monday hit us hard

car
...literally.
driving to school. singing along to the radio. all of the sudden, a girl who has the stop ISN'T, in fact, stopping, at a two way stop. slam on the breaks, no dice. she hits us going 30mph. t-boned. huge dent in the side of poor jenny's car. police called. psychology test wasn't able to be taken. sore necks and sore shoulders. thankfully seatbelts were worn. no injuries. just a weird day of being able to say, "I was in a car accident this morning," and the aftershock of the entire thing. 

the best part? even though i slammed against my window at full force, i managed to salvage the coffee in my hand. and then i was able to sip it nervously while we waited for the police and it was that coffee that saved me from an emotional break down in the middle of the street because holy crap, i had a test in 45 minutes.

in light of things, at least we get to ride around in a rental car and it was entirely the other driver's fault, so the bill is on her.

Thank GOD both of you are okay!! That is so nerve wrecking to think about.. my gosh. I've only been in one car accident and it was the most horrific experience ever. We were in my mom's Pathfinder when we got rear-ended by a Honda civic going 60 miles an hour. We were stopped dead still on the bottom of a hill, and she didn't realize that the school traffic was that backed up, so when she looked up it was too late. I had turned around RIGHT before she hit us (i think i was putting my book-bag in the back) and when I looked up I saw her digging in her purse.. then BAM! Her car ran up under the back end of my mom's pathfinder, and I was thrown into the back of the front seat and cracked the console in the car with my right knee. Scariest moment of my life.. and I still have problems with that knee today!

Oh my goodness!!!!!! Thank goodness you're both okay!!!! <3 It's so weird to think that things like this happen to other people everyday when we normally go about our days driving to somewhere, singing along to the radio! I would've been a hot mess after an accident, let alone having an accident happen before an exam! Ah! I hope your professor lets you make it up!

Love you<3

Oh man! I'm so glad you're okay! Car accidents are so scary. Luckily I haven't been the driver in one yet, but I've been a passenger and it's just so jarring. I'm really glad everyone was okay though. Some drivers are just such idiots and absolutely should not be on the road!

I hope you're okay! I was in an accident in 2007 (the driver couldn't "hear" me pass her) and it still gives me the shakes.

Oh wow, car wrecks are seriously the worst, I'm so glad you're not hurt! Driving around in the University neighborhood always freaks me out. But at least you saved the coffee. ;) xx
