The Home I Would Choose For Myself

But thinking that I could choose this home, now, or someday—well, I’ve got the debt I’m working to pay off, and a career to build, and I don’t really want to think about the cost of first and last month’s rent and security deposit and moving my furniture and buying a chocolate-brown sofa. It can’t be what I chase after, right now. What I’m already chasing is more important. I can still be happy, in my placeholder home.
