It's forty-three days until my sixteenth birthday, but that's on a Sunday so it's
forty-four days until I can get my driver's license. Of course, what is the point
have having a license if you don't know how to drive? Go to Driver's Ed, you may
say, but no one wants to climb in the car on their first day of driving school and
look like an idiot. That natural solution is to learn how to drive before your
Yesterday, that is exactly what I did.

And it was successful. My dad took me to the fair-sized student parking lot at my
school during the evening, which of course was empty. At first I was really bad and
couldn't even back up without slamming on the brakes. However, I soon realized that
I would have more control over the gas and brakes if I used the ball of my foot as
opposed to the toe, and after that I was set. Once I was able to back up and go
forward, I had to learn how to turn. At first it was hard because you can only spin
the wheel so far before you have to let it go back and straighten out, and I was so
afraid of letting that happen in case I lost control of the car. That resulted in
some more brake slamming. Eventually I got used to it, and before long I was going
in a successful oval weaving between light posts at the ends.
Wanna hear the best part, though? I PARKED. BACKWARDS. I successfully backed
the van into a parking spot the first time I tried.
It was so much fun. If you're going to be turning sixteen sometime this year, I
highly recommend getting behind the wheel before your birthday, just to get used it
and to have an awesome experience. :D
