I’ve been spamming you lately with posts for my class project. Sorry. I debated creating a blog specifically for that and ultimately was like “no, I think it’s cool to use mine and show people what I’m up to with school”. And that is that.
BUT today it’s not for school (yay). Today is me posting about one of my favorite activities in this wonderful life.
I’ve been hiking as much as I can (so as often as I can escape from school and adulting to the mountains) and just genuinely enjoying the wilderness. I wanted to share some pictures from recent hikes on the blog. I’ll throw in some quotes for y’all as well! We all know how much I dig quotes.
“There is no threshold that makes us greater than the sum of our parts, no inflection point at which we become fully alive. We can’t define consciousness because consciousness does not exist. Humans fancy that there’s something special about the way we perceive the world, and yet we live in loops as tight and as closed as the hosts do, seldom questioning our choices, content, for the most part, to be told what to do next.” – Dr. Robert Ford
“It was good for a while, being empty. I didn’t hurt anymore. But as time went on, it was like I could hear myself begging from far away for permission to come back.” – Myra McEntire
“And if I asked you to name all the things that you love, how long would it take for you to name yourself?”
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” – Maya Angelou
“The Edge…There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others-the living-are those who pushed their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still Out there.” ― Hunter S. Thompson
“Perhaps as you went along you did learn something. I did not care what it was all about. All I wanted to know was how to live in it. Maybe if you found out how to live in it you learned from that what it was all about.” – Ernest Hemingway
“She remembered who she was and the game changed” – Lalah Deliah
