today i crashed on my bike

Thursday, April 19

     TWICE. I'm good at bike riding, I swear. I have pretty good balance. What I am not good at is manuevering around things, I think I just panic. So today I was biking to Hunter's after class, and someone had left a giant garbage bin on the sidewalk. I said to myself, "Ok Priya, let's slip in between the bin and the drop-off next to the sidewalk. " I dismounted but still had my legs around my bike, and tried to carefully steer around the bin, next thing I know my bike topples over and I go careening down a hill into someone's yard, falling flat on my face. I even stopped a nice concerned man in his car, but I just waved him away.
     On my way back, I was riding up a hill and stopped to try and get my phone out to call a friend (I frequently multi-task while riding my bike). Once again my bike swerved, fell over, and subsquently so did I, falling down the hill and into a fence.
     And these were both before Zumba! Now I feel really worn out, banged up, and I have a fat knee.
     So I leave you with this! I love Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Blue Ivy (although why WHY couldn't she have been Ivy Blue? Way better)! This made seriously lol. Thanks to Shel for the recommendation.
