I think I may be getting better at parking. Or maybe I was just having a lucky day. I’ve noticed that I park too far to the right side of my parking space so I’ve been consciously trying to fix that. Today I’ve been pretty good at parking in the middle of the space. I’m still having trouble figuring out how far to pull ahead in the space since I can’t see the hood of my car. But I just use the rear view camera to see how close I am to the back line. I haven’t had to fix the parking job as much today. Sometimes I fix it once, and others I don’t fix it at all! I’ve also gotten better at pulling into a parking space. I don’t seem to be pulling into the middle of two spaces anymore.
I also haven’t been as sweaty when I drive anymore. I’ve been pretty comfortable driving lately. My boyfriend bought me a magnet for the back of the car that says “Student Driver: Please be patient.” I think has helped me not feel so nervous. Now people will know why I do the things I do if I go crazy haha.
That is so cute that he bought you a magnet! I am really confident in my driving, its the parallel parking that scares me the most. I have a honda civic so its tiny and easier to not feel as intimated, but when I drive my boyfriends cadillac STS I feel like I am driving a limo the thing is so long! With time you will feel confident! My aunt still sweats when she knows she has to go downtown and will have to try and get in and around tight spaces.
BTW Thanks for letting me know about the font! I fixed it and hopefully it looks better. Designing on Retina display doesn’t help too much when trying to make it look good on everything I guess.
I used to be a very nervous driver even though I got my license when I was 16. I was fine driving on streets, but the highway made me freak out. You’re doing the right thing though…keep trying and stay calm! Love the magnet, too! That’s very cute.
I think you’re doing great and that it’s good you want to hone your driving skills 🙂
I have a friend who also used to be nervous when driving but she practiced a lot and became better. Like they say, practice makes perfect.
The magnet was a sweet gift awww
I’ve always wanted to learn how to drive and I think I will in a few months or so. Your post gave me a few hints so thank you!
