I can SEE!

My computer monitor was slowly going dark, so I posted on the "lawrence ks" community asking if anyone had an old one that was just sitting around gathering dust. It turns out, someone did and all I had to do was pick it up. I am now the proud owner of a flat-screen 17" monitor. (Not one of those skinny ones, but it sure is an upgrade from the 14" I was using!) So this monitor kicks ass and I got to meet a really interesting person. I hope to be able to pay it forward one day if I have something that I am not using that someone else needs.

I walked [livejournal.com profile] shrijani's dog, but I didn't take her to Mass Street. I am thinking to do that on Thursday. She is staying in her own house tonight.

Talking to the Financial Planner today was about what I expected. We are discussing "Socially Responsible" investments, because that is important to me. I also need to pay down my debts, take 15 graduate hours this year, and travel to the Galápagos (and/or whatever aikido trip happens to come up). I just don't need the headache of home ownership right now. Frankly, it is not that important to me. It is just one of those things I "should" do, like having insurance. (To me it is about that exciting.)

I can live with what I am trying to accomplish right now. I was scared to death of buying a home. I will free myself of the debts and have a respectable down payment. I will have a cool place to live when I am ready. Meanwhile, I love the location of my place (near 9th and Michigan).
