The Posts Will Now Commence!

So if you’ve been following my posts then you know I’ve been on vacation for the last few days in an area without cell reception of any sort of wi-fi. That area wold be Yosemite, the same place that a huge wildfire is still burning (that was an interesting experience).

You can expect regular posts to resume and once this photo series from the 4th of July has been completed then I will start a new series with some pictures that I took from my travels in Yosemite.

Also, as a quick update, I’m going to be getting busy with work and various other projects in the coming week so my posts will probably be shorter than usual but I’ll try to have stuff every other day for you guys to read.

Thanks for being patient and thanks for reading!

Going On Vacation!

So as the title may lead you to believe, I’m going on vacation. I’ll be taking a nice trip over to Yosemite for a few days. Because of that I won’t be able to keep up my posting so I’ll just have pictures going for the time I am gone. However after I get back I will hopefully have some great pictures and stories to share with everyone.

I hope everyone has great week and finds something fun to do!

One Handhold At A Time

I’ve recently started rock climbing at a local indoor rock climbing place.

Now I’ve never rock climbed before, except at one of those theme park walls. I am also not the most physical person in the world. My idea of exercising is going up a few flights of stairs. I am by no means out of shape, okay I’m out of shape, but I have a good weight.

Let me get back to my topic. I started a week ago and have been going every day for a few hours each day since.

I have to say, it is really fun. It’s a great sport and I can see myself steadily progressing. Every day I can climb longer and more difficult routes. It’s great to be able to walk around the room and see climbs that you were previously not able to do but after some work you achieved it and now you are able to do it.

I bring my GoPro as well and I have gotten some really cool shots. Over these last few days I have advanced many levels (as far as I can tell) For those of you who know climbing terms, today I successfully topped out on a 10c and I’ve only been able to do a V3. I’m working on a V4 and a 10d right now.

I suggest that you try rock climbing. It’s a little expensive for my taste but I’m having a great time trying to build upon my successes.

If you love to see a visual representation of your progression then I would recommend that you try it out. Check out if there are any gyms in your area that offer it, I’m sure that there might be one that you haven’t seen before :)

Running Out Of Time

Do you ever have that feeling of helplessness that comes with an approaching deadline? The closer you get to the deadline the more weight the work you have to get done seems to weigh you down, even though you have been steadily progressing.

It doesn’t even have to be a deadline that has a physical thing to turn in at the end. You could be going somewhere and you need to be there but every second the outcome seems to be farther away from the desired one.
This relates back to my post about time and how we can never get it back but I think that the feeling you have when you are running out of time is something that is hard to achieve in any other situation. The combination of dread and guilt that you feel. Dread for the guilt I think. Guilt because you most likely have an obligation and you will be guilty if you can not fulfill that obligation.
I think that this is an interesting phenomenon and wanted to share my thoughts on it. Thanks for reading!
