2011: The year of the Bus

Hahaha I know I know, I'm a dork with the title, but I can't help but be overjoyed that I now have FREEDOM!!!! Well, sort of at least. :P I bought a bus pass yesterday so I can make my way around without bugging my sis every ten seconds to use the car! It was one hundred bucks, but it will pay for itself in no time. It's a "college pass" so I now have unlimited rides on the bus until May 31st!! Isn't that rad?!?! I mean trust me, I would love to have the freedom of having my own car, but right now that just isn't possible. So instead, I'm going to ride the bus as much as I can, to where ever I need to go.
So I started my adventure today after I got done at work. I took the bus from my house to uptown. I walked a couple blocks to a local coffee shop on Hennepin (Spyhouse: if ya haven't been there, make it a priority coffee shop to go to!). I worked on my Psychology homework for a couple hours at the "coffee bar" they have. I started to get a little side tracked, so I asked the lady working if there was a library near by.
Of course there was! haha I walked about 6 blocks south on Hennepin to the Walker Hennepin Co library. I stopped in at a computer store on the way to find out about getting iWork for my laptop. I was excited to hear I can buy it on itunes for 50 bucks cheaper! BOOYAH.
I studied at the library for a while and then went across the street for a quick sub. Now, I'm sitting at the sbux close by my house (I took the bus back over to my digs). Needless to say, I'm dorking out about the bus now. It's super convenient, I just have to search for routes and stuff online until I get the hang of it. I'm also really excited to become a lot more knowledgable on the Minneapolis area.
I'm looking forward to "forced down time" as Lisa calls it :P The stupid picture above is of me with my awesome bus pass :P (oh yeah those are my new specs too! I got them in the mail yesterday!)

Anyway, I'm done ranting about my exciting news. Until next time peeps.
