Hana's First Driving Lesson OR Hana is Such a Girl OR Not Such a Great Idea

This was yesterday.  





  1. Learning how to drive a car online has become increasingly popular in recent years. Online learning provides students with the opportunity to study where and when they can. The types of driving lessons available online include theory lessons and drivers' ed lessons, as well as virtual driving lessons. Many online driving lesson websites also provide free information to help students gain as much relevant driving information as possible.

  2. After reading some nice stuff in your article I really feel speechless, because it is quit pretty article. Beside this it is also a long lasting article. Thanks for giving me such type of useful information..

  3. Nice start guys...I went through the website and I found that you made decent point here. Keep up the topic that everyone can choose one of the best. Thanks

  4. It reminds me so much of my first time behind the wheel. :D It was really freaking scary. But Hana’s lucky you were there by her side. :) It is one of the best ways to influence her driving habits: to be her copilot while she’s learning to drive. “No Swearing,“ love that!

  5. Relax and keep your focus! Learning how to drive is something that must be taken seriously. Anyway, it’s only normal for Hana to be nervous and seemingly out of control, it’s her first day after all. In time, after several lessons, she’ll have enough confidence to drive on her own.

  6. The first time driving is always scary so don't worry! As an Instructor I can safely say everyone's the same to begin with. Stick with it and it'll be easier in no time at all.

  7. I was like that too on my first driving lesson. At first, I was so calm and relaxed, but when I started the engine, I suddenly got so nervous and panic attack hit me. It’s a good thing that I have a reliable driving instructor; he did very well in calming me down. Thanks to my younger brother/driving instructor for being patient with me!

The Counterfeit Experience of the Straight Spouse

The conversation has to continue as long as the wrong people keep bringing it up (April 2017, Ensign pg. 33).

The further I get from my experience in a mixed-orientation marriage, the more acute my understanding of how my experience, as the straight spouse, is and was marginalized.

Don't get me wrong! I'm the biggest cheerleader for the gay spouse, feeling trapped and unable to live authentically.  I'm the one banging on the other side of the closet door, begging, "Sweetheart, come on.  Stop doing this to yourself.  It's 2017 and depression or suicide is so unnecessary for THIS." 

But there are also the experiences of the men and women who are/were the straight spouse, like... Ashley 1.0.

We aren't living authentically either.

And our suffering and scars don't seem too important. You may have read about how I super duper wanted to drive my mini-van off of Cedar mountain. 

If you're just joining this conversation:  No, it is not just about sex. …

In Which I Feel Compelled to Start a Blog Because of a Club and a Unicorn...

My name is Ashley.  I was Mormon for the first 36 years of my life.

Yep, I was baptized when I was 8.  I went to BYU where I received a Bachelors in Theatre.  I married a returned missionary in the Mt. Timpanogas Temple.  We were full tithe payers.  I fulfilled several callings diligently, including serving as Primary President for 2 years.

About a year after my divorce, I was chatting with my new bishop, who I had known for several years prior to that.  He asked me, "So, Ashley, why did you and Matt get divorced?"

I replied, "Matt is a homosexual."

I just looked him in the eye after I said this and waited a few seconds while he absorbed it.

Then he asked, "Well, was there another problem as well?  Like drinking? Or gambling?"
I looked him in the eye a second time and replied, "Nope.  Just that."

He was genuinely confused.

The White Man

Let's leave this ambiguous.

Also, I'm not gonna tell you about experiences that took place with just one white man. For this, I'll make it one lumpy conceptual White Cisgender Heterosexual Conservative Male (cue the music from the 'Beef-It's What's For Dinner!' music).

In the work force, I have to deal with him. I have to play the game of diplomacy without compromising who I am. If it's mental gymnastics, it's the balance beam in heels with someone patting me on the head saying, "Gosh, I just don't know how you do that! I never could do that! But here are some pointers! Hey! Why did you do it like that?? Why aren't you listening?"

...but I just keep doing my thing.

Utah is the type of prime real estate, and certainly not the most prime, where this guy is King. Everything around him is his dominion. He is not a part of a group that is marginalized. For those of you who do not understand what I mean, I'll present you with the ext…
