my car got demoted
from "awesome toy to make better" to "transportation" for now.
it looks like my tuition will be doubling for next semester [at least doubling, thats optimistic], and with dwindling financial aid plus no pay raise, at a time where im already stretched a little thin . . .
priorities have been re-evaluated. there will be NO unnecessary purchases, unless it is in the guise of preventive maintenance, and even then, there will be only a minimum amount of leeway on price.
my plan had been to start buying toys to make my car better as of when i get my taxes back. on further thought, it is not a priority. not even a $0.50 2-liter of coke is an acceptable expenditure.
this fiscal responsibility stuff sucks. i can see why the government isnt very keen on it.
