The New Pad

I am finally moved in to the new place here in B-Ham. Everything is set up (except I need to get a small desk for the bedroom) and looks decent… I think. Next big step is to get a job! Anyone in the Bellingham area want to hire me? I also went to church for the first time since moving in. I really liked it and I even met up with a friend from Regent there that I hadn’t seen in a long time. That was nice as it is always cool to see a knowing face at a new church. (PS. Dana Little was part of the worship team there, thought that was very cool! Not sure if she saw me or not, I just hope she doesn’t think I am a stalker or anything! ;) )

Here are a few pic of the place (clickable of course):

My Books

My bedroom (imagine a desk on the wall)

So there ya have it folks. Stop by and say hi!

    Real nice setup! I remember the apartment life well. Don’t miss it though. It is wonderful to have your own house.

    Looks fantastic!! Where abouts in Bellingham? Love that town. TONS of great used bookstores…mmm…and the sandwiches at the Colophon cafe…mmm…and there’s this ice cream place that makes it right there…I can’t remember the name, but it’s amazing. (I have friends who like driving and they drive from NORTH VAN to Bellingham for this ice cream!)

    Anyway, happy new home to you!!

    Looks good Matt - Ya know we have a great roll top desk for the big empty space in the bedroom.

    Yeah, I do look forward to the time when I can get a house… many, many years down the road.

    I live off of Lakeway, about 8 blocks past Fred Meyer. I guess I will have have to find your ice cream place! If you remember the name, be sure to let me know!

    Haha, I was hoping for something a bit smaller than the rolltop… thanks though!

    Live the carefree apartment life as long as you can. No weekends spent on yardwork, no expensive repairs to worry about.

    Unless of course, you get in on the front end of a real estate bubble and then sell off at the peak, make tons of money, and retire to a small country cottage that has a handyman/groundskeeper.

    Yay for being carefree!

    Haha, I will have to look into this “real estate bubble” thing and invest all that extra capital I have around. Have any I could “borrow”… and by “borrow” I mean “take and lose in the ‘real estate bubble’”.

    Matt, place looks great. I know about where it is. You need to spend a lot of time at Lake Whatcom this summer, the park is great!!
    Hope to see you soon.

    Yeah, I am hoping to explore a lot of the area soon!

    Yay for lots of books indeed!

    Um, ironically, all my capital is tied up in real estate right now.

    Well you could always hand that over to me…

    Hmm. I sense there might be a few flaws in that plan. Like the “having to sleep under my desk at work then” flaw.

    That is part of the risk you take in the real estate game. You will just have to learn to live with it.
