Continued the belated quest for a driver license by driving through tract housing for half an hour. I never realized the amount of concentration it took to drive properly before - check the side mirrors, check the rear view mirror, stay in the middle and don't shave the mirrors off the parked cars. I need to get into the habit of hitting that turn signal all the time.

I took a spin later and now I feel a lot more secure with driving and arrogant - I have gasoline and the kinetic energy of 3000 pounds of metal traveling at 30 miles per hour backing up my every move. Fear Me.
