Big high: Yay! I got accepted to nursing school! I have the funds to enter in August '05. Seems so far away but I have to save up since I won't be able to work full time, and we live in an expensive city. And I still have half my general Ed classes to take. So they guaranteed me a spot that semester. :hatparty:
Big low: Our car was parked on the street last night and was nearly demolished by a hit-and-run driver. They were going so fast they took out the car behind us too. So now we don't have a car. Luckily I can walk to work but now have to take the bus to school, and one-hour trip each way. The police were sure they were drunk because we were sideswiped from the opposite direction, meaning the car drifted from the other side of the street and smacked into ours at about 30 miles an hour on a 20mph one-way street they think. Why us? Of all the cars on the street to hit...I live in a very affluent neighborhood, in an apartment surrounded by incredible houses, and we are probably the last person within miles that could afford to buy another car. I love my car so much. It was so forgiving when I was learning to drive in December after finally getting up the courage at age 25. Now she's gone. I feel so guilty because she wasn't parked in her regular spot...we left her on the street while we went upstairs to make a shopping list for the store. When my hubby heard the metal-crunching collision I knew it was the Beast and I burst into tears. Our poor baby. It sounds silly to say that, but it is the first car we own together and we are very very fond of it. We haven't even had her for a whole year yet. We paid cash from a friend and it has been running perfectly. Until now. And our insurance is the minumum required for CA meaning it won't pay for our damage, just damage we inflict upon others.
While I'm at it, I hate drinking and drunks and anyone who dares put someone's life and/or property in their own hands. I'm sure I could never work in the ER because I would see the chaos that comes from idiots who can't handle themselves and end up hurting others. I would just want to strangle the culprit first and then fix the pt. :angryfire
Thanks for letting me vent.
