Life is about as new and unexpected as it has ever been for me.
I have [most likely] no educational goals left.
As it stands, I head towards being an artist. And as that stands, it's about unstable as a wine glass in the back of a pick up truck driving down Durkee Road in my hometown. yes.
I've made some major life changes and decisions. Some of which I said I'd never do. On her 21st birthday, my sister and I got tattoos together of our grandmother's handwriting. A few days previous to that, I bought a bike.
Getting a bike has been the best decision of 2012.
It's the ultimate freedom that I don't think I have ever experienced. When I was a kid, I'd spend so many minutes of the summer on my bike. However, it was different; I had a very short leash, since my mom was the over protective type. Buying a bike now hasn't been a source of entertainment, though it's now one of my favorite things to do - it was like buying my next car. I sold my car last year, and have been relying on public transit ever since. Talk about a short leash! Nothing but absolute frustration and anger, surrounding every trip. Matilda (as I've decided to name my Schwinn road bike) has become a permanent installation in my life, I feel an ultimate sense of freedom. When I am on her, cruising down the street, I feel like I'm flying. I'd like to go forever. To be able to jump on her, and go anywhere - fast...Matilda has come at the perfect time. It's a freedom I really needed right now.
