Bikes are a huge phenomenon on campus and I've always been really against them-- a feeling that harkens way back to when I was just a baby high schooler in a Toyota Rav4, trying so hard not to hit anything on the road. However, living off campus means it's at least a fifteen minute walk from my apartment to class, and if I've slept in (which I am very guilty of) or not finished my homework (I have a lot on my plate, okay?!) then every minute really starts to count. This bike was a hand-me-down from a friend of a friend and I hate to admit it but I love the ease to which I can now wake up ten minutes before class and only be three minutes late instead of fifteen. Also, the faded yellow color feels so California-- a vibe I've basically never associated with myself until recently. Basically, the message of this post is: I'm jumping on a couple of bandwagons. Maybe it's because between improv workshop, midterms, working etc. I have no time to sleep or eat or think properly… or maybe I just really like cruiser bikes and peek-a-boo bras now. What's the world come to?
