I’m sitting in the Aero/Astro library, and I just finished typing my column for this week. It’s a rant about how people don’t know how to ride bikes safely here. I hate using my column for rants, but I feel like this one is vaguely justified. It sucks having to fear for life and limb while riding to class.
I like this place, the A/A library. It feels homey, not unlike the study lounge back at Tech, but better. We have carpet in here, even if it is hideously red, and there’s a rooftop terrace right outside. There are always people in here doing homework and writing email and doing crossword puzzles. It’s comfortable here. I have started to spend most of my free time during the day in here, and it makes me happy to be around my fellow students. Weird, eh?

And so my ordeal begins again.
