I got my license!!! :D Here's proof (or maybe I just like to show it off, lol).

I've already driven to The Boyfriend's house and to Jewel (the grocery store). Yaaaay! :D

The jazz show last night was fun. We ate pizza while we were there, and then left a little early for ice cream. We went back and watched the end of the show, and then went home. Talked to The Boyfriend on the phone for a while, and then went to sleep. I think I'm hanging out with The Best Friend tonight, so yaaay! :) That's all. Bye!

p.s. I don't know if they do this in every state, but here in Illinois, there are 2 different types of licenses. As you can see, mine is vertical. This is because I'm under 21. I guess it just makes things easier on cashiers at stores and whatnot. When you turn 21, you can go get a new license (well, you have to, as it expires 3 months after your 21st birthday), and that one is horizontal. Soo... yes.


  1. Congratulations on your license! :O
    I still need to get mine. Glad you had fun at that jazz show too.

    I was wondering about the vertical-ness. I was like, does everyone in that state get licenses like that?

    Here in California, we get the same license as just says "provisional" near the top. But once we're 18, we get a new one without "provisional".

  2. Face! :O

    I don't think we have that in California. If I'm not wrong, we just get a horizontal license and on it are two bars that indicate when you turn 18 (yellow bar I think) and when you turn 21 (red bar) so the guy at the counter knows to kick you out when he catches you trying buy a ton of booze.

  3. @lee: thanks! :D Are you 16 yet? I can't remember.

    @allan: yes, indeed, face. If you look to the right of my picture on my license, you can kinda see the red and yellow lines next to it. One says the date of my 18th birthday and the other says the date of my 21st birthday.

    @marianna: thanks! :)

  4. Haha yes, I am 16.
