Hitting the Road!!!
So yesterday, I went out driving. I drove to my auntie's house from the Teepee creek corner. I did pretty good, for my first time, considering it was on a highway. I was speeding, a little bit. (Not on purpose!) I almost knocked off a few guard rails. Almost went into the ditch. Didn't stop for someone crossing the street. (In my defense, she was in the ditch when I looked!) But over all, I think I did pretty good. It is a lot harder then it looks. Plus I'd never practised before and then I got put out on the highway, with other vehicles, and hills, and people crossing the road, and deer. Let's just say I think I'll be practising in the field before I ever try the highway again. But I didn't get stopped by the police (yay!!!) or hit anything or drive into the ditch. We arrived all in one piece. My dad, who was sitting in the passenger seat, did not die of a heart attack. It wasn't a bad first time. But highway, with no experience, not something I'd do again. Over all, I had a good time. Driving is fun (and hard and scary and makes you think and made my blood sugar drop cause I was thinking so much) and I think I'll enjoy it once I get the hang of it. The first time didn't go bad, which I was thankful for. I've had my learners since February and I guess I always knew I would have to drive some day. And starting on the highway, I guess I got thrust into everything all at once. Fun, Scary, Tiring. All I can say is watch out drivers (and pedestrians and wild life) of the Peace Region. Alisha is hitting the road!!!
