I have my driving test for my drive-alone license tomorrow! I feel a bit nervous, I'm worried about having to back in from the left side of a parking space! Or aaaah, if I try to parallel park and clip a car, or have to try going between TWO cars (I can do it, but who would want to?!)! And then slowing down/abiding by the speed limit... I do it perfectly well, I just slow down well in advance of a red light to avoid overusing gas (yay for the earth) and would be concerned if they docked points for doing it *too* early. It's not as though I majorly slow down, but I do coast it out a good bit in advance if it's red, then start braking... but icky handbooks imply that braking should be going on, not coasting.
I know that lots of people fail, but unfunness feeling me up right now! And music doesn't work so well, I think overall I can drive just fine, I tend to drive more like a casual driver than anything though... i.e. I'll have to really deliberately swivel my head tomorrow to check my blind spot, which I normally rely on the rearview mirror for, only actually quickly checking if I know there's something behind me for sure.
Hmm, mild irony pops into my mind - I definitely DON'T seem to check my blind spot at night if I know there's nothing behind me, because mentally I think: no lights flashing behind me, no lights visible behind me from a car in my rearview mirror... why risk anything getting knocked down ahead of me by swiveling my head?!
Going to try to get to sleep earlier today, my test is early tomorrow; really hoping that means the roads are mostly deserted, haha. Or, they could be crowded with POed people trying to get to work.
