Default I bought a bike!

I've been thinking about getting a bike for a few months now, but I wanted to wait until the summer was almost over so that the prices would go down. Last night, I went to a police auction and got one for $25! It was so exciting and scary. The auctionner was talking really fast, and I couldn't understand anything. I was afraid that I would wind up accidently bidding too much money, and so I almost didn't bid on anything.

But then I got over it, and I did it! It felt great--I was so anxious, I could feel it in my body, must have burned a ton of calories just from the adrenaline of making the purchase.

Now I just need to get a lock and a helmet, and get it tuned up, and I'll be ready to go! Hopefully the weather will stay nice for a bit longer.
