About 10 years ago my wife and I were buying a house. We found out late that we needed a lot more cash than we had previously thought we needed, and the deadline to deliver it was just a few days away. After returning home from my full-time gig at about 6pm, I took a break for a bit and then worked all night on a job for a client to make up the extra money. When 7am rolled around I had just finished up. Then I went back to work at my full-time job, and later met with the client to present my work. It was roughly 27 hours at a keyboard for me. That effort made it possible for us to successfully buy our first home. If you want something badly enough, make it happen!

    was that before or after the subprime economy crash?

    @heyheni after. Market value of homes did continue to crash a bit more after we purchased. We should have waited longer but it could have been much worse for us.

    I would have taken a sick day off from fulltime gig and then slept my ass off. Priority was done anyways.
