Going My Way?: A Woman’s Journey to Vehicular Freedom

12 Sep

Modern woman has always been faced with many pressing questions such as “How do I get all of my things from here to over there?” and “How will I get there on time.” Living, working and playing in the fast pace city of New York can turn anyone into a professional multi-task-er. With school, work and a growing toddler I for one find myself waking at ungodly hours in order to pack my family up and ride the iron horse to work. This routine has always been flawed and often I find my self arriving everywhere late due to a sick passenger or the just plain awful-ness of the MTA.

So I’ve decided to become a driver!

 Yes at 24 I’ve finally decided to get out of the passenger seat, and put my hitch hikers thumb away.

So I took the written test (which is most likely the easiest test you’ll ever take) and I passed!!


Me & My brand new Learner's Permit! (aren't we hot!!)

Don't I look grown up and serious

Although I’m motivated this will be no easy feat, I come from a large family of non-drivers

Except for my Grand Mama who most likely drove something like this (below)


So follow my journey as I buckle up and pursue vehicular FREEDOM

Yep, I'm nervous

You’ll see me laugh, cry and come into many close calls with medians, but don’t worry I have insurance (you won’t catch me riding dirty)

With my trusty side-kick/driver extraordinaire/fiancé to show me the ropes I’ll finally know what it feels like to be in the drivers seat, with the wind blowing in my curly fro.


Open road, Here I come!
