My New Wheels

KIMG1948

It’s a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo, so actually it’s 16 years old. I paid $1,800 for it. Price seems a bit high seeing as it’s got a lot of miles on it. I bought it off one of my aunt’s neighbors. They had done some repairs. (replaced retransmission) on it before I bought it.

Today I got insurance and later this week I will have to give up my AZ license and get a GA license before the state of GA, will let me transfer the title and get it registered.

Then after that is all done, I will really need to get a job. For whatever dumb reason, my aunt was MAD cuz she realized that I had money before and didn’t just hand it over to her. Well now that I bought my wheels; I am almost broke.

Obviously we were both wrong about why I first came here. She thought I was some poor, desperate, helpless creature with nowhere to go. And I thought staying here with my aunt would BE the new job cuz When another relative had said that my aunt needed a caregiver and that the state would pay for it. To make a long story short; Well I have been here for 7 weeks with no job. 7 loooong weeks. Now that I have my own wheels, I will be able to drive myself around to apply for jobs. Not sure why my aunt assumed that I was retired and never going to work again…and by “work” I mean at a job that gives you a paycheck every week or every other week.

 

Shop-a-holics

Hey, I figured out how to post here with my phone. 😀

Today I went to a huge flea market in Jacksonville, Florida. Even though my aunt claims that she wants to move, she still insists on shopping for stuff that she doesn’t need. She hasn’t even started packing anything that she already owns.

I don’t understand people like this. People who are sooo addicted to shopping. People who will literally argue about what they need, when you tell them that it’s a “want” and not a “need”.

Don’t get me wrong. I can shop…when I can afford it. But when someone who gets social security and says they want to move outta state. Well it takes money to move and my aunt has saved NONE!
