So on Tuesday of last week I went to get my brakes done, cost me $260. When I was paying the man mentioned to me that it may be time to change my timing belt as well. Well, Thursday on my way to work guess what happened? My car stopped working. I had to get it towed to the shop on Friday, 16 miles already $103 in the hole. Guess what was wrong? That is right, timing belt slipped. In all this cost me $2400. $2400!! Timing belt replacement, they also replaced water pump, temperature sensor, freon, oil, radiator fluid, spark plugs, I also had to get the valves replaced and piston heads smoothed out. It took them a week to get it all fixed.

Luckily I was able to work from home, except I have computer/internet problems, so I took ~4 days of my vacation because of it. So that cost me even more. I lost $2400 plus 4 days on Spain. I am fucking depressed about this. I am getting my work computer reimaged next week so hopefully that fixes that.

I have been sad and upset this last week and on top of that Miriam has been upset with me and yelling at me because she thinks I could have prevented this by having the belt replaced a lot sooner, maybe she is right however that does nothing to yell and push blame on me.

Grrr

Ugh, my car broke down on the way to work today. It just stopped working when I was stopped at a light and wouldn’t start back up again. It was weird because the lights didn’t come on my car that normally comes on when the engine stops. Fortunately there was a cop that pulled up not long after and he pushed me to a parking lot, and it was on the way for my other workmate so he picked me up to take me to work. I have my dad meeting me there to take me home. I have gas, I have oil in the engine, and the other fluids looked good. Over the last few weeks I have noticed that the engine has been running funny. I have thought that the plugs and wires need to be replaced since they haven’t been done, and they still need to be done. So we will see what comes up and I will have the mechanic do that as well. I am hoping that it isn’t too expensive. I am trying to save to go back to Spain.

What really sucks is on Tuesday I had my brakes done and spent $260 to replace my rear drums and pads, so that on top of this cost is going to eat my lunch. I am thinking it is time for another car. I have over 145K miles on this one, have had it for 8 years, so it is time. I really need chocolate. I really do. Please someone send me a couple pounds of it.

I really need to get off my ass and make some videos. I could have done it yesterday but I decided to rest and sleep all day instead. I think it is partly the medicine I am on. It doesn’t do good things for me I think. I am not taking it daily anymore because of the side effects, and I probably shouldn’t have taken it today because it makes it hard for me to think.
