Today, I hung out with my crush for half a day.
While we’re at the gym on the treadmill, the topic of conversation was these ridiculous $4 million dollar homes in California.
He asked me what would I do: would I get a cheap house out in the middle of nowhere that’s huge but there’s no good places to eat and no places to hang out at or would I get an apartment in the city where there’s lots of restaurants and places to hang out at?
We both agreed – an apartment in the city.
I personally know some people who got a huge house in the middle of nowhere and they have to commute to work an hour and a half to and back every single day. I said I’m not doing that!
I asked him, how are we ever going to get our $4 million dollar home? I’m not going to waste $1 million dollars on a crappy shack house, either. I’d like a nice home after we worked so hard for that money.
I told him the options are:
- mobile homes
- Town houses
- and staying at our parents for now
I’d be content with a Town Home or Condo when we’re ready to get one – I don’t have to get a $4 million dollar house. He agreed that we’ll probably get a Condo or Town House.
I don’t know what is congress and the senate doing in California, but it doesn’t seem like they’re doing anything to lower the prices here of the homes. NO ONE I KNOW MAKES A MILLION DOLLARS. EVEN THE PEOPLE I KNOW THAT HAVE THE HIGHEST PAY JOBS DON’T MAKE ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN A YEAR. They’d solve homelessness if they didn’t make rent so high – seriously! Someone who makes $15-$20 an hour could get their own apartment with no roommates if they’d just lower the rent.
If I didn’t know anyone here, I couldn’t accept the low pay job that I’m at!!!
I had two job offers – one had a higher pay but no future. The lower pay job I started out at entry level, but I can advance so I took the lower pay job for the experience. It’s not about the money for me. It’s if I’m getting the right experiences or not.
If I keep staying at this low pay job, it’s going to take forever getting our $4 million dollar home.
