It's crazy how fast some milestones have been flying by since graduation. Even though I haven't started work yet I sure have been busy. The most exciting thing yet has been the purchase of my first car! Best yet, I started off with a dream car.
I got a 2010 BMW 3 Series Convertible. Really a dream come true for me, I've always wanted one and I nearly shit myself when I found this one. I had originally been looking for a Subaru to take to Idaho, but my dad found this online for the same price as the Impreza I was going to get! How unreal is that!?
I was really pleased because this was something tangible for all my work. That sounds greedy but it's true. Getting out of MIT with "nothing to show for it" was really depressing. Being able to get this car boosted my spirits big time.
Now before you start spewing comments about how spoiled I am, I paid for this myself. After I test drove, I signed for the title and headed straight to the bank. But holy crap was that an experience. I did my student loans online, so have never dealt with the financial institutions. My local branch did great, but the corporate level had serious issues with my age I guess and took FOREVER to approve my loan. I won't go into it, but right now I'm kind of disappointed with the bureaucracy of the banking system.
Anyways, now I'm an adult with bills! Woohoo!
