Default this whole not owning a car thing . . .

it sucks.

right now i mostly just want to go out and buy an engine stand and an engine to put on it. my friends maxx is in the garage, but im not about to go mess around with his car without him here. he wouldnt appreciate that. i could mess around with nancys altima, but its an altima. no thanks.

i feel like tinting some taillights. anyone want to send me theirs? no guarantee on results, but youd probably get them back within a year or so

i suggested to nancy that she buy me one of those model engines you can buy, but shes not going to. and i have class tomorrow anyway.

but this whole not owning a car thing . . . it sucks. it takes some getting used to. first time ive not owned a car since . . . . 9th grade. at times ive owned as many as three. and financially i cant afford even a $500 beater for at least a couple months.

agreed on that point. the money im saving is the impetus behind the change in lifestyle. but the change still takes some getting used to.

what will suck is when you do get a car and have to get insurance and its high because you had such a lapse in coverage!
