Travelling

I would at this point mention that my bike has another pucture, but it's getting boring now so I won't…

Anyway, the other week (before my bike got the puncture) I got home – knackered as usual – and thought to myself, "I hate cycling to campus…" because it is a fair amount of effort. So I got on thinking of alternatives, the most obvious being walking; it wasn't long before I decided the 1/3 journey time definately made cycling the alternative to walking, not the other way round. Plus my feet always ache, and I really don't like walking…

So that was two ways down. There's no bus service to speak of between my house and campus, so next I thought: driving. This would work, apart from the fact I don't have a car. However, after being stuck in traffic a few times I'd no doubt end up thinking "I hate driving to campus…". The next logical step after that is not driving, but being driven. This, however, is still not perfect. First there's the fact that you really have to work to their schedule, and then there's the leeching…

It was about this point that I came to the conclusing that it's not that I dislike being at home (I don't – it's great) and it's not that I dislike being on campus (I don't – it's great), it's travelling between the two that I don't like. So the perfect form of transport would be some sort of teleportation device or a TARDIS. Unfortunately, due to several problems making frequent use of the word "fiction", this leaves my with either cycling or walking…
