wow. The things you miss when you go four days without Internet! :[ I’m so glad you’re okay! What a bummer. Is your car going to be taken care of an everything?
It’s pretty hard to say at this point. The insurance companies are still determining “fault” at the moment. Basically, they’re trying to steamroll me because I’m an eighteen-year-old driver. I’m not cool with that, because I know I was doing everything right: I had my seatbelt on, I was going under the speed limit (because it was rainy), I braked instead of swerving, I wasn’t on my cell phone, my music wasn’t loud, I was in control of the vehicle…
So it’s really hard to get my head around the whole thing, and it makes me really angry that the people in the other car are basically falsifying their story to pin the fault on me. I’m 18, but I’m a good driver, and I’m surprisingly intelligent. The physics of the crash isn’t matching their story; it’s matching mine.
Anyway, that’s my rant on the insurance issues right now. My parents are getting estimates on the repairs right now, so we’ll have to see if the car is even worth the money it will cost to fix it. If it isn’t, I really might cry. I love my little Civic. Taylor gets 30 miles to the gallon, has gotten me to and from so many wonderful adventures, and I kind of feel like he’s a friend of mine.
So, prayers for that. God miraculously kept me safe, and I know he can work through this as well. Will it go in my favor? Not necessarily, but I can pray that it will and know that He has a much broader perspective than I do. That’s all I can do right now.
