I’ve been trying to buy a house for the last two months. I’ve been putting in offers sometimes 30k over asking and nothing. Since the work from home pandemic is here to stay, San Francisco Bay Area transplants are coming and paying cash. Homes are on the market usually a week at most. Feels insane.

Wish I felt more comfortable going to the skatepark. Very conscious about social distancing.

I got a cool ass chameleon this year!



are you in the Sac area?

I moved out here for work a few months ago from the south bay.  I had to go 23K over asking to purchase a house and that was the third house I put on offer on. I don't really have that "bay area money" everyone else does. The market is stupid out here right now.  Good time to sell I guess

How's everyone doing in 2021?

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

2021 is alright. Still havenít been able to get into a house. Weíre giving 20,000+ over asking, waiving contingencies, and every ill conceived notion of home buying.

Fully vaccinated.
Going to the track regularly.

Havenít rode my bmx since December. When the pic was taken.

My brother got a keep yesterday.

my bike, which i haven't ridden for a few years, has literally melted thanks to being left under a glass roof. The tires melted and stuck to the ground, grips are a mess, i'll have to take it apart one day to salvage some parts just for keepsake e.g. RNC 30t full titanium sprocket, gsport monkey front hub, elementary stem, JCPC pedals. I completely forgot where i got the frame from, i only remember having to ask the girl i was seeing at the time to get it for me from the US.

professional career wise, i've started a firm with two others to provide financial risk consulting for institutions and other investment banks. we've done surprisingly well over the past couple years, even during the heaviest COVID hits. The tax man has dragged out a legal dispute against us for 14 months now, they're literally trying to claim payable tax on parts of our profits that are under no local jurisdiction and without double taxation policies. i can't go further into it but it's very annoying. It does make you wonder if your own lawyers are also dragging their feet

politically, where i live is getting completely wrecked. day by day, laws are being 'amended' to quash democracy, there is literally no way out. I've been wanting to migrate to a scandanavian country for a while but more realistically, i'll probably end up in canada/new york/ ausatralia/ aus/ new zealand in a few years.

IDK man Australia sounds like a wicked police state from everyone I've talked to there. Between the gun bans and the shit they do to anyone who dares modify their own car it doesn't exactly sound like a free country, before you even look into anything else going on. And it's a bummer most countries who seem to have their shit together have such cold climates, I'm really not a fan of winter weather.
