I just realized something as I signed up for this site and was composing a message that I intended to post in the “maintenance” section. I was hoping to get some good advice on what to do but then I realized that I only wanted someone to tell me to get rid of my ailing “popular import car back in the '90s” which now makes a high-pitched noise when revving after being repaired. The more I thought about what I could write about it and possibly make a youtube video, the more I started hating myself. It’s always been loud and stiff both inside and out (the previous owner had “fun” with and also “upgraded” it.) Upgrading to a functioning stereo system with bluetooth would be very cost-prohibitive considering the age of the car. Maybe it is time to a) get a legitimate full-time job and b) save enough money for a car made in the last 5 years that has fully-functional components, and the interior is both quiet and comfortable. This is something I also want in life that I haven’t been able to also legitimately experience yet, a quiet house/condo where I’m alone and there’s no animals or other people living there that I have to deal with. “Coming and going when I please” is the most envious thing I’ve ever experienced in my life.
I’m relatively resistant to change and any sudden change is fairly jarring to me, but I think a series of changes including getting rid of this tired car since I’ve had and driven solely since 2008 might improve my quality of life.
