Man, buying a house is eating me alive. When I'm online, I'm browsing real estate listings. When I'm not online or in class, I'm out looking at homes. I've already ruled some out, and put some still in the running. I eat, sleep, and breath the real estate listings.
This is the house that I'm keeping in mind while searching: http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/103-Bogue-Ct-Cary-NC-27511/6466171_zpid/
. That gives a basic idea of what I'm looking at. If it had a garage it'd be perfect, but the location is excellent and look at all of those features. The water heater is solar powered. The only thing is the windows need to be replaced, but that's something we can use to negotiate with.
I'm not getting into any bidding wars. I actually flat out refuse
to get into a bidding war. I'm not doing that; I don't have time for it, and I don't have the stomach for it either. My parents will be up on Tuesday, and we have appointments as early as Wednesday. We are getting shit done.
Other than that, school has eaten me alive. This semester is really taking a toll on me; I think the online class was a bad idea. I barely have time to breathe, let alone write or clean my apartment or anything. Pretty much I go to school, I come home, I study, I take the dog out a few times, I possibly eat something, and I go to bed. I have like...no free time. I'll try to be better about posting and talking more, because I feel really bad that I'm all in the corner and silent.
On the fic front, I need to put Phoenix on hold because every time I work on it, I end up hating it. I think I need to skip around it, or something, because what I'm currently doing isn't working. I started on a Ghostbusters AU just for fun and something light, and I'm about a third of the way through that. (I should clarify that my Ghostbusters AU is a bit more of a Real Ghostbusters AU than a Ghostbusters the movie AU. I like the Real Ghostbusters better because it developed all of the guys, not just Peter and kinda-sorta Ray. Plus the villains were cooler in RGB; you had Samhain, the Boogeyman (which is what I'm using for the AU), they fought Chthulu in one episode for crying out loud! (Granted they were only able to banish him, Egon said nothing they had would do any good against him. Which is hilarious in how true it is.) My using the RGB template is also why Bones is Egon; aside from the "fascinating" running gag, RGB Egon has surprisingly little in common with Spock. He's a brilliant scientist who believes in a lot of very unscientific things (like werechickens...yes this was an actual episode. Egon became a werechicken. Actually, most of the ridiculous shit happened to Egon. He became a ghost, he got a dragon, he went on a purple Hulked out rampage, he got turned into a werechicken, he got possessed by a witch, he was turned into a baby, and this is just off the top of my head. Once a season they did ridiculous things to Egon. I guess I'm not the only one who likes robbing fictional characters of their hard fought-for dignity), which is why it makes more sense to me for Bones to be him than Spock. Plus Egon is hot, and Bones is hot, and to me personally Spock is not hot. Spock will show up later on in a pretty important role, but he's not one of the main four Ghostbusters. You can probably guess who the other three Ghostbusters are if you know anything about how I write the Trek characters.
And hey, at least Spock's not Chekov who ended up as Slimer.
You're welcome for that, by the way.
Anyway, on another note. I feel like showing off how cute my pets are. I did a presentation on them for my Spanish class, so I will share them with you all as well. So anyway, ( here we go! )
Okay, I've goofed off enough. I need to write for boring humanities now. Jim and Bones on the road, Savannah to Berkeley, woo Spring break.
Anyway, thanks for bearing with me while I did this. Hopefully I'll be around more now that midterms are over!
