Sometimes I am just utterly in shock at how quickly time passes. It seems as if one minute I'm actively engaging in the event that I am now remembering, and then the next minute we are 4 years away from that moment.
Here is my Ford Focus that I bought a few weeks after I moved to California in the late summer of 2012. Man, how much has changed since then. I feel like 4 years isn't a lot of time in the grand scheme of things but I think back about the time when I purchased this car and I wonder if I would have done things differently. Maybe buy a different car. Maybe spend a little less on some things. Maybe make some more time for friends. Maybe go on longer drives out of state (if only I wasn't living in California during $5/gallon gas!).
This car was one of those life milestones for me. Quite possibly the largest purchase I've ever made and one of the major things I still use often that reminds me of all the mistakes, decisions, fun, and memories I had in Los Angeles. Frankly, I'm surprised it's even here in NY with me because I honestly thought I was going to throw money to the wind when I decided to move back to NY.
Not sure where I was going with this post. I guess this being the anniversary of the actual purchase of this car made me reminisce a little bit about LA and how crazy different my life is right now. If this car could talk, I wonder what it would say to me (PS: Complain less).
