I’m going to be a busy bee this weekend. Part preparing for school, part vehicle maintenance, part helping out a friend.
I need to replace the front brakes on our car, the rotors are warped – a common problem on Chevrolet HHR’s with factory brakes.
I’m also replacing the brakes on a friends mini-van. I have another friend who wants me to do the brakes on his car as well. Do you see a trend here? Yes, I’m known for being a brake guy. It’s one of the few tasks (along with changing your own oil) that you can do to maintain your vehicle that will save you thousands of dollars in your lifetime. Most of the time it just requires a jack (which all automobiles come with) and a few simple hand tools.
After that I’ll have everything I need prepared for this new journey, education at Indiana University. The only question I have remaining is if my mind is ready for this new endeavor. I’m hopeful it will be a seamless transition, but I’m worried the content will be more academic than I’m used to. I have a tendency to worry too much about these things though. Everyone tells me that I’ll do well, but that little voice inside my head always tells me otherwise.
