On the future: daydreaming and where to go

Posted on

I said I was daydreaming, right?!

I’ve gotten back to a point in my life (away from the horrid, job-hating oppression of advising) where I have time to daydream. Just a little bit. Back to a place where the possibilities of life are endless.

Do we buy the house Phil and I live in now here in Lawrence? Or do we find something that doesn’t need so much work (I’m leaning towards the latter).

Do I want to live in Lawrence the rest of my life? Can we have a mountain summer home (this is a VERY important, must have thought right now: damn Kansas summers) and a rest of the year home to enjoy *some* snow and beautiful springs and autumns?

I don’t see myself living in a huge city but I don’t want to live in a small town either (Lawrence seems to be a good size).

California would be awesome but ugh, so expensive. Hopefully, within 5 years, that won’t be an issue.

It’s something to think about, but not something to stress about. Things will happen. Right now, I can only hope it will lead to places where “heat advisories” do not exist.

  1. My comments (which in no way should be taken as gospel, but rather what is referred to as “conventional wisdom”):

    1. If you think you’ll be living in Lawrence for at least five years, then buying a house would likely be a good idea, especially with interest rates the way they are these days.

    2. Not everyone who moves to the coast thinks it’s that great. Read:

    • Good article – thanks! I see NYC and a lot of the west coast as awesome places to visit but it seems crazy to pay that high cost of living.
