It's official; I have a brand new car. It will be in my possession on Monday. It's a big thing for me because I had previously been driving a '91 Honda Civic hatchback that my dad bought when I was 10. It had ZERO bells and whistles, unless you count the rigged TDK Mojo (old school mp3 CD player). The process wasn't as painful as I thought it was going to be and I think it's mainly because I knew how much to expect and what my limits were. No spot purchasing a car for me!
Oddity: why am I so calm about this when I just wrote a check for a large portion of my savings?
