I hate breaking promises to myself. I went to hike Black Mountain in January just before Spring semester started and I never made it to the top. I told myself I'd go back again and make it to the top. Not sure that'll happen. I feel like a failure...at life. I really need to get back there and try again. My goal is to try to make the climb before my birthday which gives me about 6 weeks. I have a few friends that I'm considering asking . Hopefully something will come through for me to make it back there. It means everything to me and maybe I'm putting too much pressure on myself to make it back there...but I have to. I just do.
