Murphy's Law and Part Time

July 15th, 2009 at 11:56 am

Murphy's Law states "if something can go wrong, it will"

I paid off my car a few months back (I remember snoopy dancing)and a few weeks ago, she died. Under normal circumstances I would get her fixed and continue on with my life, this time though, it would cost way more then the car was/is worth.

Sooooo... I did a really dumb thing and bought a new car, not new to me, brand new. I bought into the hype and the "deals" and dove off the deep end. Even though I think I got a great deal on a car I have wanted since they were introduced a few years ago. I still have a nasty case of buyers remorse.

I did put 50% down on the final price and had the money to both plate and insure it, but still, I feel a bit weird driving around in a new car.

Funny how things work out though, on the same day my car rolled (well sputtered) off into the sunset, I got a part time job. It's 5 nights a week for between 4-6 hours a night and pays above min wage so my debt reduction schedule is going to step up a bit even with the new payment.

I guess the old saying is true:

"When one door closes, another opens" Alexander Graham Bell

or

"When God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window."
