I've had the same gym routine for a while- run, do some weights, run, do more weights. That was better than my just run mindset, and now I have a motivation to do more. I want to tone my abs and my butt, so I'll start doing sit ups and butt-busting exercises.

At this point, I don't own a car. During the summer I use my parents and pay for my own gas. My grades keep my insurance low (so in a way I'm working for that, haha.) However, during the school year, living in DC, I don't have a car at all. Parking in DC, especially Georgetown with its narrow cobbled streets and random-ass slopes and hills, is a joke. I use the metro, city bus, and campus bus system, plus the best system of all- walking.

So here are the reasons why I don't want a car and how it'll help me. This is all assuming I love in/near a big city with access to its' public transportation.

  • no need to buy a car. Obvious, but probably the best reason. No car loans, no car payments, no down payment.
  • no insurance payment needed. Also, if you don't have a car, the chance of getting into car accidents is slimmed down just t...
