Ahhh Scared/Excited.

So, I don't have my drivers liscense.  I'm 22 years old, and have a child, but don't have my liscense.  I've always been scared of drving around other cars.  Well, I did it.  I drove to a Quick Trip that wasnt right next to my house to get milk.  I drove, and there were other moving vehicals around me.  But I drove.  I had some rocky moments.  But no accidents.  And I made it home alive.  And my fear isnt completly marked off, but...I did it.  I overcame my fear.  Not extremly comfortable yet, but i'm working on it.

Go me?

Just thought I would rave about the scariest expericance I had.  Seriously, driving 40 mph was scarier than a ride I went on where I was flung up into the air and spinning halfway upside down.  That was a scary ride, and yet, controlling a vehical was scarier.

I know, I'm a big baby.


  1. No. I'm 23 and am only now on the verge of getting my license. Fear of driving, and wanting to be 'perfect' has held me back.

  2. Nope, you aren't a big baby. I had a hard time learning to drive myself. I was 18 before I felt comfortable driving anywhere alone. It's a scary thing! (Still scares me sometimes...)

  3. glad to hear that you did that. next step: get a license so you can do it legally! lol

    i used to be really scared of highway driving. was not comfortable with the high speed, the numerous lanes and merging. i mean, i was super scared of highways. then i went to college 4 hours away from my hometown and had to just do it! i remember i left really early in hopes that there wouldn't be much traffic. now i drive on the highway every day to work. driving gets less scary the more you do it.

    kudos to you!
