A new thing
We finally made it outside in the scorching heat and I felt at home.
YouTube is BACK!
Less with a bang.
More with a soft, rediscovery of a platform I’m wanting to explore in a different way than before.
Getting used to Happy
For those used to writing about the weight of depression, happiness seems hard to define as something solid.
A fear of falling
So I managed to lead one and a half routes.
Wait, one and a half?
Fontainebleau bouldering AKA falling a lot
Things I learned in Fontainebleau:
I am not good at bouldering.
I have a hilarious bouldering face.
I am really not good at bouldering.
I can’t even believe that a few weeks ago we were able to go out bouldering, able to play around in the sunshine without freezing our fingers off. (I’m still a little scared of falling, FYI).
Deep breaths, chilly toes, cold climbing sessions. March has been strange but it’s also been very beautiful.
An introduction to trad climbing
After months of (ongoing!) ankle recovery at indoor walls, we’ve navigated our way around the snowy Spring days and managed to find ourselves some time in the sun; time to finally test out the mountain of gear we have stashed away.
Woodland walks, stress, & the fear that comes with trying
Recently, it’s been very apparent that I am stressed.
I mean, I think I am stressed quite a lot of the time actually. There’s always something a little out of the ordinary happening in my life and it’s now at the point where these out of the ordinary things have become quite ordinary.
