As you know by now, Tim and I went on our annual fall climbing trip to the south three weeks ago. I thought that waiting to write about my vacation would make it easier for two reasons:
- I assumed that if I waited a little while, working on this post wouldn’t make me sad and want to quit life and just be a climbing bum
- I hoped that giving myself some extra time to reflect on the trip would result in me realizing that I had learned something valuable while I was away and would have something worth writing about
I was wrong on both counts. (And ended up waiting so long that this is hardly even relevant anymore. Ugh.)
I’m not saying I hate my normal life…I guess in the grand scheme of things, I have a pretty good thing going on here. But I’m a much better/happier/nicer person on vacation and as I sit here sifting through photos trying to decide which ones to share, I can’t help but be a little bitter about real life not being as awesome as climbing trip life.
I also don’t feel like I learned any good lessons while I was away. Part of the reason why I post so infrequently is that I never feel like I have anything inspiring to say and I don’t want to post something just for the sake of posting something.
So instead of trying to make something out of nothing and rambling on forever (like I usually do), you can just look at some of my favorite photos from the trip and get jealous instead…
I apologize for this post being so incredibly lame. And I apologize for not having anything more to say…here are a few more pictures from the trip, if you’re interested: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.766410894476.1073741830.21502407&type=1&l=57d8246cbd
