I've still been thinking about what I'm going to do about my personal budget deficit once I get to UTD. I think what I'm probably going to do at this point is wait until I'm up there and see what options are available to me as far as work study. If I can find something that works, then great, and I'll have plenty of money to keep my car and have a more than comfortable existence. If not, I have three more options, the way I see it:

Option 1: Don't sell my car, and start a blog about eating healthy on a grocery budget of $20 per week...hey, I'm totally up for the challenge, if not completely convinced that such a thing is possible! Maybe I can even turn my appartment into a small self sufficent farm, and someday write a best selling book based on my experiences ;P

Option 2: Sell my car. Collect $6000 or $7000 and have no money troubles, but also have to rely on public transportation. Shouldn't be too horrible, since I'm living on campus. Besides, if I went with option 1, I still wouldn't be able to go anywhere because I wouldn't have a dining out or entertainment budget.

Option 3: Sell my car, and buy a less expensive one. Make a profit of $3000 or so, and probably have just enough to not starve and still be able to go out on occasion (and I'd still have a car to get there!)

Hmm, I think I'm totally leaning towards the self sufficient farm idea emoticon
