Due to the cost of parking, the lack of parking, and the close proximity of school to home, I made the idealistic decision to bike to school.
Today, I biked the route to school and nearly died.
Oops, got lost.
Tires not actually filled, despite several attempts.
Feeling more out of breath than when I run up hills, much bigger hills.
Sweat so profuse I was too embarrassed to walk into the employment office to fill out some paperwork. (It was paperwork enough to line my entire way back home, I believe.)
It took me an hour to work up the courage to bike home.
And then, as if the whole incident were a story about a bad day, it rained.
