The New Year - 2008

I'm not one for resolutions, but I do have a few things that I definitely want to accomplish in the year that is 2008.
  • Sell my first screenplay
  • Finish at least two more screenplays
  • Get a passport
  • Travel to Europe (Paris, London, etc.)
  • Get married
  • Buy a house in Anniston and finally move
So...what do you plan on doing in 2008?

Aww! You're getting married!

I don't really dare to set any goals for myself right now. I need to get this MA first, and then I'll work out what to do from there.

I want to buy my own apartment instead of living in my parents' house. But considering it'll cost me about $350,000 I need to be pretty damn sure what I buy is right for me.

Yeah, for an apartment on around 70 m2.
Well, maybe a little less. But definately more than $300,000 - I may not spend 350k.

Wouldn't it make more sense to rent a while longer? I think most people your (my?) age can't really afford to buy an appartment yet.

That said, good luck!

I can afford it, what I'm thinking about is if I want to. I would have to cut some expenses, like buying as much clothes as I do now and these things. Prices on homes are low these days, the longer I wait, the more expensive they're likely to become. Also, the sooner I get a place of my own, I can start making money off it (in increased value).

And yes, we're practically the same age. I think you're like a year younger than me or so. I'm almost 22.

What does $300,000 buy you in Copenhagen?

Wow, you're so organised, Foeni!

Good luck finding a place you like, then And I suppose, if it turns out you don't love it as much as you thought you would, you could always sell, make some money and try again

In Copenhagen itself? Not very much. At least not if you want to live in the center of Copenhagen. I live around 30 km away and $300,000 would almost buy me this apartment (which I'd like), but I'd have to try and get the seller to lower his price in order to not just be able to afford it. https://www.home.dk/sag/107-3606

Thanks
Well, theoretically I could, but it costs loads of money selling and buying an apartment. Not just the apartment, but the costs of buying and selling are huge.

Holy fucking shit!

$300,000 goes a bit further here.

Move to NYC
Fuck shit up oldschool
Write shit, and become a more famous screenwriter than Brad
Steal one of Brad's scripts and it'll be considered my serious film and I'll make shit loads off it, then Brad will sue me and get a lot of the royalties.
Start dating more/be less reserved

That is quite interesting. I could have a house with $ 300,000. I made my quotation request for a home for my girl in California and it is $2.5 m. and i am working on it. hopefully to pay it in cash by mid year.

if anyone is interested to be in a good neighborhood please contact my broker Ms. Fisher thru: http://www.realtydirect.net/news/?PUB=16574

for myself i want a children foundation located in Africa.

and for keira, i want her to marry this year for there is someone who could take care of her personal needs and wants...

You can take over for me then, because I have any plans, it's to stop giving a damn.
