I just thought that I would share the news with you. In addition to my new job that I start on Monday, I also have a new car. I have been back in the US for exactly a month today and I have a new job and a new car. Not bad, I think. I really worked my ass off though so I am glad it paid off.
Anyways, it is a 2004 Nissan Sentra in white with 42,000 miles on it. Enterprise hooked me up with a fairly good deal and a very nice interest rate. I am so happy that I have a new car. You know what that means ? It means no more walking everywhere, and no more having to rely on the shitty bus system we have here, nor having to beg people to give me a ride.
More specifically, it means:
1.) No more dirty construction workers hissing at me and talking about me in Spanish. Si, entiendo espanol bastante bien.
2.) No more strangers honking at me and pulling over to ask me if I need a ride. Why do guys think I will hop into their car??????
3.) No more having to deal with walking along a street with no sidewalk. The street that I was walking along had no sidewalk, and I felt like I was in the street (well, because I was). This is because our neighborhood is very new and they still have to build one.
4.) No more having to wake up early to ensure that I have a ride. My housemates leave early so that means that I had to get up early. Like 6 friggin' AM. So now, I get to sleep in for however long I want.
5.) No more having to beg for rides. I hate begging, and I hate having to constantly remind people. Especially since I consider myself to be independent.
6.) No more sweating like a pig under the hot sun.
On another note, yesterday was a nice day. I took the lightrail to Downtown San Jose. I ate at a nice little Italian Restaurant called Bellamia's. It was late afternoon and I just love being in Downtown San Jose around that time, especially under all the trees. I ate some good pasta.
I really shouldn't have spent money but I just couldn't help myself. I love being Downtown and walking around. There is also a very good Spanish restaurant there called Picasso's. I will go there again soon.
Anyways, I am sure I will have more to write soon. Ciao.
