Yay, probably have a new apartment!
I should be signing a lease this afternoon. And I'll have a 1 bedroom / 1 bathroom, instead of a studio, which means I'll have a sleeping area that's separate from my living area, so I can invite people over! And I get a balcony. Plus, I'll be paying about $75 less per month. The only downside: Work is probably 15-25 minutes away by bike, slightly more than my current apartment.

But I'm still within a mile of a caltrain station (San Antonio) and now I'm closer to Safeway and Walmart and Sears and a whole set of shops in the area. Plus, I'll be closer to Mountain view, so biking there isn't as much of a pain.

Also, I managed to replace my caged bearings with loose bearings for my front axle. Thus far, it seems to have been an improvement. But I had to install 12 bearings, instead of the 9 or 11 that I was told I was going to have to use. (Should have been 9, I think... I read it should be number of bearings in cage(7) + 2). Need to find time to talk to the bike shop guys. :(

Yay! Glad it worked out after all. Blessing in disguise much? :-)

Sounds amazing! Your living conditions sound like my ideal.

yay. forced workout.

And since that turns the downside to a good thing, the new apartment is overall better. Congrats!

Meh. I dunno. +(10-20) minutes 5 days every week is nearly an extra hour of biking that I'll lose from other, better things... There's only slightly more advantages. I don't know. I guess it all kinda balances out.
