Back in April I was in an accident and totalled my car. Aside from a slightly busted wrist, I came out of it alright. I was given a bunch of money for my car, but instead of buying a new one, I decided the time had come for me to invest in a sweet new bike.

Just after my accident I was in a cast for 8 days until they determined my wrist wasn't broken. At the time I was pretty bummed about this whole accident situation. Now that the cast is off and I have an amazing new bike (that I love like a third pet), I feel like the accident was one of the best things that happened to me and makes me feel hopeful that this year is going to be a very good year. If I hadn't been in that accident I'd still be driving around in a car (that I had been talking about getting rid of for over a year) and I'd still be riding around on my beastly old mountain bike. In all situations, life is what you make of it. In this situation, I made my life more awesome!
