I Love Driving!

I'm quite proud of myself that I can finally drive now. Well it's not something amazing or spectacular for other people but for me it is. I feel like I've passed through a rite of passage and have now finally become more mature. I used to think that I was more mature than my peers but now that I've moved here in Canada I realized that I am still a kid as compared to them. Canadians are very mature people, although they do love to party and enjoy life as western movies would suggest, they do know how to set their priorities and they are just cool people. They are so easy to get along with.

Anyway I'm going off topic as I usually do so I'm going back to driving. I just recently received my Driver's License (a Class 5 GDL!!!) and the day after I got it I started driving our SUV. At first I was having a hard time driving our mammoth of a car. I was driving a Toyota Matrix when I was learning to drive so when I switched to our massive Nissan Pathfinder (well it's not that big, but it is big if compared with the Matrix) it took me a while to get used to it. I just registered as a secondary driver under my dad's insurance policy so that means I can go driving around the city alone. Woohoo! But I still prefer to stay at home during my day offs because I don't want to spend any money.

I just realized that I was a speed junky. I find 60 km/hr was too slow and I love going above 100 km/hr. The thrill of going very fast is amazing! My parents would say that I was a horrible driver because I make sharp turns and I would always send our groceries flying. But they do understand that I'm still new to this driving stuff and I do follow the traffic rules (except for that time I almost ran a red light).

So if you're in Edmonton and you see a grey Nissan Pathfinder, it's best to steer clear away from me. Just kidding. I'm not that bad at driving.
