So, 2012 went by far too quickly. I think I definitely have reached a zen with my life and have started appreciating it even more every day. I have an amazing new job in Marina Del Rey, where I work with the best group of people I’ve ever met. I purchased my first new car in September 2012, choosing the 2013 Scion FR-S; I had been following it for a few years on the automotive blogs and it was definitely in a good price range. My girlfriend was supportive and the numbers made sense so I did it!
I’m definitely in love with my girlfriend Grace, we live together with our 2 cats and 1 year old Labrador. Happily, I might add 🙂 This year my goal is to lose weight, eat healthier, and all that cliche stuff. I definitely mean it this year though, I have an ambitious goal of 50 lbs to lose. If I type it online in a post like this then I figure I’m committed a bit more.
I think I’ll try and make this blog a little more technical, so in between short personal posts I’ll post things that might be helpful for the internets as I’m always learning and trying new things at work. Did I mention, I love my job?
So, I’ve been looking at cars obviously, and getting my license (They go hand in hand, right?) So, what I have come up with is a 2006 Kia Spectra EX. I won’t bore you with too many details,
Here are the key points:
$3500 Down Payment
$250/month Car Payment (That’s because of a 22% Interest rate! Being 18 without credit sucks)
$350/month Insurance Payment
It’s only had one owner, the carfax was great, it’s a reliable car.
Basically, I am pretty sure I am going to get it. It’s going to absolutely suck having to pay that much money every month, but the reason I want to finance a car and not just buy one is that I want to build credit. That sounds very adult of me…I know. But, it’s a scary world out there, and let’s face it, I do need to build credit and the sooner I start, the better right?
In other news, I LOVE my job. It’s just beyond words amazing. The people, the work, solving problems, the culture. It’s just great, I am so lucky to have this job.
OH, also. I bought a Flip UltraHD…but I don’t want to point out where the channel is because I plan on being silly and highly unprofessional. It’s for fun. (Email me if interested ;])
