01/04/2003 Archived Entry: "A New Car...?"

Today was going to be a really good day. I was going to go to my friend's birthday sware (sp?) and have a jolly good time. Unfortunately for me, my dad made me look up my grades for the last quarter and show him. As I suspected, I did impecably for most of my classes, but that math.... He got rather perturbed with it, so he gave me a lecture and said I couldn't go. ;_; This left me with quite a bit of nothing to do.

Fortunately for me, this "luck" didn't last throughout the entire day. My parents went out to go look at prospective cars to get for me to drive to school (considering how I don't have any right now). They called around and looked at several used car dealerships, but they turned up nothing. At least nothing that they'd feel comfortable buying for me because well... honestly, used cars are quite the gamble. There are tons of people out there who take attrocious care of their cars. That's why they went to a Toyota dealership and bought a brand new '03 Corolla LE. Yes, they actually shelled out the dough for a brand new car. I didn't think they had it in them. If you know my parents, they don't exactly go out and buy several thousand dollar items often (but who does?). I suppose that's good because well, honestly, after the loss of the '82 Corolla wagon, I didn't really feel like driving any other model car (even if it's an FF *sigh*). I love Corollas, darnit! They are good, quality cars. Besides, with 130 hp & 125 lb.-ft, at least I can feel good knowing that my car is more powerful than a Civic. Screw them ricers, they have nothing on me. XD Alright, so I have an automatic, a Civic could have a turbo kit or NOS, or something else, but oh well.... ^_^; Anyway, yep, so now on, I'll be driving a brand new Corolla. I think that's at least somewhat respectful to the '82.

After that, my parents actually let me go out! Yes, even after the whole episode with my dad, he let me go to the party. And to the party I did go. ^_^ Hung out with peoples, had fun, and generally took my mind off all the pressing crap from my dad. I suppose I kinda needed it. Especially since I got to spend some time with some peoples I don't get to see too often. By the time I got there, there apparently I missed all the good stuff, so I satisfied myself with socializing, although I'm not especially good at it. ^_^;

Upon getting home, I was greeted by a bit more speel from my dad, but it wasn't especially long and I eventually got relieved of the lecturing. All things considered, I think my dad has really let me off easy these days. I never seem to do anything to satisfy him, but he hasn't really put his foot down or done anything excessive. Good news for me.
