    I miss the freedom to break myself

    I am a pretty ungrateful person generally because my life is good, I think its good and considering my previous situation I'd say I'm very lucky really.

    if you don't have the freedom over your own life how much freedom do you really have?

    Got my driving license back today.

    They have given me a 1-year license. Before I was given 3-year license, but obviously something has changed. I don't have a car anyway, but I was considering one in the future. If they just revoked my license I believe I could qualify for a discretionary freedom pass which would be useful.
