Um...apperently I'm a freak. While going through pictures of this for etsy I found out that I belong in the circus with the Asian contortionists. GOSH! Thanks for telling me guys!! I feel like I've had something in my teeth for my entire life and no one told me about it...sick.
I am a super hero. I didn't know this until just recently, but I'm beginning to discover my own destiny. In the beginning I was offended. "Why don't you know my name?" I would ask myself in response to another's forgetfulness. "We spent a glorious evening sipping pink lemonade and discussing the issues of Brother Magleby's Biology class together." Another time I would exclaim: "Don't you remember? We danced under the glittering lights of the Taylor Building disco ball." The most crushing of all was: "Yes, I'm your family home evening sister....Yes, I come...Yes, that was me in the red leisure suit." But then I realized what these strange occurances must mean! I'm a super hero and my identity is to be kept secret...totally secret. I am a mystery. Goodbye McKenzie Scott, hello criminals and villans of world!
I'm just pretty sure that everybody has been walking around saying "HEY! I wonder what McKenzie is up to?" Because of this supernatural ability to see into people's minds, I am here to give an update on a few things that have been going on!
1. I auditioned and got into the Women's Choir here at BYU-I!! Funny Story: I didn't really have to audition, instead I just did the regular vocal tests and she was like: okay, your good. :) happy.
2. I changed my major from Early Childhood Special Education to Photography! I'm a little nervous about it because these days anybody can buy a nice camera and start taking pictures, but I'm picking it as my major...is this smart? I'm not sure yet.
3. When I grow up I'm going to be a dinosaur and work for Target.
I have a sweet auto mechanics class that I'm in right now which isn't stunning to anyone becuase you would so expect that from me, but I LOVE it! We had a class on dealership tricks and I thought it was great stuff to know so I'm passing it on!!
Trade-ins: 1. Let's say you have a car to trade in worth $3000 and you want to buy a car for $7000. Well, those dirty tramps will say the car is worth $10000 so when they give you the $3000 back for your trade in car you are really just paying the original price.**Always find out the price of the car before you tell them if you have a trade in or not. If they ask, tell them "no, i have no trade in" and then once you have a fixed price on the new car, tell them you changed your mind and want to trade in a car.
Intrest/Pricing: 1. Don't tell them how much you want to spend monthly, or tell them a lower number than you really want. If you want to pay $400 a month, they will always say they can't do that, but they can have you pay $430...not that much more but makes a difference! 2. If you do financing with your bank through the dealership the bank will usually have an interest rate of about 5-8% and then the dealership will charge 11% and pocket the extra 3%...rude! 3. Tell them you want to buy the car for about $1000 less than you can really pay and then negotiate from there. * always negotiate, the price isn't unreasonable until they ask you to leave.
Picking the car: 1. Most dealerships will allow you to take the car off the lot to get it checked out by a mechanic. (if they ask for your driver's license as a way to make you come back with the car your taking to the shop, give them something else, they will steal your soc. security # from your license and look up your information so they know how much you can pay) Take it to a mechanic that can use the work so they really do a good job. 2. Chekc out the license plates on the cars in the area, whichever dealership you is the most is usually the best one. 3. If you get to the dealership and the car has already been started, that is a BAD sign. It means it doesn't start up consistantly or correctly. 4. Drive more than one of that kind of car so you know what "normal" feels like and how it should run.
Okay I think that's it for now. Sorry this is soooo long, I just found it pretty good to know!!
