    No License, No Car, No Money

    ...so what else would I do? I live in a city, I can't bike everywhere, it's too far. I wish I had another choice though, wish i could at least call a cab a couple days a week, especially in this city where the busses are not something you can always rely upon.

    Bus Bothers

    I don’t like catching the bus. I hate the uncertainty of not knowing if today it will show up or be 5mins late or 10mins late or half an hour or even longer.  To get the bus to work I have to catch two buses – the bus stop for the second bus isn’t...

    Ugh

    Well, I screwed up a lot as a teen and never got my license. Then at 19, got caught driving without it. Now I've got a bunch more loopholes to jump through before I can get it back so public transportation's all I've got. Kind of sucks, but I do save on gas money.
