I'm Officially a Driver...well almost

I just got my learner's permit yesterday. Yay for me!!! So now I can LEGALLY learn how to drive. Ive been practicing for the longest and Im already prepared to take my road test. Hell, I should just take it tomorrow. Well I'll give it 2 weeks then take it. Better to be prepared right? No need to rush it.
The only thing I don't like about having my permit is my picture. I made the biggest mistake. When I was leaving the house it just completely slipped my mind that I have to take a photo for my permit, otherwise I would have re thought about the hijab I wore. I had on a white underscarf, with a black shayla. Something similar to the picture but without the designs:

Now Im not saying that its bad to wear that combination, it looks pretty chic. But when you have a big head like me, white just makes it look a lot bigger and on camera it just magnifies it even more. So you could only imagine what my photo looks like. My head takes up the whole space.

Now Im wondering if I could retake it, hmm...........

I really love your blog ma shaa Allah, it is so pretty. How did you upload that photo? When I try to do it, it is so small and looks dumb lol.

About the photo, I say leave it. My photo on my passport is really bad, I was exhausted when they took it so I look depressed and oppressed lol, but my husband loves it. He says I should not look beautiful on the photos anyway cuz foreign men might see it lol. So change your intention for the sake of Allah and voila! No need to get new photo or care if it bad lol :)

Thank for the lovely comments everyone. It does feel so good to actually be able to drive. Ahh such a great feeling. Now I just need to learn how to get around. Of course I know how to get to the Walmart and the mall-lol.
Umm Travis: I got the photo off of flickr and when you upload a photo from there and what you do is just click on the link above the picture that says all sizes, and just download the size you want, either small, medium, large, and just copy and paste the url. Im bad at explaining things, so I hope you understood that if not, just say the word.
