Matthew 22:37-39 "And He said to him, 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself...'"

Congratulations! I've been driving stick for a couple years and it's fantastic...

After you get into driving stick, automatic just plain is never the same.

A few things: the best way to learn the clutch is to use it, a lot. Find somewhere safe (ie. abandoned parking lot) and have at it. Since you already know how to "drive" the main thing is getting used to shifting. Also, this will come with time, but Neutral is your best friend... going down a hill? Neutral. Got good momentum and just need to coast for a bit? Neutral. It's one of the best parts about driving stick: you're in control of your gas consumption in a way automatic can't even touch.

All that being said... enjoy!
