Something I’ve Learned.

by reenaissance

Hello. It’s not unusual that I will be posting something at strange times like this. It’s 1 a.m., and I have a paper this evening. Typical me 🙂

I would like to share something with all my fellow readers. Something that I’ve learned from the past few days. Since my sister has bought a new car, she “inherits” her old car to me so basically I’m not gonna be a university bus passenger anymore, which is a good thing for me. The hardships and struggles that you have to go through just to get a bus ride at my university, I don’t even want to mention about it. It’s horrible. There are too many people crammed in one bus most of the time, and I am so glad that I have a chance to be away from all those things. Okay by the way, now that I have my own car, means I have to drive it everyday to class, right? The problem is, I tend to feel scared to be on the road, especially when I’m driving alone. I never have the guts to try routes that I am not familiar with. All I have in my mind is the thoughts of crashing into trees/other cars/pedestrians/etc. To be honest, I have never drove for more than 5 kilometers before, on my own, until last week. I told myself that if I want to live, I have to be brave. I have to get out of this cocoon of uncertainty. Yes, that’s what I did last week, and it’s all thanks to my elder sister (the one who inherits her old car to me). She forced me to drive as far as I can and she encouraged me to do it, to get out of my comfort zone. And from that moment, I can already feel a new life flowing into my soul. Everything feels so good as I stepped on the pedal and drive my heart out. I was reluctant at first but I instantly fell in love with my new-found freedom while I was on the road. I thought to myself, “Hey, this is not bad at all. Why haven’t I done this before? What’s stopping me?” and stuffs.

I know this might sound lame since it only happened to me at this age, but it’s never too late to get a taste of life, you know. Before I continue my endeavour for my last minute revision for the finals, I’ll leave something for you guys to ponder upon. Here it is. Cheers!
