driving

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:

  • steering
  • maneuver
  • 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
  • etc

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!

    You are just CURIOUS behind the wheels but you will learn eventually. I remember my instructor told me while I’m at home get a plate,try to visualize and think like you are driving a car. oh yes, I did it and I look like kuku using the plate and it helps me when I applied in the car.. 🙂

  2. reminds me of the case of Hal Jordan in The Green Lantern where he developed a fear after seeing his father get caught up in an explosion while he was trying to get off his crashed aircraft
