Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I will admit that I am a tiny bit glum (much less than I was!) about failing my driver's license exam. But my mom cooked sweet potatoes in the microwave and put salt and pepper on them and gave some to me. Yummy. And I talked with Nandini and read Smithsonian magazine. And now I'm mostly over it.

If I were younger than 18, I'd have to wait two weeks before re-taking the exam. But I can take it again "whenever [I'm] ready." Ah, the advantages of age.
