Kitchen Renovations, At a Bad Time…

kitchen renovationsThere’s always a something going on, and all these things are putting serious dents in the savings. I get that stuff happens in life, people go to concerts, they have birthdays, people want to get together and go to events, but…well, some of us don’t earn as much as others. I don’t know how me and my friends are all in our mid-twenties, and somehow I’m the only one still stuck with the job I had in uni. Which, by the way, is still a job I sort-of enjoy. Except during stock-take, and when I have to work late. And then some customers are just…

Anyway, details. Unimportant details! Just saying, pitching in for kitchen design sounds like something people should be doing if they have good-paying jobs, like everyone in this house who isn’t me. Why are we even discussing kitchen renovation anyway? This is a rental, there are four of us here, and one of the guy’s parents owns the apartment, so if they have anything they want to change about the place then that’s their business. Of course, that’s when I found out about the hidden clause in the contract that has us responsible for that sort of thing, which…well, it might be illegal. That’s a question for later.

I mean, it IS a pretty terrible kitchen right now. I wouldn’t exactly call it a miracle of modern kitchen design, and I’ve seen what they want to turn it into. Looks pretty nice. Oh, and there’s a twin sink! I grew up with one, and moving to a place with only one sink was a nightmare. And don’t even get me started on that one weird corner next to the dishwasher that makes it a pain to unload the plates. Seriously, anyone doing kitchen renovations nowadays has to know that nobody needs that kind of thing. I guess I could scrounge…if it’s for a good cause. Double sink though. And with four people in one small room, you NEED two sinks.
