21,250 is gonna be a good year for you. If you play your cards right and set aside a penny a day you'll have 7million dollars to retire on.

I don't honestly, could you stand to be around most of your family 8 hours a day? What's bad for me is I see my dads side of the family that lives in Illinois more than my moms side that live down the street from me.

my family isnt huge so the few i do see very often dont bother me. as some of my family members get older I wish I could spend more time with them.

I wish my moms side were pleasant enough to spend time with. the only one I ever see is my aunt and one of my cousins. The rest could care less about each other, its damn sad. dads side on the other hand I try to see as often as possible.

I like the vast majority of the people I work with. There are a couple that spoil it for me. Unfortunately they have a lot of influence on my happiness.

How do you get away from those voices in your head?

Gonna pick up my 2017 Ford Fusion sport tomorrow. Was going to go with the ats but it's just too small and I've been told if you touch the motor the warranty is over on Powertrain. Ford looks the other way more and you know I will have to do some mods. Just can't help myself.

I was looking at the ATS-V and came to the same conclusion, it is a SMALL car. I was honestly surprised how small it was in person. Is there a good aftermarket for the fusion sport?

I am pretty sure the ATS is the same length as my second gen cruze sedan.
