 I hope to cross this item off my list by the time I turn 30. I know it sounds impossible but it’d be cool if I could do it. And the most important thing is that I have a longterm goal to pursue. Since I am an independent person, I have always wanted to move out of my parents’ house. As soon as I graduated college, I wanted to buy a small apartment. I’m currently looking for a condo a little further away from the city centre. Despite the fact that it will take longer for me to travel to work, the price will be more reasonable and I will be able to afford it.

Having a flat of my own means a lot to me for several reasons. Firstly, I can decorate the house according to my own tastes and personality. Secondly, I can do whatever I want without interfering in my parents’ lives. I can invite my friends over for the weekend and I can throw a party anytime I want. Most importantly, I want to show my parents that I am a grown-up woman and that I can take good care of myself.

USEFUL VOCABULARY & EXPRESSIONS

never-ending – used to describe something that seems to never end or have an ending. “She had a never-ending list of complaints about her last company.”
to cross an item off your list – to mark it as finished or completed. When you have a list of things you want to do, and then you do one, you cross it off your list so that you know it has been finished and you don’t have to think about it anymore. “Today she was able to cross five things off of her very long to-do list.”
it would be cool if– another way to say… it would be nice if or it would be great if – you are talking about a hypothetical situation. “It would be cool if you could come visit me while I am in Japan.”
to purse a goal – to go after something that you want to accomplish or achieve. “She spent the last five years pursuing her goal of becoming a doctor.”
an independent person – someone who likes to do things on their own. “Her brother is a very independent person; he moved out of the house when he was only 20 and spent the next five years traveling around the world by himself.”
to move out of – to leave the place where you are living now. “He will be moving out of his apartment at the end of the month.”
condo – short for condominium, a form of housing where a person owns the unit and then can either live in it or rent it out to others. It is different than an apartment, which is usually owned by a person or company that owns all the apartments in a building. “The price for condos these days has really gone up.”
despite the fact that – even though. “Despite the fact that he has already graduated from college, he still has no idea what he wants to do with his life.”
to be more reasonable – related to price, it means that you will have an easier time affording it or paying for it with the money you have. If a price is unreasonable, it means that it is too expensive for you and you won’t buy it at that price. “The housing prices are becoming more reasonable these days than they were 3 years ago.”
means a lot to me – to talk about something being meaningful or important to you. “It means a lot to me that you came to dinner with me on my birthday.”
to decorate – to put up decorations such as paintings, curtains, wall-hangings, art and other things in a home or apartment or office. “People decorate their spaces with things they like.”

according to – in agreement or accord with – in this case, she will decorate her apartment based on her own tastes (what she likes) and her personality (with stuff that represents her). “He will do his job according to his manager’s instructions.”

to interfere with – to get in the way of, to be in the middle of something or others. “He doesn’t like it when his father interferes with his work by telling him what to do.”
to throw a party – to give or host a party, to be the person who invites others to the party and provides drinks and food. “She is throwing a big party for her 50th birthday this Saturday.”
a grown-up woman – a mature or adult woman, not a kid. Used to express that you can be responsible and take care of yourself. “She wanted to prove that she was a grown-up woman by purchasing a new condo all by herself.
