I. Don’t throw away the memories you had together. They happened, you can’t deny it. If you tossed them out like last week’s meatloaf you’re not making room for something new to fit you’re leaving an empty space where something wonderful once consumed you. It’s not something that can just be dumped out. Instead live every moment you had together in your head. With complete detail. Think of every moment, smell, thump of your heart, taste, thought, feeling. Remember everything you saw only with all the colors bursting so much greater than actually lived. Exaggerate. Retell it so vividly that there is nothing left to remember.
II. Say you love her. Not in anyway that you ever said before. But, oh God, don’t say it to her. If you hear her mutter those three words back to you, even if the sound arouse from the loneliest, most greedy part of her stomach, it will mess you all up. Tell someone you love her, though. Admit it to the air, remind your pillow, inform the mirror. Make sure you annunciate each word slowly, you do not want to forget to pronounce the meaning. Emphasis. Say each word over again until it fits how you feel. Say it until the phrase is just movement of your lips and carbon dioxide exiting your body. Say it until the meaning is left on the floor from the words that lost their value.
III. Don’t try to love another. You think that maybe someone else will make you feel less pain, but it will burn every inch of you when you pull someone else into your grip. The bottle and any amount of smoke will not fill up the spot she left in your life. She was your world and now it’s slowly dying, do not kill yourself with it. Taking refuge of a new planet will not help you either. You’re alone now. Another girl will not change how much you need her right now. You will only want her more. Seeing the bottom of a bottle will not erase the memories. They will just pound against your head all night. So sit and cry about everything that once had is now gone, find the comfort in being alone for no one will see you so vulnerable.
IV. Know that you’re going to feel something for her forever. She is a human with a mind like no other this world has ever seen and a body like no other you have seen. You cannot just forget someone so beautiful. The only thing that is promised is the pain in your chest will subside one day. You will go days on end without craving her, and soon you won’t even think of her. Her place in your life will always be somewhere in your mind, but you will forget how it felt to love her and every color in her eyes and just how bright her smile actually is. One day she will just be the first girl you truly loved, no depth or emotion or regret. Be scared for that day to come.
So, let’s say you love Aston Martin, but you also really
love race cars. Who’s to say that you can’t have the best of the both worlds? Aston Martin certainly isn’t and that’s why
for a cool £250,000 you could be the proud owner of 1 of only 100 Vantage GT3’s.
Under the lightweight bonnet you will find the 6.0-Litre V12
engine from the standard V12 Vantage producing 592-BHP and 460 pound ft of
torque. But the GT3 model uses an array of Magnesium components including the
inlet manifold and the torque tube. The exhaust is also a straight system made
from lightweight Titanium. The kind of figures that you can expect from the
vehicle would be 0-60MPH in just 3.5-seconds and a top speed of 180-MPH.
Overall the GT3 is 100-KG lighter than the V12 Vantage fat
boy version which creates a big bridge between the road and the track. 100-KG
is dropped by a full Carbon Fibre body bar the doors, with the option for
Polycarbonate rear quarters and windows. You could even have the standard
battery replaced with a Lithium Ion battery! With all weight saving options
added that car could weigh as little as 1565-KG.
Even more track magic is bought to the road legal car with
all the aero that create a visual feast. The addition of a massive rear wing,
big front lip and carbon canards lead to twice the aerodynamic force that can
be achieved with the Vantage GT4 and 7 times more than the standard V12
Vantage-S. All of these factors culminate to create Aston Martins second fastest
accelerating car, only to hyper One77. If you have the money, and the contacts
then I would seriously get your name on the list for one of these bad boys.
