This fall is going to be interesting…
The schedule for my job with UITS came out over the weekend, which has me working at Briscoe, McNutt, Foster and the Information Commons. While this is great where my working life is concerned, it’s horrible for my academic life. I have classes at Ballantine Hall and in Swain East. They are on the opposite side of campus. For those of you that don’t know, the IU campus is quite large.
To make matters worse, on two of those days I will get out of work 15 minutes before my class starts.
To try to expedite my travel I’m currently working on solutions to get my bike on campus. With my bike on campus, I think I can cut down the travel time significantly. Since I live a good trek away, biking to campus isn’t really an option. I’ve got some options to figure out. I’m going to either leave my bike on campus during the week and take it home on the weekend, or take it with me each day. I’m going to test whether my bike will fit in our car tonight, if not we’ll have to order $300 worth of gear ( a hitch and hitch mounted bike rack).
I haven’t seriously rode my bike in about 10 years, which invokes something else, a more active lifestyle. I’m sure I’ll be really sore for the first couple of weeks, but after that I’ll in much better shape. Something I need to do.
I also need these items:
I’ve got my eye on particular ones, but I’m still trying to find the best item for the price.
I had thought about these last minute things coming up, I just never realized it would be so exhaustive and expensive.
