I’ve really been slacking on the blog lately; sorry.
I’m still working on getting accustomed to the new job and new city. Or maybe I should say new state. In California, a “smog check” is required before licensing a vehicle. I finally got ’round to getting my Honda checked yesterday and I failed. Tomorrow morning I’ll drop it off at a shop that comes highly recommended from one of the guys in the office to see how much it’s going to cost me to get it legal. Ugh. I was on the verge of deciding to sell the thing and buy a motorcycle (as I considered before). I might’ve considered it more seriously if I wasn’t still making payments (I don’t want to deal with the hassle of arranging to get the title from the bank and pay off the note). I’ll try to hold off on any major purchases, especially since I’m helping my little cherry blossom get a brand new Yaris. (She’s coming to visit over Labor Day, by the way!)
In other news, I’m also working on reapplying to Antioch. I’ve got a feeling that I’ll have a better shot this time around. I’m going to update my personal statement and submit a significantly revised portion of Never Enough. Continuing my education while working a dream job would be almost too good to be true. Let’s see if they bite this time.
