I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately. Quite frankly, the last few weeks have been majorly sucking for me, and I just haven't had the motivation to update this. In a nutshell, 8 months of planning & savings was suddenly wiped out the other week due to circumstances beyond my control, and I'm still incredibly frustrated over it. On top of that, I have some other professional issues to resolve, and I'm not quite sure how to go about it. Vague enough for you? Okay.
Oh, and I might not be able to take advantage of my "Weekend on the Canal" package I won at Bike Fest's silent auction this weekend due to scheduling conflicts. So that's kinda bumming me out. But there's still a slight chance that I can.
On the bright side, it turns out I might be able to participate in the 50 States Ride after all! (Which is another reason which makes me thinking this "emergency" is a whole lot of smoke being blown around but that's another rant that I will never, ever post here). I'm not 100% sure yet, since I would still need to take leave; I burned a bunch of leave on my Vacation That Never Happened and am not sure whether I can spare it/obtain it. But at least its a possibility.
The biggest reason I am posting tonight is because that pesky sentencing hearing is tomorrow morning. Yes, I know this is short notice (although its really not, because its been on my blog for awhile). To be perfectly honest, I just want to put this whole thing behind me. I'm tired of dealing with it. I need to write my victim impact statement tonight, and I'm procrastinating like crazy. I really just don't want to talk about this anymore. I don't want to be that Girl That Got Assaulted on Her Bike. I just want to be that Girl on a Bicycle again. I know, whaaa, whaaa, whaa, woe is me. Sorry. I'm just being honest here.
Anyway, it's going to be around 9:30am-ish, at 500 Indiana Ave. NW, 3rd Floor. You can get the exact courtroom by stopping by the Information Desk on the lobby level and giving the defendant's name: Darryl Harrison, or docket number
