Should i sell my car?
no, you should get a damn job.
only if you use the money to move to brisbane, australia. we've got 2 spare rooms currently.

uh, i'm thinking no. i've thought about it, too, but ... no. i think we tend to rely on those silly things once we have them.

I don't know, if you had been desperately looking for work and couldn't find anything and were short of cash, I could maybe see like, selling it and buying something cheaper... but right now, yeah you're living off of savings, but it seems to be mostly a choice to be doing so, and you're so prone to wanderlusting, and you haven't really given any indication of being absolutely satisfied in a stay here forever sort of way with providence, so how would you pack up and go explore somewhere else in a year or two?
plus, not having a car severely limits where you can work when you eventually need to get a job.
what is it that's making you think of selling it?
Yes because it's fast $cash$ and it's a gas guzzling, cash eating machine.
No because you won't be able to leave Providence and slowly but surely become very lazy and never go out.

only if its lucrative.
do some math (warning, this is a complex and fun word problem!)-- make a list of trips you might make in a year. (to work, to visit people, to take random "i need to get of here" journeys) in one column, put the price of the trip in a car (gas) and in the other, the price on a bus or train or bike. add them all up, add insurance and maintenance to the car column, and whatever other costs you incur by having a car. also, maybe add something to the not-car column to account for the extra time it can take (if you really wanna waste time and be anal and like math, you could calculate the time difference and assign a dollar amount to your extra travel hours) now, take the $ amount from column car and subtract it from the $ amount in column not-car. if this amount is more than what you think you can sell your car for, then DO NOT SELL!! if it is less than the amount you can sell you car for, then go ahead and sell it if you want. --yeah math. it can solve any problem
no because what happens if I need a random rescue as I often do???????!!!??
