beats & rests

Well. Apparently there’s nothing that can be done about the grinding noise my car is making, but it’s also, apparently, nothing to worry about. I’m kind of relieved, I guess, but I’m also annoyed because I don’t want my car to make that noise. I don’t know when the noise it’s making is going to become a problem.

I’m so frustrated with this dumb vehicle and I want a new car.

Sometimes I go to take a picture out my bedroom window and the front facing camera is on and and I go, “oh, hello, self.” and take a picture.

I guess sometimes my mechanic does things in my car without telling me, like replace the air filter, and because I don’t look at each line item on the receipt and just go off the total price he gives me over the phone, I don’t actually KNOW that he replaced the air filter so I didn’t know when I took my car to Jiffy Lube and they told me the air filter needed to be replaced that it was just done two months ago and that they’re big fat liars and now I’m pretty pissed about that extra $25 they charged me for something that didn’t need to be done.

I really appreciate the mechanic I take my car to not being a sleazeball. I like that he lets me ask him questions and gives me honest answers. I like that he doesn’t treat me like an idiot when I ask questions.

That being said, I really hate having to take my car to the shop. Goodbye money. It was nice pretending to know you.

a-little-bit-of-bourbon replied to your post:I checked my last savings account statement and…

Student loans give me hives. I go into repayment soon.

I’ve been paying mine for nine and a half years and I am no where near being done. I’ve had to stop looking at them when I go to pay them because I actually owe more on my federal student loans than I borrowed, so basically I’m never going to finish paying them off.

  • I checked my last savings account statement and I’m not sure anymore what in there is for Ireland and what is in there “just in case”.
  • The more I think about my car dilemma the more anxious I feel. I know at the very least I have to fix whatever problem it is having now. But do I wait for the next thing and then fix that to, or see about trading it in?
  • I looked up student loan forgiveness programs today, just out of curiosity. I don’t qualify for any of them, as I assumed I wouldn’t. Still, I was filled with a feeling of disappointment.
  • If I didn’t have student loans I think I would be less freaked out about taking on a car payment, because it wouldn’t be a $175 car payment on top of $365 student loan payments every month. Plus I would probably have a lot more in savings.
  • I am going to be 30 in less than six months and I’m more aware than ever that I do not have the financial ability to support myself. Or maybe I’m not more aware of it, but definitely more upset about it.
  • In regards to money I feel hopeless 100% of the time. It seems like no matter what I do I can never get ahead.
