Today was a bit rough, but something unexpected happened.

I was waiting for my order in the drive thru then out of nowhere my car shook violately and decided to die. In the drive thru no less! That was my 'oh shit' moment of the day. Luckily for me and the people behind me I was able to start-up my car and drive off.

I know it wasn't the battery. Just this Decemember my battery was tested and it was more than fine. It's either a dying alternator and/or a dying fuel pump. There is probably something deeply wrong with the electrical system too. I have to replace my light bulbs on a fairly constant basis. Sometimes the light bulb warning light will come on and then turn-off in the middle of driving. The most telling thing that something is deeply wrong is the fact I have to press fairly hard to accelarate. If I don't, the car will hesitate and shift gears very roughly.

Anyways I've felt for a few months now I needed a new car, I just hoped it would last until I found a more permanent/stable job. Sadly, it didn't. So I made the decision to buy another car.

While attempting to eat my lunch, I called a local Volkswagen dealership and submitted my credit application over the phone. To be frank I was too stressed out to eat. All I kept thinking about was making it home/to-the-dealership in one piece. Once I was finished with work I headed down to the dealership.

To make a long story short, my credit application was approved and I got a 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan :D Man I was so happy! Then I remembered my job situation and the car payments :(

Sigh

I think everything will work itself out, like a normally does.
...

Checked my job application status for an User Interface Designer. My status changed from "Under Review" to "Not a Match."

Sigh

At least my time at my current job has been extended.

I guess it's back to the drawing board.
