This time last year i was so excited that this time this year, i would be able to apply for my provisional driving licence. in fact, one of the first things i said in 2009 was to do with my excitement for driving. so why is it now, just over a week away from my 17th that i'm suddenly not interested? well, it's not suddenly, in fact, it's been a few months really that my interest has been severely lacking. i got my provisional driving licence form and filled it out ages and ages ago but i just haven't sent it off. for one, it's going to cost £50 and secondly, driving lessons etc are going to cost over £1000 in total. and i just cannot afford it. plus, i'd much rather put it off and be able to spend my money on things i want, a luxury that will never lose its novelty, as opposed to thinking i need to save that for lessons and insurance etc.
i bought a railcard last week, that cost £26 and i've been wanting one for a long time, but it's going to be worth it because especially in the near future i'm going to be travelling by train. a lot. spending that amount of money on something like that really didn't bother me like it does with my driving licence. i just find it quite a strange turn of events.
my excitement for half term is at a ridiculous height right now, however i'm not looking forward to two essays at least that have been set so far... A Levels suck.
6 days until Manchester take one. then 3 weeks after that it's Manchester take two. :)
