YOLO – You Only Live Once

September 24, 2021

Synopsis

I decided to do this show after a phone call with my mother. I was talking to her about my powerlessness. More specifically, we talked for an hour about ways I could afford to own a house. The most viable solution, and also one that always impressed me the most for various reasons, would be to buy land on the outskirts of Lisbon, and buy a prefabricated house. I realised that what seemed to be the most viable solution was still far from being viable. Or maybe not…
We finished the phone call and I went looking for land on the internet.
Then, I went researching about prefabricated houses, their prices and their characteristics.
Then I looked up how to apply for a mortgage.
Then I researched whether banks would lend me money for this.
Then I did the maths.
Then I thought. I thought about it a lot.
Then I decided I was going to do this show.
And of course, I called my mother again.
