4 Days and counting

It has been 4 days since I've driven Jimmy.
Yes, 4 days of NO driving for Liz.
Jimmy is turning into Becca's vehicle (even though her super cool sister, Liz, still puts some gas in it).
Oh sigh, I guess in some regards I miss driving but in other ways, I don't miss it at all.

Things I LOVE about not driving:
  • not having to find a parking spot on campus
  • not paying an arm and a leg for gas
  • it makes me walk more, which is good for me
  • I get to ride in Dan's truck
  • I get to ride in Natalie's car, which smells good
  • I get to ride in my mom's van and it has a/c (a definite plus)
Things I don't really like about not driving:
  • being dependent on others for rides
  • still putting gas in Jimmy sometimes for my sisters (even though they are the gas hogs ha)
  • not being able to leave school in between classes
But, I can live with it so I may just handle being car-less for awhile.

I feel exactly the same way! I pretty much hate driving especially up here where its super chaotic but then I like being able to leave and go whenever i want. see, i got a uta bus pass for $20 a year being a student at UVU so i am going to ride the bus some days now to save gas and to get away from driving thru all the construction going on on the freeway! I think its a pretty great idea!

that's so cool! I think you should ride the bus. I know this will sound weird but I think I would love public transportation just get to see so many interesting people!
