permit-test

I passed my permit test! And since I’m 18, I don’t have to wait six months to take the road test, so I’m probably gonna take it in January so I can stop being a useless human being and relying on other people for rides!

HELp ME! I HAVE DRIVERS ED IN A MONTH AND I ONLY HAVE A YEAR OF HIGHSCHOOL LEFT AND I DONT HAVE A COLLEGE PLANNED OUT OR ANY BACKUPS AND MY MUM EXPECTS ME TO GET STRAIGHT A'S ON MY REPORT CARD AND IM UNDER SO MUCH STRESS AND IM ON NEW MEDS AND ITS MAKING ME ALL HYPER AND SHIT AND DRIVERS ED IS IN A MONTH AND ALL I'VE DONE IS SKIM THE FIRST CHAPTER OF THE HANDBOOK OH GOD

It’s all right, it’s all right, friend! I went through the exact same thing last year when I was a high school senior!! (Besides the drivers ed thing, since I didn’t have to take driver’s ed when I turned 16. I just took the permit test, and eventually got enough hours to take my driver’s test during my senior year wh o op s lm aoo. THOUGH IF YOU’RE STRESSED ABOUT GETTING YOUR LICENSE LATE DONT WORRY FRIEND BECAUSE I GOT MINE MY SENIOR YEAR TOO…) As for the handbook, it actually only took me around a day to read the whole thing (though I don’t know how different it is in other states. o:) But it really isn’t a whole lot of new information, since a lot of it is common sense. If you have a decent amount of common sense and have paid attention to street signs and so forth before taking driver’s ed, you’re already ahead of the game! And I have like…hardly any common sense…so if I could get my license and stuff - no need to worry, friend! ;u; 

As for college choices, first of all you need to have an idea of what career field you wanna go into! If you do, and know what majors you’re interested in, start searching for colleges in your state that offer those majors you have an interest in (and maybe even include colleges from other states, if you wanna. But it’s more expensive for out-of-state colleges ><). Though make a list of all the colleges you find, and do some research! Find out which ones have good programs, and be sure to narrow down the ones that are cheaper as well! Try to save as much money as you can, because college debt is never fun…

Just…don’t think you need to get into a fancy private college to get the proper education you need. Because if I were completely honest, you’ll get the same curriculum anywhere you go. You really think that a biology course at Yale or Stanford is gonna be so much more fancier than if I were to go to a public college in my state? No, no you’re not. So please, go with the cheaper options, especially if you don’t have a lot of money to throw out, y’know? Unless you get scholarships. Try to at least apply for some scholarships if you can. You may not get them, but at least you tried and applied! 

And dude…I wish your mom was more understanding. School is hard these days, and you should really let her know that this is a very stressful time in your life. You’re trying your hardest to do the best you can! That’s all that should matter to her! I technically never got straight A’s in high school (if you don’t count weighted/honors classes, because I got B+’s, which were considered to be in the ‘A’ range on the GPA scale but…that’s not the same at every high school), and still managed to get into a pretty good college. Just please…let her know that you’re trying your best. Let her know that the pressure is to much, because your mental health should be more important than stressing yourself out over your grades. TRUST ME. I WENT THROUGH THE SAME. THING. I stressed myself out so much, to point where I would have complete mental breakdowns (and pretty often, too…), and just…senior year was really hard and stressful for me. Please take it easy and do your best! Just please…let her know how you feel. Hopefully she’ll understand (AND SHE SHOULD. IF NOT THEN >:C)

I got the power

Passed my permit test!

Yes, they have now allowed a crazy person to be behind the wheel.

Drove for the first time today too and I must say…I am a pretty damn good driver. There were little kids in my neighborhood and I passed by them without injuring a single child. So proud…so…proud

So siked…I want to drive everywhere now. I might get another driving lesson today. Yeeeesss.

Okay, that’s all I had to brag about (:

I LOVE YOU! (advice: don’t be out on the same road as me…just in case)
