Timeframe Sunday 14 August 2005:
4am-9:30am: Car stolen (time between J arriving home from mate's place and me looking out window).
3:30pm-5:30pm: New (OK used) car bought (OK again, will be bought when loan comes through).
The car is gone, we know that. It was either a cheap way home, or stripped for parts. We can't afford to pay $300 a week for a hire car for too long, but we have to have a car. The car down the road that's been for sale for a while, well it's no longer for sale. Upside - we will soon have a car that is only 10 years old, not 22 years old. Downside - we have to fork out $5400 for it. Upside - it will be cheaper to run than our old petrol guzzler, especially with petrol heading for $1.30 a litre. Downside - we'll have to buy a new CD player for it. Upside - the air conditioning works. Upside - it goes like the clappers. Upside - it's quiet. Upside - it won't cost a fortune to insure, even with an under 25 year old driver. Verdict - things could be worse.
Will only withdraw from one subject. So I add 6 months to my degree. Doesn't really matter, the degree is for my benefit, not for my 'career'. My life is like a rollercoaster - big highs, low lows, but I'm still here, and still enjoying the ride.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts. Sorry to lay my crap on y'all.
