driven

woohoo! a brand-new car for a brand-new me!

weeeeell, actually...a buffed, polished, now dent-free, maintenance-checked, spanking-clean and definitely brand-new looking 2004 civic for an unquestionably, unarguably, undoubtedly brand-new me.

never mind that i actually did not finish the required five-hour driving lessons. i still have a one-hour session that i need to reschedule. but knowing me (yes, the old and new me), i would consciously forget about it and concentrate on this new project of mine. hey! in my 4 days of driving, i've already been through heavy rain and flood, and have successfully navigated the notorious traffic and streets/roads of taft, quiapo, espaƱa and sampaloc. never mind, again, that i still have to perfect my turning skills and that i haven't tried parking yet.

practice shall make perfect. and i shall officially start my practice tomorrow. morning.

and mornings thereafter. and reluctantly, with a chaperone. till i get impatient, like i always do on most things, and just drive my baby whenever, wherever i want....till i make perfect.

drive alone, or maybe with debbie and april, who are oh-so raring, oh-so roaring, and oh-so willing to be my passengers. so sweet of them, really. so driven like me.

i wish them good luck.

Wow, congrats. You're driving na pala. Mukhang mas madaling makakuha ng license diyan. Dito very strict sila.
