I got up late Thursday, as I am likely to do later this morning, and had only a few minutes to get to the commons. I went downstairs to the bike room, and my bike wasn’t there. I’ve taken to not locking it inside the building, but it took only a few seconds to realize that I’d left it locked up somewhere else. I quickly went over to the Commons, arriving at 9:31 (closes at 9:30), but Twila is nice, and will let people in a minute or so late (usually). I then went to my 9:45 class, then had to remember where I’d left my bike. After a minute of figuring, I remembered that I’d ridden it to class Weds afternoon, and then walked home (to the dorm) with someone, forgetting all about the bike. I apparently didn’t notice that I didn’t have it when I went back to philosophy, either. I’d wanted to be a bit early, and was reading the text on the way over, so I walked. It’s hard to read while riding a bike–I tried once.
But as I was saying, when I first got my bike, I rode it everywhere, but then I realized that it’s kind of anti-social, and now use it when I’m late, or whatever, but don;t mind leaving it behind to walk with a group. I usually would only do that if I plan to get the bike later, like after Philosophy. Leaving it out overnight is not the best idea, especially because I only have one of the infamous Kryptonite Locks–If I ever get registered, they say they plan to ship free replacements starting in mid-October.
off to bed so I have time to eat breakfast this morning–I think it’s Belgian waffles, but maybe that was yesterday. (It’s so confusing referring to ‘yesterday’ after midnight and before you go to bed.)
