Default do you ever have those "why bother with car stuff days"

AutoX event yesterday. It was raining, I sucked horrible not 1 clean run. I got lost.

I don't have the time to be out there like others do, and I don't feel like my skills will get better anytime soon since I do not have the time to practice. Sometimes I feel like just packing it it and calling it a done deal. Why bother with wasting time and money when I could be doing other things I enjoy like actually practing my trumpet or getting back into sports.


rant over.

Maybe not the trumpet part but everything else, yes. This is my first car project, first year autocrossing so it takes a lot of time and effort to do both. I never have time to practice. I have just been offered a job where I'll never get sundays off but if I did the place I have to move to is about three hours away from any autocross. It's difficult .. more money but no tome to spent it on my hobbies.. or little money and a little time for hobbies. Man i'm feeling sorry for myself.

If you are not having fun, find somethign else to do. Especially if you don't have any obligations, like for a sponsor, to be at these things.

I like spending money on it for upgrades, hate spending the time and money for repairs.
