2023 New Year's Resolutions

I know I said I wasn't going to make any resolutions for 2023 but I realized there was one thing I absolutely must do or else I can consider the entire year a complete loss.

1. Move into a new home

I am done living in apartments and condominiums. I have been doing it for over a decade now and am sick and tired of the inconsiderate assholes that are drawn to these buildings.

In my current place I am flanked by loud mouthed idiots who smoke cigarettes in their bathroom which is adjacent to mine. And marijuana addled MMA fans who seem to like to re-enact scenes from fight club but only after midnight. Combine that with dogs that piss in hallways, elevators that are always broken, and building managers who I don't think even have their GED, it is somehow even worse then when I was living in UWaterloo dorms two decades ago.

So in 2023 I absolutely must move into a detached, semi-detached, or townhouse where I can at least minimize my interaction with the dregs of society. Ideally I would like to buy a home but since the Ontario housing market is in absolute shambles due to the rising interest rates I am not going to dismiss renting. I hate the idea of renting a place and then having to move again within a year or two, but I hate the idea of staying in this shithole even more.
