I am sure each of you have had your own experiences with bad luck, but I feel as if my bad luck has been running high for about a month now. Today hopefully was rock bottom so I can only go up from here right?? Let me just tell you about this awful day and then you can decide for yourselves
Just a little background: I drive a 2000 Ford Explorer and I have been driving it for about four years now. it has over 180,000 miles on it and it gets meet from point A to point B and that is all that really matters.
I decided to make a couple repairs each month this summer, that way I could make my car last at least one more year. Because when I graduate this year the first thing I am buying is a new car! So over the summer I have probably put a total of $800 into fixing this beast and today I was finishing up the repairs which included: Two new front tires, alignment and an oil change. So I take my car into the place at 8:00am they finish all the work by 10:00am. I drive off the premises and almost make it back home when all of a sudden my power steering goes out and the car shuts off....in the MIDDLE of the street. I panicked Lol I called like five people and didn't know what to do, so I finally checked the oil and sure enough there was absolutely no oil in the car . I had to have my car towed back into the place and they fixed the oil "problem" but of course the engine is blown...so a bad situation turn worse. I am crossing my fingers that my luck will change here in the next couple of weeks *crosses fingers*.
On the bright side of things I have officially completed my first Critical Care clinical. I was soooo nervous when I got there and I really felt out of my element but with the help of an awesome nurse by the end of the day I definitely felt like a nurse. And it felt really good. So that wraps up week three of my senior year.
*Sigh* Let me stop complaining and get back to my homework. Have a great weekend peeps
