(Rambling below; summary at bottom)
Apparently, spring break was last week. I missed it. I spent all week attending an intensive rock climbing instructor course. Now I really want all the rock climbing gear that I learned how to effectively use over the week. ...not that I will buy anything right now, I just REALLY want it all. xD
Basically, the course is a prep for the PCIA (Professional Climbing Instructors Association) certification exam. Hopefully, I'll be able to take the exam by the end of this semester. We went over many knots and their various applications, setting natural and/or artificial anchors that can be used for belaying and/or rappelling, some rescue/troubleshooting techniques and skills for belaying and rappelling (such as the counter ascent/descent, a skill that we learned when it was just above freezing and raining), managing multiple routes with client belayers, and how to interact with clients to ensure that they get the most out of the experience. And more, but I'll leave it at that. Really fun though. Information-intensive, but fun.
...There's an open position at a summer camp that was made known to the group on the last day. I kinda want to apply (and would likely get it), but I've already accepted an internship with an engineering company (which applies to my major).
I'm starting to see why people always talk about making your passion be your career, because I have little excitement for the internship and oodles of passion directed towards anything outdoors and active (and I'm really great with kids). But for this summer, at least, I have already committed to my internship. I'm gonna keep in touch with the summer camp, though. If engineering isn't my thing (it fits me mentally, but my passion lies elsewhere), I know that I would fit in with a summer camp quite well.
Anyways, back from the mountains and doing laundry on all my disgustingly smelly, worn-multiple-days clothes and backpack. Hopefully, I can do some art today and give myself a mental break.
tl,dr: My spring break wasn't much of a break, and I have a work-vs-passion dilemma. Hopefully art will clear my head.
