Now that the weather is warmer, I've been getting out more. Not just for outfit photos, though obviously I'm ridiculously excited that I can take those again, too. Today I went for my first driving lesson to learn to drive a stick-shift (manual) car. I thought that it would be good to learn because it helps make you a more aware driver, and because it will give me more options when I'm in the boat to buy a car. I'm an absolutely terrible driver (stick or no stick) and it will obviously take me a bit to learn it all fully. It's terrifying when you remember how much damage you can really do with a car! The other night my dad reminded me of the time I crashed his car into the planter in our driveway, which was obviously the boost of self-esteem I needed after having just been dumped.
That wind-action was definitely catching my hair today. Having massively thick hair in the wind is terrible. You might as well just call me Cousin It on days like today.
I'm trying to let the fresh spring weather cheer me up a bit. I've been making an effort to try new things, meet new people, and go new places. I've got a photoshoot planned this weekend with a new friend, I'm arranging a trip to see the dinosaur exhibit at the Science Museum, and I've already got my next driving lesson planned with my friend! I'm still trying to shake the friend drama, and find a full-time position, but all in all, life is good. And even when it's not, at least I have a carrot sweater to make up for it.
