Counting Down To Independence

In 10 days 4 hours 52 minutes and 15 seconds, I will officially have my license. No more L (loser) plates for me. No more having to only drive with a full license person in the car. I’m going to be able to drive ALONE and take myself out. I’ll be able to go down the street without Brendan and do my own shopping instead of waiting for him!

To say I’m excited would be an understatement. I didn’t realize how much I needed or wanted it. My test is on the 13th so I’m taking the day off. I also got the 14th off as well. I figured I’d make a long weekend out of it.

What’s the first thing I’m going to do by myself?

Drive to my sister’s house or stay the night at Courtney’s?

Take myself out for lunch?

Drive to McDonalds?

I have no idea!

I’m getting my own car as well. I’ve been doing a lot of research into that. I was going to buy a car during the holidays but decided it was best if I waited until I have my license so I can test drive it. Plus, I didn’t want someone else driving my car home. I wanted to be the first one to do that. So, I should be getting it within the month. I’ve got to clean out the garage first and get rid of a lot of the shit in there to fit a car in though (there’s a lot of crap in there).

I’m getting ready though. I even bought myself a breathalyzer to have in my bag (you can’t have one sip of alcohol in your system for 3 years). Brendan asked me what I needed it for and I said “to be safe!”. What if I stayed at my sisters the night before and drank? How do I know if still have alcohol in me? Or if I want to go down the street but drank the night before? I think this is something I need to make sure of.

This is going to be the first major win of the year!

    Congratulations. Here you are getting your first driver’s license. I got my first motorcycle license at 1`3 and my driver’s license at 15. I’ve had 33 cars in 48 years:
