In the early years of college, I moved by foot, except for rare weekends I had my sister's mexi-truck. After the mish, I conveniently stepped into the white Ford Escort left behind by my parents, and it followed me home when I moved back up north. Less than a month after I bequeathed the sweet ride to my little brother, it died. (haha, sucker!)
Car shopping is about the ultimate worst experience ever. Talk about buyer's remorse! I'd never spent a chunk of change like that before and I hope I won't have to do it again for a while. I paid for most of my ride in cash (cuz I'm rich like dat) and worked it out with the bank to pay a portion after the purchase. Goal was to have it paid off by the end of the year.
And here it is!
Not actually my car, but a green '99 Honda Civic just like it. Beauty, ain't it?
Four months of driving it and here are my favorite things about my car:
- Gas mileage
- Easy parking
- Fold down back seats into the trunk
- Heats up quick when it's cold
- Cools down quick when it's hot
- Green is easy to spot
- It's a normal, average car and it'll do me just great!
I made curry tonight and the whole house and all my clothes smell like it. Scarf, sweater, coat and everything underneath. Gross.
