It’s just four days left and 2016 will be over. If I am to recount how the year has been for me, it will seem like I experienced a million years in one. In the midst of the difficult moments, I am grateful for the great support system I had; my family and friends.
I want to give a shout out to a few possessions that stayed faithful and loyal through my trying moments. My Samsung S4 phone nearly gave up on me. That phone stayed through for me. I have had to change the battery when it fell into water, the screen cracked twice then the sim port went bad but I am still able to browse with it till date but I just gave up on it too. My laptop of twenty months stayed faithful. This laptop hasn’t given me any cause for concern at all unlike other laptops I have had that would have had problems with either the charger or some other technical fault within a year.
I think my loyalty award will be to my corolla car even though I had to sell it in October. That car defined loyalty. I bought it last year when I was in grad school and needed something to just move around town. Considering that I was a newbie driver. I bashed it once and scratched more than once but it stayed faithful. Aside the problems that resulted after I bashed it, it bounced back to shape quickly. All I had to do was oil change once in three months and that was it. Together we drove across states for as long as fourteen-hour drive in two days.
Although I took it for diagnosis every time I had to take those crazy long trips, there was never any cause for alarm. There was a day, the mechanic advised I change its battery but I felt there was no cause for alarm yet. I remember driving for over five hours on the highway, got to my destination, parked, tried reparking and then the car just refused to start. I gave this car a big thumbs u that day. Can a car get faithful than this? Stopping on the highway would have just given me panic attacks but I was able to fix it that day.
As I put my car online for sale and different people called and came to check it out, I wanted to make sure my corolla baby will be in safe hands. As they offered and negotiated, a soldier came and gave me the exact cash I requested for. We had a test drive and he told me it was for his son. I was happy it was going to be in safe hands. Anytime I pass by a white corolla, I smile and wish my corolla baby was still with me.
Which of your accessories are you going to give the loyalty award for the year 2016?
