Yesterday was kind of big for me... I drove for the first time since putting my car in a ditch last Saturday. I was driving along, got a text and looked down - when I looked up, I was about to hit a mailbox so I swerved (and may have hit the gas instead of the brake), lost control, went up a bank, and ended up in a ditch. My side airbags went off and after seeing the tracks I made on the bank, I am shocked that I didn't roll it. Other than a bruise on my shoulder from the seatbelt, I wasn't hurt at all and my car is fine (taking it in today to get the airbags reset). I freaked the hell out though, crying hysterically to the cop who came by and my parents when they got there. My mom asked me if I wanted to to go the hospital, which I found out later was because she didn't know what to do to help me calm down. That day, I was convinced I would never drive again but after bumming rides to and from work from my parents for the last week, I was kind of glad to get back behind the wheel. Hopefully I get my car back before Spring Break starts, so I'm not stuck at home for the entire 5 days! Of course, money is also a concern right now - paying my ticket halved my savings account; I get paid again this Thursday but I don't think I can afford to fix my car AND make my car payment on the same paycheck. My insurance may cover it but I'm not sure if my dad wants me to use it, because it will up my premiums. Ah well. Things will work out, I suppose.

    That is rather scary what happened. I'm really glad that you're alright. Good for you that you got out and were able to drive yesterday! :) That's great to hear.

    Sorry that it took a chunk out of your savings, though. Whatever decisions you make to pay for it I hope you stay safe. That's the most important thing.
