I’m thankful for my car I was able to get before school started. I worked really hard over the summer to save money to be able to buy a car. Even though I have to pay my own gas and insurance bill, the money is worth it. The places I can go to with my car fascinates me. Prior to owning my car, I used to walk, bike, and take the bus. Compared to my car these other options took way more time than my car, for example, it took me 30 minutes on bike, and 1 hour by bus to go to my church. Now, it takes me less than 10 minutes to get to my church with my car.
