I talk a lot about my driving anxiety. I'm taking baby steps, and so far so good. But tonight, I have entered the ring. I have to get to my pole dancing lesson, and it requires a fair amount of driving (plus parking anxiety-thank you parking app!). Also I got a new GPS so that helps.

I have the route planned out. I failed to do a test run, and traffic is always unreliable. It's sorta night driving, so that may be easier (I hope). I've been all over Google Maps. I emailed the studio about the best route and where parking is (that isn't street because I hate meters and can't parallel park).

I'm sorta ready for this, and trying not to get myself worked up. I want this lesson so bad, because I want to learn. I refuse to cave and cancel. I probably will find a studio closer, and just use this one just to try it out. But that doesn't mean I can't drive there.

I'm trying here. I need to do this. I'll post tomorrow about the lesson.

But tonight, I am going to drive.
