Spiteful as a woman, but not so nervous,

And dying to say something unanswerable.

It's time for me to renew my parking permit for next semester, and I'm having second thoughts. This parking spot is so convenient.. SO CONVENIENT. But it costs $70 a month. At the start of last semester when I paid it, I logically understood that I was paying $70 a month and that it was a lot, but it still felt like a one time thing and so it didn't sting that much. This time, I JUST PAID it a few months ago and now I have to pay it again and I am realizing that $70 a month is a whole lot of money relative to my budget. More than I set aside each month for taking care of my car... so it would wind up coming out of our savings.

Previously, I parked in a different garage, much farther away. It was something like $33 a month because I qualified for a different kind of permit due to my fellowship. At that time, my current garage would have been just as cheap, but I couldn't get into it because there was a waiting list for that kind of permit.

Now, ugh... All the places to park off campus and either walk or ride the shuttle are north of campus, which means that I have to drive past campus to get to them. More driving, then more walking. Not that I necessarily mind the walking in and of itself, but the time it adds to each day gets old after a while.
