Why Cars > Kids

1. Cars are useful. Kids know nothing except to make you do things.
2. Cars are a set amount of money you have to pay, and you can choose what you’re willing to spend. Kids are a bottomless pit you throw money away into with no ending in sight.
3. Cars are beautiful. Kids are awkward, especially when they lose teeth and  in those preteen years.
4. Cars return the favor when you turn them on. Kids limit when you can have sex which is a huge turn off.
5. Cars let you go anywhere you can think of. Kids limit where you can go because you have to set up all kinds of other plans just to have a couple of hours to yourself.
6. Cars have a wonderfully tuned sound to their engine that is designed to be pleasing to the ear. Kids are loud and annoying by design.
7. If you don’t like the way your car looks when you’re looking for it, you can choose another one. You can’t choose what your child looks like without genetically altering it.

It’s time.

I really want to move away from home. I’m tired of feeling like a child, and the more I’m here the more I realize there are so many things I want to do differently than I can while I’m living with my parents. I want to get out on my own! I want to feel like an adult! I want to start working at a career job in the city I want to live in far away from my hometown!
But my hometown is a minimum wage town and I bought a car that I probably shouldn’t have. But I’m keeping up with my payments and paying on my student loan, buying my own food and clothes, and doing what I can to save money to leave. I’m doing well, I have 5000 saved so far, and as soon as I know a timeframe when I can really leave, I’ll be looking for jobs that might get me by until I can get into a career position.
But how do I deal with it until then? How do I manage to be an adult while I’m still living with my parents? I just want to live the way I want to, and be the person I want to be.

A Random Thought About Work

So my job is slow sometimes. I make sure other admin positions are covered when the other girls are out, so when no one is on vacation, I do my best to find things to do that need to be done. I also go around seeing if the other girls have too much to do that I can help them with. It’s great when I’m busy, I love feeling useful.
It’s even more great when we hear about our bonuses and benefits. I have full medical, dental, and vision insurance, life insurance, and I get free alcohol (We’re a wholesale distributor). And my Christmas bonus will be equivalent to an 80 hour paycheck, although taxed more heavily than my normal paycheck.

Talk about things to be thankful for. I am so very blessed to have this job, and I believe I do my best to make sure my employer realizes I appreciate being there.
