So... I bought a house!
This is a very different sort of adventure for someone who identifies quite strongly with her independence and wanderlust tendencies. A year ago I would have never thought this day would come, but here it is. I am a homeowner and I'll admit it's a bit scary, but I've had a perspective shift. While the spontaneous traveler in me dreads the idea of having anything "permanent" the rational side of me recognizes a house as an investment and a home-base I can personalize the shit out of! I can paint, design, and construct as I see fit.
The fact that I have a nice long garage to put an epic wall/training facility in and a room for a studio is a huge bonus as well.
Change makes most people a bit anxious, especially drastic perspective shifts. I think I have convinced my travel bug that it's okay to have a storage unit in the form of a house though... We'll see how she feels in a few months though?!
