Meet Albus. Isn't he gorgeous?
At first I named HER Florence.
But then I went on a crazy Etsy splurge (there's a REASON I never go on Esty) and I bought a Deathly Hallows decal and then I was like, what am THINKING?! Of course I'm going to name my car after a Harry Potter character. Of course Albus is the best choice. Of course.
I bought him on Saturday. From this little place called Granite Peaks Motors on State Street in PG. It was magical, guys. Mike was SO nice (that's the guy I bought my car from). The girls at America First were SO nice (that's where I got my loan from). I just, had the BEST experience.
I still can't believe he's MINE. All mine.
He's my baby.
Since you guys could be first time car buyers in the future...
5 essential things you need when buying a car:
1- A Co-signer if you are a credit baby and have none.
2- Social Security Card and ID for both yourself and your co-signer.
3- Proof of Income/Proof of Employment. In other words, your last pay check stub (or last two, to be safe.)
4- Your employer's phone number! This one is a little less essential, but still handy. I used mine.
5- Support System. Bring someone with you. Maybe even have someone who is a third-party outsider with no personal interest in the matter. Have someone mechanically gifted look at the car and drive it a little to make sure it's not halfway broken or anything.
Always nice to have ALL your junk in order.
I've put this post off for far too long.
I should have done it the second I got the car. Or at least the day.
But I didn't.
I've been putting off a lot of writing lately.
Such as writing to Jordan. Who I really need to write to.
I just... haven't known what to say.
I don't know how to phrase what I know I want to say.
There's my big news for now!
Still can't believe it.
