Story time: My tripS to the dmv!

Let me tell you about my trips to the dmv last week.

It was a bright and sunny Friday. My mom was taking me to the dmv so I could take my permit test. Early that morning, I was eating breakfast and she asked me if there was anything I needed to bring to my appointment. I checked online and found the list of things I needed in order to apply for a driver’s license, such as my birth certificate, proof of address, etc. So, I tell my mom and I’m asking her if we can go ahead and put my paperwork together. She gets annoyed with me because she doesn’t feel like getting up to look for my birth certificate. This was at like 9 o’clock in the morning, and my appointment was at 3 in the afternoon, so I guess I was being too “eager” or what eva. She goes on rambling about how she knows what I need to bring, and about how she’s gotten her license before, and basically insinuating that I’m rushing her. So, I left alone.

The clock strikes 2:30, and my mom and I rush out of the house to head to the dmv. As we’re leaving the house I notice that she’s carrying a folder with what I assume are the required documents for my dmv appointment. I don’t question her, or look in the folder myself. All I could think about was my test and how I needed to remember how much would one be fined for littering, or what was one to do if they had approached a traffic signal that was blinking with red lights, or how long was one to signal before merging into the bike lane to make a right turn.

We make it to the dmv soon enough, and I go into the building, stand in line, and wait to be given the application for a CA driver’s license and my number in line. They call my number over the intercom, and I walk over to the window I was referred to, where I was to finish the check-in process before taking my permit test. This is where you have to present your birth certificate and proof of address, along with your application. I take that folder my mom was holding, remove my paperwork from it, and slap it on the counter in confidence. While the man spreads the papers across the counter to look at them, my mom realizes that she put my brother’s birth certificate in the folder instead of mine! For a moment I was so crushed and slightly irritated because I thought we were going to have to reschedule my appointment for another day, and I had been waiting so long for this moment. Not only that, but my mom was trying to play off the fact that she grabbed the wrong birth certificate after talkin’ all that smack in the morning when I wanted to do something responsibly for a change!

Thankfully the man laughed it off and wrote me an impromptu appointment time, allowing me to run home to pick up my birth certificate, and come right back in an hour. My mom and I did as such, however, this little delay wouldn’t have happened if she would’ve let me put my paperwork together in the morning.

Needless to say, I passed my written test with no problem!

my brother was taking me to take my permit test and on the way there he was quizzing me and well....
  • Brother: *points to highway patrol car* What kind of officer is that?
  • Me: Highway Patrol.
  • Brother: What do they have jurisdiction over?
  • Me: The highway.
  • Brother: And…?
  • Me: …Patrol?
  • .
  • .
  • Brother: What exit did we just get off of?
  • Me: The building.
  • .
  • .
  • Brother: When a semi truck pulls next to you, what do you do?
  • Me: Cry.
  • Brother: No crying on the road, the salt blurs your vision.
  • Me: Pray that your vision will be ok whilst crying.
  • .
  • .
  • Brother: What highway are we on?
  • Me: The highest way highway.
  • Brother: *sighs*
  • .
  • .
  • Brother: When you stop at a stop sign what do you do?
  • Me: Stop
  • .
  • .
  • Brother: When you need to go uphill but the road is very icy how do you get uphill without slipping or losing control?
  • Me: Ask Jesus to take the wheel.
  • Brother: *sighs* No.
  • Me: Wait, you ask Jesus if his license is still valid and okay, then ask him to take the wheel.
  • .
  • .
  • Brother: How do you parallel park?
  • Me: You do the thing and then park in a parallel fashion.
So, you guys know how I panic over stupid things sometimes, right?

Like that time where I freaked out over an upcoming doctor’s appointment? Well, today that’s happening again, because I’m finally (FINALLY) taking my DMV permit test (I’m an adult in my mid-twenties, I just put off driving until now because…driving, ugh. XD). 

And I’ve been studying and doing practice permit tests online for weeks now, so I’m prepared and everything…but I just…can‘t seem to calm down about it? Like, I know it’s all common sense stuff, and I know that I know it all, BUT I CAN’T SEEM TO STOP WORRYING ABOUT THIS STUPID TEST. I mean, idiot sixteen year old’s pass this thing. I should have no problems at all. But I still just…?!

Drive Me Crazy

Summary: Y/N has asked Sehun to teach her how to drive cause she just got her permit and her driving test was in 2 weeks. Sehun agrees to teach her, and although she says she knows the basics, she doesn’t really know how to actually drive a car.

“David was greatly distressed…But David found strength in the LORD his God” (1 Samuel 30 :6)
Trouble is no respecter of persons. Maybe you are passing through a time of trouble now? Because we are Christians we must not expect immunity from trouble. Think how much the Lord suffered (Hebrews 13:12), can you think of one true child of God who has not experienced something of the bitterness of trial and testing? We are not to think that God does not love us when trouble comes across our path.
What did David do in his time of trouble? The Bible tells us he “found strength in the Lord his God.
God only permits the testings and trials of life for His glory and always for our good. The secret of discovering God’s sufficiency is found in spending time with Him. Learn to share all of your problems and needs with Him. Say, “Oh, Lord, I believe You are the Father of all mercies and the God of all comfort. Please help me today, especially in this situation.”
Are you hurting? Go to the Father of all mercies and the God of all comfort, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles.

anonymous asked:

hello! I'm taking my permit test later today and I'm incredibly nervous that I won't pass. (I'm almost 20 and still can't drive, so this is important to me) do you know of any spells or anything that could help me pass? or at least lessen my anxiety over it? I hope this makes sense, thank you & have a good day!!

My sister just got her G1 at 27. I am 23, still have only ever driven once in my life. There is no time expiry on learning how to drive. You will be okay. :)

@sigilathenaeum has a sigil for [“I pass my driving test with ease”].

Besides that, the best I can offer are [spells for luck], or perhaps you should browse my [“success” tag] - focus on your desire to pass your test for those.

As for spells for anxiety, you can find a list of such things [here].

This particular [Anti Anxiety Spell Charm] was made around driving, so this might be a really good fit for you.

I hope those help you, and you’ve got this, you’ll do great. :D

An update on Nick

He didn’t pass his drivers permit test and will be trying again on Tuesday please pray for him he was two questions short of passing and seems quite discouraged. Also please join me in praying for a deep conversion of his heart to a reawakening of his faith. He is struggling and is distancing from the Church although he continues to go to church with me.
