Unintelligible mish-mash of fandoms, original content, shit I find funny, and stuff that otherwise tickles my fancy.

Shit, I forgot that xD In my defense, I don’t usually go walking with people, and I was rather distracted by our surroundings and literally walking in someone else’s shoes :P
Also, nope: ground comes relatively cheap, and although the construction is expensive that’s mostly labor costs. It’s a definite option for me :P

My mother put the tv on a broadcasting of a Mahler piece I have yet to identify, and then went to bed.

So now I’m left here debating between listening to the end, and getting my first night of decent sleep in a week.

The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date. Otherwise you begin excusing yourself. You must see the writing as emerging like a long scroll of ink from the index finger of your right hand; you must see your left hand erasing it.

Life’s probably going to take me the opposite way of where I’m steering myself, as usual :P
There are a lot of nice detached houses, but I don’t think I will ever be able to afford those on a teacher’s budget. Building your own house is often cheaper in the Netherlands, and you don’t have to deal with weird mortgage constructions that have you paying more for your house than it’s actually worth.
(Also you’d get to build in all kinds of nice things, like window seats and hidden passages and really weirdly shaped rooms. I’ve lived in box-shaped terraced houses for too long :P)
You’ve got a dream house, don’t you? I remember you posted hand drawn blueprints a while ago.

Is ‘live in squalor and save and then buy either a large house in need of serious renovation, or buy a piece of land and build my own house’ a realistic plan, or am I just setting myself up for living in cramped cheap apartments until I’m 60?

Sometimes I brush my hair, and this happens.

Thinking of just embracing the dye-induced frizz and rolling with it.
