Hey everyone,
Short update: I finally got my bike back. It's nice to be back on it. Kinda funny how it definitely feels like a bike with 35,000 miles. The loaner they had me on had about 9,000 miles, so it still felt relatively new. Even still, I'm glad to be back on my own bike. I feel cooler :)
Also, I continue to leak rap lyrics out of my brain. It's fun actually, kind of an exercise for your brain. I know the more I force myself to write in that style, the easier it will become.
I'm currently working my second weekend in a row, trying to put more Euros in my pocket to mindlessly spend on the streets of Berlin. I'll work next weekend if I can get away with it. I want to be completely bankrolled. I want to have a roll of Euros so big I need a rubber band mafia style. Speaking of the trip, I went and bought a Rick Steves brand money and passport holder that goes over my neck under my shirt. And I got a European to American outlet adapter.
I'll conclude with a quote from Ayn Rand. I recently rented a documentary about her. Interesting broad.
"Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong."

I like that.
