From fishing to riding a bike;however, there’s one in particular I consider the most memorable that was when I learned how to drive. Driving is a necessity in life because a vehicle transports someone from one place to another and is faster than walking. I’ve always enjoyed car rides especially road trips, but being a passenger for 14 years I lost interest in cars. Therefore, I decided to become the driver. I taught myself since my mother never agreed upon teaching me, for she was afraid to drive with me.
Receiving my driver’s permit made me one step closer to freedom, but it wasn’t over yet. Now that I had my permit, I had to learn how to actually drive a car. I had a little over four months to perfect my driving skills and learn the interior/exterior of a 2003 Toyota Corolla. Through the course of that time, I put in hundreds of dreadful hours in learning how to drive and locating the interior buttons. I practiced turning left and right correctly, as well as how to accelerate and stop smoothly on public roads.
By the end of my first year working two full time jobs I finally had enough money to start looking at cars. I knew cars would be expensive so I was mentally preparing myself to make monthly payments. As my dad and I looked for cars I fell in love with a jeep but it was way over what I wanted to spend so we kept looking. I ended up finding the perfect car a Pontiac G6, it was the perfect car for me! The best part was that I had saved enough money to make the payment in full and not have to worry about car payments.
For a young adult buying a car is a big step into growing up because after a car the next step is buying a house or renting an apartment. I made the right choice by selling my old car because now I do not have to deal with the headaches or fear of my car breaking down on my way to work or school. I stand by my decision knowing that my car will last me many years to come. Also, my mom loves driving my car and occasionally we would switch cars during the week. Her car is a little old and driving it around worries me about breaking down on me, but seeing how happy she driving my car makes it all worth
I used to let people infer that it was because we did not want to pollute and use up valuable resources. More than anything, I was simply impressed with myself that I could arrange a schedule that worked for two working people. We were working and going to school while relying on one car. Of course, occasionally we relied on public transportation. It wasn’t easy; I used to have to arrive at school at 6:30 am on Fridays for a class that started at 4:00 pm.
My first two years of high school I had enrolled in computer science courses, which I thought was going to be a typing class. Although there were some typing tests, the course was primarily to teach students how to create a variety of documents and how to perform proper research. I believed that I knew quite a bit about computers, but this course was going to expand my knowledge to lengths I did not expect. In these courses ... ... middle of paper ... ...ine courses once again proved to work in my favor, last semester I was awarded Dean’s List. With everything I have been through since I was diagnosed with Lupus, I feel as though I have exceeded my expectations for myself.
My father would often ask what did the sign mean to me or just simply watch to see what I would do in regards to the sign. Of course, he would tell me if I did something wrong and would praise me if I did something great! After practicing for a while, I successfully mastered driving a vehicle and have been driving ever since I was a teenager. This is where the driver’s education came into play. Although my dad taught me almost all I know about driving; there were a few things that came across better with driver’s education school such as driving with my instructor on the main roads and other drivers being out there with me.
Sitting in first period on the first day of my junior year, the teacher is giving the class a lecture on the real world outside of high school he explained that you have to actually put forth effort to achieve something that you desire. In the past year of high school, I put forth hardly any effort, still managing to pass, but not happy with the grades and realizing that what this teacher was saying might be true. After the first day of junior year I began to apply myself and one year later, sitting in all college classes preparing to achieve these goals once again made me realize this was the academic turning point in my life. Since first grade, school had always come easy to me, but as high school started to progress, it became harder and
How to Get Driver License Having a driver license is very significant and beneficial nowadays. Getting a driver license is extremely important in our lives, especially for young adults, because acquiring a driver license does not just mean they can drive and go where they want, but also it is a greater responsibility since they are beginning to live their lives like adults not as children. Also, there are a lot of immigrants that come to the USA, and they have to get a driver license to be able to go and provide for their families requirements, but they do not know how to begin. Mary Ying in her article “Five New Words at a Time” states that she had some difficulty to learn English because she is from China, and English was her second language,
Going into my junior year I was again very confident about my education and this was the year I was going to buckle down and do my work. When I arrived in my auto body shop, my teacher noticed my change in attitude and gave me a job which he usually gives to seniors. Every morning when I walked into my auto body class, my auto
