So I’ll be receiving a ~120k USD lump sum next spring. If you were in my shoes, would you: A) Purchase a ~350K home (in Orlando) with 20% down. Remaining 50k in stock market B) Just DCA it all into market Further context: Will likely be at grad school for 1.5-2 years following that. Will have an income from scholarship stipend but it'll only cover expenses. Also unsure how that'd work with mortage application if I don't have an ability to provide proof of income.

I went on vacation w family and had a good time last week. Back home alone I feel in a funk again. Funkier than Cold Medina. Just wanted to share with someone.

Just wanted to say, I visited Atlanta last weekend with some friends and the black excellence was such an unexpected and welcoming culture shock.
