“Oh man… that’s not nice, I shouldn’t. Woosah, Meg. Woosah.”
My blood pressure rises up to the tippy-top of my ear lobes and
I can literally feel a panic attack waiting in the wings of my soul.
I have a real problem with how inconsiderate, or neglectful, or unaware, or RECKLESS other drivers are, and my anxiety levels shoot through the roof.
When this happens, kindness flies out my passenger side window.
A driver’s therapist? A certain type of music? A different route?
(Yeah right. In Northern, Va. all routes are awful).
But only if you let them.
So what did I do?
I rebelled. I partied, and I partied hard. (something I did almost none of in grade school).
I came out of the proverbial cage like a bat out of hell, and I avoided responsibility like the plague.
Finally, in 2004, tired of running myself ragged and having nothing to show for it, I made a serious decision to go back to school. With the help of my family, I stared at a community college where I would spend the next two years busting my ass before transferring to a university with a 3.8 GPA. Yeah… I was serious about it this time.
