My life experiences, from the exciting to the mundane.

Living in the city, I'm within walking distance to work, church, Metro, and plenty of shops and restaurants. Fortunately, I do not need or own a car. But as I was out walking this evening, I saw this car and did a double take. This is a Dodge Caliber. I want one. But I don't need one. It would be nice to have the freedom to not be reliant on Metro--especially on weekends when delays and track work are inevitable. Perhaps my want stems from my lack of owning anything more expensive than the bed I purchased last winter. If I need wheels, I have Zipcar. I don't own a condo or house, but rent a studio apartment. The most expensive things I do have, like much of America, are student loans and some credit card debt. And, until those are paid off (only 3 years left on that student loan!) I won't even begin to seriously consider a major purchase. Window shopping is fun, though! :)
