Well. I bought a new car, for one! If you haven’t heard, in late October my Saab shit to bed, which is fairly close to my return to the US which was mid-September. I was flat broke. My distrust of shops led me to buy a used car in a person-to-person deal, and I bought a 2001 Isuzu Vehicross. Awesome car, and I love it. Got a great deal on a loan. Very good shape. BUT, by late January, without getting into technical details (which I can), the transmission failed, and there was no way I, nor the previous owner, could have known. So I am FUCKED. On 2/22/13 I bought a 1994 Saturn SL1 for $800. Needed a battery ($65), and registration and plate renewal (which I decided to do then too, $105), gas for my buddy who helped me out ($35), floor mats and seat covers ($30); I’m not too far into it. Averaged 31.56mpg when I filled up on the 27th! Love that! I hope I get some good time out of this one. 19 and it has been my 6th car UGH. Well, I still own four hahaha. I still plan on fixing the Isuzu. The guy I want to do it will have a new shop back at his house (he is retiring) and will be doing side work by April and much cheaper, so I’ll have him do it.
Kymmie and I were two months together back on the 25th <333 She is so wonderful! I really am lucky she likes me back because I’m pretty sure I couldn’t have gotten away with half the shit I say and do hahaha (I love you don’t kill me :) <3, hahaha)
Getting really tired of this nasty weather. One, I found out for the hard way I need to silicone my door seal gasket on the Saturn when I sat on a wet seat and got my dress clothes for work all wet! Also, I want to drive my DAF again! I want to roll the windows down and drive and not be freezing cold getting into bed and be able to feel my fingers working on cars and hike with Kymmie and hear the birds outside and wear short sleeve shirts again! AHHHH,
Just had to fix Firefox on my computer after an update? Took me a little bit but googleing it ended up being hardware acceleration? Weird. Idk. Working fine again and all my addons too. WHATEVER haha.
Lots of new phones coming out. Debating whether or not by the time I pay off my cash advance on the Saturn I should get a new one. My ATRIX had held up well, but recently since I broke my power button I’m tired of holding my charger everywhere. My stepdad has an upgrade but I think I’m going to wait for mine in April. Samsung is releasing some killer phones that is just mind boggling how fast and reliable they are. My 1st gen atrix is getting a little slow. I’m jealous still of my friends gf’s Razr M even though samsung is outclassing it slowly by now. I still like Motorola but, whatever haha. Just no piece of garbage Apple products.
Saw a movie with Andrew, Brooke, and Kymmie yesterday. I actually really liked it :) Silver Lining Playbook or something. Dunno why but I though it was very good!
Really anxious about transferring colleges. My school is being way to relaxed on sending my transcripts, I just found out today. So pissed. Clarkson emailed me saying they only received my recommendation letters and nothing else, but weeks ago I turned in those applications. UGH gotta go break some faces in the Registrars office.
Helped fix Anthony’s headlight issue tonight. We tried doing the ignition on my Saturn but somehow we could not get it out. I’m actually quite agitated about it.
Been very relaxed on tumblr lately :/. I’ve been pretty busy. My queue is almost drained D: UGH.
That’s it for now, I guess. Toodleioodles! (I just said that, Kymmie :P)
So I am probably not picking up my car tomorrow. And of course because of how the port works I am getting charged for every day due to their procedure I cannot legally pick the car up for, which is bullshit. So not only do I legally have to wait, I am charged daily for their storage. I am swamped with a never ending sea of homework, and mostly tough homework at that. My daily driving car is running like shit. Shitty enough that I don’t think it will pass inspection and I am already almost two months overdue. I also can’t afford to fix it because I am now almost penniless after my euro-trip. Still lonely and single. I basically have no life outside anything school and job based due to the game of catchup I am doing.
The summation of all this is just leaving me with this nearly nonstop intense feeling of anxiety. I feel like im just gonna fail everything when im in a bad mood and that just makes it worse. I mean, ill eventually catch up, and ill eventually pay off my credit card and have spending money again once I get some money rolling in, but it will be a while. I feel like I have been back a while but really its only been 9 or 10 days. In to reality already, I guess. Of course too when I return a coworker took disability leave and I have to work double at work, plus the double im doing to catch up in school.
It just all sucks. I wish I had my car that I spent $4000 on and wasn’t getting dicked around by fucking incompetent assholes ruining everything, and I wish I had a car that was easier to work on. Im gonna get an old car as a daily driver after this Saab. I feel like even though it wont get as much mileage at least I can work on most things that go wrong with it. My restoration project has gotten nowhere fast.
Now that my rant is over you may continue tumbling lol. Sorry.
Work was nice and slow, hung out with my friends all night had an ostrich egg omelet (and yes it was amazing, with curry powder and sausage, onions and cheese), watched the movie Paul again, went out for ice cream, play Quao, and just an overall great time.
Phew I needed that. Thanks guys :)
People should message me today cause im super tired, and super unmotivated at work.
Good weekend outlook though!!!!
