Counteroffer on the table for the condo. Seller met me halfway between his asking price and my offer, but going to try to bring it down a tad by having him pick up my closing costs to account for the fact that we can't go through my title company to get the deal done.

That's a very reasonable request.

Here's hoping. Truth be told though, if they say no at picking up my closing costs, I'll just fold and accept their counteroffer. Aside from being five minutes further drive than I was initially looking and having one bathroom instead of two, it's exactly what I want in a place right now. Not going to let a grand or two block that when we're talking about over a hundred grand overall price range.

Regarding the GDT, I didn't have as much time to work on it as I wanted but it is still almost done. I will post it tomorrow morning. I made a cool photo collage I think you guys are going to like.

Was offered a promotion at work, but I am slightly hesitant because I make good money as is without the added responsibility. Take the position that offers slightly more to start with of course more room for advancement, or stay in the more comfortable position where I can do the job and fade into the crowd? It's a tough call for me, and I know that's stupid. It feels like the ambition gene alluded me.

Its not stupid at all

It comes down to your personal comfort and desire here.. If you aren't comfortable taking on the increased role and all that goes with it then it is best to not accept

They will understand likely and it shouldn't effect you negatively

True, they've made it clear that there would be no hard feelings if I didn't accept. Just can't escape the feeling that I should do it. Doesn't help that family and friends have all said I need to. But it is my decision and right now I think I'm leaning towards declining.

Honestly your employer might admire you for turning it down by saying you dont feel ready or comfortable with increased role right now and reward you in future

Your employer wants you to take the job or they wouldn't have offered.

It all boils down to trust. I didn't really want my recent promotion but I had a bad feeling it would have hurt me at work to decline.

Driving home to a place that's yours is a feeling that you should cherish. It fades too quickly.

Thanks, but still have a long way to go before it's a done deal. Still finalizing everything with my lender and then it's the closing itself. Any luck it'll get done by the end of the month.

Damn pumped, though.

It's easy to forget all those guys out the Thrash era are at or near 50 now. Many still going strong which is all the more impressive given the nature of their music.

Went to a concert and got my phone stolen. Kind of wishing I'd just stayed home and watched the game. |:

I hate getting calls. I prefer texting. When someone calls me, I immediately get a little annoyed.
