Today...... well actually yesterday was the last day my family had with our not-so-beloved saturn. My parents decided to get rid of it because there is always something wrong with it, or some weird new sound coming from something falling off. Sooo they aren't going to keep paying for car insurance which means bye-bye car. We'll be a bus and bike family from now on. I guess I'm a rare breed because I really like taking the bus (yes even in the winter) and I like the challenge this presents to us as a family. Getting around without a car isn't nearly as hard as a lot of people make out. The major thing is that it'll take longer to get around. Which is only a problem for me because I have serious time management issues but hopefully with time and practice it'll be possible. Plus I'm already used to taking the bus to school and to get around whenever my parents weren't able to drive me. Whenever we do need a car (to get to my grandma's house etc.) we can rent a car for the day. A lot of people at my mom's job think this is craazzyy and it'll be impossible for us to live without a car. I look forward to proving them wrong.

I'm a big fan of public transportation too, so I agree with you on the whole enjoying taking the bus thing. I have a car but I'd much rather use the bus or train to get around, parking is such a pain!

Valentina= a 18 year old girl with an intense love for life, color and style. My family is my life and I’m having a torrid affair with television and loving every second of it. I like my school and I love my friends and I’m learning to love myself too. I love playing around with clothes but I haven’t found the patience yet to be able to keep up with actual fashion. This is a me blog where I’ll write about my life, my outfits and anything else that comes to mind. "It is absurd to divide people into good & bad.

The vast majority of the photos I use on this blog are not mine. Whenever possible I will credit photos but in some insistences this isn't possible. For example I have a collection of un-credited photos saved on my computer. So unless otherwise noted the photos on this blog are not mine. If you see an un-credited photo and it's yours (or you know who it belongs to) let me know so I can either take it down or give you credit.
