I love sticks

I was driving a rental car for the past 2 and a half weeks and I found that I actually really enjoyed the convenience of driving an automatic. I enjoyed being able to multi-task and zone out while driving - driving took minimum effort. My enjoyment reached the point where I started questioning my decision on purchasing a manual car. 

However, the moment I returned the automatic and reunited with my car, the exact moment when I sped off, swiftly shifting gears as I accelerated onto the freeway, my little affair with the automatic became a distant memory. Something about being present while driving and having that extra connection with your car as you drive...I love it. I'm a stick kinda gal and I always will be.
