About to Start my Journey!

by Vanessa

Hello all,


My name is Vanessa X and I'm in truck driving school right now. It's about two weeks into it and I've never driven a standard so I'm having a hard time clutching and whatnot, but I'm feeling quite confident that I'll make it through.

I'm so excited to get out on the open road and see so much, as well as use the alone time to write stories in my head and work on my stand up act.

My plan is to do open mic night in different cities (getting there for free, obviously!) in order to make my goal of being a comedian.

I think I'll have a lot of fun and meet a few new friends. I'm worried about harsh weather and having men treat me like a whore. You know how it is, if you ignore them, they will call you a bitch.

I don't get offended easily but I've dealt with complete strangers who have blatantly ask me to cheat on my boyfriend, so God knows vagina starved truckers will be even worse!

I guess I'm mostly afraid of being assaulted because I'm so small (5 foot, 100lbs). Gonna keep a pepper spray close! I hope to meet you ladies out on the road!

BTW, invest in a gym membership! I'm gonna work out in multiple cities and use their showers. I don't want to turn into a fat ass!

by: TruckerYitz

yeah get those sneakers cause you wont be able to get that truck anywhere near a gym, or other downtown areas. heck even bobtail are now restricted in many malls and intown.

so you either hike it into town or call a car service.
