The new project: Learning to drive

The first half of this year, my big Project was to run a
marathon. That project eventually ended successfully (link to marathon
race report forthcoming, as soon as I get it up), and so I went
looking for a new project. Since I’m almost 30 and still don’t know
how to drive a car, it felt like a suitable project. In some parts of
the world the concept of an adult without a driver’s license is
unheard of, but here in Stockholm the local transportation system is
really good enough that you don’t really need one. Still, it would be
neat to have.

So far I’ve successfully applied for permission to seek a driver’s
license, enrolled into driving school, and even taken a few
lessons. I can now do amazing things like starting the car and
stopping it again, or drive really slow. It’s fun!
