Boy-oh-boy do I feel sad.
Intitally my intentions were to travel long-distances via plane, but now I'm kinda thinking I should save up for a really good bike. I've been checking out this bike shop, and I talked to the guy who runs it and he said he'd hook me up with a really legit 3-4 month lay-away plan. That'd be really nice.
I wanna get to the point where I can ride to Los Angeles and the beach. LA is like 30-40 miles from here. One way, it can be done, on a good bike. The beach is like 20 miles. I wanna eat miles of land!
I just want to sweat and thrust and force all this stagnation away. I got a bike right now, but it can't handle jumping curbs and what-not. It's a girl's Huffy bike, so you know the deal there. My friend is letting me borrow it.
I love to explore. It's my favorite method of spending time. When your eyes are feasting and your senses are feeling and your imagination is totally stimulated. And this is quite the land I live in, this Southern California region, these OC/LA counties.
On a bike, you can cruise gang neighborhoods, rich neighborhoods, shopping centers, mountains, forests, busy fucked-up streets and sidewalks, ALLEYWAYS!
I was totally in love with this one girl Jessica LAST YEAR and she always talked about how hardcore she loved bikes and how bike messangers make her heart pound. It's funny 'cause now I can totally see her point and actually want to aspire to that, not necessarily to be a bike messanger, but to ride hardcore on urban streets, with cars and shit, fighting traffic and getting rugged.
It makes me happy just thinking about it!
So yo, I guess it's obvious what I need to do. Next paycheck, we 'bout to get this lay-away started.
