Two weeks in a row I've done a fair bit of driving with fellow twins. There's not a whole lot of good roads near me and not a lot of activity from the local owners so I have to drive an hour or more to the bay to join some drives. It's usually pretty worth it despite having to wake up early D: A few pics from last weekend and this past one:

I'm not that big of a car guy... more than most people, I guess, but not as much as the people I've been driving with. They're a good group though. The whole driving enthusiast thing has been a great experience for me so far and I've been enjoying my car very much. It's been one of the best decisions I've made as far as my own enjoyment but also opening up more opportunities to meet new people and experience new things.

In other news, going on a cruise this weekend and my favorite singer/songwriter/band is finally coming to Sacramento next month. Can't complain too much I guess :P

When you're soo close to your dreams. you've worked soo hard for two years to finally reach this point where you've looked back and notice "Omg Ive come so far with my life in such a short time." But remembering two years ago how frustrating and EMBARRASSING it was to take minor steps. These small steps have meant soo much to me that when you think about it, it brings me to tears. You're so close to getting your dreams and every person who has ever believed in you and invested time in encouraging you and helping you to be the best of their ability can finally see what they've helped build. These minor steps and small obstacles have brought me some of the best friends i have ever met. some of the best Professors Ive ever had believe in me and honestly a love that believes in me even when i didn't believe in myself. Even if i fail horribly i'm not going to be sad or depressed because Ive gained so much more the knowledge for my intended career. I've gotten a mentor who genuinely cares for me like i was her own son. Some friends who want nothing but luck and hey i even got more confidence in my art.

:shrug: What can i say? Queensborough was the best decision I've made in my entire life.

MOVING DAY!

It's stressful and there's still a lot to do, but I'll be glad to be out of this apartment finally.

Not sure if this is right for the Happy Thread, because it comes with very strained feelings, but...

I finally set a date. June 1st: I'm moving out, regardless of whether or not my mother is financially ready for me to do so. I'm running out of money in my savings to pay our bills and my best friend is just about at the end of her rope in waiting for me. It's now or never.

On one hand, this is amazing. I want to move out. I have a steady job, and with the bills being split three ways (myself, my bestie, and a co-worker that she knows well and trusts), I can finally start putting money away into my savings again. It will give me freedom from my mother, and the chance to start living how I want to, instead of this weird not-quite-a-child-but-not-really-an-adult phase in which I have been stuck. This feels real to me. I know I have mentioned moving out before, but we are doing real planning. We're looking at places, figuring out furnishings, setting rules - all steps that I had not taken before. This is honestly happening; there's no stopping it now, and I'm excited.

On the other hand, I'm terrified. Every time I think about it, I get close to a panic attack. I'm not worried about moving, or with whom I will be living. I'm confident in all that. The trouble is Mom. She has a job, but it is very, very, VERY part time - not even a fraction of enough to support herself. I told her a month ago about this plan and I haven't seen her make any effort to figure out her living situation. She'll need several roommates, or some kind of halfway house-type accommodations. I am doing what I can to offer her information, but even I don't know where to start exactly.

If it follows the pattern of everything else these last few years - and it will - then I know that will end badly. So, so badly. Mom took the news calmly at first, but she is going to start freaking out towards the end, when she realizes I'm serious, when she realizes I can't help her anymore. She's going to do everything she can to hold me with her, but the truth is that she no longer has anything that she can take from me. Even having the car repossessed really didn't affect my focus. I have the money in my savings to both replace a vehicle (with a clunker, maybe, but it'll be something) and to keep up with the bills in the meantime. Nothing has changed, despite the setback.

She only has one thing left that can hurt me, and it will hurt me, but it won't make me change my mind: she's going to threaten suicide. It's always been there, more and more in recent years (how she gets put on all kinds of mental meds for this but I don't get a second glance for my overwhelming stress, I will never know). It will hurt like hell if she threatens it, devastate me if she does it (and there is a very real chance of this happening), and frustrate the hell out of me that the price for my stability is a dead mother and the ire of her debt collectors, but like I said - it's now or never. My options are exhausted - I am exhausted - and this is what I have to do.

So mixed feelings. Joy and stark terror. Please, just this once, let this one, single thing end well for me.

So after a few months of dealing with some financial troubles due to some pre-orders hitting early and messing with my budget screwing with my ability to make car insurance payments on time I finally just decided to let my auto insurance coverage be auto canceled. The good news however is I was able to get coverage from Geiko, with some better coverage, for 300$ less a month then what I was paying!

I'm looking at my ledger I keep in gnucash and it's amazing the difference my financial outlook looks like with an extra $300 a month!

$300+/month for car insurance? What the hell is your coverage?

I was considered an at risk, low credit rating, un-insured, new driver when I applied for the insurance when I bought my car last summer. I hadn't had a car for 3 years and was driving off of the policy of a friend who let me borrow their car. Now that I have over 6+ months with insurance constantly all of those things went away and I can get normal rates for my credit score. Also, michigan is a no fault state so premiums are higher. Either way, after being used to paying only $70 a month before my Sable died having to pay over $400 a month was ridiculous! (though the best rate I could get)

I'm just happy today after the last week and a half or so of being in a crappy mood. No reason for the sudden upswing, but I'll take it.
