Thanks for all of your support, I guess this blog will be focused on me building up my savings to afford said house, and I get a small "discount" from work if I were to get a mortgage through them. In the mean time though I guess I have to work work work and then wait for my tax return just to do it all over again!
So far I'm not even close to building my savings up, though I am keeping about 15% of my paycheck in my savings account at all times. Maybe once I get a decent amount I'll put it in a CD account or something. Shame the rates suck right now though, ugh.
In the mean time though, what's a good color to paint my apartment?
