Mabini 2017

As soon as I got word that we were going scuba diving, I was excited as hell. I've gone snorkeling before, but of course it's different with the whole oxygen tank and everything. When I was finally able to get into the water, I honestly panicked a bit. I consider myself an above average swimmer, but with the waves, the oxygen tank, and my goggles constantly fogging up, I found it extremely difficult. Needless to say, I had lots of fun still since I got to cross out something from my bucket list.

Okay next thing I wanna bring up was our camp out. My parents were actually telling me to bring a jacket because it'd be cold up there but I said I didn't want to anymore since my bag was almost full. (We didn't get to climb due to the weather so it was kind of pointless trying to keep my load as light as possible) And boy, did I regret my decision. Literally every part of my body, and parts of my body that I didn't even know existed was cold to the bone. I tried staying near the people cooking to get some warmth but it barely helped LOL. I thought it wasn't gonna get any worse, but once again I was proven wrong the next morning. I just wanted to stay in the tent the entire morning, but I was hungry so whatever, might as well just be cold than cold and hungry at the same time.

Even though I was extremely hesitant to go on this trip because I had previously injured myself during Muay Thai, I'm still glad I did! I'm also very disappointed, as well as glad I didn't get to climb either. I brought the same old running shoes I had during the last climb and I was already imagining myself full of mud again.
