I bought a bike a couple of weeks ago and it is NOTHING like it was when I was a kid. I remember my wonderful blue bike I had from like grade 4 all the way up through high school and I rode that thing everywhere when I was young. (I actually pulled it out of my moms garage last summer but it was so rusted the pedals wouldn’t work)

Anyways, as I was saying, I literally rode my bike everywhere, just jumped on, never wore a helmet, never understood what the silly gears did, just rode. Well let me tell you, I’m glad I have since figured out the silly gears because if I didn’t, I don’t think I would be writing this right now, I would be somewhere passed out on the side of the road.

SERIOUSLY! Bike riding is a killer workout! I punched it into this little calculator and at my weight and height walking at a brisk pace for an hour burns like 345 calories or something and bike riding for an hour at the lowest speed burns over 950!!! ITS CRAZY!! And well lets just say the amount I sweat while riding the calories better be dripping out of me.

Today I built a dresser! Completely on my own!! Which may I just say is a pretty big deal because according to the drawings I was supposed to do it with a partner. There was even a picture showing one man doing it on his own with a big X through it lol. There was something like 22 steps which was really more like 40 because you had to do so many of them 4 times (4 drawers) but I’m just proud so I wanted to share.

And I really wouldn’t have been able to do any of it without the wonderful tool kit thingy my mother bought me! She gave it to me and told me it will last a lifetime if I just take care of it. Well 1 job down! What’s next on my list???
