我把青春先给你【10】

【坐在回国的航班上,终于有机会把这部分经历整理到完结】

 

五月中旬,apartment终于close,期间仍然需要跟银行的lender打交道,签各种文件,懂的不懂的,但搬进去还得等到七月初,因为和owner还有rent back的合约。

也是缘分,在递交offer前,我给C先生写了份自我介绍,说了我的工作情况,湾区UX设计师一枚,大概意思是说向卖方保证,我是良民,绝对是诚心想买房子,不是想打击报复社会干一票的。结果未曾想,卖家的男主人居然是在IDEO工作了十几年的资深设计师,最近才跳槽到SF一家创业公司做UX总监…

回国前有拿到自己的那一份钥匙,决定再去房间内部看了一遍,没料到女主人正好在家,她是个stay at home mom,手里抱一个baby,旁边还倆活蹦乱跳的。一家人都很nice,记录下来很多我需要记住的,关于new apartment的信息,比如他们精心设计的厨房的一些机关,洗衣机烘干机怎么用等等。

七月份,他们也要搬去Castro Valley他们的新house。听她兴奋的跟我说起,新房子有四个卧室,车库可以直接通到客厅,会比现在方便许多,顿时觉得,在买卖结束之前,买房和卖方其实是人为的被放到了对立面,中间夹着俩agent,各自都有各自的利益和目的,属于不可调和的利益冲突,但其实大家都是普通人,某一天,谁都可能成为买家或是卖家,不过是受到市场的制约,希望维护自己的利益。

 

很多人都觉得,人生得给自己贴上某些标签才好像成熟起来,比如有没有毕业,有没有工作,有没有买房,有没有结婚,有么有小孩,等等,但至少在经历了买房的这个过程之后,我并不觉得自己比半年前成熟了,也并不觉得所有那些完成了人生的这些checklist的人,就应该被认为是成熟了的群体。这个过程,不可否认,的确是让人能学到很多的,但以一种成熟的心态来面对生活,是远比完成买房这项project要难的多的事情。

这件事情的起始是,爸妈觉得我这个年纪不应该租房,买房能让我的生活稳定下来,也是一种更经济的生活方式,这些和“成熟”都无关。我对成熟的期待是,建立起自己的家庭,对未来有明确的目标,but i am nowhere near that yet。我其实很羡慕那些一起买房的couple,他们是真正的在定义一个“家”,而我,只是在定义一个“公寓”。

 

我甚至可以想象,一个月以后,当我拿到钥匙,真正住进apartment,对于人生的下一步要怎么走,怎么处理生活、感情和工作未来的方向,仍然有很多问号,差别可能是,房东变成了银行,可能自己还要担起做房东的责任,只是会想要关注房市的走向,希望从家庭投资的角度而言,这是正确的一步,不管怎么样,青春先给你了吧 呵呵。

 

这么讲好像有点消极,当然,还是很开心找到一个自己和父母都很满意的place,并且在这么competitive的市场也拿了下来,而且发现好多朋友都住在附近(有些甚至是walk-in distance…),已经开始喜欢Mountain View的餐馆和coffee places了。

很期待这个已经到来的夏天,将会有忙碌的工作,有需要计划的旅行,还要留出很多很多的闲情逸致来设计新家,希望可以一切顺利! 🙂
