I’ve been out of school for about a month. And I’ve been in Austin for almost a week. So I guess that means I’m declaring that summer has finally started. Which means, I think, that I have all this time that I should be putting to good use. But what have I been doing?
Getting cars repaired. First my car’s thermostat died. I drove nearly 14 hours with my car running hot and because I’m stupid and don’t know anything about cars, I didn’t think to stop and get that checked out. Thankfully I made it fine and everything was fixed for $200+change.
Took Josh’s car in for an oil change recently only to learn it had a handful of expensive problems to fix. This is a car where you can’t get out of the driver’s seat without rolling down the window, so I suppose we knew it was coming.
Seems like I’m going to need to buy a new car sometime within the next few years, which is depressing, because $$ is easy to spend and hard to earn. It’s evaporating in the heat out here.
Things I should be doing:
Working on book projects.
Playing some tennis.
Getting to the gym.
Saving money/making money.
Working on my fiction 2 syllabus.
Sending out work.
Yeah, I’ll just get back to pinterest now…
