I have a funny little lifestyle post to write today- about a new purchase I made two weeks ago which marks a milestone for me… I bought my first car!!!! So, seven years after acquiring my license I finally bought my own little car. I was a little hesitant about buying a car at first, but my parents encouraged me that it was a good decision to make for my busy life!
My family has always had Mazda’s so I needed to also have a Mazda (our driveway would have looked out of place if I had anything else!) I decided a month or so ago I wanted a little Mazda 2, in particular an older model, because the newer Mazda 2’s are a little too big for my liking 😜 I was able to get my car second hand from King Mazda here in Saint John. The car only had one driver before me, with only 43 000km on it!!!! Meaning it was in great condition, perfect for a recently graduated student/ future PhD student.
Even more recently, a couple of friends and I decided to name my car “Baby Shark” because of it’s colour, but also because of the hit children’s song “Baby Shark” that we sometimes sing at work for pre-school programs. We have our own little song to sing while we are driving in the car now haha. 🦈
I’m quite happy with my decision already and I am looking forward to all the road trips I will take with this little guy. I have also been told that “apparently” I am now one step closer to being a “real” adult. However, I could not have got everything sorted for my car without my wonderful parents, so thanks a million for helping me get this little automobile.
Do you all remember your first car?!
