I fixed it!!

First of all, thanks again for all the follows!  It really helps me feel good.  And next:  I fixed it!!  YEAAYYY!!  I went out and bought the wires i needed and installed them myself.  The Corolla is running smoother then ever!  I have to admit i was thanking God and feeling pretty good about myself!  Now its off to the job hunt, more photography, and exercise!!  Wohoo!!

Car problems, cameras, and jealousy.

Well I’ve been having car problems for the last three weeks.  Something is wrong with the either the wires running from the spark plugs or the ignition coil.  I’m not sure which and its giving me fits.  I can change the wires which will cost me at least 55 dollars, or change the ignition coil and i have no idea how much that will cost and how much fixing it will cost.  Because i can’t diagnosis the exact problem I’m left with doing either of the aforementioned options.  Both of which will cost me money that i really don’t have.  It’s starting to piss me off.  I’m stuck at home because the problem causes my car to just eat up gas and i can’t afford to spend anymore money on gas.  Hopefully on Friday I’ll be able to do something.

On another note i can’t help but feel jealous when i see all these nice pictures on tumblr and such.  I wish i had a smaller camera.  I’ve seen some of these small cameras that do pretty good shots for like 90 bucks in a camera store.  Maybe i should get one when i get some more money.  It would be easier to use then lugging around my Nikon D40.  And when i go out on walks i could carry it with me in my fanny back and just snap pictures whenever i want.  Oh by the way here’s a picture i took at night outside my house.  It ain’t much, i know, i know; but i wanna post it.  I want to add something more to this post then my complaining

What a week and a half…

So what has been going on since my last post?  Hell!!!  First of all.  On tuesday i went to Goodyear because of a grinding noise on my front driver’s side tire again.  Well, Goodyear has been giving me the run around for nearly three months now so I finally asked for my money back.  The other reason I did so is because Ed claimed the store was being closed down next week so he couldn’t be sure if he could fix it.  So that was it, I had had enough.  I went to a place called Auto Tech and had them look at the wheel.  the guy at Auto tech told me the wheel was in danger of falling off because of Goodyear’s shoddy work.   So i had to drive the car home and park it.  So from Turesday until Thusrday of this week i have been using my Dad’s truck to do my paper route.  And no i was not fucking happy about that shit!!  But the truck did alright.  To make matters worse i had to sit at home because my mother had to use the truck since her car was also having problems.  On Sunday night i began to get a toothache and it kept me up all night.  So on Monday I had to get in my car again and head to the dentist.  I was worried that at any moment my wheel would fall off and I’d have to pay three times the amount to get my car fixed.  Thankfully, the car made it to the dentist and i got some pain meds and penicillin for an abcessed tooth.  I made an appointment to have the tooh pulled next week thrusday.  *sigh* another tooth gone…

On Tuesday of this week i went to pick up my weeklys.  It had been raining since Saturday and that night was no exception.  So i waited until there was a lull in the rain and went ot get my weeklys as well as toss out last week’s weeklys.  The rain started up again and since i had no space to put anything in the cab section of the truck i just decided to toss both weeks worth of papers into the dumpster.  So i was standing out in the pouring rain tossing papers in the dumpster.  I got soaked.  and later that night i got feverish and sick.  I managed to crawl out of bed and went to work dressed somewhat warmly.  In the end my fever broke and i was alright.

Having a fever is a weird thing for me; mainly because I start out feeling cold all the time, and then exposure to cold air makes me feel dizzy, ill, and in some discomfort.  If it progresses enough then i get chills and start shivering.  I got lucky that it never got that far.  *sigh*  Well i got my car back today, well as of now it is yesterday.  It only cost me $437.  I am seriously going to write Goodyear and demand restitution.  Well Good night!

P.S.  Oh everything is o.k. with Tosha.  It was all a misunderstanding.  *sigh*
