Maybe Now I’ll Ride My Bike More

Confession: my bike has been parked in the exact same spot since August 2010. It’s been locked to a rack outside the place I lived last year (not telling where, in case one of my many, wonderful readers knows how to break a ULock).

I’ve been extremely lazy and have left it there, in the EXACT same spot, for nearly 12 months now. Not that I don’t like biking–it’s very useful and handy sometimes, even enjoyable I bet. It’s just that it mostly scares me, because I’m not very good at it.

I feel like you need to be a very confident and aggressive biker to survive here in Minneapolis–named the best city for bikers in the US this year, it’s definitely not the for the faint of heart.

Also, I refuse to NOT wear a helmet when I ride because that’s just dumb. I spent a lot of tuition dollars investing in my noggin and I want to protect it when I’m wobbling down the street on my violet Huffy. However, I’m also extremely slighty vain and think I look so dorky in my helmet that I can’t bring myself to wear it in public. What does one wear with a helmet anyway? Romper? Jeans and a graphic tee? I can’t pull off the one-leg-rolled-up look like some. Not that all people look dumb on bikes, this is just my personal cross to bear.

So I won’t ridemy bike sans helmet+but I wont flaunt my helmet in public=I can only ride my bike indoors? This, coupled with the fact that MetroTransit in MSP is SO darn handy (slightly sarcastic), means I’ve neglected and avoided my bike for almost a year. I mean, I check on it from time to time to make sure it’s still there–it was, as of about 2 weeks ago. It’ll need new brakes, tires, hell reflectors too probably. Like I said, I’m avoiding it until I really need it (most likely never). Or find someone willing to buy it (takers? It’s cute, kinda).

BUT, that may change now that I discovered this little gem:

Yes, your eyes do not deceive! It is a bicycle mounted wine rack! GENIUS! The clever wino  behind this etsy shop may have given me the motivation to go unlock and *gasp* RIDE my bike for the first time in a year! Now I just need to dig out my helmet and find a suitable outfit… Romper that matches my helmet? Forever 21 anyone?

Chez Moi

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to use these anytime soon as it’ll be several years before I have even a semi-permanent residence…. BUT these are a few ideas I’ve been drooling over lately! They look so simple and adorable, it almost makes me want to settle down now. ALMOST.

 

Best idea for an accent wall I’ve seen yet (oh and the GORGEOUS chandelier ain’t bad either):

In another room, probably my (dream) office, I’d make this idea a reality. Put the world at my fingertips 🙂

Finally, my foyer would feature these rustic (and useful) touches!

FINALLY, this would be my dream roommate:

Guess I’ll have to keep dreaming and collecting ideas until I can actually make them a reality!

Epitome of Organization

This closet is absolutely TO DIE FOR. I may have found my next what-the-hell-do-I-do-with-myself-now hobby.

The color coordination and all the little boxes and shelves make me want to go nuts at Office Max….

Too bad this is a little girl’s closet (I’m pretty sure). I wonder what it would look like re-vamped for a 22-year-old woman?! 😉

Tombstone

I should be so lucky to have a Gatsby quote as my epitaph.

The Voice

I’m SO excited for this show!

I’ve gotten real tired of American Idol (who hasn’t?!). In my opinion, Kelly is the ONLY real Idol.

Currently watching and i think its phenomenal! SO entertaining! Xtina is the ultimate diva. Cee-Lo knows his stuff. Blake’s country strong. Adam Levine is….. yumm.

And WHERE can I get me one of them spinning chairs?! #need

I think this show is gonna be added to my weekly viewing schedule…. (putting it in my outlook as I type this)

What do you guys think? Does the show have staying power??

Also, you must watch the video for the new Maroon 5 song “Never Gonna Leave This Bed”

Swoon-worthy to say the least
