Here just going to tell you what I have been doing and how I have been coping with my new life in wales As a chef and volunteer. And also winning my own battle with living a drug and crime free life. Well am loving it right now the new me has got the old me in a head lock and I aint letting go. Because you don’t just quit drugs you have to quit the life style you even have to quit friends and places you go cos there all triggers . An you don’t want them. I struggle with stuff still now and I always will. I’ll tell you more on that soon.
Any way well i been out of prison couple of months now and doing my driving lessons just had my test I was so desperate to pass only because couple of reasons anyone who knows me knows I been driving since I was a teen. I basically lived in cars since I was 13 that is not a exaggeration at all me and friends that’s how we lived in stolen cars every night. I was banned 2 times before I was old enough to even take my test. When this first happened I said to my solicitor why they ban me if am not old enough to drive and he said so next time when you steal a car your guna get another charge of driving whilst banned and then they can send you to prison for longer.
Yeah well he was right that happened next time I got 4 months for twock and 4 months for driving whilst banned and another ban to do extended test. Means banned until you pass an extended test it also means that my test was double two drivening test in one. One hour ten mintues befor that dint matter now I was doing my test tht matters a lot my first test was on a Monday the worst weather all year torrential rain was really bad I started off good then first round about ten minutes in a failed I went in the wrong lane I still at to drive around with the guy for a hour knowing I had failed. I still try to chat him up a bit for a pass did not work.
After this I was gutted this was lowest I been since I got out I wanted it so bad I already had a car as well ready a nice car a fiesta. It was November as well so I was thinking I could drive home for xmas. I was so gutted. I don’t know why I thought I was guna pass 1st time I was quite mad about it. I always do that set my self goals to try and reach and I rush it all the time then when I don’t get there I get mad with myself. I just have to remember that things take time and you are guna fail but when you do you just try again. Lucky I had already chatted with Alison about what if and she said if you fail you just do it again as soon as you can do not quit. (if you don’t know Alison lady who got me here from prison best teacher ever) So when I got home booked two weeks later I passed.
Now I got to deal with whole load of new problems BILLS insurance which cos my past is massive. I am happy to pass and love the freedom of owning my own car thoe. This was massive achviement for me so proud I am.
Hopefully tell you all more soon.
