okay, remember when i was going to get my driver's license in the summer? and then the fall? remember my ode to driver's ed? well guess what...?! i finally took my test and got my license!!! woohoo! that's the short story. if you're interested in the long, drawn out, ridiculous story...scroll down.
monday: mom = goes to the DPS. asks what needs to be done for my driver's test. is told to call back at 8am to schedule it. me = nervous beyond all imagination tossing and turning all night.
tuesday 8:15am: mom = calls the DPS to schedule the test. DPS = "i'm sorry you have to call one day in advance to schedule a testing time." mom = "...umm...we were there yesterday and they said to call today." DPS = "you were misinformed." mom = *grrr*
wednesday 9am: mom = calls DPS to schedule test for THURSDAY. DPS = "okay. but the rules changed today and you have to come in today to do the paperwork." mom = URGH!!!!! "alrighty...thank you very much." so we go up to the DPS and do the paperwork. DPS = "okay now take your hat off so i can take your picture." me = AAAHHH!!!!! "ummm...can i run to the bathroom real quick?" DPS = "sure." okay, please know i had woken up, put my hair in a ponytail, and pulled a hat atop. oh dear. but i'm only going to have it until march because it has to be redone when i turn 17. soooo... umm. also i could just *barely* see the 5th line in the eyesight test. i juuuuust might need an eye test....maybe.
thursd- oh. today: me = after a restless night, wakes up and is so nervous...well...it's tough to describe. as we drive up there i miss the turn...and we get there *just* on time. i get to the DPS...drive up to the beginning of the test (where you have to back up straight, parallel park, etc.). well...it starts off terrible. my parallel parking was a FAIL. umm. i have no idea how i passed. the driving went really well, though. sooo...me and mom got in the car (my driver's license in hand) and i just cried.
i'm so glad this is over. hahaha.
