The thing that sucks about college, is that even if there is snow outside... we still have class. Bummer.

Car trouble

current mood: grumpy

Okay guys. Here's the story. I need help.

My car is going to blow up. I need a whole new engine. The engine will cost about $2,000 (depending on availability). I can keep it running for a little longer, they say, but eventually it will explode and leave me stranded somewhere (probably between McMinnville and Vancouver). Here are my options:

1. Invest and buy a new motor.

+ It might be cheaper than trying to buy another used car
+ I like my car. :) Its been good to me (even in spite of the fact that its going to blow up soon).
+ I'm not sure I could get much money from selling it

- Why pay $2000 to fix something I paid $2500 for?
- A zillion other things need to be fixed OTHER THAN the damn motor. Like the AC cable and stuff

2. Sell it, and buy another car

+ Its possible to get a good deal on a different car, and cheaper insurance (my car is a sporty one)
+ There will probably be less to worry about fixing
+ Change is good

- I only have about $2000 in my bank account
- I will not have a source of income when I start school again (I do workstudy but Linfield eats all that money)

3. Do nothing

+ Save $$
+ I've been lucky so far... heh heh

- Have it explode somewhere, like on the freeway on my way home from school
- Have the car catch on fire and me stuck in it... and then I die
- If I run it until it really dies, then there is NO chance I could get any money from the car

Heh. I don't really suppose the 3rd option is a valid one. But, I need to do something soon. The idea of not having a car freaks me out. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Oh... what about option 4: having a bunch of random people beat the shit out of it, causing it to be "totaled", then making a claim to my insurance company. Any takers?

indescribable

current mood: hmmm..

Its official. I'm ready to go back to school. I'm even ready to bend over, grab my ankles, and learn OChem.

Unfortunately, I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to people. One of my best friends, and my boyfriend, are both leaving next week. I always have a hard time saying goodbye to people.. and it will suck. However, I keep forgetting that I'm leaving soon too and that I will soon get to see people I've missed dearly, and meet new ones too.

Cheers to a good academic year. :)

18 days!

Alright. Now that I've had some sleep, I can now report the most badass weekend I've had this summer (besides the beach... but that's a given)

Thursday: Nothing too exciting happened, unless you consider watching 6 hours of Scrubs with one of your best friends exciting. Which, I do. If I didn't, I wouldn't be reporting it. I've also officially added Zach Braff to my "Celebrity To-Do List".

Friday: Work... blah. Came home, took a nap. Went over to Debra's to get pretty because we were going dancing! Picked up her boy... picked up mine (!!!).. then we went on an adventure to find food. We ended up eating at Denny's--- which was awesome. But I was a little disappointed because we saw the weiner mobile and we wanted a picture with it.. but then it just like, disappeared... wtf? Anyways.. after food we then got lost in Portland trying to find the club. But we got there eventually, and danced until we were about to pass out. Good times!

Friday night/Saturday morning: Me + Seann + Cuddling = ♥ That is all.

Saturday: Get up early, go to Debra's. Hit Jamba, then hit the road! We took the drive all the way down to Newport so that we could drop Seann off (that was part of the agreement, if he came all the way up for one night we wouldn't make him take the bus back down). Had to take the "scenic route" (if you know what I mean...) so it took us forever. After that, the girls had a surprise birthday adventure for me.. which included them taking my clothes, roller skating, and food (you figure out the connection). I love my girls.

So today... I'm trying to *not* do anything. Plus I might be getting sick, which sucks.

Well. Today is the day upon which I was born, all 19 years ago. Hmmm. So now that I'm all of a sudden older and wiser, I'm all of a sudden old and wise enough to drink myself silly in Canada (I just typed that 'Cananda', just so you know). Too bad gas is $3.00 a gallon, and my car has to go into the shop tomorrow (its going to explode soon... seriously). So I will just have to settle with the thought that this is my last year as a teenager. Wahoo.

Things I want to do before I turn 20 (ooooh thats scary):

+ Learn to drive a stick shift
+ Take a road trip somewhere (the beach, Cananda, Seattle... somewhere)
+ Go to Enchanted Forest <-- this one is important
+ Actually venture out of my dorm room
+ Get a cooler job than the one I have now

I think those are do-able. I tend not to make resolutions on New Years, because that's dumb. Maybe I should just make ones on my birthday from now on. Yeeeeeah.

Whatever. I'm really tired. I'm going to bed!

P.S. *hugs* to those of you who remembered it was my birthday. It means a lot. Really, it does. :)

So the airport decided it'd be fun to ship one of our bags to Las Vegas.

My dad had a $7000 braille reader thing in it, along with hundreds of dollars of clothing that belonged to him and my brother. As of right now... all the clothes he owns (besides the ones he's wearing) are over there.

Have I mentioned lately that I fucking hate airports?

I love it, when I think that I have the openining shift at work, but really I start two hours later. Thats two whole hours of sleep I didn't think I'd get last night when I went to bed at 1 am. Ahhhh... great way to start the day!

Hmmm. Where to start.

So Seann came up last week. It was sooooo lovely to get to spend lots of time with him. He's one of those people where there is no such thing as an "awkward silence", and just knowing he's right there keeps a smile on my face, no matter what we're doing. Its been a long time that I've been able to find someone like that. I think its also great that we share a passion for music. We spent hours and hours playing this past few days, and it never gets old.

The gig down in McMinnville went rather well. During one of our first few songs, some guy came up and started talking to us practically in the middle of a song. He's like, "Yo.. I'm so-an-so (don't remember his name). I've performed here before. I'm a Christian rapper!" and we're like "okay cool..." So then he starts to rap to not one, but two of the following songs. I'm trying my hardest not to crack up, and its not helping to see Seann's family over there laughing as well. Somehow I held it together, and then started crying with laughter afterwards at the table with Jerry and Brian. "Terrepileptic" is by far one of my most favorite words now. :-P

My dad and little brother have been out of town since Thursday night. They're in NJ visitng family and such, so its just been my mom and I. I was afraid that she was going to be psycho and freak out like she was doing before my dad left, but its actually been quite pleasent. My dad, on the other hand, is a wreck. He didn't want to go there in the first place (its his mom's 75th birthday so he got a guilt trip) and he's not even trying to make the best of it. My dad is weird like that. He always has a very pessimistic view on things, which means its really hard for him to enjoy himself. Needless to say, I'm just ready for them to come back so that my household can get back to normal.

Other than that, things are quite well up here in the Couve. Almost ready to go back to school, though. Almost.

current mood: bored

This was fun! I took a bunch of quizzes to see how I ranked as far as astrological signs go. Here were my results:

80% cancer
73% leo
67% aquarius
60% sagitarius
53% taurus
53% virgo
53% libra
53% pisces
47% aries
47% gemini
47% scorpio
27% capricorn

(Really, I'm a leo. But my birthday is on the cusp of leo and cancer, so I've been told I'm both. Funny, huh?)

Damn, I'm bored. I need a life.
