My life has gotten into a nice routine where the annual events I’m looking forward to in the summer are expected and are combining with the rarer events (BRMC tour/new album) to make for an extremely busy year. I’m going to attend Anime Expo and Evo again this year in July, all the BRMC shows in California (late April and early June) and the one in Las Vegas (late May). The way the California and Las Vegas shows are split up could probably end up with a lot more road travel than usual.
I also recently got a very awesome Alice + Olivia bike from the Nieman Marcus + Target collection and I will attempt to ride it soon. This will only be around the neighborhood for occasional exercise, but I am excited to finally have a bike after many years of not riding one. My very first bike was a Strawberry Shortcake bike with training wheels and a white basket in front. My new bike also has a basket, but it’s also very tall and super cute and colorful. The tall part worries me because I’m not tall and I haven’t ridden a bike in years.
The white tires also worry me because they would get dirty pretty easily, but I guess there’s not point in switching them out. I found a great deal on a dual suspension 21 speed bike for my boyfriend and so we will be enjoying some rides together around my neighborhood soon. Even at 70% off the original $500 price of my bike, his was still half the price of mine. Though the great deal was 47% off through Amazon which is why I was so eager to get it.
Other plans for 2013: eat better, exercise more, read more, learn more, and the usual stuff. If you are interested in seeing my 2012 Year in Blogging, here’s the link: http://jetpack.me/annual-report/22760253/2012/
