I’m Crowdsourcing My Next Car Purchase Decision

All my car people, I need your advice! I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that I’m moving to San Diego. When I move there I’ll need a car. No more public transit or riding my bike to work for me unfortunately.


My original plan was to do a two year lease on a car. That seemed like a good idea until we broke down the mileage. 12,000 miles a year just wouldn’t cut it for me I fear. The overage charges for a lease are pretty high and the amount of money spent over the two years is closing in on the cost of a decent used car.

So that leaves me with buying a car. Deal is I might only be in San Diego for six months so buying a car to own for years and years might not be practical but at the same time I don’t want to suffer through six months of a clunker right?

Here is where your advice comes in. I’ll list a few needs and maybe you can give me some ideas of what car to get, should I go used or new and maybe even where to buy it in San Diego? Continue reading


My photography professor gave us a project to work on and tomorrow he wants to see some of what we’ve thought up, taken shots of, etc.

The theme is “Public” and the first thing that popped into my head was urinalsPublic restrooms, isn’t that what you thought of?  I also thought public workers (firefighters, utility employees, police, etc)… But I have easier access to public restrooms and you’re supposed to follow your first thought anyways, right?

Here goes what I have so far.

Thoughts?  Suggestions of something else I could do?  The next project will be titled, Private.  So maybe I’ll go into friend’s restrooms a sneak shots of the medicine cabinet or the bathroom itself, something equally awful.  I could also put a note on Craigslist and ask for ppl who would model for private moments with their significant other or their insignificant other, whichever.

Welcome any thoughts!

Craigslist, Hmph

So, beyond being on a few missed connections, kinda funny really, I have never used Craigslist.  Today I did however and made a whopping three posts, whoa!  Oh and one bulletin board/forum post so I guess that’s four.

Yeah so anyways, I need to get back to my studying/reading/writing/brainstorming.
