…to me and my car!
A year ago today, I was lucky enough to have received my beautiful 2010 Toyota Corolla as the most generous present I’ve ever gotten in my entire life from my Nana and Papa. While last March 17th was a day filled with tears and turmoil before finally ending in me driving away in the car I dubbed “Archer,” it was one of the most memorable days of the entirety of 2012 since I finally had my own car.
If I could send a thank you note to my grandparents every day of the year for giving me this car I would. It’s given me my independence and made me feel a little more grown up, not having to ask for rides or take the shuttle home to Phoenix whenever I want to see my family.
Archer has taken me to and from California twice now, driven me to multiple concerts and events over the past year, handled an entire room’s worth of possession on the move into my apartment, and carried more groceries than I could ever carry with my own two hands. It’s been my transportation to and from work and school and a reliable means of moving my butt and the butts of my roommates and friends from place to place.
It’s silly to get sentimental about a car but damnit if I don’t appreciate it every day of my life. So here’s to you my beautiful Batmobile and the many more adventures we’ll have along the road.
Found out I didn’t get accepted into UW Seattle, but that’s okay. I didn’t really expect it. I slacked off my junior and senior year in high school and I didn’t even think about college until my senior year. I don’t know and I still don’t know what to be when I grow up and I never knew what college I wanted to go to. It just sucks that I realized everything a little too late. If I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up and I knew what college I wanted to go to in the beginning, then I would’ve worked towards it. But I was unsure on both things so that’s why I’m not as disappointed compared to as if I was working on getting into UW my whole life. I knew I should’ve applied to more schools, but there’s not much I can do. It didn’t affect me that much. I felt like it affected my friends more because it was their dream school and they didn’t get in and they worked so hard to get there. It’s okay though, I just know what to expect now.
Other than today’s news, I spent my whole day thrifting with my cousin @bumbizzlebee. We went to 4 thrift stores and spent all day thrifting! Except I didn’t get anything and he got about 10 things, haha. I didn’t see anything I liked, I’m super picky when it comes to clothes. The nice things that I did see, I let Bee have it. I only bought a book and a tie. Hopefully I’ll get something next time.
