It’s after official work hours but everyone is still at their desk. I’m so happy that I ticked off a good amount of things on my list. Ashraf and I are going to meet our banker this evening and sign our loan agreement for our first house!
I am so excited, this is a big step! I had to learn so much about financials, loans, and picked up so many acronyms! MRTT, MOA, FD, EA – I now dream in acronyms!
I think one of the toughest things about buying a condo is actually waiting for the keys. Why do they take so long to build?! I guess the bright side is that 2019 is ONLY 2 years away. Haha!
Our first house! A piece of land (well, actually sky) that’s going to be all ours. Something with our names on it! It’s such a huge feeling and I can’t believe it’s actually happening. It took us a while to get a loan because of all the paperwork, but it’s finally going to be worth it when we seal the deal tonight.
Sidenote: Imandatory #7 was published a while ago, and #8 comes out this Wednesday! These are two have been my favourite ones to share with you guys.
I think I put a bit of pressure on myself when it comes to the articles because I want each one to be better than the last. The worst thing would be for someone to say “oooh, last week’s article was better..” – which of course is bound to happen because it’s a very unrealistic expectation.
If you’ve read my blog before, #7 will seem somewhat familiar. I’ve written about breaking up with Journalism before, and this article is just an extension of the feelings I’ve had since writing the post almost 2 years ago.
