I got a new car last night!!! After looking around and being very disappointed with my choices, I was finally able to find soemthing I could be happy with. I had to buy a used car becasue I was only approved for a loan of $7500 origionally. When I went to a diff dealership he got me approved for $10,000!!! I got an '05 Suzuki Verona. It's light blue, 4 door with power windows and locks. It really is nice. It has wood accents on the inside, and is very cute. I am very happy. It even came with a warrently, and I got an extended warrenty for only $30 xtra dollars a month. I miss my car so much though. It had a really nice cd deck in it, and great speakers that jerry bought for me for my birthday one year. It just has a lot of memories. I miss it, but I guess I did what I had to ddooo

My car is broken!!!! Of all the times it could have picked to break....I had to call out of work at the college today.I still have to bartend tonight. I dropped my car off at the shop at 9:30, and I still haven't heard back yet. It has been feeling like the transmission has been giving me issues for a while, but my parents are in denial. Anyways, they won't cosign with me so I can get a new car. I finally got approved by myself, but only for a loan of $7500, which is better than nothing, but I won't be able to get a nice car that I really want. If they cosigned I could have whatever car I wanted that fit within my monthly budget. It makes me so mad tht they just wont help me. My current car is a '98 pontiac grand prix. it looks great. The inside is immaculate. I have never had any major issues with it....till now. We payed $10,000 for it about 4-5 years ago, and apparently now, it's only worth $2000. The dealership is willing to trade my car in for $2000 even though the check engine light is on. It's just so frustrating to think I could hav a new car dor a payment as low as $280/month for 62 months with 0% financing, but I can't do it bc my parents wont sign no matter how hard I beg them!!! So anyways, I have to go call the car guy now and see what the damage is, then I'm going to call the car dealership. Everybody have a great day!!!

...is what I desperately need to do!!!! I can't stand living at home anymore. I hate going to use my $7 a bottle shampoo and conditioner and not having any left!! I hate craving something I have bought to eat, and not being able to eat it because my family already did. I need my own space. I just seriously am about to go over the edge. Jerry's having the same issue as well. We can't afford to move in together though. It would be amazing if we could buy our own house....we both want the same kind( a log house), in the same kind of area (somewhere thats not here....we were taking about PA), and decorating it and just living the same way. He's very organized. I try to be, but with school full time, and 2 jobs, it's a little hard to keep my room clean sometimes. I am clean though, don't get me wrong. I hate every second that my room is dirty. I want my own house so that I can start over, and my room would never be messy again!!! I really wish we could do it now. Jer said theres no way though. H e said that one day though he does want to live with me, so I guess for now it's just something I'm going to have to look forward to. I know it's a lot of responsibility, but I am so ready for it. I like to clean, LOVE to cook. I just want my own life, my own space from my family. I'm only 20, and it seems kind of young, but I am just so ready to be independent. I know that it's not going to be a fairytale, and it would be hard because we would have a lot of bills, but it's just something I know I want, and I know I'm ready for. Well, after I graduate and get a job I will be ready for it. Speaking of graduating, and jobs.....I don't know what I am going to do after I graduate. I will have my associates in communications, and I was originally aiming to be on radio, but I'm not so sure I want to do that anymore. It's a job I would do for the love of it because it doesn't pay anything, and I would have to have another job on top of it. I kind of almost would rather have one steady 9-5 job, even if it isn't my dream job. I was thinking of applying at a bank or two in town. They pay decent, I like people, and it has benefits. Thats a major thing for me. Since I won't be at school anymore, I won't be on my parents insurance anymore. I need my own. I have heard even part timers get benefits at some banks. So I was thinking I would do part time at a bank(which is still almost 30 hrs a week), then keep my waitressing/bartending job, and then decide if I want to pursue a career in radio, or something along those lines. If anybody has any job suggestions...I'm all ears!!!

