Anonymous asked: Your life makes me happy

Thank you! You’re amazing :)

Today started off cold! My gloves were still wet from the rain last night so my hands froze 5 minutes into my ride and I could have ice skated over the Williamsburg Bridge at 7am (there were actually a couple inches of ice/frozen rain up there). 

I got out of work early and had the best vietnamese spring roll. I gave my college hockey sweater to a chilly homeless man and then I found a dollar on my way home. It looks like things are warming up!

muszeresz asked: hi, do you really work as a bike messenger?

Of course!

I started picking up shifts last summer. In the fall, I almost simultaneously got hired as a personal trainer and went temporarily blind in my left eye and started losing my vision in my right eye. I don’t know why, but I continued to cycle everyday; although 8-hour shifts weren’t viable. My vision is almost back to normal so I’m working with the new Uber messenger service (UberRUSH).

Do you guys see this?!? I’m in a tank top!!
