Parking on the Side...!!!

Hey Everyone,

Yesterday, after an awesome Salmon dinner with my mom and step dad. We decided to go brush up my skills on Parallel Parking practice since I will be taking my Driving test on the last day of this month and it's been two years since I last did it. I'm proud to say that I didn't do as bad as I thought I would. My parents got out of the car and sat on the bench and let me do it by myself a few times which I think was awesome after they both did almost to say the least horrible jobs themselves. I was overly confident my first time and hit the curb but I still got myself in the spot. Other than that minor mistake, I would of passed my Parallel Parking test depending on the instructor I would of got. I went around for another try but I didn't park as well as I would of liked so I tried again with my step dad in the car. The first time I did it with him in the car, I was nervous and I didn't back in correctly so I pulled around to do it again. The second time I did it, I did a perfect Parallel Parking job if I say so myself. I was so proud of myself.

Of course, right after I did my awesome parking job. My moms car started to act up and it was leaking coolant all over the road. So I pulled into a spot (badly I might add) and turned the car off after instruction from the parents. My step dad let the car cool down and then he got in the driver's seat to try and start it. The car started on the second try and we went to the gas station to pick up coolant for the car. The cars fixed and I'm happy. Hopefully the car will last until after I take my test. I'm not too worried but seeing as how I don't have a job it might be kind of hard to buy another used car right now.
