Mom, look what I can do!!
Well today after 31 years, I learned how to ride a bike! Amazing that it's taken this long. When I was small, I did have a bike but my Mom wouldn't let me ride it out on the street so I had to ride it in our grassy, hilly yard which is impossible to learn on. Therefore, I never learned. I tried again in Grade 12 but couldn't quite figure it out and I was very nervous. I decided at the beginning of the summer that my goal for this summer was going to be to learn to ride a bike. And I did it! Today at lunch time a girl I work with brought me out on the parking lot of the university and taught me how to ride her bike. Yes, I was wearing a helmet! After not too long, I could go on my own but I'm still having trouble making turns. I'll keep working on that though. I just wanted to share this great news!
