Residents of Texas Beware...

...I just got my license!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although I nearly didn't; I was so nervous that I went way too fast into my first turn, yet I managed to parallel park. But yeah, I got it. YES!

Thought it would be fair to warn everyone. And also I'm obligated to make everyone else feel really old. Kidding of course!

My baby sis just got her licence this year. She still scares the crap out of me.

Congrats!

Thanks! No hard feelings, right Susan? With age comes experience and wisdom, right? *runs away*

raecarrow-I'm pretty sure thats what my mom is thinking right now. I probably gave everyone a nervous breakdown.

Oh you scared me for a minute.. >< although I'm not from Texas. Congrats! I don't want to drive because I'm scared. I rather go green and take transportation.

Congratulations! Haha, I still do not know how to parallel park...I mean, I guess I could manage if I HAD to, but I'm horrific at it. Thankfully for me, that was never part of the CA driving test...at least not at my DMV. lol.

konstargirl - you are so lucky you HAVE public transportation! You really have to have a car in CA...I love driving, but I'd love to take public transportation to save money! Gas gets EXPENSIVE! (And car insurance, and maintenance, and all the rest..)

konstar: If I could I would walk. Our town doesn't even have a stop light-just a blinker. But I live outside the main part of town by the cows and maize/cotton fields For a while I'm probably just going to take myself to school and band practice haha.

ydaisies: Oh yeah, parallel parking was NOT fun. My test was really short. Just down 60 (the highway) and 3 stop signs. I literally went in a square...

Heather: For now! I've actually never been out of state before. But I might make a trip just for you haha. Watch out.

A driver's license is a wonderful thing. Enjoy the freedom and be very, very careful!

My sixteen year old nephew (love of my life) wants a car (and I usually buy him everything he wants) but it scares the crap out of me. I have a little gutless Suzuki I think I'll give him, but he's so big! 6'2, size 15 (yes, you read right, 15!!!) shoe that he doesn't fit very well in it. Besides, he just showed a REALLY, REALLY poor judgment when he accidently shot a neighbor's car window out with a pellet gun. He had bottles lined up in the driveway and was shooting toward the street. I knew it was a bad idea. Thankfully, that's one thing I would never buy him. His dumb*** father is responsible for that one!
