Seeing as how I’m only a high school senior, there is no way that I’m going to be able to buy a house within the next year or two. However, you can never be too prepared for anything. I’m actually already getting a head start on my retirement, because I already plan on starting a savings account that I’ll save a chunk of my paycheck for. Anyways, I digress. Now is the time to talk about an ideal house, so maybe I can look back on this post in a few years and maybe see how much I changed. Since I was 10, I wanted to be roommates with my cousin because he was essentially my best friend. Long story short, we grew apart and I know realize that he is the exact opposite of the ideal roommate.

I could sort of already tell just by his personality since he’s super unreliable and lacks common sense, but I probably just didn’t want to paint him in a negative light. I would have no issue being roommates with a girl, because I largely keep to myself and as long as she didn’t mind me being there, we could probably also remain friends without constant arguing or debate. Most guys would probably advise against living with a girl but I’m not there to sleep with her or hit on her, I just want someone to share the costs of living with.

It’s unlikely, but we may even bond to some degree over our shared experiences in the same household. One time I was discussing housing with a stranger on the bus, and we were talking about  the pros and cons of living in an apartment versus a house. Turns out this guy works at the best Seattle Restaurant Hood Cleaning Company, so he probably has tons of money to throw around since they have so much business. I wouldn’t mind living in an apartment during my early adult life, but everyone probably thinks the same way an encounters the same issues. Houses can have yards, and they’re bigger and almost necessary for raising children. If I ever have a kid then I’l have to buy a house so we have sufficient living space
