Things can get worse; automotive troubles again

Just to prove that things can get worse, they got worse. This morning I was at a light one block away from work when I noticed steam from under my hood. Oh boy, here we go again. I watched the temperature gauge the rest of the way to work and it looked fine. I parked, opened the hood, and noticed the ground was already seeping with green coolant. Lovely, something busted in the cooling system, again.

I've decided it's time to get a new car instead of continually repairing the current one, but my situation doesn't look good. I definitely don't have enough in my emergency savings and my checking is much worse. I just moved so for the month of May I'm actually paying for two places (which reminds me I still need to write my current landlord a letter of intent to vacant, argh).

I wouldn't mind staying with a Toyota Camry, my current make and model, but a 2003 Toyota Camry with 38K miles goes for 14,000.... way out of my price range. The lowest one only goes for 3,000 less, so I'm screwed.

There's a trend going on at work right now of people getting motorcycles. It's a novel idea, but I'm still weary of motorcycles. I don't know the first thing about them and have no idea how they handle. It would be feasible financially, but otherwise it seems questionable. Perhaps not then...

Ugh... I'm hungry too. Stressed, hungry, and getting moody. Bad bad bad.
