edit// NEVER MIND. Testing an alternative for prints right now +_+b ideally I can have both original and fanart, prints and non-prints and just everything all in one place. Anyway, will update later if it ever works out. For now, original things are available thru dA and fanart prints thru me.

------------

Unrelated...thanks so much for all the congrats on my grad TwT I really wasn't expecting those ;A; 
I've been at university since 2006 though so what you guys should actually be saying is "geez, finally!" and "about time!" =3= Regardless, I'M SO GLAD TO BE OUT OF THERE YAHHHHH (Technically though I'm still waiting for them to check my credits and approve my graduation application....)

So now, at the ripe old age of 24, I'm finally learning to drive \o/ (because I won't have a bus pass from school anymore, boohoo). I had to retake the knowledge test since I last took it 7 years ago and it's long expired. When the licensing office guy looked at my old card, he laughed .__. 

This was my first exchange with my driving teacher cause apparently I don't look my age:
Instructor: Are you a high school student?
Me: No D: I just graduated.
Instructor: Oh. So where are you planning to go to college?
Me: No no, I just graduated.....from college :I

My parking is ok but my turning is horrific.
Yesterday I drove onto the curb. (/ - \) Guys, please run.

Curbs are evil. They're my worst enemy D<
Don't worry, I've been driving for a long time (kinda) and I still hit curbs. Just try to be aware that you will hit a curb, and go over it slowly so you don't mess up your wheels. :3

I'm learning to drive right now too and I find it horrific. >__< I can't park near any cars or else I'll crash into all of them. And driving on that 45MPH road and then slowing to make a turn doesn't really help. May the both of us be able to learn to drive safely. And congrats on your graduation!

It's okay. I don't have a license either. In fact I still get mistaken for a middle schooler in public despite being 18 Q_Q

lol I was opposite to you when I first learned driving. Parking was so hard for me.

For left turns at intersections, keep your wheels straight. You don't have to turn the wheel a whole lot (I assume you're in USA and you drive on the right)
For right turns at intersections, you can slant your wheels to the right a bit first when waiting for the right moment. Turn the wheel more than you would with left turns, sometimes with hand-over-hand steering.

Good luck!

But wow at least you're not scared of driving like some people? Better late than never to get your license..
And I hated left turns the most, cuz that's what got me on the test =__= Good luck with driving! ;u;b

I like driving for the most part, the high speed feeling is nice 8)
Haha as for turns, I have the opposite problem as you. Left turns are ok, but my right turns are either way too sharp or so wide that I cross into the wrong lane =3=u

r3nisa Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013   Digital Artist
LOL oh is that how you hit the curb? xD And I hated left turns because during my test, the light turned yellow but there were lots of people walking still, and I was supposed to inch up to them instead of stay in the middle of the intersection (but I didn't know that) -- so the tester failed me =__=

Driving tests can be such a pain. Once you start getting behind the wheel more though, it comes naturally. Trust me, I used to hate the idea back when I was learning. Now, it's become second nature. :)

hahahahhahah you made me laugh out loud when I read that you drove onto the curb.
Dun worry I had a friend who drove up onto a big, huge snowpile.
The car almost tipped ∑(;°Д°)
... She did this 3 times........ And she HAD a license :iconguhuplz:

My point being, you are not alone :iconkidapatplz:
And I bet you will be awesome at driving ehehheh (ᅌᴗᅌ)

I was literally hanging and holding on to that thing in the roof(?)so that I wouldn't slide down on her while she was driving.
Yes... She just kept driving and screaming...
Screaming. That made me feel secure .___________.

First of: Congratz with graduating! Good luck moving out, glad I don't have to do that yet :p ( would have congratulated you before, but I read both journals at the same time ;p) Also, GEEZ, IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!!

Anyway, it looks like we're both going for our drivers license now! :p I'm glad we don't live near eachother now, a crash with us would be definite (hehe) I'm sure it's not that bad, though. Take some practice and I'm sure you'll make it out alive! Good luck!

Maybe you'll want to look at stores likes society6 or redbubble to sell prints? A lot of artists are going for those these days instead of using dA's print system!
