  1. What an awesome summary of your 2013 events! I can be away for many many months, come back and read the annual summary report, and be all caught up.lol.
    Gratz on your first real job, first new car, and I’m so jealous about “Swim in bioluminescent plankton”. How did you decide on a 2000 Ford Focus? For some reason I had you pinned with either a Subaru outback or a Honda Civic. I have a strange habit of juxtaposing a car to anybody I meet.lol

    • I wanted a Subaru sooo bad! The Focus isn’t what you think though, it’s a wagon so it looks really close to a Forester… I chose it because it only had 78,000 miles on it, looked brand new, had no problems and was only $4,800, it’s super reliable, aesthetic and gets great gas mileage! Seriously though you’re totally right to peg me as a Subaru fan 🙂

      • What I coincidence, I just picked up my new used truck in December with 78000miles on it, and its also 2000 model year.lol. Sounds like you got a great deal on it, and I can’t imagine how excited you were with the purchase, and it brings back some old memories of mine…rip 1982 Nissan Pulsar 😦
        I just want to give you few helpful car tips that I learned along the way:
        1. Synthetic oil change. Every 3k miles for its first year and every 4k miles after. You should really learn to do this yourself because service centers charge you arm and a leg for synthetic oil
        2. Radiator flush every year, if you want your heater to blow nice and toasty every winter.
        3. Know what your steering tie rods are, inspect them, and learn to take care of it. Check them after any unusual contact to your front wheel. You do not want your front wheel disconnecting at 55mph. This happened to me twice and I became expert at inspecting tie rods afterwards.lol
