How long oh Lord, will it take to learn stick shift?

Out of all the things I’ve wondered about today, I shall share my less emotionally draining concerns. The question is, can I really drive stick shift? I’ve only tried driving a few times and that was mostly with an automatic and in a highly vacant parking lots.

Well today, I drove or more of jerked  and jostled around our neighborhood with my dad in the passenger’s seat of our little corolla. It was hot inside the car but I’m sure that wasn’t the only reason my dad was sweating(as was I). I don’t know how many times I had to restart the engine or burned the wheels. I only got up to second gear(the speed limit is 25mph in the area anyway).

I think it may take me a little while to learn how to drive. My biggest struggle feels like being able to gage the pressure on the accelerator, especially when I first start. I don’t know when I’ll be able to practice again or when my dad will be ready to coach me again. May the Good Lord continue to have mercy and protection over us!
