A start of a new thing!
So Today, I decided that every Sunday I will post a weekly blog! That way I am at least updating the site once a week if I’m not able to update any other time during the week. This weekly post, I decided to call Sunday Madness! Sunday Madness will be where I talk about different parts of my life, what happened during the week, certain topics that peak my interests, or just some random topic that I feel should be expressed. And now… WW.net’s first Sunday Madness!!!
Today’s topic: My recent experience with driving!
Okay, so most of you probably already know how old I am and for those of you who don’t; I’m 21 years old. So that being said I also don’t have a driver’s license, but recently I earned my driver’s permit and have finally started to drive.
I first received my initial permit when I was 18 years old but because my dad’s car’s turn signal didn’t work I wasn’t really able to drive and then by the time it was fixed his breaks went out and the permit ended up expiring. At the time I didn’t really care whether I learned to drive or not because 1) I didn’t have a car, and 2) when I did drive with my dad it scared the crap outta me.
But then last month I bought a car and re-took the written test at my local DMV and received my permit once again. Since I’ve gotten my permit I’ve only driven the car 3 to 4 times in the past month. Mostly because the weather for the past two weeks in northern California has been insane, but when I did drive I loved it!
The first time I drove on an actual rode with cars was a complete and udder rush! Usually when an older person starts to drive it’s not always possible due to the fact the older you get the more cautious you get and sometimes that caution turns to fear. At first I was scared to get on the road, but once I was there I was fine!
I actually went driving yesterday with my dad; he had me drive to a parking lot a couple miles from our house on the McClellan Air force base(It’s no longer active) and I drove around in circles for a bit before I became bored and decided to go home. On the way home I stopped at a gas station and stuffed 20 dollars worth of gas in the tank(got me half a tank! whooo) and then drove the back way home.On the way home it was a little scary because it was getting dark and there was a lot of people and cars parked on the side of the road, but none the less I did alright.
Since then I haven’t driven; I wanted to go today but my dad wasn’t feeling well and I can’t drive by myself yet. I can’t wait to get my driver’s license so that I don’t have to count on my dad or the local city transportation to get to places.
I know I still have a lot to learn when it comes to driving, but hopefully by the end of the summer I will finally have my license! haha xD Anyways gotta run!
