I am thankful for a running car!
So I got my first car at the beginning of last year and I am so grateful for the change it has brought to my life!
In a September 2014 post which can be found here, I mentioned how much I enjoy the upsides of public transportation. I still do! However, there are, obviously, some downsides. Grocery shopping is an example that immediately comes to mind! Oh the struggle of deciding if I should buy orange juice OR milk because the thought of buying both in one trip and having to lug extra heavy grocery bags on the bus was discouraging.
Another example - taking my puppy to the vet, dog park, pet store, etc. I got Melio around the same time I got my car and I really don't know what would have happened if I couldn't drive him around. Haha....I kinda know. We most likely would have been on less trips to the park, I would have brought home smaller bags of food from the pet store, and we would have to beg...I mean, ask...good friends for rides to the vet.
But, thank God for a car! I have a lot of respect for those of us who do not have the option of driving ourselves around. I know what it's like. To me, those pre-car, pre-driving years only prepared me for my updated state. :)
All the best y'all! For those of you saving or waiting on your opportunity to drive - hang in there!
Thanks for visiting my blog! From Guyana to The Bahamas to Texas to New York City and The San Francisco Bay Area, it's easy to say that I've had many interesting and unique life experiences. Interesting and unique are also great descriptors for my career journey.
