Depress the clutch, release the clutch.

Just a short one, this time.

I’m learning how to drive a manual transmission car, by way of being blessed with one recently.

I’m doing reasonably well with the concept, and with further thought, I think that if I ever need to buy another car and it’s not all electric, I could buy a stick now, and not feel hopelessly lost. I stall much less than I used to, and have only ground the gears once, where I thought I had the clutch depressed but had let go too soon.

Not so bad for someone who has never successfully driven a manual transmission until just recently. 🙂

Next on the list: spark plugs, wiper blades, and possibly some of those LED DRLs with flowing turn signal lights.
