Pierced!

So....I just pierced my own ears.....kinda. Well, I had gotten them pierced a few years back, but they closed up so I decided to re-open them today!

I got some piercing earrings for free from the ladies that work at the jewelry store that I visit often, I guess they like me or something....so when I got home today I just decided to go for it.

I pierced the right one first, and it didn't hurt too bad, just a little rough and it burned a bit. But when I got to the left ear, I could actually feel the crunch of it piercing through my scar tissue from the previous piercing. It burned a bit more, but all in all it wasn't too terrible. I'd probably do it again.

Commuting by Bicycle

Well, I've decided to sell my car and switch to a bicycle as my main mode of transport. I'm very excited and eager to get started...I've even been watching youtube videos about properly riding with traffic. I wasn't really planning on making the switch this quickly but I figured now is just as good of a time as any, might as well go for it!

Plus, the best part was, of course, shopping for a bike! I chose a globe bike as the one for me because it seemed the best for commuting around Portland, my home town, and for running errands during the day. I've uploaded a picture of it below:
