One of the things I like about the University of Limerick is that it has a big campus. It has an awesome walking bridge over a huge river right in the middle of campus and neat pathways to get from building to building.
However, a downside to having a big campus is that it is about a 15-20 minute walk everywhere. NC State has a big campus as well but over there I was able to cut my travel time to class by using my Razor scooter. Yes the Razor scooter was my thing. So over here I needed to invest in some way to make my travel time shorter.
My teammates told me about a Facebook page called “UL Swap and Sell.” It is a page where students post things they are trying to sell or items they are trying to buy. I logged on and found a post about a bike being sold. I immediately placed a bid on it and a couple days later I received one of the best investments I’ve ever made.
I ride that bike everywhere now and it makes my travel time to class only 3-5 minutes. I ride it to class, to coaching, to practice, to the grocery store and to everywhere in between. It has freed up more time in my day and now I cant remember what life was life without it.
