new day, old bike, new to me

day 1 of learning how to ride a bike. yes, you heard it here: sarah is
finally going to learn how to ride a bike at age 26. probably a good
idea since my supervisor hopes that i will be able to lead mountain
biking trips this summer. hehe. first JF replaced the gear cables and
the balloons inside the wheels. then my heroic roommate LW took me to
riverside park just before sundown for some lessons. i know soon i will
be able to do it. but right now - it's just really tough! i am a big
wimp and, i'll just say it, it hurts my crotch! i look forward to the
day that i can finally do it. i shall be patient, however. i think i
can do it.

chan chandler is going to give me a bad name

uh oh. who knew there was a guy named <<a
chandler<</a> A pastor in North Carolina said of him the following:
<<blockquote> <fontfamily><param>Arial</param>Members of the
congregation said Chandler told them during last year's presidential
campaign that anyone who planned to vote for Democratic nominee John
Kerry needed to leave the church.</fontfamily><</blockquote>

recycle your electronics!!

am super psyched about this. we need more awareness and action on this issue; it is so ridiculous how some people obsess over recycling cans or paper, but don't think twice about trashing batteries or televisions.

just got this post on the koe email list:

Electronics Recycling Drive, St. John the Divine @ 112/113 & Amsterdam, Thurs. May 12, 3-8PM. Taking PCs, TVs, VCRs, fax machines, cell phones, pagers. NOT taking stereo equip., radios, cameras & small appliances. For more information, please call 212-865-9595.

photo post test

so i saw this new feature that lets me post to my blog via email. i'm testing it with text and a photo. it's my latest friendster photo. i think it's from this past fall sometime. great hair day right? crap i don't know how to make it smaller...

clean sleep

i actually feel like i'm staying at someone else's apt. not the gross apts with mismatched couches that i have had the pleasure of crashing on, more like somone who has a clean apt. just anyone.

5 megillot final in 9.5 hours or so. my final final!
excited for a big day - lunch with my bro, my favorite (ef), plus je and lw who are always fab to be with. did i just use the word fab?
then 5pm interview for camp ramah job as stated in earlier post. then dinner with cousin ag and maybe even bz, followed by concert in east village with cr!!

nyc is cool. always things to do. why was i ever thinking of leaving? it's all here really.

shiny floors

it's a miracle. my room is clean. my clothes are clean. my alarm clock is plugged in and set! no more cellphone for my alarm. my modem and router are neatly on top of my deak. this time really i'm going to make it happen. and craziest of all, my laptop is plugged in and set up at MY DESK - not just by the couch in the living room. seriously i am a real person again. how come i had to wait till the end of the semester to become a real person, huh?

hopefully the fact that i scrubbed the floor on my hands and knees will keep me from waking up with a sore throat from all the dustiness.

AND I HAVE A WORKING PRINTER. it's only been about 10 months or so since i bothered to replace the cartridge. i am invincible! now i can do anything. i really think so.

now i just have to go through the 9 boxes and 3 shelves of random shit, throw stuff out, file stuff, put in binders...make some real decisions! oh yeah and probably give away some clothing. so hard! must stay strong. i can do it!!

must help bz think of clever blog title. minutes from crawling into super clean bed...

sarah washes and folds!

after being inspired at wc's apt last week, i have decided to do my own laundry. after months of not feeling that i had an extra 2 hours in the day, i think it is time. also it will be too expensive for me to wash my comforter at the cleaners', so i may as well take some other laundry along with it.

really what i need to do is get rid of some clothing. on the one hand, if there are things i haven't worn in over a year, i should get rid of them. on the other, many belong in a 'new york sarah' category - perhaps i will need them again one day should i end up in an office.

must sort. must mimimize. strive to be more like wc and ab. without curling hair...
