Uhhh what a day! It started off real well. I had plans to make a trip to REI, then to drop off some work at the art gallery and then go to the climbing gym. It started off pretty well, I got to REI and bought some bike accessories. I was in major need of an arm band for my phone since I always take it with me for music while biking, running and climbing. I ended up getting it practically free with a $20 gift card that I received the other day for spending over $100. I needed a new bike rack to take my bike in the woods. The old one I had I lost when I broke up with my ex.
After I went to REI I stopped at the gallery to drop off some art for the spring showing. On the way home I was so excited to go to the rock gym and climb with my new arm band. However, my whole day took a turn when my car started to not change gears on the high way. Along with that there was a bad smell of burning rubber coming form the engine. I pulled off the highway and into the gas station and realized that if I continued to drive my car it would catch on fire. I called a tow truck and sat there for almost two hours before it came and I was able to go home. It really sucks that it happened. My mechanic was closed so I left it in their parking lot so I won’t know until tomorrow what the problem is but I can guess that it is my transmission or something worse. I wasn’t able to get to the gym so my good friend Chris is going to pick me up tomorrow and we’ll go then. Hopefully I can get my car fixed quick so I can go to the gym and take my bike out more.
On a better note the weather in RI has been in the 70’s this week setting a record high in the state. I took the advantage to spend almost all week outdoors, mostlyhiking and trail riding. Also, on another note, many of you may know that I am an artist. I have a bachelor degree in graphic design and you can view my website (www.kaseysmind.com) to see my portfolio.
I have had my art up for the past couple of season in an art gallery called the New Hope Gallery located in Cranston RI. This seasons work has a very “spring” feel to it. If anyone is ever in the area feel free to check it out! Opening night is March 29th so I’ll be sure to post about it the next day!! Hopefully my luck changes with my car situation, I feel like it never ends.
