08.16.11 - Got a goal: Driver's License.
I’ve taken an interesting initiative; one that I thought it’d be next to impossible for me to take.
I’m finally practicing/learning to drive.
To most guys, it’s no big deal.
For me - it’s probably one of the biggest challenges I’ll face.
Why’s that? You may ask.
Well you see, I’m an interesting case.
I have absolutely no interest at all in anything automotive.
Which is kinda ironic, since as I kid, I love playing with toy cars and would collect like hundreds.
Mitsubishi, Ferrari, w/e - they’re all the same to me. Honestly I see no beauty in the things my friends point out while we hang out in the middle of the road “OMGG FERRARI GT something something!”. Or when they talk of their dream cars - what kind of brand model #, how it’s better than that brand model #…
I’m just… not into that kind of stuff yenno? I’d listen but… I’ll probably get really bored. The only car I ever thought was cool was Bumblebee’s car - Camaro or something… just cuz it looks cool and is yellow xD.
In a way, I’m actually a bit scared of driving.
Little do people actually understand how dangerous car accidents are.
They are indeed VERY dangerous and is the cause of death of many.
even if your driving is 99 percent perfect. That 1 percent can lead to a death =/.
Scary to think right? But I guess I have my parents to drill that fact into me.
The only reason… I was able to get my Learners was… a certain someone motivated me. Otherwise I probably still wouldn’t of gotten it.
It was honestly hell going through the book - I totally didn’t want to do it.
Signs, rules all that crap was all new to me and stuff I had no interest in.
I was actually pretty happy when I got it… I mean back then I had pressure from her…
… It’s a little embarrassing isn’t it? I mean, girls can be like this - their bf’s can drive them around but… for a guy? aha - that’s our society for you.
How am you going to pick up your girlfriend? Friends would always tease me.
Jose started getting lessons so I was just like “*sigh*, it’s been a year. If I don’t take my road test soon, my Learner’s will expire and I’ll have to take the knowledge test again…” (it was like hell going through the book =/).
Might as well suck it up. Going to be a man xD.
I got a good instructor from a friend’s recommendation and voila. I’m 3 lessons in now… and I guess it’s not that bad. I’ve always had the ability to do anything I put my mind to… and even better when I have a 1 to 1 instructor.
I must say though it’s expensive =/ $32/hour. 2 hours per lesson.
My goals to get my license by October. Wish me luck? =)
