Driving Stress

I just like taking photos of flowers, maybe I should just save for a dedicated macro lens.

I realized today where a large portion of stress and concern related to young drivers come from: they are often driving their parents car.

Today while driving my car and still getting used to the clutch (only killed it twice today!) my Mom was rather relaxed about it. Compared to when I was initially learning to drive a few years ago and when my brother learned it was a large departure from her normal teaching-to-drive behavior. Then it dawned on me, any damage I do would only be down to my car.

While the odometer only registers 87k while learning how to use a manual transmission must have put a few more miles of wear then is actually registered. Also I washed it today and noticed the sad fact that many of the dirt spots are not so much spots as features of the paint.

Worse case scenario: a $1000 experiment in learning to drive a clutch.
