Settlement for my unit takes place at 2:30pm today. Unfortunately, due to the extra-long weekend, the money won't get processed until next Tuesday. But I have a savings account all ready for it! :)

It's a little bit scary, actually. I mean, I've had that place for around 10 years, and while I only lived in it for 6 months (and had a horrible time with tenants for the first five years) it's been a big staple of my life for all that time. Selling it and moving on is a bit like, well, growing up.

It's funny. I already did this when I was 18 - moving out of home to another city - and then again when I was 21 - buying a house with some friends. And yet again when I was 24 and moved back to Sydney.

And yet there's still a part of me that thinks: "Can't I just go back to how it used to be?"

There's a lot of psychological conflict floating around in my head right now. Most of it is between me and me. Various mes that want different things - ALL THE THINGS - and are trying to work out which should get priority.

Hope it goes well.

I always find it weird to let go of locations despite that I've lived a fair number of places. I've never owned anywhere like that but when my parents sold their house they'd had for a decade recently it was a bit sad even though it wasn't home to me, home is always where I am for me. I think part of the oddness, for me anyway, is the knowing you can't go back there, not really, that it stops being a place open to you.
