Well, I finally got to speak with a Realtor, and he came up with a game plan that will keep me from having to get my parents to co-sign, help me take off a lot of the down payment, and keep things very cheap and cost effective.
Only 3 more months until this can possibly happen. I am so excited and so anxious to have it.
I could have had it already, but I was told that it would mean my family owns my house as well. That shut down the motions of them cosigning.
I am just so excited to look at homes! I will be able to do interior design, garden, and not feel like a sissy!
Things are starting to look up. Also I am starting to clean up my desire for alcohol. It is boring as hell, but I have been testing my ability to resist certain drugs and alcohol, and I have been successful. Really, it is all about trying not to "have the maximum fun capable." I think my problem has been overdoing it simply because I can. I realize that isn't how you party. I used to be a lot better than I once was, but I lost all modesty recently.
Now that this house is coming to reality: I give a fuck. I give a big fuck. My job, my life, and everything seems to trump the desire for substances right now. If I can keep this up, big things will come!
