Day 1: Driving Lesson with Smart Driving School

September 30, 2013

I came giddy and a little nervous to St. Francis Square last Monday for my first day of driving lesson. I didn't know what to expect kasi. My mind was filled with questions like: "What would my instructor look like?", "Will I whack someone else's ass while he/she cross the street or hit a car along the way?", "Can I do it? Really really do it without my husband with me?"

The ever beautiful Shane, the receptionist, introduced me to my instructor that day, Aris. I was happy to see that the car assigned to me that day is the same car that we owned. Confidence improved my mood and nervousness left my system right away. Until it was my turn to drive, it came back even stronger. Haha! Ang yabang ko pa naman to tell the instructor that I know the basics of driving when I can't even make the car move an inch. Nakaka-pressure naman kasi ang lolo mo! Although he didn't shout at me, I can feel his disappointment everytime the engine dies on me. I kept on saying sorry and sorry. Hehe. The instructor was good. The student, that was me, was bad in following instructions. Yun lang yun. =)

We drove around Ortigas area, went out to C5 and Shaw Boulevard. I was relax half the time and fidgety the other half. Over all, I think I did good naman. Considering that it's my first time to drive here in the metro. Pagbigyan nyo na ako. *Wink

I didn't hit someone or bump a car. I learned what I should learned that day. Although he left a comment on my assessment form that says I need improvement to my footwork, I still deserve a pat on the back for a job well done.
