Seeing other kids driving to school in their sophomore year of high school used to rip my heart out. I couldn't wait to get behind the wheel but was stuck riding shotgun with mom. As soon as I got my license I went nuts. The first few months of driving were a straight blur of speeding, doughnuts, ghostriding, Chinese fire drills, the whole works. A few tickets later, I stopped partying so hard behind the wheel, but I could never forget the rush of finally getting to be in the driver's seat. Beats turning 21 any day.
