Wow. I haven't posted to this in over two years. My life has significantly changed in that two years. I still open it every day though and use it as my home page though. It's pretty much legacy at this point though. Maybe i'll migrate all the content to some other service sometime in the future. Maybe not. Try facebook or bbm if you are looking for me.

House Ownership
Posted by: rasauq on Monday, September 08, 2008 - 09:20 AM
So I've been a week now in my new house. It's nice to own, finally. Got the walls painted in the basement (thanks to those who did it), got all the stuff moved in, some of it unpacked even. Had my first bbq party. Back at work today for the first time in two weeks (95000+ emails later...) and man am I tired. Good thing I can kinda make up my own hours for the next month or so, definitely not coming in this early again...

My new house
Posted by: rasauq on Thursday, June 19, 2008 - 09:02 PM
I bought a house! After viewing countless places, sometimes up to 6 in a day (did about 2-3 days a week for a month or so), I found one I liked enough to buy. It just so happened that my realtor was representing the seller too. I got to view it before it even got on the market, which was a good thing, because the day it came on the market I had my offer in at 11am, and he still had *7* people who wanted to see it. I would imagine at least one of them would have immediately placed an offer too. I got in fast enough to lock everyone else out. It is in pretty damn good condition, freshly painted and some other repair jobs too (like new front windows) within the last 2 months. There is also some stuff scheduled to be completed by the seller before I move in too, like new front steps and back patio.

I will be taking possession on Friday August 29th, and moving in probably the following day. The weekend after (Saturday September 6th) I will likely have a party (read: bbq) for anyone who wants to come (assuming that I actually know you, no random strangers).

Pictures here.

Looking for a House
Posted by: rasauq on Friday, May 23, 2008 - 09:32 PM
so i've been looking at houses recently. looking to buy one, finally. went and viewed a bunch this week, found a couple i like, but they all seem to have a quality that doesnt quite line up with my requirements. ie i found a nice semi, but its got electric heat. thats a bit expensive, and i want forced air, mainly for the airflow, and mostly so that i can have central air conditioning. i guess i keep looking.
