  1. People on IRC know already, but I got married back in June and I just closed on the purchase of a home a few weeks ago. I thought about it today and realized that it's kinda weird I haven't posted anything about the house on any social media, and most of my friends don't even know about it. And here I am posting about it on Doomworld.

    Well my wife and I have finally settled in comfortably. We're still tied to our old apartment for most of next month (gotta finish out the lease), but otherwise the move is over and I can relax again. Of course, now I'm a homeowner so I can probably never relax again. Cable and internet are hooked up, the place is already mostly furnished and decorated the way we like (my wife doesn't waste time, haha), and I'm already used to my new commute.

    Even with the increased responsibility involved in home-ownership, as opposed to renting, I've felt my stress levels decrease greatly over the past few weeks in just having a real home to come back to at the end of every day. The last year or so in my apartment was driving me to the brink of insanity, with seemingly less and less space each day for the two of us to do what we each wanted to do. Then we got a dog, which was a HUGE change to the way we lived. All that has changed with the house, and I feel like I've got my personal life back. All in all it feels like it was the right move.

      Awesome, good for you, man! What's nice is that now your money is going towards yourself, into your house - more like an investment than a monthly bill that carries your cash away. Best of luck!
