Forums & Foliage
This past Thursday I went to the Free Market Forum. It was a valuable experience. I intended to post about that. Unfortunately, I couldn't come up with a post to express it well, so I will just have to say that it was good.
Friday was all the conference from dawn to well after dusk. The next morning Andrew and Lee, the two other students who went to the conference, drove back without our professor who found a ride with someone else. By the time we got back, I was pretty tired and planned on not doing much for the rest of the day.
Kevin, one of my housemates though, asked if I wanted to go rock climbing in the Pocket wilderness area. I've had a lot of opportunities to climb over the last few years, but always turned them down for one reason or another. Yesterday was beautiful though, so I finally decided to take him up on it.
As it turned out, I was about as bad at the climbing as I figured I would be. After that we went repelling though, which was a lot more enjoyable, especially considering that we were doing it during peak leaf season.
