But, besides the annual Meet Your Religious Leader, Casino Night, dance party, Mentalist, etc., this year, while walking home from class, my roommate and I had ROTC recruiters challenge us to climb the rock wall.
Please note: I was wearing skinny jeans, a blouse, glasses, and sandals. Not exactly your everyday climbing attire. But, throwing caution to the wind (and sitting my glasses on the table), I began to climb the wall … barefoot. That was a first. As I was halfway to the top, I started to get tired. But, some classmates watching the whole event reminded me that I could do it, even barefoot.
And so, my roommate and I both made it to the top and even got lanyards out of the deal … if only I could have snagged another free tshirt! I know I need another one of those for my closet 😉
Can I tell you something? It’s great to be back in school. Sure, the classes are challenging & some assignments have already been grueling … but, there is something about sitting in a classroom in September that just feels right.
