ok, so here's why..... 1. had psycho ex-girlfriend who tried to kill me (May '04) 2. same ex girlfriend ruined me for about $8,000 (Jan-May '04) 3. DUI (June '04) 4. Jail due to DUI (only one night, but i'd never been in trouble-June '04) 5. DUI and Drug Classes costing me $$$$ (Aug-Dec '04) 6. Evicted due to break-ins and vandalism from psycho ex(was there 10 years with no issues- Oct. '04) 7. Screwed by a former band (Aug '04) and just yesterday my car gets towed from in front of my house due to neighbor's complaint that it was "sitting there too long". with impound fees, cost of repairs to get it smogged, cost of getting license back from DMV, and insurance hike due to DUI it comes out to almost twice what the car is worth. so therefore, i no longer own a vehicle. i'm ready for this year to be over with.
