Reflections on Buying a Car

So, I FINALLY have my car. Sheesh. What a process. I'm really excited to once again be the owner of a car. No more being carted around! No more begging for rides! FREEEEEEEEDOOOOOOM! (said in William Wallace voice) I haven't driven that much yet. But I love driving it. It is so choice. (Ten bucks if anybody besides Heidi or Austin knows that quote.) So, I was thinking I should start writing again. I mean, I used to write in my lj (livejournal) all the time before dating Austin. Now I never write. And it's not like I really don't have the time. I really do. And let's face it. I can type amazingly fast. Like a tiger.

So back to the car. I bought a 2002 Mitshibushi Lancer. It's shiny and blue and doesn't rain on the inside. I have yet to name it. Those who want to name it, feel free to give suggestions. I will shoot them all down. (Because my ideas will always be better.)

Last Friday was my last day at BYU Broadcasting. I am sad in a way. It's the first job that I've ever had that I felt utilized my talents and was enjoyable and fun in its own way. (Not that walking around a table for 8 hours a day getting paper cuts wasn't fun.... ;) ) I will miss it. But I'm ready to move on. Plus, I would've had to quit in August anyway.

I'm excited. Tomorrow I start my first day of nannying for my nephews. I'm sure I'll have so much fun. I love those kids so much. Plus they're fun and they're sure to keep my on my toes. (which is a good thing since I need the exercise.) Not to mention it'll be good mommy practice for when I have my baby later this year. Haha. Just kidding. Did I get you? Well, it will be good practice anyway.

Well, I'm hungry and for those that know me even remotely well, I don't function very well without food. So let's go make dinner. I shall write again.
