Okay so my one true goal for this year was to get over my fear of driving and well...just get on with it. It took me all of last year to psych myself up to even the idea and thought of the whole driving thing. I'm not sure why I have such an irrational fear, I've never been in any crazy accidents or anything. Unless you count the time my mum didn't put my seatbelt on when I was little and a cat ran out in front of the car and my chin hit the dashboard and left a big dent. She's says im too young to remember but I remember it like it was yesterday, I'm obviously traumatised. In her defense we were only driving like 5 houses down the road.
I started out this year by doing some driving while we were back in New Zealand. I come from a small city/town the biggest road only has 2 lanes. All the streets are wide and I know the roads like the back of my hand. I got my confidence up enough to drive here in Melbourne. Today I drove to the supermarket then took a detour on the way home just to practice. I ended up on one of the biggest roads in Melbourne. The was lane changing and everything going on and like 5 lanes on each side of the road. Well we made it home safe and sound and no one even honked their horn at me!
Safe to say that was my happy moment of the day. I think I'm ready to take on the world now. My cousin and I are both learning to drive when we get a licenses to drive alone we are going out to dinner and driving ourselves...two cars because we are cool like that!
