Sold the SSEi for a $3G over what I owed on it. As for school I'm not able to get in this semester since I didn't sign up until July and was placed like #8-12 on waiting list for all the classes I wanted to take.
So I will be on the starter list for next sem. -Might still get in on a night class this sem depending on if 3 drop out so I can get in there.
Sold the SSEi because I couldn't afford to keep it and go to school. One week after I sold the SSEi I was called into the Supervisor'* office and I didn't know why -I've only been in there twice and both times were for interviews for other positions that I'd applied for -I hadn't applied for any lately so I was kinda worried. Turns out they have a new compensation plan at work, everyone is getting a raise, mine was a 20% increase in pay
and everyone was getting a bonus check as a thank you for sticking around (they'd done a compensation survey of similar jobs in a local 5-state region and found they were way below average). My bonus is a few hundred dollars so I figure between what I'm getting now (work wages that will allow for a savings account rather than barely making it by), what my bonus is, what I have left from selling the SSEi, and the bonus, plus the insurance on the three cars I'm looking at (1996 SSEi, 1996 Riviera, and this 1998 Park Ultra -all under $4500) is about $100-130 less for 6 months than it was on the 1999 SSEi with a higher deductable. Plus, I'm thinking of letting Ashley take over Ol Blue since her Ford Aspire is kinda giving her problems and gets less mpg'* too (Aspire =22-24 mpg'* and Ol Blue =24-28 average without OD lockup which getting fixed Monday -so with OD lockup Ol Blue will get another 3-4 mpg'*).
