    The Bus I have this friend named Ted. Ted has an old school bus all spray-painted and beat up looking. This in and of itself is not that big a matter. What makes this bus different is he attached the top half of a Volkswagon van on top of the bus. This bus has been around for around fifteen years or so and has looked about the same if not worse the whole time. See, Ted used to live in this bus. It's a project he has been working on for some time now. Numerous people have asked him why he won't get

    and I am still waiting for the bus to leave the station. I'm so excited about my trip to Texas. It seems very odd because I'm only on the bus with 3 other people; the bus driver and a mother and her young daughter. The Driver He is a short man with white wavy hair and a long white beard. He reminds me of Santa Clause but I am sure that Santa doesn't carry cigarettes in his shirt pocket like this guy does.

    Riding The Bus I walk over and stand amongst the crowd of students, where I will usually recognize the faces of people who have been riding the same bus as me during the semester.

    Background: Being a city bus, there seems to be about 50 or so seats, though some people prefer to stand if they are getting off rather quickly (about two or three stops). The space is more on the small side, but was not crowded at this moment and time due to the rain outside, which discourages people to take the bus. The most common objects are headphones, bus books, and smart phones with the passengers. The younger the rider, the more likely they are to have a smart phone unless they are with their

    I was once blind or should say I believed riding the Lynx bus was going to be scary and dangerous. I was riding the Lynx bus because my parents didn’t buy me a car, they didn’t want to wake up every morning to drop me off, and most importantly didn’t trust me with driving their car. Therefore, my only option was to ride the bus, and I was mad and overwhelmingly scared. To top it all off my parents said “It’s not that bad, once you know where you going then you won’t be scared anymore.” I thought
