My car is a piece.

I am LIVID! I drive a VW Passat, 2oo2. I just got it back a week ago after spending 1700 on repairs. Today, it starts smoking, but I only drove one block, literally! I took it to the same shop that fixed it the first time and they tell me its going to be another 3000! Thats WAY too much for me to afford... but then they tell me it could catch on fire while I am driving it. I don't know what to do! I am only 20 years old and I am drowning in debt! I can't get anywhere in life, I am just idling in this same spot! I am never going to be able to do anything with myself! I need to find a new job, one thats closer to home, because I dont have a car! I need to find ways to get to and from school.. the worst part about this is I have a test in 3 hours and my mind is foggy and I cant think straight! I am so upset! I never want a car again! I cant handle this! I cant worry about stuff like this when I have school to worry about! I dont know what to do! I know all cars break but I just took it in and told them to fix everything that was wrong because my uncle was loaning me however much I needed. Now, I cant ask for more and I dont have a car.

This situation is no bueno...

Change, Humus, and Life.

I am proud to say this past year I have changed a lot. I feel as if I have a better understanding of my life and grasp on my future. The experiences I went through to become who I am were not always pleasant and I wish I would have experienced some of them at different times, but dwelling on the past, wont make it change. Instead, I have learned to laugh at myself and really find humor in the stupid situations I brought myself into, thankfully I think things through more now. New experiences used to overwhelm me, but as I have gotten older I have less first times and more last times. Growing up, those first times were so intense that it consumes you and at the time you don't want anything else. I have always wondered if people saved that first moment till they were older, would the feelings fade? Through my life, I have learned change is constant that no matter how permanent something may seem, it isn't. The only constant in life is family and luckily mine is huge. Believing that change is constantly happening has helped me live my life more freely and I am more grateful for every experience.

So... today I was introduced to my new favorite restaurant. Its called Dimassi's off of I-10. It has so many great things. I went there for the humus, at first, but then learned that had pita bread, falafals, and other great things! The gentleman who helped me was very nice and helped me find the things I was looking for! I hope everyone who lives in Houston, gets a chance to try it!! There is also a great trail I went running down today with my dog! She loved it! It's very green and has a awesome view of the woods and lakes surrounding! A great place to get away!


Ughh... then there's work. I have no life because it consumes it.. I also have two test tomorrow in Arabic and Math. Hope everyone has a great week!

Welcome to the Good Life.

I woke up this morning and got the random urge to start blogging. I don't have Facebook or Myspace and I needed something to preoccupy my time. Something other then studying and work, which takes up my whole life! I haven't had time to work out properly or really take anytime for myself lately.. it is ridiculous how much I work to get no where. I am so deep in debt, it's disgusting and the harder I work the more it feels like I am failing. Just a few more years til I am done with school, then I won't have to worry so much!

Let's start my introduction, since this is my space. :)
I act as if people will really read this and I know they wont. No one cares what I am doing in my life and if they do, then they shouldn't. I am the most repetitive person, or I used to be. This new schedule really threw me out of my grove of things.

My name is Wynter and I am 20 years old, almost 21.. too bad I don't drink anymore! I am a waitress and a student, majoring in Environmental Science, I love it! I hope to go to the Peace Corps, after I get out of debt! I have a dog.. she is a pain most of the time, but she is mine and I wouldn't trade her for the world. I am very opinionated, which just started. I really found myself this past year and it wasn't easy. I grew up with a bunch of siblings, 10 others. It was really hard to know who I was when they were all trying to find themselves too. I did a lot of things I wasn't proud of, but it made me more understanding and stronger. I have an ideal life and I wouldn't trade it. My family is all I need and that's why I am OK with not having much of a social life, because my family keeps me posted with theirs. Growing up, my mom always told me my sisters would be my best friends and I thought she was full of b.s. since we were constantly nagging one another. It turns out she was right. Friends can turn on you in a heart beat, but family always comes out to bat.

Enough about me for now.

The reason I got this was to keep my thoughts and experiences on file. I am going to try to write every few days or at least once a week. I hope if anyone reads this, that it was somewhat interesting.

The motivational quote of the day is...
"There's no secret to getting started. You simply decide and then take your first step. With each subsequent step, the next one becomes easier..." -Tom Venuto
