RIP Little Journey

Well last month we got one of our classic Ohio snowfalls. I live on a random back road that never gets plowed and on the way to work one day I was coming up to the stop sign at the intersection of a busy highway. Needless to say there was ice, bad tires, and no stopping at the stop sign. I slid into the intersection and got hit on the passenger side by an HHR. Luckily everyone was okay in the other vehicle. I bounced my head off the window and ended up taking an ambulance ride to the emergency room. Clearly, I survived with bashed up knees and a knot on my head. After a day of rest I was back to work.

Unfortunately, I was without a vehicle though. I bummed some rides until my bestest friend in the whole wide world lent me her car to borrow while she was at college. I spent a week driving the Teal Tragedy (her name, not mine) before I made it to my cousin's dealership in Mansfield where I found exactly what I wanted.

I'm pretty much a creature of habit and get real nervous about straying from what I know. Since I had absolutely loved my 2010 Dodge Journey, I started looking at replacing it with another Journey. They had one on the lot that was a used 2012 Journey that was the same color blue but it was all wheel drive which I desperately wanted for the stupid winters here in Ohio.

So heres the cool features:

  • Keyless entry
  • Push to start
  • Excessive big touch screen
  • Sirius XM
  • Climate control
  • Of course I had to add the Browning seat covers
I'm not sure I'm wild about the different front end but I'm digging the fog lights. So thats the update on my vehicle situation.

Apologies & Explainations

SO! HEY THERE! I'm back again. Its crazy that its been nearly a year since I've posted on here. Looks like the place needs a major remodel and some new material so I'll be putting a lot more work in around here in the coming days so bare with me while I get it updated. I'm terribly sorry for the absence.

I suppose I will update you on my current life for those of you keeping up:

  • I am still working at good old Coopers. Next month I'll have survived a full year in the place. Crazy, I know.
  • I'm currently living with my fantastic grandpa in BFE outside Van Wert and looking to hopefully get a place of my own to start decorating
  • I'm now the owner of two baby rats. Yes. I said rats. Surprisingly they are adorable and awesome pets which I hope to post about in the next week.
  • I'm in the process of switching schools to IPFW in Fort Wayne. Also to be explained later. 
  • I totaled my journey in a pretty bad accident and finally got a vehicle that is all mine. Talk about feeling grown up and overwhelmed too. 
I'll admit, I think I'm finally getting my life together and things are coming together really nicely. I'll be sure to keep ya'll updated. I'll also be active in posting my goals for the future because I feel like it will motivate me and maybe some of you readers too. Plus it gives me more of a reason to stick to them.
