Rock Climbing

I went rock climbing by the Potomac River yesterday, which was the most physically challenging thing I have ever done in my life.

Everytime I hook the climbing gear on, I would hear a voice in my head--why did you put yourself in this situation! And sure enough, the very first time I tried, I totally got stuck half way through (or maybe just 1/5 through) the top. There's nothing I could hold on to, and the river is flowing underneath. Someone had to assist me at that point, but I eventually made it to the top. The picture on the buttom was my third try to climb, which went pretty well, but I was still very very nervous.

So today, I spent almost an hour just to get out of bed because my whole body is in pain. I am proud of myself though, and I changed all of my profile pictures in the cyberspace to show-off lol My friend John Chen wrote me a comment on myspace--"wow thats a cool profile pic, it looks very mission impossible you know, if you can't find a normal job, you can always get one of those top secret agent jobs like tom cruise."

Thanks for the comforting comment, and thanks for those who introduced me to climbing.
