Well I hope the old mantra holds true about riding bikes, because it's been awhile for me. And seeing as how the car is all the way dead, I am determined to save money for a bit by relying on public transport and the hand me down bike that is on it's way next week. I've actually been quite excited for this. Apart from the saving of fundage, I like the idea of simplifying my life. It doesn't see so simple as transport wont be as swifty as before, but it also wont be filled with unnecessary things. I can take time to smell the roses so to speak. I look forward to my commute on trax and the bus and all the reading I will get in. Not to mention the exercise. Oh the exercise! Being more active. I always think about back in the day when people didn't go to the gym because life was exercise in itself. Not that I don't love modern conveniences, but we could have a happy medium. Being more active is good. I think that living in Vegas made me more stagnant. Yes there are plenty of people there who get there exercise and I was one of them: running in over 100 degrees at 6am. Still, I actually like being outside here. So that's a plus.
Only problem with this whole deal is I feel a little like I am giving up my independence. I will relying on others for rides on occasion. If I need to run somewhere during my lunch break....not so convenient. Still, I am ignoring the panic attacks and staying positive. This will be some kind of wonderful. Which is also a good 80's movie.
