11:28PM - How to search for Bike Shops

The 1st thing to do, in order to get my (your) bike fixed, is to start looking for bike shops that can fix old Schwinn bikes; then to start the search, & come with questions to ask:  How much would it cost to fix my bike?  What needs fixing?  Would it be better, for me, to buy another bike?  I've also asked, if they need to see my bike, before giving me an estimate & they all said yes; ask as many bike stores as you can, so you'll know who can, & who can't fix older bikes, because this is what I did, & I'm glad, because I found out info, that I wouldn't otherwise.

Since my bike is still in the rafters, & I'm still trying to get it down, even if it's an older bike (1972), I found out that I may have to give in & get a newer bike; I'm thinking of doing that, since I found out that it may be safer for me to get a newer bike, than to fix up my older Schwinn bike; also, it'll help me to get over my fear of riding a different kind of bike, than the 1 I already have. What does this mean?  Well it means I'll be looking at the different bikes, trying them out, then deciding the right 1 for me; this doesn't mean I'm giving up on my old Schwinn bike, it's I'm choosing safety 1st, as well as overcoming my fear on bike riding.

Either way, I'll have to get bike gear/accessories, so I can ride safely; I'll be postin a journal about that here, as well as create a video of what to wear.

10:37PM - My Bike: Why I was afraid of it & why I'm not now

When I was 8 yrs old, I received a Schwinn bike for Christmas; however, I was afraid of it.  I had just learned how to walk, without leg braces, also, learning how to run, jump & play like the other kids; I still rode on my trike & Big Wheel, but wasn't sure about my new bicycle.  But my neighbor, across the street from me, helped me learn how to ride my bike, as well as get over my fear of riding it, even thoug, I wanted to ride my trike & Big Wheel, instead.
When we moved to our 1st house, I began riding it, but rode my friend's horse, more; when we moved to the Central Valley of CA, I couldn't ride my bike anymore, due to very steep hills.  As I went to school, then some college, I got disinterested in  wanting to ride my bike; I did, however, started driving a car, but wanted to try to ride my bike (I was somewhat afraid).
About a couple yrs ago, as I was on Liberty Island, I found more of my Child of the Past (10-12 yr old), riding my bike & overcoming obsticles, such as:  rings, Monkey bars; after I came back home, I started doing research on shops that would do bike repair.  Right now, I'm trying to figure out how to get it down, so I can get the dust off & take it in to a bike shop, to get it fixed so I can ride it, now that I'm no longer afraid of it.

4:42PM - My Trike & Big Wheel: I rode from little tot - early Teen

When I was little, living in a Trailer Park, in Arcata, CA, I started riding my trike; at 1st, it was used as theraphy, to help me walk, then was further used to help me with my walking.  It was red & had it before moving to the Central Valley of CA, due to my theraphy to help me walk; also, the back was used for me to ride it a different way, as theraphy & help me push off, from the back part of my trike.  I loved that trike, since when I had gotten my bike, I was afraid of riding it (will be the next Blog I post); I would ride my trike on the edge of the curbs, then on the driveway, till I learned the rules of the rode, when I was in the 1sty grade.  My 1st grade teacher, Mrs Thurston taught, us kids, the rules of the rode, both on sidewalks & without any; I'm glad she did, because I took it with me & still use them today.

When I was little, I was in the Easter Seal Program, to learn how to walk; my Physical Therapist gave me a Big Wheel, to ride.  It had the same back as my trike, only wider; I was able to ride on curbs, at campsites & to my grandparents house/trailer.  I even took it tom school, when I was in the 1st grade, to learn the rules of the rode; I had fun & also had it till we moved to the Central Valley of California.

11:04PM - Pre-Ear Piercing

Before getting any procedeure done, & this goes especailly for ear piercings, there's some things you should know, & be doing, before getting that procedure/piercingsx done; also, there are things you need to be aware of, before, in this case ear piercings, that might help you, when you do get them done.  The following are helpful hints on what you need to do, so that way, when you do get your ear pierced, your 1 step ahead & are already doing them; I'll also be sharing an AfterCare video, by Claire's, that will help you get started as well as other inportant things you need to be aware of.  Tomorrow, I will be creating a video of even more hints that will help you when you get your ears pierced as well as other neat information to consider.

Some things that you should start doing, before getting your ears pierced:
                            1)  start brushing your hair away from your face- by brushing your hair away from your face, is to get the tiny hairs away from your piercings; you may also want to pull hair long hair back till your piercings heal
                            2)  start wearing perfume down the lower neck, &/or on your wrists, till your piercings heal
                            3)  start wearing button-up shirts- wearing these kinds of shirts won't snag when you put them on, as well as won't have a chance to pull on, nor get close to your new piercings
                           4)  Ladies:  try  not to wear blush, make-up, or power, just till your piercings heal; you may just want to wear eye make-up for awhile
                            5)  Yogis:  try not to do any Yoga that requires you to lie down- so that your ear down't hurt & it's not gonna be painful, just till your piercings heal
                            6)  Try sleeping on your back for the 1st 2 days, then sleep on your back till it feels comfortable for you to sleep on your side (I will explain this better on my Pre-Ear Piercing video)

Here's the AfterCare video, by Claire's, you can take a looke at:
           https://youtu.be/aho58C-Oc-8


Another thing to be aware of is, before getting your ears pierced, try pinching the area, of your ear, so you'll have some idea of thepressure, when you get your piercings (I will explain this in my Pre-Ear Piercing video)
By trying these helpful hints, & watchiong the Claire's video, will help prepare you for what you need to do after you get your piercings; & please remember, it's gonna take time & yopu'll feel better knowing how to do things that come naturally so you don't hurt, or damage your newly pierced ears
