It depresses me that everything in life revolves around the mortgage. It is a barrier to doing what I want. Just questioning a lot of things in my life right now. I'm studying a degree full time and my student loan debt is $20k and will probably reach $50k by the time I finish (still owe money on my previous degree).

I am buying a 5-6 thousand dollar house to live in so that I do not have to pay any mortgage, and then I will work and pay about 80% to student loans. Like I said, a mud hut.

I am in the suburbs of Melbourne. I could move out further away to a regional town and pay way less for a home. I'd rather live in Melbourne, not used to regional. Every major city is super expensive.
