So despite my best efforts to avoid popular trends (I never had a bull-cut, M.C. Hammer pants, or a slap bracelet), I've decided the idea of posting blogs online is actually quite practical for several reasons. 1st off, I don't have any actual friends to tell things to, so by posting stories about my life on here, I can at least pretend someone is listening... 2nd I figure enough weird /funny/odd things happen to me in a day that why not share them. I always thought my life would make a good novel, I've just never been too sure of what kind it would be. Something between a comedy, an inspirational sports flick (just wait, if Rudy can play for Notre Dame why can't I someday ride for Quick-Step (Watch out Boonen)), or a romantic tragedy (emphasis on tragedy). Either way its bound to be a best seller. 3rd and finally, now that I am in Grad school, I've actually got quite a bit more time on my hands. After spending the first 2 weeks of the school year watching every You-Tube video I could find on bicycle messengers I decided I needed a new hobby. So here it is in all it's glory.
