If we were grabbing a cup of coffee, I’d tell you that I sat behind the driver’s wheel for the first time today (Milestone unlocked).
Driving a car has been on my bucket list for over five years now. Due to various events and reasons, I kept pushing the date. Finally I got my learner’s permit earlier this month but wasn’t quite ready to start driving. However, with my Dad’s persistent insistence, I signed up at my local driving center for lessons and patiently waited for their first available slot: Today.
Off I went for my first driving class, with butterflies just swimming about in my stomach. You know, the kind where you’re not sure if you’re excited, terrified or a scrambled version of both.
As I sat in that driver’s seat, all I could think was: I couldn’t handle bumper cars back in school and now they’re giving me control of a real one, just for me?!
Thankfully, everything went off well (despite the butterflies).
One down, nineteen more to go.
