Watch out!

There's a new driver on the road.

Well, not really.
I've just been practicing in my driver's training class. I don't even know where to begin with that one.

Yesterday was my first time driving. I got to be with my friend of 7+ years (I know, I'm too young to be able to say that). It was rough. We just drove around a small residential area in our town, which really wan't the worst part. That was getting the car straight with the curb, when backing up. I can back up just fine - it's the straightening it out. I was so frustrated, I wanted to cry! That sounds pathetic, but it's true. I could tell that my instructor was getting a little frustrated with me as well. That's what made it even worse. But, we got past that.
Today's drive was much, much better I must say. I did tons of lane changes and turns, and it's such a relief to have things come easier. Practice makes perfect; they weren't joking.

And about DECA?
Well... we didn't do as great as I'd expected. My partner & I didn't get any metals, and we're not going to State. Turns out that our teacher put us in a category that he normally saves for Marketing 2 students. We're first year. He claims he wanted to 'challenge us'. Well, we didn't understand exactly what we were supposed to do so that's why we didn't place. So sad! Eh, oh well. I didn't really want to go in the first place anyway. :)

Other than that, life's been so busy. I haven't had time for anything now, between drivers training, homework, and sleep.
Although, I'm pretty happy that I just got my new boots in the mail from Love Culture. :)

I love them so far. Has anyone else ever ordered something from there? How's the quality? It's my first time.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. I've never heard of that site, but I'm definitely going to check it out :)
    Don't worry, crying at the wheel is totally normal :) especially for us girls :P I get the heeby jeebies when I think about the time I was learning how to drive. I hated every minute of it, and now it's like I always knew how to drive. So learning how to drive is, fortnately, 100% forgettable :) so don't you even fret love. Have you ever met someone that just DIDN'T get the hang of driving? :) exactly. You'll get there!

    LOVE the boots :) Is it weird that when I saw them I thought "Oh they're so her!" :P

  2. Haha, thanks Jess! That was a great point, about how no one doesn't NOT get the hang of driving. That makes me more optimistic about it all. :)

    Okay, that is so funny! Haha, not THAT weird. ;) You can learn a lot about someone through their blog!

  3. Don't stress about your driving skills - they will come with practice :) Believe me, I know - when I was in Driver's Ed, my instructor had me go through the Burger King drive thru and I was so terrible at it that the guy working the window had to help me get straightened out before I plowed through the building!

  4. Thanks for the encouragement, Emily! And... ha, that story is so funny! That DOES make me feel a bit better. ;)
