I finally got a WA state license. I had been putting it off but figured since I've been married for over a year now that having a license with my married name would be nice. Actually, I had to get one cause my MA one is expiring in a few days. I had been dreading the whole process...who likes to spend a better part of their day at the registry?
I started off by going to the wrong office. Oops! The ladies were nice and gave me some options on where I could go. I went to the one where they said the people are nicer. Who doesn't like nice people? I headed up there and managed to find it with no difficulties. I walked it and it was just about empty. I waited for 3 minutes for my number to be called. I went up and was able to get a WA license in my married name. Nice. It was super easy. The only sad part for me is that I failed the eye exam without my glasses. I've managed to pass it the last 3 times without them. I couldn't this time so now I must wear my glasses to drive. Considering I've had glasses since 5th grade and I've been driving for 15 years, that's not bad.
I'll admit I was a little sad when he put a hole in my MA license. It just seems so final. I know I don't live there anymore but man, I loved that license. It was a link back home. And the picture wasn't too bad. My mom always laughs at it cause I'm wearing a red fuzzy scarf in it.
