New Car Baby!
Yea so as you may have guessed, despite my pessimism of my own TradeMe browsing habit, I have just bought a car. Feels good.
So now I’ve got to find some other way to procrastinate. While not spending money I totally don’t have.
I may have overstepped my mark budget-wise slightly on the price of the car though. So I pretty much have a full month to survive on my overdraft. Now normally this would not be a problem as all I have to do is not buy stuff. Unfortunately with a new car comes the cost of registering under my name, leading to me realising that I had an illegible drivers license.
So how do you solve this problem? By throwing $38 at it and having to endure a three week wait the replacement license arrives. Meaning that every time I go out to a bar, town, or just to buy beer from the supermarket I have to bring my passport which surprise, surprise is going to need to be replaced soon (another $100 or so).
Buuut I think I can survive until payday...unless
