Well, I finally did it! I bought a car.
And I couldn't be happier with my choice, the Kia Soul. It's cute, and sporty, and full of fun. I did have to spend the entire day in the car dealership going back and forth over the price. And I will gladly hire out my negotiating skills for anyone in need of a new car, but give me a few weeks to recover from the stress of it all first. Stressful, but in the end...it was worth it.
Even if I did practically starve myself today.
On my way home (at midnight) I stopped by McDonald's for my first meal since breakfast. I blasted classical music on the satellite radio, and relaxed to the mood lighting on the multicolored lighted speakers (they came standard on the car, I didn't pick them). It was like being a kid again. I have a shiny new toy, and I can't wait to play with all the features.
Right after I sleep for a few hours. Negotiating is hard work...don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
Until the next time...I'll be pairing my phone via bluetooth to my new car!
