Still here!

Due to mechanical problems with my sister's car I am still here till Thu!I am seriously beginning to miss my small apartment esp my room!The car refused to start in the morning but some research on the net came up with an interesting solution!Hitting the starter with a broom a couple of times actually does the trick, this is after I had exhausted all other jua kali solutions that I knew.With my fear for being stranded I am most definitely taking a starter mechanics class to shore up the little that I know.Anyway we got to the garage and she got the starter worked on.Back in the boondocks I don't need a car but it seems that when it comes to life here it is a neccesity.Anyway I have like 8 months to go before I have to slay that dragon.I think the main part of what bugs me about not having a car is having to depend on someone to take me around when I am here, urggggghhhhhhh!!!!I will confess, The Acolyte is a proud being.I am used to doing my own thing and being as dependant on people as little as possible (but I still have people that I depend on!).I also don't like being at people's mercy physically,financially and emotionally.The last category has led to some very interesting situations in my love life (not that I am going to share!).
Anyway I still have a paper that is due Thu and I have to struggle to do it even though I find it hard to get work done when I am here!

SHARE!!!!!!! You can't just start a story like that and not finish! that's not right. A car does give one a degree of independence when the public transportation is tosh
