so we just got the rental car (and i was not a part of the decision), it's a 2010 Toyota 4 Runner. i saw the recall sticker that assured me that the accelerator wouldn't mess up. althought the sticker had the word safety misspelled... human error or just passed along? whatever, all the new Toyota's have been fixed up so it's no problem. but what a nice slice of humor my dad had when i said "it's a Toyota?". :)
so anyway today me and my family were going to drive up to colorado. it was at a desolate stretch when the cruise control on the suv screwed up. in seconds the speedometer went from 80mph (the speed limit) to 95mph in seconds. i started to freak out but my dad (who was driving) kept calm and slammed on the breaks enough and put the suv in neutral and shut it off. to make this long story short me and my family ended up going back home and we're going to get a rental car. man i hate panic attacks.
i'm so happy! this saturday me and my parents are going to new mexico and then colorado. it's gonna be nice to see a bit more of america, seeing as this is my first out-of-state trip. i don't know if that sounds childish but i'm just excited.
so today i went to a thrift store to browse around. i found this little travel guitar for $9.00 which i thought was overpriced. when i got to the counter to pay i asked why it was so overpriced considering the: no brand name, small size, awful strings, and dirtyness, and i got no answer. i felt so embaressed that i didn't take a second language, spanish inparticular. just because the area i live in is primarily hispanic, including me, doesn't mean i know spanish. there was no other person around to help so i forked over the money and bought it.
well i've been "out" to my dad for awhile and today i "came out" to my mom and it went so well. i never thought that it would go so smoothly but it did and i'm so relieved.
so anyway i'm 17 and last night my dad told me that me and my sister were adopted. i was shocked but i wasen't mad or anything... just shocked. this is the sort of stuff you see on tv or read in a book, i thought. i still love my parents and they're the best. although i'm still trying to grasp what's been said, but it'll sink in eventually.
i just joined since i don't have anything to do. i'm just home alone with my classical guitar... well i should get going.
