    Congrats, its the best decision I think I have ever made. There isn't a day I don't actually look forward to going to work, and sometimes yeah its a drag fixing Magna's and Huffies but it sure beats just about any other job I could possibly have at this point in my life. I would kill myself if I was working in cafeteria service or as a grader like half the school does here!

    A Teacher once told me....

    that once i got a job in my filed of study (Psychology) that things would very soon look quite different. All those people who popped off in class about how this was or that was would very soon look a little nieve; well intentioned and poorly informed.
    I worked in a Psychiatric Hospital for almost 10 years and I was invited back to the University to lecture, and interact with the students.
    He was right.

    Where did San Felasco come into this? I'm confused, lol.

    Anyway, the shop isn't in Gainesville, it's in Melbourne for the summer while I am home from school, at Bobs Bicycles. If you want some Gainesville bike shop spam Mr Goodbike is my favorite.
