Looks like I'm going to be getting a new car.
If everything works out as planned Friday evening my mom, dad and I will head over to the Toyota dealership and buy me a brand new 2008 Toyota Yaris.
Mom's going because her name is on the title to my Subaru
Dad's going because he has to co-sign the loan paperwork
I'm buying this car myself
My money...my car...all mine
With the down payment money I'm borrowing from Grandpa, and the grand they're giving me for my Subaru, payments should be $200 a month over 75 months. (6 years, 3 months)
So I'm looking for a couple things from you folks out there:
Number one: I'm going to need a new vanity plate (new car, new plate) so suggestions for that.
And B: Suggestions on fiscal responsibility. I already know that if things start approaching struggledom I'm going to look for a second job. There's also the opportunity of selling my wrestling action figure collection on eBay. Also, I finish Hesser in December, meaning at the start of 2009 I should be in, or on my way to, a good job somewhere that might actually make me something.
I really, really think I can make this work, but I'm still quite nervous.
This will be the first big...BIG...thing I'll have purchased all on my own.
Wish me luck, give me advice...I'm somehow both excited and scared at the same time...
