Okay, I am officially announcing my failure! Not an easy thing to do! But this blog is about challenging myself and getting out of my comfort zones.
Okay, let me do it!
I flunked! Horribly! On my driver’s road test.
It feels awful. And completely mortifying. I have half a mind to dally for a fortnight more after which I shall not be eligible for a road test (visa requirements) and put off the entire thing. Seriously! I almost feel like doing it- I am so upset.
Almost thirty and failing a road test feels extremely stupid and shameful! (Despite the fact, that I stayed in a place where 85% people use public transport or walk for twenty five of those years!)
But, I am determined to push myself. I always get nervous at the wheel and so, blundered at the test. But with more practice, more positive talk, I am convinced I am going to pass. (I have driven in one of the most populous cities of the world and never harmed a single living being- both two legged and four legged varieties, so I should be fine)
With a determined spirit, off to practice! Have a lovely week ahead!
It seems that this month is full of challenges- big and small, accidental and self-inflicted. A run-down in my favorite form of posting- a list:
My current challenges are:
- to complete 2016 seconds of micro-volunteering. A quarter of the year passed almost a month back and I am yet to come even close to the end. Sigh!
- finishing 10K words for CampNaNoWriMo. 10K is a self-imposed deadline but am on only halfway there! Yikes!
- learning to drive. My instructor has told me that I shall pass if I keep focussed. I do admit, driving in US is way easier than India. But I have not driven regularly anywhere, thanks to amazing and cheap public transport. So, I do have loads of self-doubts.
- finishing a coding project I started at the beginning of the month. I simply have not been able to get a large enough chunk of time to sit and code.
- exercising properly thrice a week. This week has been so bad I only could do two minute stretched several times a day. I have cut myself some slack though and comforted myself with trudging up an down staircases with the happy toddler. (she loves staircases)
- Finishing the book I started to read- ‘Game Changers in Education’. I did finish reading Bozi Dar’s Promoted.
Well, lots to do, lots to achieve. Have a successful weekend folks!
It seems like any time I have friends or family or AuntFlow over, my diet and good intentions are out of the window. Pathetic!
But no use making excuses. Now is as good a time as any. So, back to eating, drinking and exercising again.
I shall be heading to India soon for a wedding. So, this month is all I have to prepare myself to fit into gorgeous clothes and practise eating well even when a guest or during travel. That is the challenge for these 30 days.
Please do share tips to stay on course while traveling and dining as a guest while visiting relations. What works for you? Sharing is caring!
This week has been quite challenging! I finally applied for my Drivers Instruction Permit. While I got a perfect score on the written test, the actual driving is going to be just as imperfect. I am terrified of driving. But determined to practise, practise, practise and practise some more till I am licensed to drive. Challenge accepted!
Hello Dear Readers,
I am back agin with my list of Attire for the month. I slipped us this month. Twice I wore the same T, albeit with different jeans and accessories and hairdos. And 17th, I neither noted what I wore nor do I remember. Sigh!
But still, having fun with this challenge especially as I chucked away a lot of my ill-fitting, need-repair clothes into a suitcase to review later. I shall get around to them later with a six month deadline. If they are still in that suitcase, I shall just drop off the good ones at a donation center.
Enjoy the weekend! And Thanks for reading!
