Sunday Confessions

1. I am hopeless when it comes to car things. I have always been lucky to have a dad who knows his way around cars, and I try to pick up any knowledge I can... but when my car battery died so extremely that my keys got stuck in the ignition on Thursday evening, I wasn't really sure what to do. I don't know many people here in Chicago that have cars. And of the people who have cars... most of them are my classmates who would probably be just as clueless about jumping a car battery as I am! Luckily after I had already lined up someone to come out and replace my battery my dad discovered that roadside assistance was actually included under the warranty of my car, so I was able to save a lot of money :)

2. I am terrified to take the train alone at night. I faced this fear on Thursday in order to get to my small group meet up, and even had to transfer trains. The way there was uneventful... but on the way back the lady a few seats down from me was having some issues. I spent most of the ride staring out the window across from us... but for some reason this lady kept accusing me of staring at her and demanding I stop looking at her. There was another girl my age in the same car and we ended up getting off the train at the same stop. When we got up to leave the lady said very loudly "thank goodness, I was about to get my face stared off!!". Me and the other girl just exchanged a mutual wtf-glance and went on our ways.

3. On Saturday I had so much fun finding out I can still rock some MarioKart. My Guitar Hero skills may be a little (ok, extremely) rusty, but I could be a professional Wii Fit hula hooper (haha). I also have some potential to improve at first person shooter games but I'm not holding my breath on that one :P Thank you Chris for being such a patient and encouraging teacher :)

Happy Sunday!

  1. I get scared of taking the train at night alone too! Particularly in new cities but even in the one I've lived in for 6 years.

    1. Now that I've done it a few times it's not so bad, but I'd still just prefer to drive!
