Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

It's an old Muni Meter. You used to put in a quarter and were allowed to park in that spot for 15 minutes

Looks like a Durango or a Grand Cherokee.

The lines and angles aren't there IRL it's not rocket science to parallel park.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

The gif is good for illustrating the concepts. Such as to turn the wheels before you start moving.

Try doing that in Brooklyn....starting off way too far back to make it into the average Brooklyn spot. IME you have to turn your wheel when mirrors are aligned, or even further up...
FTFY

Overall it's a trial and error for the first few times until you get the swing of your car.
