So I’ve been really busy for the past couple of weeks. Last week was especially hard because I was working around 5 hours each day and I had worry about my school assignments. And I was totally exhausted at the end of each day. 😴
One way that I like to cope to with all the stress is that I drive my car. I don’t drive her as much while I’m at school because there’s no need for me to. Living less than a block from campus and being about 5 minutes from job means that driving isn’t really necessary. But I drive my car whenever I have a good excuse.
This past Friday, I got back to my apartment at around 8. After contemplating what I was going to eat for dinner, I decided to jump in my car and drive to the next town over to get food that wasn’t available in my college town. It was such a relief to not have to worry about anything other than the basic protocols that come with driving, as well as changing the music stations, occasionally singing my heart out. Plus it was nice to just spend time alone after spending the day trying to be of service to other people.
I did the same thing today. I got a postcard in the mail from one of the parcel carriers notifying me that they have a package addressed to me but could not deliver it due to the fact that the sender had forgotten to include the apartment number. So I got in my car and drove the 15 miles (24.1 km) south and got it from the carrier facility.
Not only is it peaceful for me to drive but my car (a 2011 Nissan Versa I named Cameo) has been with me since just before I turned fifteen. I learned how to drive with my car. It’s what my dad used to chauffeur me around. I have different items in there that remind me of certain times with my family. And it feels kind of homey whenever I drive it. It’s like my family were just in it.
Anyway, that’s all I have for now. I’ll try to update more regularly.
