Right now it is Friday morning, the day after my two test drives. I got the mail that my license is ready to be picked up on Tuesday, my Grandpa went and got it for me on Wednesday. Already on Tuesday we called and made appointments for two test drives, one in a Renault Captur with 120 PS and the other one in the new Honda Jazz/Fit with 130 PS. 

First, driving was no problem at all. I felt much better than in the driving lessons. I had no problem using those new cars, took me about a minute and I was used to them. The Renault came first and it was a good drive. Great car, some minor negative things, but overall a good experience. The Honda Jazz was a bit more novel for me due to the CVT. I'm used to double clutches, so it feel a bit weird at the beginning. 

So, it is going to be the new Honda Jazz/Fit Dynamic with 130 PS. Driving felt a tiny bit better in the Renault, but judging by the bigger picture the Honda has more to offer. More practicability due to the Magic Seats, more stuff in it and at least in Germany Honda has a great reputation for being very reliable. With the 130 PS it is okay to drive and I need to hit the gas a bit more than in the car I drove during my classes. 

There are no used cars around, so thanks to my Grandpa and family I'm going to get a new one. Due to my disability card I get a pretty good discount (I had no idea that car companies offer that) and well, I have the full warranty and everything that comes with it. We told them we need the weekend to talk it all through and on Monday we will finish the contract and by then I need to decide on a colour. My Mum said that if we get a new one, I should pick the colour I want, even if it costs a bit more. 

I'll add a picture and the link to the description of the car on the British Honda site (note sure if the US model the same as in Europe) and I will keep you updated about the delivery/pick up date.

The Honda Jazz is not sold in the US. But it does look very similar to the Honda FIT. They may be the same. Cute car, no matter what.

      Yikes!! What is that supposed to mean?! That he's merely affirming the taste of Spanky's "God is sovereign..." or, something more nefarious?!  

      Sounded to me like it was claiming “god was punishing RC Jr by killing these two mothers of many, bereaving their families, etc.” Really f...ed up thinking.

      Clarification. Not my thinking, but the writer’s.

      I see Jill's experience as that of someone who goes from being a student teacher, working under a cooperating teacher who is in the classroom most or all of the time while the student teacher presents lessons. Even though the student teacher is in charge, the cooperating teacher has already set rules and procedures in the classroom in order to make the classroom management go smoothly. Years ago, I worked with a really nice first-year teacher who had very poor classroom management skills and very poor lesson planning skills. I don't know what her student teaching experience was like, but I can't see it possible that if you student teach with a very strong teacher who still likes to maintain some of his or her own control in the classroom, that when you get your own classroom it would be a lot harder to effectively set rules and procedures, maintain discipline, and possibly even create lesson plans.

      Jill was an enforcer and a sister mom and a situation where many of the children if not all of them had been blanket trained, taught instant obedience, and probably faced harsh punishment. now, she is the one responsible for setting of the rules, procedures, and limits, but her sons seem to respond in a different way. She also has a very different co-parent than what Michelle did. although we didn't see it, I know Michelle and Jim Bob had two parents the older children in order to set up a system where their daughters could be sister moms. Just based off what we've seen, Derek has a different personality than Jim Bob and co-parents in a very different way.

    • It may be something of an odd connection, but Allison's determined focus on her singleness reminds me of this never-ending series on single life that a woman named Shani Silver has been writing for Refinery29 for months now.  Seemingly at opposite ends of the ideological/political/whatever spectrum, and they both feel like they have to constantly defend their "single status" and loudly declare how happy they are with it.

      Fuck you Ken!! You aren't one ounce sorry about this woman's circumstances, you are just sorry that your stupid ass wife is caught once again giving dangerous advice. Remember she has repeatedly deleted hotlines and helpful advice from other women. May karma catch up with you and Lori.

      Wich help should she seek? Didn't Lori always say that it's the womans fault if her husband abuses her and that she should pray, become even more meek and submit harder to make him stop? So now she is also at fault for heeding this fucked up advise and didn't seek help. Disgusting

      All of these questions about homeschooling are bringing a very dark question into my mind. I wonder after how many generations, the offspring of the fundies we follow will be functionally illiterate? The first generation moms had high school or even college degrees. We look at Jill Rodrigues and her homeschooling as an example of a second generation, which we can get some idea of her schooling ability by the way Nurie writes. Nurie homeschooling a large brood of her own terrifies me.
