So. I have finally understood why people buy houses. Because it means not having to worry about finding a new place within your budget when your lease expires. And because it means not having to worry about shifting. Which is the biggest pain in the ass process ever. It took me five days to pack my room. I can't even imagine what a painful process packing a house would be. It's also amazing how much junk I have accumulated. Jeez.
In other news - I don't think it's a good sign that I got into office in the morning and my first thought was "I need alcohol. Nicotine also." Sigh.
