I rode my bike to school today. It is a BEAUTIFUL day in Chicago (72 and sunny, not a cloud in the sky!!!), and I know the crappy winter weather is fast approaching, so I had to take advantage. I only have 1 class on Thursdays, and it's at 1:00, so a noon bike ride is perfect. I live about 5.5 miles from school, but I can take the lake shore bike path and get to school in about 35 minutes (actually about 5 minutes faster than the stupid bus).
I got to school and was locking my bike up when my friend came out and took one look at me and said "oh I love your new bike!"
"Did you bring another shirt to change into?"
p.s. - no. I didn't. I'm sitting in class in my own filth.
