Apparently the last time I did an entry (of substance) was July/August 2016!?

Well, not to go into great detail, after that was my birthday. I turned another year older.

Then I spent Thanksgiving with some friends. I used to be super close to them, but then after being ex-communicated or whatever from them, it still feels weird around them.

Then I spent Christmas with some other friends. That was whatever.

2017!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Church on New Year's Day.

Then I was in a car accident on January 5th. I was okay, but my car was heavily damaged. (behind the cut for a picture and what happened).

My car is the top picture and the car that hit me is the bottom picture.

Now that I've calmed a bit, I was in a car accident. I'M OKAY! No pain anywhere and no soreness. this happened about 4 hours ago.

No one was injured but my rear passenger door can't open.

Police reports were made and I exchanged insurance info with the other party and contacted my insurance company.


I'm STILL in the process of getting my car repaired! It took from Jan 5 to Jan 27 to get the okay to take it in for repairs! A few days after that I was told it was going to take 3 week for the repairs but I would get weekly updates about the progress.

But...I might still end up loosing the car. See, the way I got the car was through uber/exchange leasing. Weekly car payments taken from uber earnings...however, I was only with uber for like 18 days, but if I continue to make weekly payments I could keep the car. Why might I lose the car? Because I couldn't keep up with the full weekly payments. They were about $100/week and I was doing about $60/week...so everything was getting behind. If the lease goes 21 or 28 days without full weekly payments, they can start the repossession process. Of course, during all this time I was calling the lease company near daily and would be on hold something like 20 minutes before giving up with the call. I would also email them and it would take 2-3 days for them to reply back to me...but it was always a stupid automated response and even longer to get a response to that was from a real person.

I borrowed money from my mom, but I'm back in the same position of needing to pay for this week so it doesn't get 21-28 days behind. I'm trying to sell off furniture in storage but people keep flaking on me.

So frustrating.

Today I went back to my first temp agency. They didn't have anything right then in the area I wanted, but they had a 3 day gig. Next week I'll be proctoring an exam. Future lawyers taking the Bar Exam. I wish I was something more, but at $13.50/hour and 10-12 hours a day, this is very much welcome.

That's about everything with me. I know I left stuff out, but I'm on a time crunch – my niece is waiting for me to take her to pick up food. Hopefully next time I update it won't be another 6 months. lol

yikes!

so apparently I haven't posted since November! Oops. If you want to know what's been going on, you can read about it here and here.

But for some good news!

I GOT A CAR!!!!!! 2015 TOYOTA YARIS! 4 DOOR/HATCHBACK
It's a previous rental car, but it passed inspection so that's all that matters to me.

I signed the final documents today!

Now, I'm sure you're wondering how I'm able to afford such a new car?

Well I've entered the world of rideshare driving! For about 8 months or so (about as long as I'd been previously working), I was using uber and lyft to get to work in the early morning or from the grocery store when I had too many bags to carry on the bus.

So, uber has this program, I researched this for close to two months (well before I was let go from the temp agency job) and spoke with other drivers about not only driving for uber, but if they used this leasing program, where if you don't have a car, you can lease one (for about 3 years) and the weekly payments (between $100-$120) come out of your paycheck from driving for them. There was also a $250 down payment as well as this specific insurance add on that drivers needed to have. Basically between car insurance and car payments, I'm looking at about $553/month, not including gas. Car maintaince it taken care of/provided by the leasing company. I let them know I need the car serviced and they send me a voucher to at at someplace like Jiffy Lube or Auto Zone and it's take care out.

It wasn't until my hair dresser mentioned it, that I thought I'd apply. They most they'd do is say that I don't qualify and I'd be on my way. It took about a week to actually get the process started, then on June 24 I went to look at cars that I was approved for and decided on the Toyota Yaris. It was nearly another week before I heard back from the car sales guy I was working with. He called me yesterday while I was in class (I have good news about that in a bit), saying that the car was ready for me to pick up!

My niece and I went to the Hertz car rental, signed more paperwork and then I was given the car keys!

I haven't decided on a name for the car yet. Any suggestions?

It was funny, when I called to tell my mom, I was like, "I posted something on FB that I want you to look at while I'm on the phone." and of course she had problems getting FB to open and she was like, "I'll just look at it later." then she added, "did you get married?" I was like, "really mom?!" No, I want you to look at it while I'm on the phone. I'll text you the picture." then I had to explain to her how to view a text while she was still talking on the phone. When she got the text opened, she was like, "who's car is that?" I said it was mine and she was like, "really?! your car?" I told her yes and that I'd just signed the papers on it the hour before. I explained to her, some, how I was able to get the car, we chatted for a bit, then the call was over.

Now I have to tell my sister. haha
