What's the challenge?
To drive home by myself at night.
What are you afraid of and why?
I'm generally afraid of accidents and driving has a big risk mostly late at night when people are not at their best. The truth is that I not only don't trust other drivers, I don't trust myself behind the wheel.
How was the experience?
When I was living in Miami (less than a year ago), I would avoid any type of event that included me driving at night by myself mostly. I missed dinner parties, birthdays, networking events and so on. This time, I wanted to face my fear and prove myself that I can get to my destination safe and sound so I drove from Midtown to Hollywood and actually enjoyed the ride. I must admit I was super tense the whole time and my hands hurt at the end from holding the wheel so tight for 30 minutes. But, it was worth it and I kinda feel proud of myself for doing it. Back to subway rides now!
