buying a car. i can’t take it anymore. i despise public transportation. gas is expensive. but i just want a day or two or three of commuting by myself. i miss my car. I miss not having to wait for stopovers. i miss being to leave whenever the hell i want.
with my car, i’ll be sure to appreciate the economical prices of taking the bus in korea. but i want both. GODDAMIT I WANT MY ROAD TRIPS lol.
and, i’m broke. i’m asking my mom for 6k LOL. the car is costing me around 2k…
cuz the car is around 2k and the insurance is like 300bucks for 3 months-ish. (cheaper if I paid all at once for a year but, i don’t have the funds for
atm.. only enough for the car and stuff)…
2.5k – dorms (it includes 180 meals i believe).. last me 6 months
2.5k – tuition for university (unlimited classes)
1k – help me to survive for a month or two in korea
..until the money rains.
i get my flight reimbursement around 1.3k and my paycheck.. around 1.5k .. so just around 2.5k usd next month.
my friend owes me 1k.
i’ll have around 3.5k or 4k, depending how much i have left in my bank account.
but like, 2.5k goes to the university for the korean language program tuition. so i only have like 1k left -__-;; .. which my friend hasn’t even paid back yet. (non of u guys, a friend here), cuz she’s tight on money.
damnit car! but i spent a month and a half obsessing over it and wasting time. i just want it done and out of the way!!! I remember getting my tiburon, all those months of dying on the inside for my own new car.
now i can finally have a car. it’s kinda ugly. daewoo rezzo. u can google it. it looks like an egg. but the fuel is real cheap (For korea).. probably $4/$5 per gallon of LPG (liquid petroleum gas)… propane. gasoline is like $8/gallon-ish here. it’s in liters. not gallons lawlllllllllllllllllll.
but i mean, korea is small. they don’t drive that far during the week. but still, at least i bring it back down to california gas prices with an LPG car. it’s only like a $1/liter~ish.
i think the car will give me more of a life & freedom.
so.. money will probably rain the end of july. i hate when money fluctuates with transitions and stuff.
g*dammit, i have to go to the embassy and extend my visa. twice. -___________-;;
for the long-term, i’ve been opening accounts.
got like a credit union and a regular bank account. i’ma open a brokerage account w/ a linked checking in the future. fidelity and charles schwab have unlimited free atm withdrawals from any atm worldwide and free incoming transfers. I wish they’d have free domestic wire transfers so i can wire money to u guys or others that need money
. oh well, i still have my wells fargo account to do that.
hopefully by the time i’m 25, i’m done with school, almost done paying off all my debt, and starting to fund a retirement account while trying on some businesses here and there.
right now it’s school & drinking LOL. I see people in their late- 20′s slowing down and wanting to get married so, i don’t needa worry about overly accessive drinking in the future. But I have to crack down on my hanging out.
there’s nothing to do here. if i say i’m busy, it’s a lie! lol..once i move to the city, i can become fully korean and say that i’m always busy! My only party day will be friday night. I’ll be too busy during the week for Korean & finishing my degree. I’m pushing for staying in the dorms so I can focus more. If I live alone, I don’t get ANY shit done AT ALL. Too easy to slack! I don’t trust myself, lol.
I’ll have easy access to the library, a built in gym, and Korean friends to practice Korean. Plus those meals, I can be lazy and not spend so much on food. I can just have a shake and kimbap/omelettes and that one mail meal from the cafeteria cuz i don’t have space to store food.
I was so lucky with my fridge here, lollll. full size. lots of other TaLK people have like college-sized mini fridges. o_O;;
Friday is apparently always Anielle’s party day. lol i mean drinking day. I don’t get why she doesn’t Xanga anymore. She’s having helluva better time in her first 6months than I did!! Freakin she’s only a train away from Daegu or Busan! SCREW THE SEOUL PERSPECTIVE! lol… I’M SO FUCKING JEALOUS. LoL. AND she has the peace and quiet of a rural surrounding. WTF MAN. GET ME OUTTA HURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
