Thanks for the sympathy guys! On a biblical note, I am currently reading The letters of Peter, which talk a lot about living for God with joy even in times of suffering, which I mean, I'm not really suffering all that much, but it's still applicable! It was kinda funny in a frustrating way when I got home. You see, I have this "Bible-verse-a-day" peel-away calendar that I got for christmas, when I walked up to my room, the verse for the day was Psalm 149:5 "Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing alound upon their beds." And I laughed, and then walked away. I then felt like this might be one of those little challenges you get from God every now and again, and I then actually returned to my room, lied down on the bed, and quietly sang a worship song. To be honest, I didn't really feel like singing, and I didn't feel altogether joyful, but it's important to give thanks to God even when you're not really feeling it, I think.
Also, there is a hilarious co-incidence about my bike being stolen at that time. At some time around 1-4 o clock PM (Western European time), nearly the exact same time my bike was stolen, Lance Armstrong got his stolen as well! And then, do you know what he did? He freaking twittered about it, like I did! Will the comparisons never cease? I sent him a twitter just now telling him of this co-incidence, if he replies back the whole theft thing will almost be worth it! That's just too funny, I think! I almost feel some sort of pride, in a way!
And just to clarify for anyone out there who watches scrubs, I did not steal the idea of naming my bike "Sasha" from JD. As a matter of fact, I stole it from the Heavy Weapons Guy from Team Fortress 2. A Friend of mine brought this up, so I thought I'd just clarify!
