BIG LARGE AND HUMONGOUS LESSON:
STOP PROCRASTINATING NOW.
I am running around like crazy everywhere right now. Going to interviews, going to work, going to my classes and all the other things I am committed to. My legs are having bigger muscles and I am running out of breath. I need to attend these things in time and I don't have the longest legs of humanity. IF ONLY I COULD DRIVE.
OMG. If I could just talk to myself three years back I'M GOING TO LITERALLY SLAP MYSELF and tell to my sixteen year old self to stop procrastinating.
I was sixteen when I started learning how to drive. I'm nineteen now and this is the only moment of my life that I have an urge to finally get a driver's permit and pursue driving.
I have amount of reasons why I keep on putting driving aside in my life....
Things that keep me off from driving:
1. I never thought driving could be so essential.
2. Why drive when there is Subway?
3. Why drive when there are drivers?
4. My lousy motto: "Oh well! Anyone can drive for me."
5. I am so effing lazy to get my driver's licence
6. I am not interested in cars
7. Cars are another responsibility (gas, cleaning, maintenance, etc.)
8. I don't posses any spatial skills in any of my body cell.
9. I'll get lost.
10. I'll crash somebody's car, person or a poor tree
11. I might die in a car accident
12. I don't want to get any tickets!
and my list could go on and on and on. Name it. It's all my excuse and reasons why I don't drive yet.
But now it's making me cry. I don't know understand my young self why I postponed all the opportunity I could get in getting a driver's license. Now I am trying to chase my years to come to finally get one.
This week I'm going to work on getting my licence. It's making me cry and guilty on why just now I'll get it but I know nothing is too late. I just thought that I shouldn't have postponed something so essential in my life.
I am now a working student with a lot of things going on in my life and walking and taking trains are not the best way to go on my classes and at my work and interviews fast. Now driving is something essential to me. If I was just smart enough to see this coming. If I could just learned it way before when I could I should have! I should have been driving to the places I want to right now fast and quick.
So to everyone who is reading this right now. Please, if you can learn it, if it's available to you, if it's convenient and it's an opportunity to learn something new to build yourself up, PLEASE DO IT. Big lesson here. DO IT. MAKE IT HAPPEN. DO IT NOW. Not tomorrow, not next year and please don't ever wait for the best time you could use a skill or a knowledge, just just do it. DOOOO IT!!! (do I need to emphasize more?).
Learn everything you can learn now while you are young. If you think you are old now, well let me remind you that NOTHING IS TOO LATE. If you will start it now, you are never too old to do it! Don't wait for another year older for you to learn something new. JUST DO IT. (You listen to Nike!)
Life could only give us so much time,
