Moving sucks, but the end results are worth it

In case you didn't know, I live in downtown Bellevue, WA. Now, the great thing about Bellevue is that I am 10 minutes to anywhere I need to go - Bungie in Kirkland, the Hurricane or Buckley's in Seattle, the Cinerama, etc. I can also make quick trips to Redmond if I need to, or have quick access to my friends that live north in Bothell and Mill Creek.

But... there is a huge disadvantage to living where I do - I live in a 755 square foot condominium, with my girlfriend and my dog.

Yeah, you might be able to guess that things are cramped. And with my home's equity at an all time high, and with interest rates seemingly constantly rising, it is time to bail. This means, though, packing up all the previously mentioned crap and moving. To where, I don't know. But it will be real house this time, and have a yard. I am sick of living in a condo where I can't even play games at a normal volume because my downstairs neighbors go to bed at 10pm for some strange reason.

So, starting today I'll be getting my agent to start the selling process and the house hunting. Should be interesting. While I loathe the actual process of moving (packing, selling, transporting, etc.) - the end result will be glorious. I am really looking forward to putting together a real movie/game/computer room, not having to wear headphones anymore when playing games, and being able to buy and install all kinds of neat, geeky toys to "improve" my house.
