Oh my good lord there are so many holiday cookies and dough and pies and cupcakes and sugared I-don’t-even-know-whats, I feel like I just gained 5lbs from scrolling through my dash.
Unfortunately I will not be going home to New England for the holidays as viciously thirsty customers at Starbucks will be wanting their green tea frappacinos with an extra pump of sweetener or their extra hot, no foam, no whip, nonfat mocha, or even their white mocha marble macciato with Bill’s venti pikes place with heavy whipping cream. (Fun fact, those are actual regular’s drinks but they are the awesomely nice regulars.)
(Oh stop it starbucks, you’re making me blush.)
This means I won’t be able to see my family for the 2nd Christmas in a row… blahhh. I’m pretty bummed about that but the money will be able to help out the trip that will make it all worth it…
HUECO MOTHAFACKINNN TAAANKKSS!!!!!

January 2nd-10th. Hell. Yes. There really is no satisfactory way to express the level of excitement I am feeling about this trip. Basically when I was 14 or so, I saw a picture of Hueco in Urban Climber and instantly fell in love. I never traveled for outdoor climbing (total, self-admitting gym rat here) and this has been the first opportunity thats presented itself for me to go.
Thats right. I’ve never been to Hueco. N00B STATUS!! But HOLYY GODDD THE MECCA AWAITS!!! I’m frothing at the mouth… well not really but I might as well be.
In the meantime I’ve been focused on getting my knee up to speed. It still hurts from the Spot comp so I’m gonna get one of those knee sleeves to stabilize the tendon. Hopefully it’ll feel at least a little better, if not 100% by the time I leave.
If anyone has any Hueco MUST-DO’s, let me know!! I want to get on Purple Flowers, Martini Roof, Diaphanous Sea, New Religion, aaand… one more I’m not thinking of but send’ em in!! Gotta get a solid list here!
