Driving
Yesterday was a monumental day in my life, as I passed my skills test and finally got my driver's license.

Driving seemed to be an insurmountable hurdle for me, as I failed the driving test three times when I was in my teens and I acquired a complex about being able to do it.

I'm not going to say I'm the best driver in the world, but I do well enough handling a vehicle that I feel confident behind the wheel.

However, getting tested on anything tends to give me a fair bit of anxiety and having to deal with a bunch of random variables while doing so doesn't help.

With that said, I managed to pass the test yesterday (after a three-hour delay due to the tester's migraine), sat in the DOL for 90 minutes to get my license, and then put in six hours at the brewery afterwards.

It still feels a bit surreal this morning, but I'm already thinking about all the things required to get mobile (insurance, a vehicle) and looking forward to going places that eluded me before – especially with a certain special lady to join me.

It also hasn't completely sunk in on how much this opens up for me and how much it could alter my future trajectory, which for the time being seems kind of stable.

Of course, as change is the only consistent thing in this world, it stands to reason that more changes will be coming – I've had a lot of changes to deal with this year already.

It also opens up the possibility of an old idea that was inspired by a certain nomad so many years ago, though it's difficult to say if I will go that route – I certainly am inspired to downsize to the degree that he did, though.

Now that I have written of what has transpired, I will try not to concern myself with future possibilities for the rest of today and this weekend – I will exist in the present and embrace the calm that has come with this accomplishment.

Next week, the work begins again.
