Today marks Day 5 of icy/snowy weather and no class. This means that I have had lots of time to get ahead, study for finals, write my papers early rather than procrastinate until the last possible second, and (of course) ensure I have top notch photos for this blog so it can be published on time. Haha. That did not happen. Instead I watched YouTube videos and continuously checked Reddit, read interesting psychology articles that I was going to wait until winter break to read, watched TV, visited my older brother (today is his birthday), wrote one page for one paper, and am only getting to the blog a day late.

But, most importantly, I got a bike! Yay! Christmas came early and my wonderful boyfriend has given me my dream bicycle that I have been wishing for since I was still in high school. So that means you will get to see some of the photos from the building process (one piece is a little wonky so I will have to get that fixed before it can be truly finished).

 Daniel building my bike with my roommate's bike in the background. (Sorry for the low picture quality, I used my phone. And excuse the mess, we should pretend that is because I have been snowed in for 5 days and not that it is always this messy...)

 My nearly finished bicycle. All it is missing is the wonky front fender, the bell, the front light, and straightening out the front wheel/handlebars.

Here is an older photo of Daniel and me. Mostly to show how cool we are, since he was the one that bought me the bike, but also because I needed more photos for the post... 

And last but not least, I am wearing a shirt from Goodwill! I imagined that I would take a cute photo in the snow, but today everything was melting and it was not super pretty outside. Again, sorry for the quality, my webcam is about as good as (maybe slightly better than?) my phone's camera.

See you next week!
