I took my road test today

Well today I took my road test to try and get my driving license and I passed. I was nervous about it but I calmed myself down and remembered that my fiancee told me she believes in me and knows I can do this, and did it. Having someone believe in you is so wonderful and makes you feel good about yourself and what you can do. I truly love my fiancee and I know I am very blessed to have her in my life. I appreciate her and what she does for me everyday.

About driving, I'm not planning on getting a car yet as I don't have much money right now because I'm saving for the wedding next June with my fiancee and together we will get a car once we plan out where we will live and what kind of car we should get. So for now it's school, work, and save money. But with the holidays coming, saving money is going to be tough because I want to get my fiancee and my family gifts, so it's going to be tough.

Seinfeld star has lost a fan

For those of you who know me, you know that I like the television show Seinfeld a lot and I watch repeats of the show all the time. But I just read a story on BostonHerald.com about Michael Richards, who played Kramer on Seinfeld, and how he was heckled at a comedy club and then he went back at the group that was heckling him by saying racial slurs at them. I am shocked and disgusted by his actions, and I would have never thought he was that type of person. I have lost a lot of respect for him and now Seinfeld will never be the same for me.

Another driving update

This week I had two more driving lessons. We practiced driving in rotaries, driving on the highway, more three-point turns, a little more parallel parking, driving up and down hills, and parking on hills (facing downhill and uphill). It has been fun and a little challenging for me. I would have to say that parallel parking is the toughest and with parking on hills there is a lot to remember with the emergency brake.

So I have two more classes next week and then I take the driving test with a state trooper. I'm a little nervous about this. Hopefully I don't mess up and fail. :)

PHP will be coming faster to Microsoft IIS

In the article "Microsoft Wants Speed Advantage With Open Source PHP" by Charles Babcock, he says that Microsoft is trying to get PHP to run faster on it's web server. All I can say is finally because I think there are more PHP sites out there than ASP right now. This is good for PHP developers, as myself. I'm no expert in PHP but I consider myself to be experienced with PHP. I think this will also make the PHP community grow even more.

Driving update

Well I have taken my first two driving lessons this week and they have been fun. The first lesson included driving of course, going in reverse, making left and right turns, and parking. In the second lesson I practiced driving in a rotary, parallel parking, changing lanes, and we went over what I did in the last class. It has been fun so far, although the rotary part was tough for me. I have my next lesson next week on Tuesday.
