Downtown traffic & preparations!



And here we go with the newest update:

Monday, 05.06.2018

My first lesson after two weeks of being on break duo to my cold and finishing the classes. He went all crazy and took me into the inner city. Lots of traffic, tram driving on the road, longer tunnels with junctions in them... I did good driving through the city but got tired closer to the end on the way back and made some mistakes. 

On Monday evening I went to the class to "inspect" the new instructor. He did quite good and I told my teacher that he did a great job choosing him. One example: The batteries in the mouse were kinda dead during the last weeks. Two teachers mentioned it, but basically ignored it. He noticed it and the second he did he told us to wait and got new batteries. 

I also found out that my application was approved! So that means that the moment I'm ready I can do my exams. Next week I will have a preliminary test at my driving school and if I pass that I can do the real thing at the Technical Supervisory Association aka TÜV in German. I pass all the exams at home, so I'll just continue to learn a bit and I hope that I manage to pass. (30% fail the exam for the first time according to recent studies).

Tuesday, 06.06.2018

Today we did a normal lesson. A tiny bit of Autobahn, parking and regular driving. And a tiny bit of therapy at the end. Seriously, he is great building me up! He told me to decide a bit quicker. I wait to long instead of acting. (For example: Waiting for a car to park in or drive around it. Both options would have been right, but I was awkwardly in the middle because I couldn't decide what to do.) And I should not question everything all the time, just do it. (This is difficult, because I question everything...) 

Tomorrow we will do the same thing again, so I can focus on the things I did wrong today. 

But today was relaxing compared to the inner city mess on Monday. 

By the way, I found an online test with some of the question I have to answer. There is an option to do it in English or other languages, just like the real exam. Click on the little flags to change the language. If you want to try it out, here is the link: https://fahrerlaubnis.tuev-dekra.de/quiz.php?land=UK (Choose category B and click on "Start the demo version online". It is free and safe!) I passed my try with 0 points.

      Of course, Lori’s first reaction is “I prayed for this every day.”  Yeah, Lori, this is all about you. You and your super special prayers. :pb_rollseyes:

      I’ll continue to be happy for Alyssa and her husband. Even people who have views with which I disagree deserve to be able to experience the joy of having a family. I desperately hope that Alyssa chooses a different path than her mother when it comes to child rearing, and I suspect she will. Many people grew up in fundamentalist households and turn out to be awesome, open-minded, loving people, and I hope the same for this little one as well.

      I use both the preferred Nationalist and Unionist name at the same time, it would be quicker to use map coordinates lol

      I do that too when I have to say where exactly I’m from. But as far as randomers asking? I’ve been from anywhere from Strabane to Coleraine to Dungiven 😂

      Some people in Africa use Christianity and witchcraft as a way to control members from a community. They are usually banned from their village. Some so called pastures will cleansed of their “demons” for the right price. These so called witches are social stigmas. They are blamed for anything and everything that goes wrong in the community.  Many children are targeted.
