I PASSED MY DRIVING TEST ON TUESDAY!!!!!!!! IT'S FINALLY OVER!!!!!!!!!!
It's surreal. I don't feel different at all. All I have is a piece of paper and a little card to prove it..... I think I'm in shock. I'm keeping my cool about the whole thing, which is very odd for me. It's like I'm being an adult about the whole thing. Yick :P Usually I'd be ecstatic about it, jumping up and down, screaming, telling everyone, etc. SO WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? I'm turning into a boring adult!*squeeks with fear*
I think the test went well. My driver instructor was nice enough, but very serious. She didn't crack a smile at all, but I guess if I had her job I wouldn't either :D That job would suck.
We got started right away, which I liked because then I didn't have time to freak. I hate waiting for things like that :P The first things she had me do was get in the car, buckle up, start the engine, test out my turn signals, brake, and sound the horn. This may sound dumb, but I had never used the horn before in Robert's car and for some reason we passed over that part when he was teaching me all the controls the day before :P So, I hesitated and frantically looked around for the horn. I've used one before (when I was little), but that was in a different car. It didn't take me long to find it and she didn't mark me for any hesitation on the report *phew*
After that we took off for the driving part. We basically just drove around the block :P I didn't have to change lanes, go on a one way, or anything really complicated. Just basic turns and stops. I think it lasted maybe 10 minutes? I didn't time it, but it didn't seem very long.
Then we headed to the maneuverability test area, and she instructed me to go the right of the point cone and guess what? I DIDN'T HIT ANY FREAKIN CONES!!!!! Robert and I practiced and practiced and practiced some more until I finally was able to do it 4 times in a row both ways the night before the test!!!!! Btw, I'm sorry I left you guys hanging with my last driving-related post! The past few days I was just trying to stay focused and not think about the test too much.
After maneuverability, she had me park the car. (I did a really crappy parking job, guys. I thought I was done for.) Then she immediately started in on all the things I did wrong. My mind was going "ohcrapohcrapohcrap" I figured I had failed. Then I heard her saying that I had passed and it was rather unbelievable. I totally expected to have to take it twice.
I actually passed.
My end results were 85 points on driving and 95 on maneuverability :) UNBELIEVABLE.
So I did a little photo shoot when I got home from work.
|I DID IT!|
|I wore one of my favorite outfits :)|
|I'M FREE!!!!!!!! Sorry this is blurry :P|
*big sigh of relief* It really is over. Now I can enjoy my life :D
To celebrate, I bought myself a thredUP dress that I had been eying for a few weeks now. I'll show it to you when it arrives :)
Mom also surprised me with earrings and a Sacred Heart of Jesus driving pin to put in the car (It actually belonged to my Maw-maw that passed away in 2012, so it's all the more special now.)
GAH I'm so happy :)
Thanks for all the prayers, support, and encouragement you guys have given me! I know all of it helped me get through it.
And to my hubby: Thanks for being there, giving me your shoulder during my not so fine moments (there were a lot of them :P), and for making me get back in the car and drive. I know I couldn't have done any of it without you :)
Have a goodnight, guys!
