Imma take it slow, just as fast as i can

I feel like I’m 15 again, petrified, and learning how to drive. The size, make, and model doesn’t matter at this point, I just need to learn how to turn the key, hit the break, and steer…and not die. There’s no way to “learn” other than by doing, and hoping everything will turn out alright. But…
