I’m in a cold and largely empty apartment. It’s getting fuller by the day, so it’s already starting to feel like the home I hoped for. The shower is fucking awesome. Still more stuff to take care of, more stuph to buy. Not that I’m complaining, but it does mean I’m not here as often as I’d like. :)

Is it your apartment?

Nah, it's a rental. Housing market is bonkers right now, and I can (theoretically) get a mortgage that's 40% higher if I wait a year or two. It does not make me feel much different towards it. The only bummer is that the money I throw at it goes to some German holding company and not future-me.

Glad you've found yours, even if a rental. I'm still hanging on the old one.

I have zero science on money and savings, but I figure a living space is worth the money if it's quality/cost ratio is good and you find it comfortable.

Nah, it's yours. 👻

Just wanted to share a bit of acquired wisdom and a few good wishes on living in one's own place. It's different from a place you rent, i.e. that is not yours but is temporarily acquired.
