long awaited update….
yeah, this isn’t a photography blog. i don’t shoot anymore, and have little interest in pursing photography at the moment. i’ve been way too busy the last three months with different jobs and trying to keep my head above the water. november turned into a total shit show at the shop as we lost our shell name and had to make a name for ourselves in a very short period of time. i managed to sell over a hundred tires in november, and often had eight different cars on the go between the two of us.
to keep up with expenses i took back my position at kerrisdale and have been working saturday and sunday to provide money towards my build. money is tight, i’ve had to spend over a grand this month in tools alone. because of this, i decided to help out a friend set up a craft show at a local arena. four sixteen hour days later i fell back to my normal seven day routine. as of this moment i haven’t had a day off since the first week of november.
anyways, onto new horizons. big plans for the new year.
big plans? yeah, 400 horsepower kind of plans. i’ve decided to finally man up and build my own car. i want to finally own the kind of car that makes you think twice before hitting the throttle, the kind of car that will blow the doors of almost anything on the road. this is big talk for someone who currently drives a corolla wagon, but i want it to happen.
to make this happen i’m selling my current 240 and taking the funds from the sale to purchase a clean coupe. its a horrible time of year to sell a sports car, but I’ve already bought a car for daily driving and the hatchback has to go.
speaking of daily driver, feast your eyes on my new corolla wagon! 320k on the odometer, blow struts on all corners and a five speed! just bought it on friday for 500 bucks, and once i throw a new axle in her i’ll be laughing.
tumblr is pretty lame, but i think it will be fun to look back at my aspirations a year from now and see what went right and what went wrong.
