The Parking (sweet) Spot

I have not struggled with parking for the last 2 weeks. Yep, this is coming from the same girl who drove around for an entire hour without finding on single parking spot. I have found a secret street to park on where I get a parking spot almost every night. Sometimes I don't even have to parallel park!

It is 1 block from my apartment and I don't have to move my car until 9:30 am the next morning. All of the other parking spots in the city have to be moved by 9am on alternating days. No, I can't tell you where it is because I want it to remain a secret. But it is pretty fabulous.

The word fabulous is a bit deceiving. I am parking on a street with a large group of housing projects on one side and a huge ass mosque on the other. Yeah, think about it. There could be gang fights and terrorists in front of my car in the middle of the night. Hmmm yeah not the best area but I have no fear!

It is actually pretty safe don't worry about me. I leave my car when it's dinner time and don't retrieve it until a little after 9 in the morning. It exciting to know that when I get off the highway I am actually almost home and don't have to drive in circles doing the parking dance.

If only I could figure out a way to surpass that darn toll everyday...
