Shylocking Away My Will to Drive

I really am something. Years later, I cannot justify buying a car when there is public transportation around.  I’d really like to drive.  I look at cars and price them out all the time.  I just can’t do it. I am not a money-spender for the most part.  Here and there, I buy things that appeal to me which are usually under $30 and if I’m feeling extravagant a couple of times a year, I’ll make a purchase of max $100.

So I hop on Pop the bus and things are going good. … Continue reading

Can I have your couch?

3:30 is decidedly the worst time to be on the bus. Between the fat children intentionally barking like dogs, spouting swearwords in order to irritate the driver, and the sardine can-esque personal space factor, I rarely enjoy a 3:30 trip home. I would even go as far as to say that when I start paying out the ass for a car in a couple of months, I probably will not miss the 3:30 bus all that much. I have too much to talk about this … Continue reading
