Yes. This is the content I crave.

Went to a friends house warming party last night. Just gonna let you know now I didnít close so as to not to lead you on.

I had never really met his girlfriends friends before and so when I saw this America Ferrara looking girl (think Superstore, not ugly Betty) I didnít think much of it because there was some dude around her most of the time. So I did what I normally do and thatís drink as much as I wanted while having fun. At some point it was late and we were drinking and listening to music in the garage and i went over to the jungle juice jug to get some and sheís like oh hey put some ice in there and I made a comment about how mad I was Iíd been drinking ice-less juice all night like some goddamn peasant and she thought it was funny and then from then on she fully started ignoring that other dude, who apparently was some neighbor, to the point where he gave up and left and started hanging out with me and then she kept finding reasons to touch me and folks...I think she was into The Kid.

But because Iím me I didnít even get her actual name, she just kept calling me Iowa and I was calling her Wisconsin, much less her number. I did invite her to my eventual house warming party but only if she brings some Spotted Cow from wisconsin, though.

Ive always said the only thing better than an office relationship is breaking up an office relationship by sleeping with another coworker.

But also i wonít be asking any friends for help but might accept it if they offer to help with something specifically. With the exception of Brvy who is bound and determined to help me with anything, of course. Now almost all of my friends have said to give them a call if I need help moving or anything but I know I donít have that much stuff and if I ask them for help theyíll ask for my help when they move and theyíll for sure have way more stuff. And I hate moving.

I was going to pay my friends little brother to help me move but heís actually closing on a house himself the day before me and is no longer available. I looked at hiring actual movers but it was way more than I was willing to pay.

But, yes, I verbally agree with throwing money at problems to just be done with them.

That said I still have trouble getting over the poverty mindset and donít do it as often as I should.

Edit: a lot of it is value. I donít mind paying if the value is there to me. I understand when people say you donít value your time properly but I think that thatís really only true if youíre already operating at peak capacity. Itís not as if I could just work more hours so itís not an actual dollar value. And I spend so much of my free time doing nothing productive (like watching Bojack again for then 10th time) so spending a few hours loading and unloading my stuff or painting the bedroom isnít a big deal. Sure I could spend that time doing programming exercises instead but also that could just be the other 40 hours I waste watching tv that week. Plus, some of this stuff I actually like doing. Like, Iím really looking forward to redoing my kitchen when I get a new job. Iíve already picked out most of the materials and color schemes and everything. I just donít want to drop the money on a superficial upgrade when I might be jobless in a few months.

Got then final approval and closing documents earlier this week. Iíll wire the closing money next Monday and then we close Thursday AM and I take immediate possession. My family is bringing the stuff I have in storage in Iowa that Friday so Iím going to wait to move some bigger things from my current place rather than trying to do it myself that Thursday.
