On A Teacher's Salary


I'm so excited! My sister got a NEW car - finally! The child agonized over this decision for months, as if it were the only car she would ever buy in her entire life. And after complaining that she would only buy an SUV "because she needs the space dammit!" - she actually purchased a...VOLVO S40.
And I must admit, I'm jealous. This is my dream car. I was literally looking at this exact car in the Fall of 2005. But then I realized that I don't make enough money yet to be a Volvo person. And yet, the teacher does? What's up with that!
i'm so happy for you panda bear!

Man, you are right on top of the blog reading! :) It's just a blogger set up and I changed the colors. You know, because I'm always so bright and cheery! Hehe.

I too am confused about how a teacher can afford this awesome new car, having been one myself (a teacher that is, not a new car). However, she does teach middle school. I myself only taught 4th grade. I think maybe the higher level math skills might have played a part in the acquisition of this car...but wait, she's an English teacher! Hmmm...
