Walking vs. driving

Reid recently imported his old Xanga entries into his blog, and I’m in the process of reading/skimming all of them in chronological order. Thanks, Reid for adding the previous/next links to the entries at my request. Great job responding to user feedback.

I figured I’d let you all know that’s what I’m up to, so you can understand why this blog may become a bit journalish as I’m influenced by Reid. Hopefully this phase will pass quickly when I finish reading about Reid’s past.

Today, I took my car in for regular maintenance, and to get the passenger door fixed so that it can be opened from the inside again. It hadn’t been working properly since someone smashed my window. I got there at 11, and they told me that the car would probably be ready around 4. I didn’t have a plan for killing time, so I decided to walk back to my apartment since it was less than two miles away. I stopped at Quiznos for lunch, which was nice since I haven’t been there in a while. I was reminded of two things during this errand:

  1. While walking to and from the service center, I realized how nice it is to go for a walk on a nice day. You notice little things like flowers and how much some people take care of their houses.
  2. While driving back to my apartment, I realized how much faster cars are than people.
