Goodbye, ScarJo!

Matt and I sold our car this week. *tear* Her name was ScarJo (after Scarlett Johansson) and I loved her. We bought her right before we moved to California in 2009. I’m going to miss her and our drives. She took us all over Southern California and on our month-long road trip through Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. That was such a fun trip!

Somehow selling ScarJo made this whole move to Asia seem that much more real. I’m not sure why it had a greater effect on me than quitting my job or beginning grad school but it did. The person that bought the car is going to be cruising all over Southern California with her and somehow it makes me feel happy imagining ScarJo driving her new owner from Orange County, up to LA, and over to Palm Springs. She’s a lucky car to be staying in California with a nice family. Haha.

I wonder when I’ll drive next? And where that will be. FUN!
