As we get closer and closer to the present, I can remember a bit more of what I was doing with my time. That isn’t to say I saw doing a lot – who is doing a lot with everything going on in the world? – but at least now I can sort of remember what I did throughout the month.
And September was the month that my sister and brother in law got me into bouldering. If you don’t know what bouldering is, I didn’t either until relatively recently. I tried it once a couple of years back when I visited by sister in England, but before then I’d never heard of it.
Bouldering is climbing, but without ropes. No harness, no ropes or tethers to hold you onto the wall. Just your own strength to keep yourself on the wall. And oh boy do you need incredible finger strength. I’ve always prided myself on my upper body strength, but it’s been years since I could easily hold my entire body up for an extended period of time. I might have been able to do pullups at one point in my life, but my years of climbing everything in sight have long passed. Bouldering is much more challenging than I’d expected going into it and I’m constantly amazed at what some people are able to do.
Heck, go check out CaptainCutloose, ShaunaCoxsey, or any of the other amazing athletes that are out there.
In regards to reading, this month was slightly better than August. Certainly different from the reading I normally talk about, but better nonetheless. It would hard to be worse, after all…
I’ve rambled enough about non-book related things, so here’s this month’s review.
But first, obligatory pictures of Yzma:
