The change I am going to tell you about is that I bought a bicycle which significantly reduces the time I spend on my commute. My university is a huge one. Although I live right on the campus, it still took me over 40 minutes to walk to and from the teaching building. Considering that I needed to do this at least two times a day, a lot of time was wasted on the road.
Then one day, when I was waiting for my friends at the east gate, I noticed that the communication company had set up a stall by the street with a hoarding saying that as long as you topped up 500 RMB, you would get a foldable bicycle for free. I was attracted. After some consultation and confirmation, I paid the money and got a bicycle in return.
It was a tiny, green one, with the company’s logo on the basket. In fact, you might mistake it as a toy for teenagers, and I had to admit that it was far inferior to those high-end ones. This article is from Laokaoya website. But it was functional, and that was enough. With it, my commuting time decreased from 40 minutes to merely 10 minutes, leaving me more time to sleep, enjoy a decent breakfast, and complete my homework.
I feel pleased and lucky with this change. If I had not seen the stall, I might stick to walking for another year until I could no longer put up with it.
