out in either February or March.
Shut up...stop laughing at me. I mean it this time.
Now I need to decide about renting vs buying. I'll be moving to North Burnaby, either near Skytrain or a major bus route, or near Commercial Drive. For the apartment/condo- two bedrooms minimum...but three would be even better. In-apartment laundry would be a major asset, in-building is necessary if there isn't anything in the apartment. Fireplace would be nice, same with balcony but neither of those are essential. I'm not adverse to renting/buying a house if the prices are right. (and to buy, it'd have to be VERY right.) Sooooo...talk to me. Where should I live?
2) Itsa ma birthday! Coming up October 10th...I'll be 25. Even better, it's the three months out of the year that I'm only a year younger than Dave, rather than two. So, if you feel like buying me a present...please donate some money to breast cancer research, the SPCA or the Children's Hospital instead. I've got lots of stuff.
3) This one is probably the one I'm most immediately excited about. Tomorrow I'm registering for NaNoWriMo...also known as National Novel Writing Month. This is the craziest thing I've ever committed to do solo. Basically it involves writing a 50,000 word novel (roughly 175 pages by their estimate) from the time of November 1 12:01 am to November 30 11:59 pm. That's about 1667 words per day. I've got a bit of an outline, a main character and the rough sketch of several other characters. I'm frightened, but in a good way. It's kind of scary, but I've been thinking about becoming a writer for a while now. This seems to be the best way to just write. Anyone else interested in
