July was reserved for saving money, acting thrifty and learning how to maximize one’s happiness through conscious and effective spending decisions. Then, my transmission blew and, five days later I am driving a different car. The last few days have taught me to roll with the unexpected, embrace the unknown and go with your gut. What else can you do? On the plus side, I’ve cut back on eating out and haven’t spent a dime on clothes.

Hooray for Scion
