i may have had the best day ever yesterday.

i got to go to work (not the most ideal thing, but we all know i like to work!), and not screw it up.
i got to ride with erik and theta (it rained for 10 minutes and I got a flat, but it was great).
i got to have dinner at theta and watch '08 men's race tape (good food and good company and good racin).
i got to go back home and found out that hazel procured all of the race footage/highlights from the Delta Chi dynasty back in the 70s/80s and so we watched all that.
i got to talk to my faja.

i think it was a winning day.
and today will be even better.

work till 2:30;
team pursuit at the track the rest of the evening!

Sometimes my life feels like an endless string of scheduling conflicts and wondering how i could possibly squeeze in another shift of work without driving myself and everyone around me into absolute insanity. I want one job. I want free time. I want to ride my bike. I want to sleep in one day a week. I want to sit at a computer and edit photos and get someone to pay me for them. I want to be the supportive girl who makes it to every race. I want to feel like I'm living every day, REALLY living, but not worry about whether or not I'm over-working enough to make rent.

I'm going to find a way to make the concept of an endless summer a very real possibilty.

I am.

Enough of this "my life is going to be great" and more of the "my life is great." I just thought of listing out the things that i would have in an ideal world, but instead I know that, really, everything I have is ideal.

you know how you know it's 12noon on friday? the tornado siren goes off at exactly noon every friday. it's comforting.

spent my morning reading "it's not about the bike" because it is so good. makes me want to ride my bike. and anything that makes me want to ride my bike is a good thing.

some goodness from the track before/during spring break...

A few from L5 Qualifications....
Kelsey (aka little phillips) of Delta Gamma:

Zeta Beta Tau's rallying cry of "QUAL...QUAL...QUAL..." and their chainsmoking fans lead to much discussion among everyone, haha:

As part of the Cutters' entourage, a select few:


i'll edit later to include more.
