I'm now trying to sell the old bike. I posted it on Craigslist last night for 125$ (Originally paid 200$ plus shipping). The first offer was for 100$ but since I didn't specify "or best offer" I put that one on the back burner. The next one never returned my response and I haven't gotten any other offers since. I tried to contact the first one again but no answer on the phone. It's starting to look like I may find myself stuck with the bike at this rate.
I've had a good time in Boston. On the other hand I've been trying to juggle seeing the city, going to Anime Boston, and doing the freelance project yet have failed miseribly at all. I got to meet Spurty from GameHavoc, his family, someone from OkCupid, and a CouchSurfing host; all of which have been absolutely great people and I'm glad I got to meet all of them.
The last downside is I'll be leaving with a sore throat and a bit of a runny nose. It's not too bad and those are the only symptoms, but once again I feel like a pariah. Bleh.
