I need a new car, and other thoughts.

Ever since my car accident on December 4th, I have been taking the bus everywhere. My income does not really allow for a big purchase, and my credit is rather shot after I fled domestic violence from my child's father. That said, I have fallen in love with taking the bus, and if I had my way, I'd use my car only to drive to my daughter's school, my mom's house, my boyfriend's house, and the store.

But first, I really have to get a car. I work in one city, live in another, my mom (who takes care of my daughter a lot) lives in yet another, and my boyfriend lives in a completely different county!

I'm also being more eco friendly. I bought organic food tonight and organic, locally produced house cleaners. I didn't go to the store just to look for organic things, but I did need a few staples and I thought it was worth the extra few dollars to buy local organic. What do you think? I'm not very knowledgeable about the differences between organic and earth friendly things, and the other stuff, but I figure at the very, very least, cleaning up my carbon footprint even infinitesimally will make me feel good.

I am enjoying my job more and more every day. I have more responsibility now, and I like being so busy. School is very hard though. I didn't know it would be this much of a struggle for me. I'm so intelligent. I know, I know, it sounds like I'm bragging but I really am. I used to be considered MENSA material, but now...

After years of lethargy, mental illness, and chaos, I don't think I'm playing my A-game. And that sucks. It really sucks.

  1. I'm looking into investing in a car myself when I move. Like you, I have become accustomed to taking the bus, and I love it, but it really is rather restricting, so I think I'm going to look into getting a hybrid car. Perhaps that might help with decreasing your carbon footprints? Best of luck with finding a car!! And I hope your first days back at school have been treating you well. :)
