I passed my driving FTT!

*I am pretty claustrophobic so the only kind of dance parties I know of are the ones at home where I’m all by myself. I have never stepped into a club or anything before but I hope you like my interpretation of those strobe lights.

You probably think I’m a bit too excited, because I just passed a mere theory test, not even the practical driving test. In fact, you probably think I’m a lot like the fat dude who just won the wii tennis championships but has never actually played tennis before in his life.
But trust me, this was really huge for me because of how high the chances of me failing was.

I had so much to do the past week, I only started studying a day before. I finished reading the FTT handbook in the morning of my test, and didn’t even have time for the Q&A book. I just did one online trial (which I failed for that matter) before leaving for the actual test.

Yet I had so much peace the whole time leading up to it I don’t know how. This pass was by so much grace, I don’t even. All Jesus man.

Anyways, on a pretty random but related note, I think they need to re-edit and reprint the FTT handbook because I cannot stand how it has so many grammar mistakes in it.

I tried to restrain the inner grammar Nazi in me from getting angsty but it was really quite frustrating, especially when I was trying to speed-read due to time constraints.

I remember there was this page that had like 3 grammar mistakes altogether which is way too many for a single page to handle you poor page
Then in the actual test itself, there was a grammar mistake in one of the questions and it really bugged me. I mean I know in Singapore we just Singlish all the way, anyhow talk etc but even in school all test questions had to be grammatically sound because they were official tests and this was an official test and official things cannot have mistakes they cannot.

The question went something like this: 

But that’s just my OCDs speaking I am truly very happy that I passed so I am just gonna go and comfort some book pages and dance some more.
