Carless for the Next Month

So, I sold my car today. Made a big whopping $300, but oh well, it's better than nothing. And I actually feel kind of relieved to be rid of it and not have to worry anymore about it breaking down. It will be a little tough getting around for the next month....but I'll just remember my motto for everything these days and tell myself "I'm just practicing for Africa".

This is a great answer for many questions, such as "Why haven't you shaved your legs?" "Why are you sleeping in a sleeping bag?" "How are you going to survive without a car?" "What?!? You don't have heat in your house or car?" "When was the last time you took a shower?" all around answer....."I'm practicing for Africa"

Had a great weekend with Chad :-) We didn't really do anything for New Years Eve, but we still had fun just hanging out and watching movies. We all (Mom, Dad, Michael, Brendan, Chad, and I) went to the Outback Bowl game on Saturday and watched UF kick butt! Well, kinda lol. They actually had some pretty sucky plays, but somehow ended up still pulling off the win. I'm not a very serious Gator Fan, so I am able to cheer them on, but also laugh when they make pretty bad mistakes lol.

My goal for this next week is to start sorting through my Africa stuff in the other room and start on my packing. I'm kinda excited about it, especially b/c all the cool new things me and my sister picked up at the Dollar Store after Christmas :-) They actually had a lot of handy little supplies for me!


  1. Congrats for selling your car :)

  2. Yay! I need to get on that... I'm waiting till my job ends on the 14th to go through everything I own.

  3. We seriously are going to be pretty close- if you wanna do some Africa traveling, maybe we can meet up when we're both over there!!
