Some Things You Have To Do By Yourself

Lately I've had moments where I just wanted to be alone. I didn't want to see my parents. I didn't want to deal with my brothers. I didn't want to be face to face with friends. Silence just seemed like bliss. So, I took opportunities to get out of the house and be by myself. Remember months ago when I said I was just learning how to drive? Well, this involves a driving experience.

A couple days ago I went to the driving office and made my appointment to take my test. I'm so not ashamed about this, because there were people as old as in their 40's registering to take it also. After leaving the driving office I didn't want to go back home. Instead I need an adventure and the highway seemed like the perfect place to have one.

So, I hopped on the highway. It was my first highway driving experience. One of my friends wanted to experience it with me, but I wasn't down for that. I had to do it by myself. I didn't want direction from anyone.  It was fun. I drove really fast. Well, I got up to 65, which is the fastest I've ever driven. (Still a beginner). However, that wasn't the real adventure.

At some point I hopped off the highway to turn around. Then I got lost. After being lost for about an hour I finally called someone and asked for directions. That someone had to be a male. Isn't it odd that it's always a male to the rescue?

Anyway I needed an adventure. I needed a change of scenery. I needed to get on the highway and do it by myself. I had an adventure. I panicked by myself. When I got home I had a great memory and no one else needed to help me make that memory.
