Dear Carly,

I know, it may seem like there is only a "Chelsey" in this, but Carly is a senior in high school and thus her school work eats her. Please forgive.

Yes, that subject up there is a reference to Sixteen Candles. It is also what I am planning on begging my parents for in the near future. They will receive a detailed, several page reaoning, but for now let me just say that:

My campus is VERY small. But I live on Greek Row, at the very end. Whenever I want to do something after classes, I stand a very small chance of getting a ride without making myself pathetic and whipping out the phone which invariably takes longer than it would for me to just hoof it. Said hoofing it takes me longer than anyone else, with my bag (which is heavy) it is worse.

My back hurts when I do it, from my books, my legs hurt and it cannot be good for my bad knees. A car would eliminate this and possibly back problems later in life. I would be able to keep books in there, and thus not even carry them to lunch etc. I could even take them back to my room in between classes (=more sleep at night)! I could do work between classes for the classes the next day without having to carry all of that with me!

Even if they don't want me driving off of campus, it is much easier to say: "Want to go to Starbucks with me? We can take my car," than, "Um.... could you please maybe drive me to (my dorm/class/lunch)". Better social interaction!

My body would be less run down, my legs less swollen and I would be less tired. Less dependency. Win-win!
