My car is not a new car. My car is not a fancy car. Whatever it’s short comings it’s how I get around and I like it. Last night on the way to class it started chugging and then randomly revving really fast. On the way home the engine light came on. Given that it was late and I was tired I risked driving home and thankfully made it home. This morning I dropped it off at the mechanic up the road and I’m hoping to hell it’s not going to cost me a fortune. Four months out from my holiday I really don’t need to spend a lot of money that I don’t have on a car that isn’t worth much.

It’s times like this that I wish I was one of those people that lived right in the city and never used a car but sadly I drive to work every day and love using my car for the freedom of being able to get to the beach, to class, to do the shopping and visit friends.

The mechanic called and said it looks like it’s a computer problem but they aren’t sure what’s wrong. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
