So yesterday was my second time climbing top rope. Wohoo !!! I only did one route, because I was already a bit tired from trying to do some bouldering. Not too successful, they haven't been too nice with the supposedly "easy" ones. Good thing we've made new ones. 

Anyway it went sort of well. There are two boulder problems that I can do now, and two rope routes. Probably a good start. Can't do much before my arms are tired anyway. And I need to keep up the weight lifting at home. My arms need more strength. But other than that, I'm happy and quite pleased.

And here's a random picture from one of my walks. Just for fun.

Randomeness, the cake.

Because I've had my B-day.
A week ago now, and ofc there had to be cake.
Completely Vegan friendly also.
Very nice.

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone."

This is my new favorite quote. I think it has some sense to it. And I'm getting closer, I can feel it. The lines are getting blurrier by the day and time. Soon I'll be all over it and god knows what can happen then. It's gonna be awesome. 

Today my harness came. I'm so excited. I've tried it on, hang tested it too. And for a while now I've been sitting in the couch practicing to tie the knot and to tie in into my harness. It went very well I think. Hopefully I'll be testing it out on the wall tomorrow. Yes yes yes yes. Awesomes in the making.

Shit's going on.

Been a few days. I've had my B-day and my foot is way better. Finally got a set of climbing shoes and I've already tried them on. They are, as expected, a bit on the tight side. But I'll grown into them. Sugar bought them for me as a B-day gift.

We went to the hall yesterday. First time using them on the wall. And I realised quite soon that it isn't enough with just the shoes. So today I ordered a harness too. I'm a little bit surprised my self. But I think I can do this, I will do this.

I can hardly wait. We're supposed to go again tomorrow. Too bad the harness won't be here by then. But I think it should be here before the weekend. It only has to travel from Stockholm. Too bad the hall is summer closed on weekends now.

The Chestnut mystery.

I found a tree that intrigued me.

Some kind of chestnut, but not the "everyday" kind you see here. A search online suggested that it's a Rödblommig hästkastanj. Or in eng, Red horse-chestnut. Never seen them before. It also said "common in Swedish gardens". But I don't think so. Could be tho that maybe I just haven't been in the right gardens.

Anyway. Before this one, I've only seen the ones that had white blossoms. Horse-chestnut I think. Would be nice to see a real Chestnut tree tho. The eatable kind. This city is just one the edge of their "comfort zone". I'm told that they like to live in zone 1-2. And this place is 2-3. So I guess it's not impossible at least.

City Bitches.

So yesterday I got the note from the school, telling me that my city turned down my application for the education I applied for. I'm pissed. They tell you that you have all the means necessary to re-educate your self into another kind of work. And then they just turn down your application. Bitches. Although I was prepared for this answer. I'm still not happy about it. My hope for this winter is fucked. Better start thinking about an alternative.

I did go out. It was lovely weather. Sugar found my lost sunglasses. And I burned my shoulders and neck fairly badly in the sun. Watched topless guys climb rocks and had a chat with a girl I've seen in the gym before. Very nice. All in all, a very awesome day. Could only have been better if I had been able to climb my self. But that time will come. Now, I have stuff to do. Give my arms some workout and take my ankle for a rehabilitating walk. And maybe sit down in the sun and do nothing for a while. Just because I can.

Hello Iris.

Can't type today. I'm out living my life. I think. Unless it's raining heavily. Then I'm probably parked in front of the tv watching climbing with Sugar. But either way. Here's a picture of a lovely lady I met on a walk recently.

@Sugar's place..

Or rather, in his window.
A random generic red Geranium that he's fostering for me. Seems to be doing just fine. :) Blossoming an all.

My first...

So, yes. Went climbing on Tuesday anyway. Very proud. It wasn't easy to start climbing with many people there and Sugar and his friends watching. But I did it. Very awesome. Started working on a problem I haven't done before. And ofc, one unprepared fall later.... a twisted ankle. My first climbing related accident.

You have no idea how pissed I am that this happened. Good thing Sugar still had his "aircast" from when he got injured. So I borrowed that. And I didn't hurt my ankle as bad as he did, so it won't take me half a year to get back up again. But I'm counting on probably two weeks or so at least. Can only wait and see I guess.

On one hand I don't want to baby my self too much. But on the other, I don't know how careful I should be with this. Crap cakes and bitch buns. I'ma go and pop my foot up now and rest a bit. On the bright side it's a holiday on Friday so it's an extra long weekend. Three whole days of Sugar instead of two. :) Yey !!!

*Poop*, the update.

Because i can.
And now in a much better mood although still alone, and apparently it's raining outside. So yes the hall will probably be full. Shit happens. Anyway, I decided to perk my self up by getting a haircut. Quick and easy since I do it my self. And now I've given the blog a face lift too. Gonna need to take a new selfie for it tho. Since my profile pic is old and inaccurate. Oh well. If only I could lose my headache now. 


Today is climbing day. But the weather outside isn't overly peachy. Which means there will probably be a lot of people at the climbing hall. *poop* With a little luck, most of the might be busy with the top ropes. But I'm still a bit hesitant to climb. Stupid mind. Silly me.

I got stuck thinking about my future again last night, well, almost all day yesterday. So I'm not overly peachy either. Feels like my head is trying to make more problems where there really is none. At least not as big as my head want's it to be. So I'm having a somewhat bad day.

Gonna listen to some music and relax and see if maybe I can get into a better mindset before Sugar quits work and it's time to go. One can always hope.

Oops !

A bit of randomeness from last Thursday. ( Because I still can't let it go lol.) Apparently at some point, I managed to hit Sugar with my camera. *cough* In the face. *cough* I had it in a string around my neck. We didn't think much of it after that. But I had to take a pic of it now. I guess it hit him in just the right wrong spot. Now he kinda looks like he's been in a fight. Oops...

I did it again !

Mwahaha. I went climbing again yesterday. :) Indoors this time, at the climbing gym Sugar always goes too. It was almost empty when we came there so I went for it. And happy I did. I even got Sugar and one of his friends to build a problem that was easy enough for me to climb.

Tried not to climb too much. Didn't want to end up in pain as I can get when I do stuff. But it went well. Practically no pain at all, and hardly any workout pains today either. I'm almost a bit disappointed. But it's good to know. Next time I can climb a bit harder without worries.

I'm happy I've finally started climbing. I definitely think this is a sport for me. Much better than swimming. I agree, swimming isn't bad. But I think the cold water gives me more pain, so a sweaty sport is probably a lot better. I hate being cold anyway and water has never been my best friend.

But, back to the climbing. I think, if things keep going well like this. That I'll start trying top roping soon too. Gotta stay positive and keep working.
