Yay!

Got registered for my GED. They are recommending that I take the accuplacer ASAP, so that if I don't get the GED results before registration begins, I can still register and qualify for financial aid. Oddly, I am not nearly as worried about the accuplacer as I am about the GED, though I will need to brush up on my math skillz for both.

I think I will also need to take out at least one student loan, as much as I really don't want to. I need a car that is more dependable than the one I bought in April, plus, I just really don't like the car. It was my fault that I ended up with that one, but we had such a limited budget. The student loan would be double the budget I had in April, so that should leave me a nice little sum to get something that can make it into Albuquerque on a regular basis and that I enjoy driving. Life is too short to drive a car you don't like.

Well, shit

I got my first ticket today. I got it for not having proof of registration. I got it while on my way to the MVD to get my car registered. I finally made it to MVD to be told that I needed to get the insurance straightened out. I had to call Jonathan to come get me and take me down to Abq. I had to leave the car in the MVD parking lot, because I don't think I could have handled multiple tickets. The car is now registered, and I have insurance. Except for the ticket, I guess it all worked out ok.

Jonathan told me that I should take the van today, and I told him that it should be fine since I had the bill of sale and the title in my purse. I thought that since it hadn't been 30 days since I purchased it, I was covered by the paperwork. Shows what I know.


{EDIT}: I posted this last night, pretty much after the chance of him calling me back was gone. He told me yesterday that if I got it registered by the end of the day, and I gave him proof of that, the ticket would *go away*...

He called this morning at 8:30 and I gave him the plate number and he told me to tear up the citation. I honestly didn't think that he would call me back, so I was just bugged by the entire situation. I knew I would be stressed until the court date, but now I don't have to worry about it. :D

I bought the first one I looked at. It was cheap and in decent condition. The previous owner had used it for street racing and blown the transmission. He took it in to get it fixed and never came back for it. The mechanic had a lien put on it and got a title. It's a 2000 but it only has 85k on it and the tranny is new. I think I kinda like it. Except the spoiler, but I think I have figured out a workaround. Also, I will post pics!

Well, hell

I have gone and fallen in love with a Jeep Wrangler. I can tell Jonathan is hoping the guy who is going to look at it tomorrow will buy it, so that I don't have the temptation any longer. I am almost hoping for the same thing, just because it isn't as practical as I should want and I would have to learn to drive a manual. That doesn't change the fact that I want it. I want it bad. I have fantasies about driving around with the top off and being a tart (which I wouldn't be since I am not terribly smokin' or anything; but it's a fantasy, LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!).

Oh, did I mention it is cherry red???

*sigh*

*crosses fingers* -not sure if this is to make sure it sells tomorrow or not.

Let's see. I went to K & J's wedding. She looked like a fairy princess brought to life. The dress was to die for and her in it, oh yes. J was adorable, although he looked dazed for a lot of the day. I was happy that K smiled throughout the day and night. It was a beautiful wedding.

In which I bitch and moan...A LOT )
Anyone know anyone else that might want to buy a 1994 Subaru Loyale station wagon? The chick who was going to buy it backed out. It has a couple of issues, nothing horribly major. It's a great car, we just don't need it anymore. Mom doesn't drive much, and I love my car too much.

*sigh*

It was worth a shot.

*WOOT*
