But sometimes I wish I was
We just moved to a new house and were without internet, cable or phone for a few weeks. But now that I'm back I got a lot of catching up to do. I quit my job at the metal shop and I now have a pretty decent one. from 10:00am till around 1:00pm I help mentally challenged people gain some basic mechanical knowledge and skills by helping them wrench on old bikes, then from 1:00 till 5:30 I work in a different part of the shop as a mechanic. The money is a lot less, but the job is a lot more enjoyable. I built up a new mountain bike as well which I'll post pictures of later.
I also sold my Bronco to fund my WRX and I'm riding everywhere now, I pulled down 36km yesterday on my MTB and 49 on my BMX a few days ago. The fixed gear is still down as I need to find a proper lever for a bullhorn handlebar so commuting on that is out of the question.
I also took quite a fall on the weekend, I was on a friends dirtbike coming up on 80km/hr when a deer jumped out in front of me. I ended up swerving and hitting a bump, it's all kinda blurry from there on in, I broke my helmet resulting in a concussion and dislocated my knee along with getting some cool looking flesh wounds on my leg. I also hurt my hip, again, so I'm going in to get that all x-rayed in a few days. The bike is fine other then a scratch on one of the plastics.
All in all the last two weeks haven't been to bad, other then it's currently 31*C in the house, and 37*C outside. Did I miss any updates or big news?
