My first house, other big news

Today was a huge day for me.

  1. It’s my birthday.
  2. I just bought my first house, a one-bedroom condo in San Francisco’s south of Market district near 9th and Howard.
  3. I just found out my younger brother is being deployed to Tikrit, Iraq in about six weeks with his Army unit.

Posting might be light while I fill out forms and move physical locations.

    Wow! Congrats, and, congrats again. Two big life events in one day.

    Fingers crossed (and a big thank you) for your bro.

    I’ll be moving to SOMA < a week; hope we’ll get a chance to catch a beer.

    Happy Bday and congrats! I just moved out of my first house into my second. A word of advice, don’t let junk accumulate, you’ll regret having to move it later ;)

    Congrats on the condo (beware of the firetrucks and early morning garbage trucks)! We should plan a meetup at Harvest Urban Market some time…
