I apparently am incapable at succeeding for life to long, we wouldn’t actually want anything to be relatively simple would we?Of course not that is no fun, let’s throw twelve wrenches into the mix! If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball right?
Thank GOD for sour diesel by the way, it is the best strain ever I absolutely love it. I will start off by saying that my trip (where the pictures are from above) went exceedingly well, by far much better than the first trip. We went to Maryland to which I had never traveled. I found out it is much colder up north than down south (obviously). It was fun, peaceful, nothing really to exciting happened other than the IT guy for the installing company farted right in front of everyone! I was like wtf? LOL
We ate at a fancy real pizzeria, the pizza was delicious and for dessert I got Tiramisu which I had never ate before it was delicious as well. We stayed in a hotel that was not as nice as the first one, I was kind of disappointed with it’s offerings or lack of.
Let’s get to the juice of this post though by explaining why my cobalt is in pieces and all fucked up. It wasn’t a bad enough week when last Monday I was wrongfully charged with speeding (90 in a 60 wtf) and following to closely… If I was really doing 90 the officer wouldn’t of caught up with me in a second. Plus when the person in front of you who is speeding see’s a cop they are going to slow down REAL fast, especially on an interstate you come up on people real quick if they suddenly slow down.
I felt this was super unfair as I was on my way to the dentist’s office for a simple cleaning when this occurred. I then was of course late for my dang dentist appointment, had to reschedule luckily only till 2:45 instead of 12:15. I ended up with approval from my supervisor just taking the rest of the day off, he understood the stresses I was having with this horrific Monday.
Then this past Thursday I was on my way home from work and I was running a little low on the gasoline, I decided to stop at a fuel center and get my gas. This was a very busy place to purchase fuel because of the competitive pricing they have, being at five o’clock it was especially chaotic. I decided to fight the crowd and took my place finally in a fuel line. I noticed a larger truck to my right but didn’t think much of it, suddenly I notice his brake lights flash, oh my he’s backing up! Our cars we’re perpendicular to one another so the more he keeps backing up the more nervous I get. I press the horn to let him know I’m back here but he doesn’t seem concerned, he keeps on backing up till CRUNCH! Only then does he realize the errors of his ignorant driving. I rolled down my window and begin to curse him, “I’m sorry!” Was the only words he could phrase. I go into my car to get pen and paper to get his insurance information, I turn around and he’s done sped off. Fuel line empty he had forsaken his place, I was left with dents and scratches on the side of my “new” car. I was PISSED. I called my insurance because I managed the collect his tag number. Filed a police report and hopefully something fruits from this frivolous failure.
Friday is finally here and I am thankful to see the end of a frustrating week, apparently everyone else had also had similar unspoken woes. Speeding faster than usual I tried focusing on my driving to ensure I was safe as possible. I notice while I’m on highway 460 east going towards Salem that a white four door vehicle is trying to merge over into the other lane (or maybe they even drifted into the other lane for another reason?) Either way they were coming over! I tried to gently guide my cobalt to the shoulder of the highway, however I wasn’t steady enough my car loosing control does a 360 and I land headfirst into a guard rail.
Airbag deploys smacking the bridge of my nose, the impact was hard, fast, and unforgiving. I am stunned, I can not believe this is actually happening to me. A man has stopped and pulled off to come check as I have a frightened look upon my face people gaze into my eye’s as they heartlessly drive by. Luckily a young couple from the college stops and stays with me until the police arrive and collaborate my story. I was not charged because I had credible witnesses. It wasn’t cold it was nice out, until it began to rain. What a disgusting day, I was so disappointed.
I am not sure what will happen with all these new downfalls, there is one upheaval though. Yesterday I went to look at an apartment in blacksburg, they wanted $550/mo so I figure something must be wrong with it for it to be such a low price.
I get to the apartment and step inside, to my surprise it is perfect, the tenant who lives there now is doing well at keeping the place livable, with the heat, water & trash included I’m excited to begin my solo life in the big city.
However with Christmas rapidly approaching I’m not sure if this is the right time to be doing anything like this. I need to get $550 deposit, then in January I have to pay $550 rent. I have to pay $300 lawyer fees for that stupid $90 mph thing. Add on another $500 for deductible from insurance and I’m like what the fuck. I don’t know I’ll keep you updated I’m budgeting like a bitch right now. I can’t believe a year ago today I was blogging about how miserable I was in Salem, look at me… I did it. Way to fucking GO HALEY. YOU DID IT. You snagged your office job, (got a new car albeit it wasn’t a Jeep) Lastly being independent. You’ve completed so much in just a short year, you are def going places lady. I can’t wait to see what other goals and dreams we have for upcoming new year woo!
