Well it's been awhile, yet again, not too much has been going on. Time is flying though and I can't decide if that's a good or bad thing. Over Memorial Day weekend my friend Brittney came to visit. I've known Britt since first grade and it was awesome to have her here visiting. She was also good luck I think, because there were a lot of things I saw while she was here that I've never seen on my own. Such as, the flash mob pictured above. These people came speeding past us on bicycles and then hopped off into this fountain. It was pretty funny and we just stared at them for a few minutes.
I also decided to get rid of my Facebook, Instagram, and twitter for the summer so that I could "unplug." It's been ok so far, just a little boring.
Here's the really important part of this post: I changed my own flat tire the other day! On Wednesday I started my drive to work and after I had gotten onto the highway my car started making a noise which soon got much louder, at this point I realized that I had a flat. So I got off at the next exit drove for a block or two to find a parking spot and got out to look at a completely deflated tire. I had a moment of panic because I've never changed a tire and to be honest my dad never showed me how. I know I saw him do it before and somehow I just figured it out. So I changed the tire and put on my spare and made my way back home. On the plus side I got an extra day off from work and it happened to be the only nice day of the week. I didn't have any extra money or time to get the tire fixed/replaced until today (I've been taking the train to work for a couple of days). So took my car down the street this morning to have it fixed and was dreading how much it was going to cost. Until something amazing happened. I pulled out my card to pay and the guy shook his head and told me that there was no charge this time; to just come back to their shop the next time something happened to my car. I seriously almost started crying because of how nice this guy was. Not to mention that he hasn't patched my tire, but put on a whole new one and filled my spare with more air. Sometimes people being nice here still catches me by surprise. I'm thinking though that I may be in the wrong line of work because in the last couple of weeks I've replaced a headlight bulb, my wipers, and changed a tire. So, when I get back home, if anyone is in need of a mechanic just give me a call ;-)
Hope you're all well and having better luck with your vehicles than I am!
