now i don't know if i can even get the house. i could just cry.
i have to buy a new computer now. mine burnt out tonite. i'm on my brother's right now.
i had JUST enough for my down payment on the house, EXACTLY what i needed, and now i have to drop money on a new computer and i'm not going to have what i was supposed to have.
i'm so upset.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

Oh, no! We're all pulling for you! Sometimes you just know it's right, and when we bought this house it looked like we wouldn't get it. Remember you can always use the computer at the library or friends' houses and they're getting cheaper every day,where a home is in an entire different category: A home is stability, a home is life. To the people you work for or meet, owning your home is an asset that puts you in a different category from anyone who doesn't. You can get the computer later, but a home that calls to you (buy me! Buy Me! BUY ME!) will have a place in your heart forever. If this passes you by for whatever reason, you're still young (at 24 I didn't think I'd ever own my home, and here I am, owning mine outright). Have a good cry and move on. But a choice between your own home and a computer is a nonstarter. Get that house, then work your butt off to keep it and eventually get the computer. Libraries are great.
