Bucket List #42. Learn to ride a motorcycle (scrambler/ scooter)
I finally did it!
Signed up at a motorcycle academy and off I went to learn how to ride an actual MOTORCYCLE! Started on a scooter, now I’m here… I made a vlog where I ramble on and on about my experience so instead of rambling on the blog as well, watch it here:

Anyway, the little accident happened on Saturday, and my shoulder was still in a heap of pain, so I finally, after almost four days, decided to go and see a doctor. He was concerned that there was still swelling and was worried that I may have torn or dislocated my shoulder bits. So he sent me for X-rays.
I immediately headed to the Radiology rooms and strained my shoulder getting some of the X-rays taken so that we were able to establish the problem. A couple hours later the doctor called me with my results.
Good news and bad news, as he said as an opening line…Good news is, I did not tear or dislocate my shoulder; Bad news is that they’ve discovered somewhat of an abnormality… my shoulder is not fused properly, so sometimes people have issues stemming from that, others don’t, some are born with this ‘abnormality’ but there is no real cause or cure for it but the follow-up good news is that I will heal up nicely and go back to when I had no idea my shoulder was weird. So that was a relief. He did mention that due to this little issue, it would take a little longer for my shoulder to heal but apart from a few (really strong) pills, I should be okay. Yay!
Right after my X-rays, I took it upon myself to deem Tuesday August 31st a medical-sorting-out day and went to a vaccination station to get VAXED. No I wasn’t pro vaccine nor was I entirely against it for the reason that I didn’t want to have to deal with any side effects and longterm issues. I’m one of those people that don’t even get the yearly flu vaccines so the idea of just getting ‘something’ injected into my blood stream with no real idea as to why… was daunting as heck. But there is a huge part of me that also wants us to take the first steps to finding a healthier norm and maybe lowering my risk of getting covid, even though we know it’s not the cure, the prevention or fully a choice for us to make. If it was great for our health, doctors would be administrating and promoting it, but the government is doing that now… so it just gets my wheels turning.
In other news, my family got their jabs, so if the vaccine is going to turn us into zombies some time from now, I’d want to be on the same side as them, even if it was the losing side. I always seen myself as the zombie slayer rather than one of the zombies, but hey… stranger things have happened this year and last year, so I took my chances. I am currently a little doped up on meds but writing this with a lot less pain, so I’m thankful.
I hope you are all well, and if you haven’t noticed, I went rambling in this post like I tried to prevent. Guess it’s true what they say… nothing is 100% preventative if you really look at it.
