Cali Rent & Blessings

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
  • Condos
  • 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.
