I Can Drive

Well, I spent an hour last night reading the most boring book I have ever read.

And I spent an hour today waiting anxiously with a million butterflies in my stomach to take a test, certain I would fail.

Much to my surprise and delight, I passed! I can now drive legally.

It took me forever to take the written test to get my permit, and I am sure some people who know me thought it was really never going to happen. But I did it, and I passed with flying colors.

Now I am going to go take a nap. :)

Honestly, I was freaking out about this test. I was completely terrified I was going to fail. I felt the same way the day I had to take the ACT. (which I actually did fairly well on...) I was just horribly afraid of failing miserably, I don't know why. But it's over now, so I can breathe again.

So, at the DMV's today, they had a sign. "Due to a shortage in examiners, your kidness and patience is appreciated". Um...kidness? They appreciate children? No, they just can't spell. Also, there was a little sign about not texting while driving with two little fingers that had faces painted on the nails and looked like they were getting a mug shot. Anyway, on one side it had 1", 2" and 3" and on the other side, corresponding it had 2.3 cm, 4.9 cm and 7.5 cm....I guess someone can't do math either. I mean, to begin with 1" is 2.54 cm, right?

Anyway, that bugged me the entire hour we sat and waited for our turn. But it did distract me from the freaking out I had been doing, so it served a good purpose I suppose. :)
