I am taking small business classes through the Entrepreneurial Training Program at the Small Business Development Center and really enjoying them. Twice a week, I am reminded how much I love being a student – although a lazy one who prefers to drive to class and park in the Grainger lot for $5. I’ve ridden my bike a few times to be frugal, but its getting cold out at night here! So, reluctantly this week I drove both on Tuesday and Thursday, resigning myself to the fact that I am wimpy enough that I’ll pay $10 to avoid riding a mere 8 miles in the cold wind. But alas – both nights I got free parking! The first night I found a street spot and the second night the attendant was having some difficulty with her computer and just let me sneak through. I guess it pays to be lazy afterall.
In addition to two nights of free parking, I am also grateful for being able to drive around a while in today’s gloomy weather, listening to music that matched the weather, and feeling happy (even if it was a slightly sedated happiness.)
