I posted yesterday about my ignition problems with my car before leaving for work. Then I went to my car to leave, and my key wouldn’t turn at all. Short story: my wonderful fiance picked me up and took me to work, I had my car towed to the shop, took the bus home, and my car needs a part replaced and won’t be ready until Wednesday or Thursday. The whole deal will probably cost me around $500.
I’ve gone back and forth on whether or not to get it fixed, because my car is a 1999, it’s beginning to have more and more problems, and I’m sure it’s not worth a whole lot. But I decided to go ahead and put this on my (ever-increasing) credit card bill and wait until I start my job to get a new car. This way I can shop for a deal, get the car I want, and not put so much stress on myself at the moment when I need to be studying for finals.
In related news, I started reading Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace today.
My mom is graciously letting me borrow her car until I get mine back. All of these things that are going on with me lately are stressful but I will say that I am learning a lot of life lessons and I am grateful.
