Staring Bongiwe Mokoena

I had just got a job and was still supporting my younger sister, so I couldn't readily buy a car. This meant I had to rely on public transportation to get to work or go shopping and didn't even have time to go exercise. Most of all, socializing is a major part of my life. For example, on weekends, the car wash is the happening place to mix and mingle, and a flashy car is the ultimate statement. Not having a car made it difficult to get to such gatherings on time and arrive in style.
One Saturday, I got all dressed up and headed for the car wash, but once again I arrived late, no longer looking my best, just as the party was dying down. I decided right then and there that this was the last time I'd have to depend on public transport. I found a Datsun GO shortly thereafter, and I can tell you now, I have a completely new outlook on life. I have my own car and freedom. I can go anywhere, anytime. I can wake up later and still be at work on time, shopping's a breeze and now I even have time to go to the gym. Best of all, my friends and I can just jump in the car and get to the car wash on time.I am having so much fun driving my new car. We're turning heads and look super cute together. Me and my Datsun are on top of the world!
