Thanks for everyone's suggestions on my previous post! I still haven't decided on what to do to commemorate this moment in my life but for the time being I think I'll just let it all soak in and if I get in somewhere, I'll celebrate and think long and hard about celebrating. For now I'm content with just being finished with the super long application process. I mean, seriously I kept thinking I was on my last essay but first it was my personal statement then my diversity statement then my "Why do you want to go here?" statement and then my addendum. It was crazy! And don't get me started on obtaining letters of recommendation. Whew, ok sorry... long rant over.
The point of this post was to let you guys know that we decided not to move forward with the townhouse. Our real estate agent called us last night to let us know the bank wants someone to pay $9,000 for a 2nd mortgage (what does this mean?) and $15,000 for over a year's worth of HOA fees that the owner did not pay for. Uhhhhh yeah no - $24,000 on top of $175,000 plus closing costs and renovations. The place needs tons of work! We can't afford that. We already offered 2% above list price which I heard was the norm, and offered to pay for ALL closing costs. I guess we'll see what happens and if anyone will pay for it. I really don't like short sales but I know some gems can be found since my dad and stepmom were able to get a great deal. I hope that our next place isn't a short sale and preferably a bank-owned property.
So now back to the drawing board...I still believe that everything happens for a reason and if it was meant to be, it will happen. So here's to hoping that our place pops up soon. For now, I'm feeling like a burden was lifted off of my shoulders now that we don't have to do a bunch of renovations. It was fun planning though!
Yesterday I skipped the gym during lunch and bought Vietnamese food. I am so disappointed that I spent $19 on subpar food. I got a vermicelli plate, eggrolls, and boba thinking that I would be able to get 2 meals out of it like I normally do if I get some sort of Asian food during lunch. The drink was so gross, it didn't taste like anything and the eggrolls were soggy. I ordered my food to-go and didn't even look at the menu so I was surprised that my total came to $19. Usually when my BF and I go out to eat Vietnamese, our total bill comes out to less than $25. For some reason I didn't feel like calling to complain but lesson learned - I need to check prices online when I call to order food. I have food buyer's remorse!!!
Anyone else have food buyer's remorse? Although it happened yesterday I am still raging about it.
And just for fun from pinterest cuz I want to go to zumba this weekend:
