In which 5 hours turns out not to be very much time for learning a skill

Yesterday I did a thing that made me feel like a proper grownup. You see, the YoT recently got his learner's licence. This gives him the right to drive a car - as long as someone with a full licence is in the passenger seat. Yes, you guessed right, that someone is me.

Well, he's had 5 lessons to get him going, but lessons are expensive and from here to the 120 hours' driving he's supposed to get in the next 8 months or so, it'll be mostly me.

And since the long weekend's over, now it's time to get back to the study grindstone. This morning I printed out exam papers from the last 6 years. It appears I'll have to answer 3 questions from a list of 7, all long answers. They seem to be hooked on the Chicago school, feminist criminology, and this guy who insisted that there will always be wicked people and the best we can do is to keep them away from the rest of us. I guess that's right realism/conservative criminology - I'm not sure they really want to hear what I think of that tbh. Anyway, at least now I know where to focus my study. One week to go and I'm free!

Today, this is making me happy:

He just looks so pleased with himself!
