slowly but surely

Went driving today, including a little time on some bigger streets. I'm still having trouble with stopping smoothly at stop signs, but I'm getting better. Mum and I are going to try going back out again tomorrow and working on parking. I'm still not entirely sure where the car is around me, especially when parking, but at least I can pull into parking spots and be mostly inside the lines.

I've also filled out three more job applications, one online and two that I'll be dropping off on Monday. I'm cautiously optimistic about one of them, but I'm not really getting my hopes up.

What my driving instructor told me for smooth stops was to start braking, then ease up, then brake again. Sort of a brake-beat-brake thing. It's worked pretty well for me.

Also WOOOO DRIVING PROGRESS. Good luck on your job apps!

I didn't realize that you were actually learning to drive.

My problem is that I underestimate how long it takes to brake, so I wind up stopping short and missing the mark. I don't do that all the time (obviously; Mum wouldn't have taken me on Randolph Road for a few blocks if I did), but I do it often enough that it's a cause for concern.

Also, I need to pick your brain when you're online sometime in the next few days. I want to ask you questions about stuff for my character generation, but I don't want to do them in slow-motion via e-mail.
