Today's Lucky Number: #66

I'm back from my weekend at Smith rock, and I'm sorer then hell. I never notice how worn I am until I get home and am able to relax.
Rundown on this weekend including highlights:
I went out to Smith rock this weekend, for a fun filled few days climbing all that nature had to offer. And by that I mean I watched some awesome rock climbers send multitudes of problems. I myself tried but a few that were on the easier side, and only finished one.
It was my first time top roping, and also my first time climbing outside. I'm keen on the top roping, mostly because of my own laziness, and my desire for rest sessions in the middle of my climb. I'm not so keen on outdoor climbing, just because I feel more like I'm going to pull a rock from the wall and fall to my death upon sharp and pointy hillside.(An irrational fear I might add, as I am securely anchored to my belay-er and wouldn't fall. Unless the plummeting rock fell onto my belay-er. In which case I would probably fall.)(That's a very unlikely scenario.) and I did like it because I could decide what the start was, where I put my hands... There were way more options and it took some extra brain power. I can see what Jeff's excited about in it, it's definitely a different experience from climbing on plastic.
John was an amazing rock monster out there. Roaring and scrambling his way to the top of many a climb, I was really impressed with him this weekend. I did a little bit of white knuckling when he led a climb, but I was obviously scared for nothing, because I know he's a fantastic climber. It's nice to watch him get so into the problems, working them out, powering his way up them, just generally being an athletic beast. And then on the other hand, I was the one rubbing his sore back, and kissing his torn palms. It's nice to see anyone from two angles like that, especially the one you love. And don't even get me started on his job as moral supporter. That guy makes me stick with it like nobody else. It's just that I like it when he says he's proud of me. :P
So there was 3 other kids on the trip, Jackson, John, and Andrew; and two teachers, Jeff and Jordia (Also newlyweds, just FYI.) Later on John's parents showed up, which I liked because they're the ones that helped me get started climbing in the first place.
So there was lots of climbing, camping, and laughing. John and I slept in the same tent, (Thank god for small favors, because it would have been freezing in a tent all by myself.) and we zipped our sleeping bags together so we could have one big one and huddle together for warmth. (No, there was no frisky stuff, gimmie some credit.) Although I can tell that John really has me around his finger, I even like when he wakes me up in the middle of the night. At least he does it with little kisses. Tee hee. I'm torn about sleeping in my own bed tonight, because on the one hand, it's going to be very comfortable, and on the other, I will have to sleep without him.

In other news:
I take my PSAT on Wednesday
I'm getting "Excellent"s in all my classes as of midterms
My room is super clean and smells like fresh laundry
Both my knees have little round bruises all over them
I sunburned my cheeks just a little, so I look like I'm always blushing
I have a bug bite on my butt (How did a bug even GET there?)
My cleavage showed a little in my school picture, so they airbrushed it out
(Which is too bad, it was probably a nice boob shot)
I'm supposed to be knitting scarves for the homeless (I've already done two...) but all I want to do now is abandon my current homeless scarf and start one for myself
I'm reading The Plague by Albert Camus
I still have to unpack, and all I feel like doing is sleeping...

Yesterday was the all school field trip. We went up to Vancouver and we played in some river/lake thing. I went swimming in my underwear in front of a whole bunch of people. John and I were wearing underwear, but Louie, Shelby and Jake were all naked. And they froze their asses off. Sometimes having a layer of body fat is awesome. I realized that I like knowing who I'm going to sit next to on a school bus. Because I've never really had a best friend, but now I have John. We cuddled in the bus seat and shared earphones. We sang along to our favorite songs and snuggled. Everyone else on the mother fucking bus was so fucking loud and obnoxious though. It was not so fun. But yeah, and I finished knitting a scarf, and I ate hamburgers, and wandered around, dodging cow pies. I talked to teachers and played with a blind dog. But mostly I spent time with John and Marjorie and Shelby. And everybody else in that group. Whoof.
I finished reading Dark Tower 5, and I just started reading Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonders. I spend a lot of time reading lately. Oh and I have to read the next section of Genesis this weekend, for homework.
I don't see very much of my parents these days. My mom hasn't really been interested in family time, and Dad is too busy. It's annoying, but I can't cut their throats for not paying enough attention to me. I just get jealous, and lonely sometimes.

"Today I hope that my collection agents take a break from tirelessly trying to track me down, and I hope someone touches them on the elbow and says, "God you have lovely eyes." I hope they come home tonight and they don't even get in the door before someone is ripping their clothes off and fucking them crazy. I hope they fall asleep exhausted and empty and full of senseless optimism for the future. I hope this for you, too. I hope that you are out shopping and, without knowing why, you have to run to the bathroom and touch yourself. I hope that you finish with your brow sweaty and you are short of breath and I hope you are embarrassed but strangely proud of yourself. "

In case you don't read 'A Softer World'
I wanted to share this with you.

So I got back from Seattle day before yesterday. It was a really good trip... I spent time with John and his family, and lots of time with his little sister, Olivia. She's such a sweet little girl, it was really nice.

Yesterday I found a good pair of boots, and I'm going to pick them up on Friday. I looked all over for a good pair of boots, so I'm glad I finally found a pair.

Other then that, not much has changed lately...

Today John drew on my back. It was us roasting marshmallows over a lake of fire.

JOKES FOR NERDS!!

Today's Lucky Number: #60

So... I'm going to Seattle this weekend. Should be nice to see my grandpa, and everything. I wish John was going with me though. But then I guess I wish that John was always with me, which maybe sounds a little clingy. But I can't help that JohnShaw is awesome. Sorry, anyway. So I'm going to Seattle this weekend... Woooo! I'll need to bring my knitting and lots of books. John gave me this book, An American Century. So maybe I'll read that. Oh shit I have library books to return. Better return those bitches before they rack me up with more fines... Hmm I wonder if Dad will let me borrow his laptop... That would be awesome.

Haven't done any art in a long time. But I did knit myself a hat. Two actually. I like them a lot.
