I remember reading books as a pre-teen where the protagonists were in their early 20′s and did things like own houses, get married, have real jobs, and have kids. And I remember thinking how far away that seemed. And now here I am at 26 with a real job that never quite feels like a real job, but I’m finally about to check off the first thing on my being a grown up check list: I’ve bought a condo!
With the very generous help of my parents, I have purchased a one bedroom condo in Vancouver. It’s just blocks away from my old apartment and has everything I wanted (except a balcony, so if anyone wants me old little BBQ, let me know). Most excitingly it has a kitchen three times the size of my old one, a dishwasher, and in suite laundry!
I signed the final paperwork this afternoon and take possession when I get home from tour at the end of April. It’s all very exciting.
