With a 6 foot black steel cube, covered in lemon juice and rock salt, lubricated with gravel and barbed wire.
I started Driver's Ed today. And it was 2 hours long. And I have 14 MORE OF THESE.
And it SUCKED COCK-N-BALLS. So hard.
And then I have 6 more 2 hour drives.
And then I have to log a total of 60 hours with my parents or another adult :P
I mean, I'm glad they don't want you to die, but this seems just a weensy bit copious.
So yeah, this sucks. But I have to do it, if I want a license before I'm 18, which as far as I'm concerned will be heaven on Earth.
Because, now my brother takes me to school. Which is nice.
But, he's graduating this year.
So, next year, I'll have to take the bus for most of the year. Which means waiting out in the frickin cold for who knows how long in the dark, waiting to go to a place I hate, where then I have to sit for 20 minutes before it even starts.
And, my birthday is sadly March 25, which puts it so I have to do this the ENTIRE WINTER. 4 days after spring starts, I get to drive then! But by then the damage is already done, I'll be damaged and resentful and I'll never be able to be my happy self again :P
And I'll be able to drive myself to swim meets, which will be cool.
I'll be able to be a real loner :)
But I was so thrilled to learn that in my drivers ed class there is a really hot, really cool guy from my soccer team, which is not only good eye candy, anything to distract me from listening to being talked at for 2 hours, but I'm also glad the class isn't filled with people I hate.
Which is what I was afraid of.
You know, this really wouldn't be so bad, if I didn't have swimming. If I did nothing after school, I'd be bored anyway.
But now I have to completely skip 2-3 days of swimming a week, so I can go listen to a guy talk about driving for 2 hours.
I CAN'T IMAGINE ANYTHING WORSE.
The only thing that doesn't make me go insane with the thought of all the training I'm missing is that this part of the 11-and-a-half month swim season is where training starts to mellow and taper off.
If I was missing late Fall- Winter, I'd literally have to rape someone, or murder someone, or just do both in one foul swoop.
It'd be unavoidable. There's no alternative.
But, anyway, how are you doing?
