Girlfriends car is dying hard and fast. She has her eye on a 5000 dollar PT Cruiser which is about 5200 after tax and title. It won't add that much to the already outstanding loan she has on the gigantic piece of **** she drive now if we can roll it over, and surprisingly, for a 19 year old driver, the insurance won't go up much either.
Then again, she's been driving for almost a year with no tickets. I was not so luckey/awesome.
That and I applied for an executive assistant position with in my current work place. It would net me about 35k/year starting, which I'm only making MAYBE 22k/year now. A much more livable wage.
