My car is perhaps the most important part of my drive as it is truly the only way to get around in a big city. Fortunately, I have been lucky enough to have my car for a while which gives me the freedom to drive myself to school. While the ability to drive is great, some days, when the traffic is truly terrible, I harken back to the time in which my parents braved the long road to school while I slept in the passenger seat, unaware of the traffic at all.
7:45 AM, I've just left my house and I'm headed to school. As I make my daily turn onto Preston road, a myriad of red taillights and a seemingly endless line of cars greet me. It seems like this happens everyday, and even though I know I will make it to school, it feels like I'm stuck in the same place for ages at a time. With each nudge forward, I feel myself slowly getting closer to my journey's end.
