It's Almost October!

Sunday, September 29, 2019

I found out yesterday that my best friend Denise is interested in a house that works for the both of us (distance-wise for both our jobs)!!! :D I really hope she gets this house! Her dad is going to contact the realtor so they can go look at the house. Her loan approval letter expires on October 29th, so she asked if I would be willing to wait to see if she can get a house by then, and if she does, can I wait a month until the buying process is over? I said yes. She said that if she can't get a house by then, then she would be willing to rent a place with me. But I thought about it, and I honestly don't think I can even afford to split a 2 bedroom apartment with her (rent in Los Angeles is outrageous). For now, I have decided to at least wait until the end of October to see if she can get a house by then (or at least is in the process of doing so), and go from there.

My parents and I are fine now. Even though we fight from time to time, in the end, we are family, and our love is unconditional. :) And even though I truly don't believe my dad is a good person, he is my dad after all, and I love him, and only want good things for him.

If Denise doesn't get a house by the end of next month, I am thinking about renting a room from a stranger. But I honestly don't think this would be good, because I had really bad luck renting rooms from strangers when I was in college...the first time, I lived with an elderly couple, and the husband made unwanted advances toward me when his wife wasn't home. :( The second time, I lived with a lady that turned out to be schizophrenic! So, when I left college, I promised myself that from then on, I would only live with family, or have my own place. I know that Denise is not my family, but we are very close (like sisters), and I know that she is a good person, so I am okay living with her. We'll see what happens.

After some thought, I have decided that I am no longer going to be so open with my finances with others (online and off). Some things are personal! I'm not even going to be open with my parents, because I am afraid that they will try to somehow take my money.

I am thinking of taking my ad off Craigslist.

I might get another straight perm this Friday (I'm off). I think I might go to a Korean salon this time (I usually go to a Japanese one).

    That's smart about your finances. Also I hope you get the place.

    Nice that things were resolved -- at least for now-- with your parents. Fingers crossed that the house which works for both you and Denise comes to be.

    Glad to hear things settled out with your parents. I think you should take the add off for now until after what you find out with your friend. No use adding thoughts of moving elsewhere until she knows for sure.
    Enjoy your Friday off emoticon
