I am doing very well!
I haven't made a new entry for 5 days or so, have I? That's simply because I've been very busy so I just couldn't get around it it.
My life has been much better since my partner and I bought a second-hand Mitsubishi Lancer. When I started driving, I was a bit nervous about parking and driving on the high way(, which I hadn't done even in Japan). But the more I have driven , the more I have gotten used to it and now I feel more comfortable about it. Actually I even feel excited about driving!! When I try something new, I sometimes worry and think too much and end up taking a looong time before I actually start it. But I think that in terms of these kinds of things, you just take the plunge and do them without having a second thought! I gotta break my old habit, don't I ?
Anyway, I am very happy with our car and I can clearly say that we made a right move. It doesn't really look like a second-hand car, you know!
Now I can drive to town on my own so I can look around shops there to my content without feeling guilty for dragging my partner's feet(he hates shopping!) I feel more independent. What a nice feeling!
I've started to going to school (TAFE) too, in order to make friends and of course to study English. The beauty of this English class is it's free of charge! Since my school is located in a rural area, the class is relatively small so it makes me feel relaxed and motivates me to improve my English skills. It's been such a long time since I finished my school days so that adds more excitement to it, too!
