Getting close

As of the 16th, it’s only a mere month before I can rightfully be declared a home-owner. Oh well, at least a home-co-owner since we both will own half of it. Secondly, I will legally have a partner. It’s pretty weird to know you’re going to legally bind yourself to another person, regardless of the fact you perhaps even intended

It's a festive week

This week, several things have happened, which do not happen often. Firstly, I got two separate acknowledgements that our mortgage is accepted by the institution lending us the money, and they do not see any reasons why not to let us be able to buy our house. Yay! We now own a vast amount of money. Secondly, but not

Status-update housing

On a regular basis, but slowly, the documentation needed to apply for mortgage is coming into our possession. As it is a painstakingly slow process, we’re hoping to complete it on May 2nd; just in time for our May 5th deadline! Mortgage-people: the first batch of paperwork is heading your way!

Closing time

If all goes well today, I’m due to hand in my thesis this afternoon, around 3pm. About 4 to 6 weeks after that, I will graduate after a graduation-session, where my supervisors will try to ask all kinds of tough questions. I’m looking forward to it! Until then, I’ll be working at Ordina. My first week is also nearing

A little money can go a long way

Yesterday, early in the evening, my girlfriend and me have decided we were in a long-term relationship and have confirmed this decision with a 30-year contract. What? A 30 year long contract? Yes: our mortgage. We just signed the mortgage proposal, and are scrambling to get all the right documents to the creditor to get our mortgage approved. May 5th

/me is done!

Whoa, that feels nice! I’m (finally) done waiting for the approval for my graduation! I’ve set up an appointment to deal with all the bureaucratic hassle that has to be dealt with at the university, but I’m not going to change a single letter of my thesis anymore. Done! yay! *celebrates* Update (2008-04-07): I’ve had to reschedule the appointment to

Home shopping – part II

As of last Friday, we now own a house. The next few weeks will be frantic due to the fuss surrounding financing a house, finding furniture and all meetings with real estate brokers and the notary. I’m really glad to have bought the house, and am really looking forward to moving in, after redecorating and all the mentioned fuss above.

Being AWOL

As of today, your most favorited blogger is back. I went AWOL last week, to rest a bit and generally do a whole lot of nothing. So I did, and today I returned to the daily business of travelling to and from Nieuwegein. I’m really nearing completion of the thesis, so I’ll be posting updates soon!

Only 2 months to go

The first of November is a milestone date for me. It’s only 2 short months away from the deadline for my master thesis, and I’m kind of shaky acknowledging this. So far, I’m still going as planned, with my thesis progressing as scheduled. My portal quality framework is taking shape real quick and the validation stage is near. I’ll be
