So after all the long hours and hard work I put in at the office over the last couple of months, I thought it was time to reward myself with something nice. I decided to by myself a new (used) car. A black 2008 Volvo S40 with sunroof, heated T-tec seats, premium sound, satellite radio, trip computer… It’s pretty neat. The ride is really nice – smooth and it takes corners just beautifully. This is, by far, the nicest car I’ve ever had the privilege to drive. And I think it’s pretty sharp, too.
This is definitely an upgrade from my yellow 2003 Ford Mustang – which I loved, but it really just never felt like me. As I got older, it felt less and less like me. A 22 year old driving a yellow Mustang is one thing. At almost 28, though, it just felt a little odd. I also definitely didn’t want to go through another New England winter with it! It was time for something new.
