Now that I am looking at more flexible hours for myself, I am seeing more and more possibilities. One of them is going back to driving on a regular basis. To do that, I have to learn how to park first. Yup, anyone who knows me personally also knows that I can drive as long as I do not have to park. I won't go into the details, but let's just say that I got into an accident backing out of a parking lot. My driver's license has been expired for more than 10 years now.
Another thing about driving again is that I have to get my own car. I can use good old Harvey (this old gigantic pick up truck) but my parents use him to get around. Buying a car is not an easy thing though. It's expensive and I have to worry about maintenance costs. Of course, there is always discount auto insurance, but other maintenance expenses just might kill me.
So why am I suddenly thinking of cars? I guess the bug has bitten me again. I want to be able to travel to relatively near places without having to take the bus or rely on other people to drive me. I want to be able to do my long-planned Ilocos tour. There are the beaches of Batangas. Pampanga food trip. The possibilities are endless!
So, to buy or to not buy a car?
