Carless

While I wait for the police report regarding my car accident to surface, I’m left with a huge first world problem: I’m without wheels!

How am I supposed to go to work?

How am I supposed to go the grocery store?

How am I supposed to function???

ARGHHH.

A week or so ago, I walked into the apartment office and a friend asked me why I wasn’t riding my bike to work. I looked at him like:

I’m not lying when I say my mountain bike was nothing more than a living room ornament. I was really happy to remove it from my living room and actually ride it. The tires needed a little bit of air, but for the most part it got me from my house to my office. Success! I missed riding my bike and the added physical activity is really nice. I’ll need some wheels soon but for now biking to work has been wonderful!

PS - Send some good vibes my way that this gets sorted out quick! I don’t know if I can bike from N Austin to downtown! :/

South By Southwest (SXSW), one of the biggest reasons I moved to Austin, TX came, rocked the hell out of our city, and then left in the blink of an eye. I am now in the post festival hangover stage with all the “Great seeing at SXSW!” emails pouring into my inbox from vendors I sold my email address to in order to partake in their free libations at several of the parties I attended. The word RSVP was king in the weeks leading up to SXSW, and I spent many hours pouring over many events competing for my calendar’s attention. There were some events you were put on the dreaded “Wait List” (damn you Illmore) and others you didn’t really know what it was all about to begin with, but still responded to. I had 8 days off from work, I went into SXSW prepared for the worst and hoping for the best.
