Recently, I bought myself a car. I’ve been sitting on a nest egg for a while now (literally a savings account founded on Christmas and birthday checks since 8th grade) and finally decided to put it to substantial use (other than my compulsively indulgent trips to Lee Outlets). I bought a ’96 Buick Regal from Horning Auto Sales, and while Ronnie Carter (named after the logo from his original dealership) has a few beauty marks and lots of personality, it’s an amazing feeling sitting behind the steering wheel and knowing that I bought him all on my own.
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
