After three years, I am returning to the land of the employed. I don’t even know exactly what it is that I’ll be doing, but I know that I’ll be reporting to an office for 40 hours a week and in turn, they will give me money. Tomorrow I head to my five-hour orientation session; after that I should have a better idea of what’s going on.
Since we decided I couldn’t exactly take my grandmother’s car every day, she very generously decided to help me out with one of my very own!
When I was living in Fayetteville, I often drove my friend’s Mazda, so I’m familiar with the zoom-zoom. She’s zippy and fun and I think once I get used to her quirks, I’m going to love this car. Honestly, my first choice was a Subaru Forester, but I decided to go with gas mileage over all-wheel drive. Hopefully, I don’t regret that decision; it’s been a long time since I’ve had to drive regularly in an Ohio winter. By “long time,” I mean never. I got my driver’s license three days before I left Ohio for Virginia 20 years ago, so this should be an adventure. Next stop, my Ohio license! I can’t believe I have to re-take the written test – UGH!
