Here is the famous sink! Doesn't it make you sick to think that Danny ate that all by himself?? Pretty impressive though I must say!
This is Lysa, me, Katie, Lauren, and Jaclyne
So anyways, I get home at like 11:30 and I decided that I was going to go down to Sandy. I had plans the next day with Jackie down there and I decided that I would rather go then than have to wake up early on Saturday. So I pack all my stuff up, take it out to my car, and head off. Well I am about a block away from my apartment when I smell something kinda funny. So I pulled over to the side of the road to make sure that my emergency brake was all the way down. Well as I am sitting there, with my foot still on the clutch my car suddenly dies. Definitely not a good sign. So then it won't turn on... Yup it was broken down on the side of the road. So of course it is a relief that I am not far from my apartment at all, but there is still a very big problem... there is a law up in Logan that you can't park on the street from 1 AM to 6 AM, and I didn't know what to do with my car. At this point it was already quarter to 1. Well I ended up calling Ben and Brody to come help me because I didn't know what to do. Of course they were more than happy to come help me out. We drove around in Ben's car trying to find somewhere to push it to, but there was no where close enough. So Ben finally just calls dispatch and gives them the information on my car and they tell him that they will make sure I don't get a ticket. So that was good. I was really glad that he was there to figure out what to do, because I didn't have the slightest clue. So then we end up going down to Village Inn and Ben bought me some pie. Haha, I was kind of in a bad mood so that was really nice of him. I was just really grateful that I have friends I can call when something like that happens and my family isn't close enough to help me.
Well my dad came up in the morning and we towed it back to my apartment so that he can try and figure out what is wrong. Well quickly he noticed that my alternator belt was shredded, hence the weird smell I had noticed the night before. But apparently that was not what was actually wrong with the car. That's not why it wasn't turning on. So he spent over an hour trying to figure out what it was and finally decided that he wasn't going to figure it out right away. So we ended up towing it out to my Grandma's house in Millville and leaving it there. I drove home with my dad to Sandy after that. My wonderful sister agreed to let me use their other car until mine gets fixed so I really appreciated that. So I drove that car back up to Logan on Sunday and I have been driving it ever since. The only problem with that car is that it has a broken clutch that has been taking awhile for me to get used to. I can't hold the clutch in for very long or else the car will kill. So any time I come to a stop light or something I have to throw the car into neutral and just use my brakes. That isn't too hard, but the clutch has proved to be problematic when I am trying to reverse in my crowded parking lot. I can't tell you how many times I have killed the car just trying to get out of my parking place. Haha. But I'm so grateful to have it, it's been a lifesaver! So a big thanks to Diana for letting me use it!!
Well as for my car, it's still sitting at my grandma's house. My dad is supposed to come pick it up so that he can work on it at home but he has been to St. George for a job interview, Clearfield for another job interview and then back down to St. George for a second interview. So he hasn't had time to come get it. He probably won't be able to come get it til Tuesday so that really sucks. But what can you do right? I guess I will just have to wait this one out.
On a bit of a happier note, though. I was contacted by one of the students in the Anatomy class up here and told me that the professor highly recommended my name as a tutor. So she has hired me to be her private tutor. So I start that today. Hopefully that goes well, I'm definitely a little nervous! But I am really flattered that Andy (the professor) suggested my name to her! So ya, that is pretty much what's going on with me these days! Never a dull moment...
