That's what I call driving!

Quick update:

While the final decision will be made on Monday after another lesson, my heart is already set on switching to Automatic. That means getting another car. But my Grandpa said he will help me fund it. 

Driving today was so so much better. I was at the right speed most of the time (50 when there is 50 allowed and not 40 like before), I drove quicker into roads. I felt better. It was fun to drive and for the first time I was pleased with myself after a lesson.

My instructor said that in the future, there will only be Automatic cars. And even now, many upper class cars are Automatic. (Given that electric cars are also Automatic...) He prefers driving in Automatic as well. It is more relaxing. And he said that sometimes it is quite nice not being able to drive every car.

EDIT: I blame my Autism for the problems with a manual car. Too much to do at once.

I’m glad you’re figuring out what you like. My one lesson on a manual lasted about 2 minutes before I stalled it and my dad ended the lesson (it was his truck). He’s had an automatic for 10 years now and I’m still not allowed to drive it.

      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.

      If they do have a common set of beliefs, why call themselves 'non-denominational'? 

      Does 'non-denominational' mean the church has its own theological interpretation, or that it isn't a member of a denominal association, or that it welcomes people with varying beliefs?

      My understanding of and experience with the non-denominational churches in my area (south LA) is that they basically follow Southern Baptist beliefs, practices and interpretations but that they do not belong to any SB association. There is also peppier music and more jumping and shouting in the services, which is what sets them apart from SB churches and appeals to many of their attendees who might otherwise worship at a SB church. Of course, I haven’t visited every non-denom church around.
