I finally started my nerve-wracking driving lesson…
Stepping on the gas instead of the break kept the car zooming away like crazy! I think that frightened my instructor a bit. I hope he won’t give up teaching me. Sigh. It’s really frustrating because I can’t seem to do the right combination of the following driving know-how while remembering to follow the traffic rules and signs:
- shifting gears
- looking at all the mirrors
- do a left and right shoulder check
- check the back part while reversing
- left and right signal
- looking out for parked cars
Beats me why I never bothered to learn when I was younger. Maybe because I was traumatized? My mother died in a vehicular accident when I was 13 years old. It’s terrifying! Nonetheless, I need to conquer my fear and become a good and responsible driver the soonest. Driving in this side of the world is a necessity not a luxury.
Kudos to those people who’s driving skill is as smooth as eating various food in a buffet. Geez. I’m just at the starting point. I have a looooong way to go… more “bumpy” and “zooming” rides to come.
I must. I will. I can. Aja!
