i think that i've decided to stop caring. there are just too many goddamn viewpoints on something so horribly simple that i don't really see the point.
people are horrible. no shit.
i'm gonna keep hauling ass through traffic because i know how to, because i can, because more of you should.
there are others out there like me and if everyone rode like us these streets would be ours. shared properly.
i'm not that young. i'm 27. i'll be scaring the shit out of drivers tomorrow on the way to work.. they should be on bikes anyway.
