Somehow, although I knew my parents had many friends in Williamsport,... ... middle of paper ... ...ttsburgh than I would have ever been able to in Williamsport. I learned how to ski and rock climb, things I became good at and still do today. I also suddenly had a deep appreciation for music.
we said our goodbyes to Martin and Adam who were too hungover to go to us for breakfast. Cesar was a champ though, and took us to a pho place, he called hit his second home afterwards we drop him off at his place and stared our 10 hour drive back to Marshalltown. It was sad to see the mountains disappear in the distance behind us. I though back on the weekend and how much fun it was and most of what we did was just the thing that you had to do your first time in Colorado. Looking back to where we all were a year or two ago when we were right out of high school, but we had no idea how this would turn out that in just a year or two halves of our very close fend group would be gone doing a new thing in a different state.
The one word that would describe myself would be the word “futuristic”. For as long as I could remember I would always plan my life ahead and set goals that would lead to having the successful future I’ve always planned to have. Through out my high school years, however, I thought less about the future and wasn’t as motivated to work hard for it as I should have. Senior year was a such wake up call for me because I was applying to colleges and worried about the whole process. I received my first letter and it was a letter of rejection.
Living in a place with pine tree and four seasons filled my every dream. Northern Arizona University was to be my escape from Chandler and my place for a new start. Once there I expected to find new friends, new and better classes, and a place where I could spread my wings. When the day finally came to make my big move to Flagstaff, I was more nervous than I ever imagined was possible. Questions continually came to mind.
I had accomplished the first two, but it seemed like the last one keeps getting to me. Prior to college starting, I had so much energy and so much confidence, but as time went on I slowly began to lose interest. I was so stressed out with working and not knowing if was going to have enough money to pay for my rent, car note, and take time out to study for school so then I became hopeless. College was starting not to become as important to me as it once was. I stopped attending college and spent additional time working.

With unemployment rate so high and businesses being so frugal, I have had some hard time working jobs that I was over skilled for. Three years ago... ... middle of paper ... ... start to lay workers off because it will help ensure a job. I have noticed that more college courses I receive the better of an employee I have become. These college classes have also opened my mind to pursue different career options that I felt were out of my reach. By adventuring into uncharted territory I was able to land a great job opportunity and triple my income.
The original offer was to join an Adventure Consultants team led by Rob Hall, a respected and well known guide, climb to base camp and then write a story on the commercialism that had penetrated this incredibly risky but addicting sport. Without much hesitation Krakauer accepted the offer but not to just go to base camp; he wanted the top. The expedition started out as predicted but an unexpected storm the day of the summit push turned this expedition into the most devastating expedition of all time. Krakauer was changed for life; an article on the commercialism surrounding the mountain would no longer suffice. Into Th... ... middle of paper ... ...mistakes that cost lives.
When I entered high school, I was very self-conscience about what I did and how I acted. This mental approach really dampened my creative side and it kept me from doing a lot of things I find fun now. By the middle of my sophomore year, I was ready to do something that would stir things up a bit and get the big wheels turning. Winterfest was only a week away and I, along with the rest of the school, was ready for a little break from the monotonous everyday routine. There was a competition scheduled for Thursday which was between different “air guitar” performances.
