Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Climbing to the top

Santa going up! (web)2 We did it. Yes, we got to the top, and fell back down cheering and laughing. Last weekend we decided to go climbing and when we got there, we felt a little disappointed. Why? Because most of the climbers were kids, much younger than us. This is when I thought, "It is either now, or never!" Seize the opportunity, we had come here to climb, and we aren’t leaving without climbing!

There we stood, as the cool air brushed our faces, looking up at the peak. There is no obstacle any man cannot tackle! There is no wall that will stand in our way! We shall climb, and climb we shall! — to victory!

It was funny seeing the people in Maki looking over at us, we smiled but we couldn’t wave (sorry, our hands were occupied). I wanted to take a picture, but, that didn’t work either. It was honestly the best fun I have had…

in a VERY long time.

    hehe, i climbed one time here at a fair we call “spring fling” and once i got to the top i was so scared to come down and the guy kept on saying “just jump away” and i am thinking “NO WAY” i had to actually climb back down hehehe

    Do you apply that? I sure will, now that I have reached the top!

    afa yalla ma 3aleh, ra7at 3alech hal marra :p That photo wasn’t taken on the day we went, but the weather was great! lol @ don’t worry, people will be more amazed by the fact that you are actually going up and managing to climb! There was a asian girl, maybe between 16-20 and she was good! she went up all the way!

    lol! I know! I had that feeling too.. I wanted to climb down, but I put my faith in God, had a big smile, closed my eyes and jumped back.. lol! I got tugged by the rope but it was fun. You should do it again! :D

    You missed it ;/

    Thanks, if you’re scared of heights I’m sure this will help cure it because you’re tied to a very secure cable! :)

    lol, don’t tempt me! I’m planning on getting lessons, I’m just thinking about if I do will I have the time, and the second thing is that I’d probably need someone to tutor me. It is in my things to do list!

    Never say it is too late… so what if those who were climbing were kids? The good thing is that you didn’t miss out on it! Right?

    I invite you to come here to Colorado and try the true climbing. I never tried it but I kinda love hiking and backpack walking.

  27. N. |

    I’d love to try that! Probably after I work a little on my forearms! I figured that is where all the power is coming from for mountain climbing.

  28. Zia |

    I have rock climbed once in my life, i remember my school having a wall in the gym. I tried it, but vaguely remember if i ever reached the top:/

    although i wud like to chek out the wall at marina waves..but i know i never will:P
    Good for u n 4 ur friends too;) inshalla next stop are the Himalaya Mts.!

  35. N. |

    I doubt I’d want to get to the Himalaya Mts. simply because it is too cold there :p You should at least go take a look you might get motivated enough to try it out! why not.
