People ask me how I can go yo work, bartend all night then bike home.
First answer is that it is actually a great stress reliever. I just got out of a bartending shift where I worked from 2 to 1030 and I got my ass kicked, it was so busy the whole time I was in the weeds. And the nice bike ride home in the cool night air was a reset for my emotions. And when I pushed up the hill to my house I pushed out all that bad juju from the rough night.
Second, I take that money that I save from not having a car and I live in the dope wealthy neighborhood of bouldin creek, a mile and a half from where I work downtown.
