My van is “in the shop” right now. I would be driving it and all the lights would start to fade.. and then after a while there would be no lights at all, the radio wouldn’t work, and my directionals wouldn’t light up. Kind of scary.. I pulled into Kirsten’s driveway and it wouldn’t start again. I had to call my dad and have him help me jump-start it. He said it could be the battery.. but he doesn’t really know anything about cars.

I am going to see what the Dodge dealership wants to do.. I am thinking about seeing if they’ll give me any trade-in value for it and just buying a new(er) vehicle. It sucks that this one is dying so fast, but it’s a ’93 and they don’t really build these things to last I guess. I’d rather have a $150-a-month car payment than a shitty $900 car that I have to get repaired every month. Even if I have to give up going out a few times a month, I think it’d be worth it. I have enough to do without worrying about cars. My mom broke her arm and can’t drive, so I can use hers for the time being. But I already feel 100% less independent, having to ask to use her car.

In other news, I was listening to Dillinger and my brother’s friend said “what is this? like hardcore emo?”

  3. yeah. cars. get a japanese car. my oldsmobile, for being an ’88 with a shitload of miles, actually served me well for a few months. my cadillac, a ’93 with 160,000 miles, had a lot of problems that weren’t worth fixing, even though it was a sweet car. my stealth has a minor problem with the transmission kick, but so far and so i’m told it’s harmless…it’s a ’93 with 105,000 miles and it runs like new. the wheel doesn’t even turn to one side by itself or anything haha i was lucky i got a good deal on it though. i know i’ll have to pay 300 soon for the manditory every 60,000 mile timing belt change and stuff, but that’s it…i change my oil frequently, let it warm up before revving it high, try not to drive it hard, and i plan on keeping it for a long time. so yeah. get a certified used japanese car. most dillinger songs are more fucked up jazz than anything else. most bands should have a screamer like that guy, because you can actually understand most of what he’s saying. but mos def my fav xcore band.
