200k deposit certainly takes the edge off a mortgage.

In addition, anyone turning up at 23 to 26 with two years in an oil field job screams, "I am not a lazy entitled millennial".

So one is going to find oneself invited to more job interviews than one would, had one not put oneself into that career choice in one's early twenties.

...But the "h" is pronounced, so it would be "a". Unless you follow a cockney pronunciation and it's "an 'ouse".

a hat, an hour, etc.

Thank you Gardener, I forgot that rule! I knew there was a rule on the usage of an, but for the life of me could not remember it. Now, I'm gonna  get it right! Lol.
To board the struggle bus: no whining, board with a smile, a fake one will be found out and put off at next stop, no maps, no directions, going only one way, one destination. Follow all rules and you will arrive. Drop off at pearly gate. Bring nothing.
