Well. I've been really good about putting $100-150 in savings from every single paycheck since the second I started working. And here, right now, four months later, I have $1,298.68 saved up. Acceptable down payment in my opinion.
I searched and searched ksl.com for a car. SEARCHED. And I found one that was amazing and great and not expensive. It was beautiful. I emailed the person and their story was so so sad. I even went so far as to start filling out a loan application at the bank. Yeah, it was serious business. Then, they wanted to do the transaction through ebay and they wanted to ship me the car and it felt like I was being punked. Guess what? I was. Luckily, I backed out before any real stupidity was made.
So I continued to search ksl.com. And I continued to hate everything. And I continued to want to murder everyone that looked at me. It was a pretty rough week, to say the least. Probably one of the biggest funks I've ever been in.
I decided that I was done with searching online. It was just frustrating me and I hated it.
Today my dad came home from work early and we went to lunch and it was delicious (Mama Chu's, it's right at the mouth of the canyon. It looks a tiny bit sketch, but it is literally the most scrumptious Mexican food. And their salsa? Oh my gosh, to die for). Then we made a few stops at Target and the bank. And I mentioned that I wanted to go look at cars tomorrow with my dad. And so we drove down State St. and glanced at the billions of car dealerships on that street. And we found a gem. Wanna see?
It's perfect. It really is. I already have a few names formulating for it. I haven't been inside yet, so I haven't placed whether it's a boy or girl. But. I want it. We're gonna go talk to the dealership tomorrow. I'm so excited that I can barely function over here. I'm so so so so so so so so so SOOOO SOOO ready to have my own car. I will finally feel like a self-sustaining adult. (I know, I know, I'm ridiculous, but it's true). And then I can go visit Clayton when he leaves me and moves all the way to St. George.
It needs to be tomorrow.
I need everything to work out.
Or I will fall apart.
Hope with all your hearts for me! (I would say pray, but I don't think this situation calls for that, unless you really want to do that...)
Have a lovely Friday night and a fantastic weekend!
