Thoroughly excited to say that I am now a tapping public transportation user of Los Angeles and the Greater Los Angeles County. This may seem like a dumb feat for someone who takes the public transportation already but this is a huge deal for me.
Let me explain.
I've never taken the bus to school. Never. I grew up with someone driving me, or walking, or on the occasion riding Diana's scooter. I started driving at the ripe age of 16 and immediately was given a car very graciously by my parents. I drove everywhere all the time. I drove my 92' green Tanker Volvo, the Silver Bullet Honda, and my now precious Night Rider. The most public transportation i ever experienced was while I was abroad. London and Seoul both had very VERY extensive public transportation systems. And who couldn't but fall in love with this after having driven myself for so many years. Somebody got to drive me. I got to sit, read, people watch, listen to music, and merely daydream until my next stop. I simply fell in love with public transportation.
Now when i learned that my work was somewhere on wilshire and robertson... i wondered if i could take the Metro.. but much to my dismay back in november i realized that the Purple Line stopped at Wilshire/Western. Only later did i learn that the 720 bus runs all the way up and down Wilshire... wow i'm starting to realize how newb this post is starting to sound... anyway... after talking to Nathan, I decided that I should give it a try.
and what's the result?
I've fallen in love all over again!
Although i do missing singing at the top of my lungs in the car...
