Well it has been a while since I have last written, actually almost a year. Just to fill you in since last time, London and Paris were totally amazing. I have a new climbing project. It is a 5.11 lead route over the bubbles at Planet Rock. For those of you who don't know what that means, half way up the route becomes somewhat vertical to the ground and bulges out 3 times (looks like bubbles). Also a lead route is different from a typical climbing route that you can imagine because the rope is not attached at the top. The climber must bring the rope up with them, which helps practice for outdoor climbing. Another big difference with the lead route is if the climber falls, they will fall a farther distance than top rope climbing.

Last night I went to the rock climbing wall at lifetime in Troy. We were clebrating my friend Nik's birthday. We had the black lights and the disco ball going all night. It was a fun night and a great way to celebrate his birthday with my friends. Also, in 13 days I will be leaving for London and Paris! =]

|Yina and I in Frankenmuth =]|
On Thursday we received an exchange student from China. Her English was very good, and better than my Econ Professor's. On Friday they went shopping all day from 9 AM to 5 PM and all the students bought lots of things because they are cheaper here than in China. After that we had a huge Italian dinner. There were two types of sauces and three different types of pasta along with ficasa bread, vegetables and salad. For dessert we had my favorite apple pie. After dinner we went to the movies to go see Little Fockers. The movie was as good as the others. Then played a fun game of apples to apples. On Saturday morning I went to Boot Camp and Alisha and Yina went to see Black Swan. In Boot Camp we did strength circuits and ran on the treadmill; if you do not finish your run in the time they give you, there are consequences. Then we all went to Frankenmuth to show Yina the little German town. We went shopping and introduced Yina to the Pandora bracelets. Then we had the world famous chicken dinner until we could not eat anymore. The food was great just as usual. On the way back we stopped at Great Lakes Crossing to do more shopping. Yina needed another suitcase and loved the Forever 21. We were all exhausted and slept in the car, but stayed up late talking because it was her last night here. The morning came too quickly and I had to drag myself out of bed because I was exhausted from Boot Camp and lack of sleep. We said our goodbyes and they were gone.

Last night we went to Planet Rock. It was very crowed because of the discounted price. We climbed until everyone was tired and couldn't climb anymore. We got there around 7:30 and left around 10:30 when my hands and feet were raw and bleeding slightly. Everyone had a good climbing day and followed it up with bouldering when they started to get tired. After we went to Rams Horn and the service was terrible. It took a long time to get our food and then the waitress kept dumbing our table on others who were rude. I feel like I am getting sick which is not good because school starts on Monday.
