a house is not a home

In more sedate, non-party related news, I'm actively looking for a house now. My insane, impractical goal is to have a house of my very own before the year is out. Okay, so it will never happen, but trying to do this will at least get the ball rolling, I hope. So that means I've got to save money for a down payment. Well, I can also borrow against my 401k, which is kind of cool, because while I'll be paying interest on the loan, I'll be paying it to myself. Strange stuff, that.

There are a few questions I should probably answer:

1. Where do I want to live? Angela suggests SoCo, the area b/w South Congress and Lamar.
2. How much house do I need? I want 3 bedrooms, but that's just overkill.
3. Why do I want a house at all? Well, now is a real good time to buy, but that's not reason enough. The fact is, my living arrangement right now is pretty sweet. Splitting rent on a pretty large house with 4 people adds up to pretty cheap livin'. So who knows. Maybe I'm just blowing smoke. I should probably just save up as much money as possible but ride out my current living situation as long as it will last.

Did I just talk myself out of buying a house? We shall see
