Being merely a infant in blog years, I have yet to establish what exactly this blog is for. Perhaps for pictures. Perhaps for tirades. Or perhaps for my own entertainment. I know for sure that this blog will be VERY random!

Everest: Beyond the Limit

The mini series on Discovery Channel, Everest: Beyond the Limit, has brought me back to my slight obsession with said mountain. This Sunday at 5pm Discovery is going to have a marathon of the entire series, if you would like to catch it.

There is something about the mountain that is bewitching, and not just mount everest, but all mountains. I am a skier. I have been skiing since I was 6. Maybe I sound weird by saying this, but something comes over me when I am skiing. No matter how dangerous the weather is getting, I want to stay out there. I want to conquer the mountain. It gives me power while at the same time I feel so small. I love it!

The article gives a great insight to what is presently happening to Mount Everest. It is very tragic. The author makes a lot of good points on how the climbers that go to Mount Everest are changing. Take a look at it!

My roommate got rush tickets to go see Hairspray last night! I had a test today, but I couldn't reject to offer!I had a blast. I am so glad I went. It gave me this "Broadway High" that gave me enough energy to stay up 'til one in the morning to finish studying for my test.

Actually, I saw Hairspray in New York a little less than a year ago, but I love to see the tours to compare it to the ones actually on Broadway. I thought they would have to change a few things since our stage at the Phillips Center is smaller than most stages, but no. This tour was was exactly like the Broadway one. Actually, I would say that they even had a bit more energy. Granted, the Broadway cast had better singers in actors (they were still amazing!), but, none the less, I really enjoyed the cast last night!

If it is coming your way, I would take up the opportunity to see it. Rush tickets aren't that expensive ( I paid 10 dollars)!
