So I've known this was happening for almost two months now, but I didn't want to say anything about it until it actually happened in case I, idk, jinxed things somehow. But as of a couple of hours ago today... I OWN A CAR.
I OWN THIS CAR.
Brand new Honda Fit, basic, and I regret to say an automatic, but who even cares, I OWN THIS CAR, MY NAME IS ON ALL OF THE PAPERWORK AND EVERYTHING.
This is my first car, guys, I've been driving my parents' cars and my friends' cars but now I have my own car, zie is mine, no one else's, oh my god, I HAVE A CAR.
...Wish I could say I bought this car with my own hard-earned money, but while I do work very hard saving the world and I've probably earned a lot from a moral/spiritual standpoint, a $20/day volunteer stipend is not the kind of money you buy a car with. My Dad bought me this car for my (now belated) birthday, because he is wonderful and he loves me, and also his mom bought him his first car so he wanted to pay it forward.
NOW I HAVE TO THINK OF A NAME FOR HIR, IT MUST BE NERDY AND AWESOME AND PERFECT, OH GOD WHAT WILL I DO, THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT YOU GUYS OKAY?? look_alive suggested "Dummy", hardy har har (her car's name is Jarvis).
