$15/day in tips. Do you work 7 days a week? Is that a solid $15 every single day? Is there the possibility that could change?
Did your friend have the same car? Same parents? Same expenses?
You live in Alaska. So your mileage is even worse than what I had done the math on.
Are you always driving on snow? No pavement at all?
Can you afford oil changes?
Can you afford air filters?
Can you afford anything a blown turbo?
Can you afford major maintenance ($500-$1000) every so often?
Seriously, stop trying to live the dream and live the reality.