I'm sorry I haven't written in a few days. I have just been feeling very down since Mary died. I have kind of a funny story though...I went to work last night even though it was snowing. I thought it would stop. Well, it didn't. It was like a blizzard!! At 4, I couldn't even get up the driveway to my jobs parking lot, so I had to park in the lot next door that belongs to the firemen. So I park it there, and they ask me to move to a certian spot so they can plow. I do it. Then I hear them snickering about how funny it was to watch me try and get up the driveway for work. So around 6, a guy walks in and says "you have a flat tire". I asked if there was anybody who could change it for me, and he said no and walked away. What the hell??? You're part of the fire dept...you're supposed to help people! Anyways, there as this really sweet guy at the bar who offered to take my flat to his dads shop and see if he could patch the hole. I had a donut in the trunk, but the roads were so bad by then that I was too afraid to drive the 30 mins home on a donut. So we go over to my car, and hes on his hands and knees in his jeans wih no gloves or coat, and he takes my tire off for me. So he comes back later, and says he couldnt find the leak! He filled it for me, and I drove home. It took me over an hour, but I was there safe. So today I took my car to get the tire fixed, and the guy in town who does all of my repairs says to me "this tire is supposed to be flat? I can't find a hole in it!" He then suggested that maybe the air was let out of my tire. So now I am thinking about it...those firemen are such jerks...I wouldn't put it past them to do that to me. Ssoooooooo...the moral of the story is, I bought the guy who fixed my tire that night a drink, I won't park anywhere other than my work parking lot again, and I deff won't go in when its snowing so much anymore!!!

Well, it's official...I am a complete moron!!! I am going to have to go over to Jenn's for some major blogging help. I'm pathetic, I know lol. So no news last night about Mary. We waited all night for a phone call, but never got one. I am hoping that today we will have some news.

So I am trying to do this whole blogroll deal...and it worked for Jenn, but I have put in other people, and for some reason they aren't showing up on my actual page!! I'm not normally this dumb, I swear, but if anybody can help me out, it would be great! Thanks!!!
First of all, I would like to thank everybody for their prayers, and well wishes for my friend Mary. Anything will help, so thanks to you all. Here's the update....I haven't heard any news yet today, but I guess no news is good news. Last night at work I found out all the details. If you have a queasy stomach, you might not want to read what I am about to write....Mary is at Westchester Medical center right now in the trauma unit. She is on a respirator or ventilator....whichever is the one that just helps you breathe rather than doing all the work for you. She had the accident o her ay home from work sat night. She was found Sunday morning around 4 am only a half mile form her home in Pennsylvania. She was rushed to westchester where they immediately removed her spleen, and removed her skull to release pressure from her brain. My boss went to see her. He said she isn't looking good. All we can do is pray. The doctors did say though that every once in a while she will choke and gag and it's because she is trying to breathe against the machine and breathe on her own, so that is a very good sign. She did however, get a fever last night. The doctors think though that it's just her body reacting to the surgery she had, and trying to prevent infection. She is in a coma right now. They aren't sure the extent of brain damage, or if there is any. I am praying and thinking about her every minute. I had to work on the bar last night, and all I could think about was her because she is the one who trained me. I don't know why this happened to such a wonderful person....please pray for her and keep her in your thoughts. Thank you everybody! I will let you know if I find out any more information about her condition.

I am very new at this blogging thins. I am unsure of how to find people on here. Right now I am just going off of my friend Jenn's page and reading her friends blogs. I want to add a blogroll...how would I go about that?? I also would like to learn as much about this website as I can, so if anybody has any advice, or info to help me out that would be great. I really look forward to reading some interesting blogs, and making some new friends!!! I would also like to say, everybody please please please keep my friend in your prayers!!! I appreciate it so much. Thank you all!
Soooo...I am having a really awful day. I just found out a good friend of mine from work was in a bad accident, and only has a 10% chance to live. I didn't know who to call or talk to about it, so I called Jenn. Now, I am feeling much better. I really don't know what I would do without my friends. And I am not going to lie....I have an amazing group of friends. They always make me smile. I am so so so so lucky to have them in my life!
