Confessions of a Teenage Driver

It all started like this.... I wanted to drive.

Driving was something that sounded "thrilling" and "responsible" if you will. :) I waited to get my permit for 15 years. My parents wouldn't let me get it any sooner for various reasons, namely because it was against the law, but I still wanted it.

But now that I have it, I see that driving isn't everything that it's cracked up to be. You have to pay attention to so many things! Mirrors, speed, other cars, signs, gas and brake, and good radio stations!
I haven't driven a lot, and I am sure that it will become easier and more natural as I do it more, but since I am not there yet, I would be just as content to ride shotgun.

Although, I do look forward to being able to drive myself to all of my activities. Mom says that she is looking forward to having me run the boys to their things and to pick up groceries. I guess that will be nice. But for now... :)

Oh, and I have driven over 60 mph which was kind of "thrilling".

Yours Truly,


  1. Wait, do I get this right? You actually DON"T totally LOVE driving?!?!?! Even after actually driving? Hmmm.... I'll have to talk to you about that next time I see you.;)


  2. I remember when I was absolutely terrified of driving - I never wanted to practice, for fear of DEATH! You're in control of this giant hunk of metal! Fortunately, I got over this :P, and now enjoy driving in speeds way exceeding 60mph. Just wait! The best is yet to come :).
