"An Unexpectedly Perfect Thursday: Climbing, Reunions, and New Beginnings"

Mar 28, 2024 - 9:20pmSummary: I had an incredible day that felt just like a weekend, even though it was only Thursday. After many years, I reunited with my friend Will Knox, who's back in San Diego. We spent the evening climbing and catching up on everything we've missed over the years, which was really fulfilling. It's amazing to have someone I resonate with deeply in the same city again. Will has grown a lot and we share many interests, including music, which he's eager to introduce me to more of. Our conversation could've gone on for hours, and I'm excited about further developing our relationship and introducing him to my other friends, hoping to integrate him into our climbing outings and social circle. Additionally, the day was packed with fun and food; we grabbed beers at White Labs Brewing, appreciating the unique yeast varieties in their beers, followed by a meal and more beer at Ballast Point. Earlier, I enjoyed lucha libre for lunch with Kim and Jordan, and started the day with rice and beans for breakfast. It's rare to have such perfect days where everything aligns so well, making me extremely grateful. I'm looking forward to the future, but for now, I'm just soaking in the joy of an unexpectedly perfect Thursday.
