I bought a house in Saskatoon for $86,000 when I was 19. Since I’ve been in Vancouver I’ve been renting it out to my brother and his friends. Last time I visited S’toon I realized that my house was sort of going to shit. The yard is out of control, super overgrown, broken appliances and beer bottles in the backyard, grass up to your knees. Plus the front yard is entirely covered in cigarette butts. Since I have been done at the Diamond and my brother is moving into the downstairs suite, I decided that logistically the smartest thing I could do is go back to S’toon for the summer to fix up my investment. I can live there for free because it has two complete suites and the rent for the downstairs covers the mortgage payments that are just over $600.
The living for free is good but other than that I am completely in the shit and that’s just the outside. The inside is covered in bad graffiti and grime. I have to get it all cleaned up and then I can start cooking. I don’t know what I should do about my 80 Camero it is getting rusty, but I love it so much.

If I’m going to be here all summer I’m going to need a part time job. I’m just going to do my best while I’m here, I still feel kind of like I’m in a dream world.
