New Commuting Patterns
Mostly though, I've been grooving to tunes. It's kind of fun to walk through busy urban sidewalks in the middle of morning and evening rush hour while blaring something in your ear to partially drown out the hum of footsteps, chatter, and construction work. (In case you're wondering, my musical tastes run towards the hip-hop of my youth, like Rakim and NWA.)
After rolling my eyes at people bopping obliviously from the earbuds dangling from their heads, I've become one of them. Gasp!
