Driving me nuts.

In just over a week I shall be going for my drivers license. Again. This will be the second time I will be trying but I am so nervous and for good reason. The first time didn't end so well...It involved a lot of hyperventilating, crying, snot, shaking and just a general feeling of thinking that I was having a heart attack at the age of eighteen. It took me six months just to rebook my test. (And for all my overseas readers, in South Africa we can only get our drivers license when we are eighteen and before you start feeling sorry for us, the upside is we are also allowed to legally drink when our big eighteenth comes around so suck it.)

I would like to think this is what I looked like while taking the test. Not happy just nervous.
In Reality...

Add in the sniffing, snorting, hiccuping and general wailing sounds.
Now, I am not a bad driver, I'm not exactly formula one material but I'm a calm, collected driver just not when I am taking the test, as you can see by the picture above.                                                                                                                  
I've been having lessons with a driving instructor, he is quite cool, laughs at my antics and is eerily calm when I get distracted while driving.

Driving Instructor: Chelsey, you need to go slower.
Me: Nuh uh
DI: Chelsey, you have to go slower otherwise they will fail you.
Me: Will they fail me if I do this?
*Sticks head out the window and does a bad imitation of a dog                               
DI: Yes
Me: And this?
*Drives on the wrong side of the road    
DI: Definitely
Me: And this...
Me: Oh! A squirrel

Squirrels are adorable.

Einstein Squirrel 

I want to live on a farm and only have cool animals like squirrels, lions, tigers, goats, rabbits, wolves, unicorns (They totally exist) and chinchilla's. Besides having an awesome name, they look like a cross between a squirrel, mouse and a rabbit...How freaking weird is that? ugly/cute suckers

Anyhoo wish me luck guys, I am super nervous for my drivers

  1. Good luck on your exam!
    Also, have you ever youtubed chinchillas? Justin and I sat here for like 30 minutes one night watching videos of chincillas. I wanted one SO BAD until I read that they chew like nonstop. I don't need another destructive animal. They're super cute though. So are hedgehogs.
