Default Very close...

1 block north from SE Hawthorn (main?). Travelling west toward Downtown. I had my headphones on this morning, just cruising took a quick left turn toward Hawthorn...
There was a car being me traveling some 30MPH, I turn so quickly without thinking of looking behind me (I usually don t listen to music but this band The Velvet Teen is so good you know?) that it took the driver and me a few seconds afterwards to realize how close we got from collision. No time for beep beep, nothing.
It was definitely my fault for not paying more attention; my free advice is to remember to look behind you before turning left onto a street. Yes I know so simple, so dumb of me and sometimes everyone gets distracted.
