So I realized as I started writing this blog that it really feels good to get your thoughts and daily experiences down on "paper". Really it's obviously not the paper that does the mind good, but the process of laying down your thoughts into an easily digestible format of words, sentences, and eventually paragraphs.

Wow, I got all philosophical and stuff there. Interesting.

Anyway, I got moved in here at Union on Saturday afternoon. "Moving in" consisted of grabbing my bags and bikes, throwing them into a corner of the room, then walking into town to get pizza. I would say it was a success.

Today was also a great success, with my first bit of riding/training for the week going in on the trainer. Me and Zach Winn, my canadian friend from school, set up our trainers next to the TV so that we could compete in a heated match of Downhill Domination. For those of you that don't know, Downhill Domination is the best mountain bike game to be released ever. Even though it is highly unrealistic, with your character going of 500 foot cliffs, bunnyhopping over trucks, and riding through lava floes, it really is the closest thing to real mountain biking you can do on a video game. Definitely not a good substitute for the real thing, but it will get you by when there are dangerous patches of ice and snow on the road and you're a pansy. I will always feel like a pansy when I see the conditions J-Stamp has to ride in sometimes. I don't think I could take it.

As a plus, we used old textbooks for wheel-leveling blocks. Perfect. I didn't like spanish anyway, and it only cost me 3 dollars. Heckova lot cheaper than most commercial ones you find.

Good night bloggers.
