Love: My job. Because it gives me the opportunity to learn about awesome small museums and historic sites all over the county, like THIS ONE in Virginia. Recreating a partially collapsed 18th century home in glass? Wicked cool!
Hate: My master’s degree. Because I’ve been eyeing reasonably-priced co-ops recently, but have no hope of being able to buy any time soon because of that pesky down payment ( 😛 ), I was poking around at first-time homebuyer assistance programs. FHA doesn’t cover co-ops, but DC’s HPAP program does. Then I discovered this awesome little fact–according the HPAP, I qualify as a “very low income” household. That would be the lowest income level, the “everyone who makes under X amount” category. I freaking love my master’s degree and my professional field.
Now I’m wondering if I might technically qualify for food stamps also… *facepalm*
