I just put gas in a car for the very first time, ever. I am irrationally proud.

This weekend has been step 1 in my quest to re-learn to drive, after an 11 year hiatus, since our local bus service stops during the summer months. I rented a car on Saturday morning, and did some driving around town both today and yesterday. Altogether, about 100 miles, including one highway on-ramp (the scariest thing of all, as far as I'm concerned).

It has been entirely not awful. It's still not easy, and I still was scared spitless on the highway on-ramp, but I made it.

Step 2, sometime in the next few weeks: Buy a car. Get insurance. Ye gods. I can't believe I'm doing this. I'm not sure if I'm more afraid of never getting any better, and being terrified of driving forever, or actually getting used to it, and becoming One Of Them. Being a non-driver has been such a big part of my life for so long now.
