This day is off to a great start. My car wouldn't start this morning. I popped the hood so my uncle could take a look, and a cloud of smoke billowed up. He just slammed the hood back down and got back in the car. "The starter celluloid is fried."

...

Super.

The solenoid, haha? Those actually aren't too expensive to replace but I suppose it does depend on what kind of car you have an how hard it is to get to the starter itself. Sometimes shops will make you replace the whole starter if it's too much of a hassle to get to. I know how annoying car trouble is, though. :\

Nah, it's not your fault. Cars are always falling apart and most of the time there isn't much you can do about it. I've never driven a car that was less than ten years old, at least, so things are always breaking on mine. ;__;

I definitely CANNOT afford a new car. Monthly payments PLUS having to have full coverage? Noooo, too poor. Being an adult definitely sucks. I miss my parents paying for things, hahaha.
