Yes, I'm going to keep using driving puns, yes I'm running out already, and yes I'm going to use them as long as I can. Like I mentioned my driving lesson was held off until the Tuesday (and my next one is today) and as you can see, I came out alive once again. Though there were more close calls this time.
There was more a lot more traffic this time, and everyone decided to park in the street, so I was driving on the wrong side of the road most of the time and shitting myself whenever I see another car. I also had more cars behind and in front of me including a fucking truck and two motorcycles. I have gotten much better at changing gears though, and knowing just where the things in the car are. I don't look at what my hand is going to as much. Not perfected the pedal position yet though.
I also did an impromptu three point turn when he accidentally lead me down a dead end road. Though I didn't do it myself actually. I just controlled the steering while he controlled the pedals. It still counts though, I've done a three point turn and I don't care what people say.
One of the only major mistakes I made (in my mind at least) is when I accelerated down a hill instead of just rolling down and having to do a sudden brake. I also haven't quite perfected braking at all actually. I either brake too sharply or too softly.
Also at the end there wasn't room to pull up so I had to pull into a car park and go behind a bus (that was as scary as it sounds) and park properly within the lines. I almost, really, made it. I was just about to pull in properly when I stalled the car. What matters though is that I was inside the lines and I can drive straight. I could have made it.
Of course it also matters that I didn't crash the car, and that my instructor said that I'm improving. Yay me!
