Climbing since September, and I feel ten times stronger all over my body. Check the traps! :)
Anonymous asked: I am 18 and in a long distance relationship with my current girlfriend. Do you have any advice I feel like us jumping on planes every 6 weeks is getting hard. Especially for her. I was hoping for some advice because I remember you saying a while back you take it day by day. Wanting to know how you do it? Glad to see you are happy with your bf.
While I wasn’t exactly in one in the instance you’re referring to, and I’m currently very very single… In any of the long distance relationships I’ve been in, and in any situation where there were long times of separation, I always tried to do exactly what I said: Take it day by day.
You can only make money so quickly. You can only see them so often. Work. Familial obligations. Bills. There are limiting factors that you can’t easily change. So instead of stressing about all of that which has always and will continue to always be there, stressing you out and keeping you apart…take great joy in those things that keep you together. Text messages/emails, phone calls/video calls, and every minute of the visits you do get.
Love freely and wholly, but without that tight umbilical cord lashed around your partner. You can live without being around each other all the time. If you can’t…perhaps you should consider moving. Or breaking it off (though the former is more appealing, I’m sure).
Did you know that Tanzanite was discovered in 1967? The legendary New York jewelers Tiffany & Co were the first to promote Tanzanite as a fine gemstone.
Legend has it that it was Masai cattle herders who first noticed Tanzanite some 40 years ago after a fire caused by lightening burned areas in Tanzania. The herders noticed that brown zoiscite crystals had turned a deep blue-purple due to the heat from the fire! So cool!

Anonymous asked: Hi! I apologize if this question has already been asked many times before. (I'm betting it has, but you have a very busy blog and searching through it all is difficult, sorry sorry sorry.) Anyway, um, I have a healed septum piercing. I got it done about five years ago, and I was always told it was crooked, but just didn't care enough to fix it. I totally regret that now, because I would like to wear it again and have it straight. What can I do to fix a healed crooked septum piercing?
If it’s healed, you can’t change the already existing channel. Your only good option is to remove any jewelry and have the piercing redone!
How to make a camping stove out of a can! Holy crap! How awesome!
Anonymous asked: What's the smallest gauge you can make conch pegs at?
I could probably fashion something as small as 8g…but it’s very hard on my hands, so I generally prefer to make only 6g or larger.
Anonymous asked: I go to college up in Northern Minnesota and missed out when you were in Minneapolis :( Are you going to come back to the Twin Cities anytime soon?
I dunno! I had a lot of fun while I was out there…but I need to stay relatively stationary until the end of the year, and I hear that’s when they will have added a pretty awesome new piercer to their crew!
I say your best course of action is probably to bug them about letting me come back until they finally cave. Hopefully it coincides with beautiful weather like it did this last time around! ;P
…or just get pierced by one of them. Because they’re super rad.
