Not having a car is a wonderful thing, and I often like to tell people about how nice it is. I do not have to waste money on a really big car payment or car insurance every month. It saves me a lot of money. But there are times when a car really does come in handy. I needed to check out different apartments lately, so I would check the website of many different complexes to try to figure out which complexes that I wanted to visit in person. Thankfully, we have the Internet and web pages that allow me to do this, but at the same time, it is sometimes nice to see things up close and in person first at times.
Another reason that I do not own a car is because I also do not really like to drive. I I don’t particularly like to get on a freeway with hundreds of other people who are not paying attention, speeding, or acting really aggressive towards other drivers. I tried to drive very carefully, and I like to obey traffic. There are a lot of other people who do not, and it really creates stress. It is much nicer to just be close to where all the places are that I need to get to, and I can literally smell the roses as I simply walk or bike to the places that are located nearby.
I took some time to find different apartments that are near the place that I have worked for the past 10 years. There are a lot of nice places that are all located within 1 to 2 miles of my workplace. It does not take very long to get to work each morning by foot, and I feel relaxed and peaceful when I get to work each morning.
