That damn driving test

I flunked my driving test today. This is indeed not a mainly good season for me. I screwed up the driving test for the second time and I am not it the best of my mood again today. My tears fell instantaneously as I saw Hubby walked out of the DMV building towards my car. He already knew by the way he found me that I flunked the test again. And all he said was… "there will be another time". But I don’t want another time. I want my license now. But that doesn’t gonna happen because I flunked that damn driving test again.

I flunked my driving test today. I flunked because I wasn’t able to back up straight. I wasn’t able to do the backing again just like the first time. I also flunked the test because I almost has a collision with another car in the intersection as I was about to turn left. I needed to change lane and I had to look over my left shoulder to make sure that there was no car coming so I can change lane. When I look in front of me there was this car that was not in the right lane and it was too late for me to see it. My bad, so I flunked that damn driving test again.

I don’t wanna flunk another driving test. I’m tired of taking the test in fact. So maybe I will not take anymore driving test. Screw up driving tests. I’ll just stay home and blog till I die. But… I want to have my driver’s license. I badly need my driver’s license. So I am mailing the request form again to get a new schedule for my “third” damn driving test.

Sis, dont' give up..When I did my driving test before, I keep on talking to the examiner so that I will feel comfortable driving..and it does help.
Yes, what ever you do, don't give up, and you'll pass the driving test.

Life is never as easy as we want it to be always, but good things do come to those that stick to the end.

All the best with your next attempt.

I agree with your hubby. You can always do it again. I hope you don't get disheartened too much. At least you didn't bash that other car! hehe I'm sure you'll do better next time. Third time lucky, ika nga. :)

@ Gina... I can't give up now Gina... I badly need my license so I can apply for work soon. So I have no choice but to persevere here.

@ Driving Instructor... coming from the expert... I guess I really have to take your word for it. I wish I could take the driving test online and get you as my instructor... hahahaha... would you pass me? silly me.

@ Soy... hope my 3rd attempt will surely be the lucky one for me and finally get my license.

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
