When I Tried to be Peter Parker

This post was supposed to be entered yesterday night.

But as it turned out, I was too tired to do so.

So I am posting this today.

Yesterday, I had my first experience of rock-climbing. Or wall-climbing, whatever you prefer. And it was amazingly fun! I wore a harness, connected myself to the pulley, and as long as there is someone pulling the rope after you, all you need to do is climb your way up!

So after a day, I find my arms aching. Because basically, one pulls one body with the arms, alternating with the steps.

Well, I guess that ends my vacation. An aching episode after a fun three hours of rock-climbing.

This Tuesday, it is back to regular programming. I have two classes every Tuesdays and Thursdays, and I have two classes every Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Oh well, I better need some rest. I have tons to read and write come this semester.


  1. I tried this before but couldn't even go one step higher. Nahirapan ako. Dahil siguro sa bigat ng katawan ko (although hindi ako obese/overweight). Kelangang mag-exercise muna. Hehe. At klase na kayo ulit. Goodbye ka muna sa mahabang pahinga. Turo at basa na naman... Good luck!

  2. me too, i still have to try this exercise. Maybe i was just traumatised with the experience i had before with cave exploration in the Mountain Provinces.

    But I will do it soon - i know.

    Happy New year!

  3. Wall climbing, eh? I'll have to try that sometimes as well. Now, if only I could manage to somehow have the funds and the time simultaneously, and not blow it on all that other stuff I want to do...
