Either way, congrats!

i learnt in a manual, so im used to it.. autos are easy to drive for me, cause ive learnt in a stick.. i would choose a stick over an auto, just cause they are more fun to drive..

Even if you don't want to drive a manual it would be a valuable skill to pick up to learn how to drive one anyway. There's been several times when my friend asks me to drive his/her car because she's too intoxicated or for whatever reason and it seems every time that happens they are driving a manual vehicle. So it definitely pays to know how to drive one at least.

I like automatic transmissions personally, growing up on a farm I had to learn to drive stick shifts because all our trucks were sticks....they aren't too hard to learn to drive, it just takes a little time to get used to the clutch.

I also never understood why road systems are so different in the US and the UK, I don't think I could never get used to the steering wheel being on the other side of the car...I'd have a mild heart attack everytime I met a car lol
