When I was attending college, I came to the conclusion that I needed a vehicle by the time I graduated if I wanted to be free to find a job in my field. I succeeded in this goal, found a job, and never looked back... until now. It's three years later, and I find myself once again car-less.
I love the look of my car, and have no complaints about the way it drives. It will be missed, because the reality is that it needs more repair work than is reasonable for me. I'll have to sell it to someone more knowledgeable about cars. The good news is, I can get to my job by bus.
There are some bright sides to this whole situation.
1. I had become complacent, and this whole ordeal has given me a lot to think about.
2. I'm getting more daily exercise than I have been.
3. I think I'm saving a little money, but that's debatable.
4. I don't have to drive. It's true; I hate driving.
5. I have a little more time. Although my trip is longer, I can use that time, unlike driving.
