Tomorrow, I'm going to try the written theoretical drivers test. I'm doing this without studying, as a way of pushing my perfectionism. Obviously I'm going to fail the test, but the idea is that, I will then study at a normal pace, maybe 8 hours a day for 2 weeks, and then feel readier than I do now and then maybe not get too nervous/distracted on trying to get a perfect score.
I've been delaying it for months, maybe even a year, after failing the first try.

If I do fail, I will try my best to say "but hey, you didn't study at all, what could you expect"
Little undecided if I should give myself a reward if I don't fail. Probably shouldn't even imagine that scenario .

Embrace the glorious mess that you are
