Taxi Cab Driving Private Investigator Writer Editor, and Buy a Fucking House

Remember how I mentioned I can do whatever I want? I’m going to be a cab driver. And I’m going to make sure I work for a private investigator. I want to be able to financially support my writing habit. I’m going to be being paid relatively steadily for writing and editing, which is a great start for having only marketed myself as a professional for just over a year. 

I’m also going to buy a house with a great friend of mine – partly because I can stand her for extended amounts of time, partly because I want to save money, and partly because I want a rich, creative atmosphere (she, too, is a writer/editor creative person). 

Here is the plan:

  • Save up at least 15k combined
  • Put a down payment on a house ( x < 35k )
  • Take out a mortgage 
  • Knock down any shitty walls
  • Replace flooring with nice hardwood
  • Add pretty light fixtures
  • Paint walls
  • Have studio – style house that I actually own (with someone)

It can, and it will, be done. The goal of 2014 is to buy a house and get an office. I’m on a roll.
