my car and i have been through a lot these past 6 years. i bought her for $1 from my parents when i graduated from college. she and i moved to seattle that fall, then we drove back home 10 months later. i was pretty upset when my dad told me she wouldn't make it cross-country to cambridge. so we had to be apart for two months as she made the trip on a truck bed. i nearly shed a tear when i saw her waiting patiently for me in the driveway. i definitely cried as i surrendered my CA plates.
i hope we can make it back home after this phd this completed. i know she misses those sunsets over the Pacific...
