Honestly, I thought the anxiety I had felt the night before my driving test, was going to kill me. I did not sleep well at all. I had a dream that I missed my appointment, because in my dream my dad and mom took me to a car dealership. I was drowning in my panic!
|I felt like Sonic the hedgehog: I'm not gonna make it!|
Thank goodness we actually showed up on time! However, I sat there waiting for over an hour before I actually took the test. I was extremely relieve when the driving instructor had me turn into a neighborhood to take my test, and not on the main road!
*I'm sure it's because there is a lot less traffic you have to maneuver through, and if you make a mistake, you're not likely to kill the driving instructor!*
It's important to breath (Passing out wont help you! lol)! Just relax, and just follow the person's instructions. It's not as terrible as your mind makes it out to be, and you won't believe anyone else who tries to tell you that. It's something you must figure out on your own. It was probably one of the more simpler driving tasks I have ever done!
Just like that, it was over. I couldn't believe that one of the biggest milestones in my life so far, that I have been dreading, was over in what felt like 10 minutes. This is what I was worrying myself over? The worst part was the waiting.
|You mean... I got my license?|
Learning that I had passed my test and was getting my driver's license was awesome! I get to drive by myself legally now? Wow... The excitement lasted with me for the rest of the day. I was so happy, could hardly eat my lunch, did not have a snack, and ate as much dinner as I could possibly stuff into my un-hungry stomach. Excitement, it does strange things to you. We celebrated my accomplishment with shakes from Sonic! (Of course, I had the peanut butter!) I could only drink a fourth of it, if even that much!
You need to give yourself a reward for accomplishing such a thing. I don't mean letting your parents treat you to ice cream, I mean treat yourself to something special! Whether it be seeing a movie you've been wanting to see, or buying a Black Butler wall scroll you have been dying for, you should give yourself a little something. Speaking of which, where is my wall scroll? It was supposed to be here already! :D
