You're not going to believe this.

Well, I've got good news and bad news. (Hm... that sounds like a joke...) Bad news first:

I don't know what's going on here, but it looks like my car might have been keyed? Or at least scratched by something.

Sorry about all the reflection. *sigh* As far as I know, I haven't made any enemies. There's a girl at work who doesn't like me, but it's just because (as far as I know) I remind her of somebody she doesn't like. So I don't think she would go as far as to scratch my car.

I don't think it was there this morning, which means it would have happened at school or work. I'm really sad about it. It's just not worth it to have a new car! I'm not getting this fixed. My mom helped me with the deductible from the first problem and I'm not asking her again. Especially if this is going to be a trend. I'm sad.

Okay, now the good news:

Last term (my first term at school), I took Writing 121. For the final exam, they had us show up and they gave us a subject to write on, for example, we could write about if we thought people in extreme sports should be responsible for themselves or if other people should... OR... we could write about a moment in our lives that affected us greatly, where we would change something about it and the reasoning for changing that something. It's pretty broad, so there was a lot you could write about.

Well I didn't realize it, but they took any and all of the essays that scored a "perfect" and chose the best two. Those two people won $100 and I WAS ONE OF THEM!!! I won a hundred bucks for my essay! I guess I can get it put in the online arts ezine (online magazine?) too, but I'm not sure if I'll do it just yet.

Anyway, I was kind of proud of that. :D

Oh, I'm doing the low-carb thing right now... I'm hoping it will help me lose more weight. Right now I'm inching down by about 0.2 lbs per week. Grrrrrr.

Congrats on winning the essay money! That's awesome!

I can't believe the bad luck you keep having with your car. People are so rude! I bet someone scratched it on accident and didn't have the balls to leave a note.

The Rat here. I'm tagging your cats Buddy and Grace for the 7 random things about me meme. I still can't believe your poor cats don't have their own blog! See our blog for the rules...although it's okay if you don't pick seven other cats to pass it on to. I don't want you to think I'm trying to involve your cats in a stupid chain letter or something...
