climbing climbing climbing. climbing trip was AMAZING, learning how to make decisions that put myself first which included booking a separate flight a day earlier than the rest of that group. which paid off as I was able to reconnect with a friend down in Las Vegas that extra day. The original flight day, which everyone else planned on, ended up being delayed 6 hours so they basically lost a full day of climbing.
meanwhile i'm supposed to be climbing mount rainier later this month, and i realized i'm really only it to please the rest of the group. i don't really want to climb that mountain on the route we're planning this year...not sure what to do, as dropping out i think will piss them off a bit and impact friendships...but i am really trying to be less of a people pleaser and to keep making decisions that prioritize me (and community).
vaguely interested in a couple of girls. they’re both climbing, mountain biking, healthcare workers. so nothing new on that front past figuring out if I want to ask either of them out on a date and if that’s a good idea in the first place.
