|the saga of the car I cannot make go away.

Ok, so my car is titled in Arizona. The registration expired before I moved up and I didn't want to pay Arizona another $120 for a year of registration so I just grabbed a trip permit. After I got up here as I tried to get my car registered, I needed to pass emissions which I did, but to register I needed a copy of my title. Eh no big deal I don't care as I'm not driving, I'll worry about it once I have a job and need it.|
Fast forward to last year about this time. I go back to az about this time and I try to get my title so I can register my car. Turns out when I originally paid off my car the loan company never filed the lien release. I call the loan company and they say it's so long that they don't even have the paperwork to file the release, instead they will send me notification that they do not have a lien on the car. I guess I have to accept that.
Fast forward a year, the HOA is demanding I move my car, never received the paperwork from the lien release, can't get the title, registration out of date and Washington requires a title or current registration to sell the car, can't give the car away to charity, can't dump it at a scrap yard and I'm told move it, or it will get towed and I'll be charged $60 a day for a month before they bother getting the title themselves and selling it for me. As I think the car will only get about $500 in auction, this means after all is said and done, they will bill me 1,800 or so minus whatever the car gets at auction. So I called a tow truck and moved it to the "permanent spot" that comes with the apartment. So yeah, whoever thought it would be this difficult to just get rid of a car? I would love it if a semi honest tow company would "tow" my car, agree to charge me $1 in storage fees and file a lien to get legal ownership so they can sell it for whatever profit they make.
I wish I could say that my mental health was stable enough to handle this but it caused me to spiral again and accomplish nothing for quite a few days. In other news managed to get some work done on my last portfolio piece before I have to start submitting everywhere, and it shouldn't take too much longer.
