In other news, I approached a second company today about my ice axe after the first one said they had no interest. The farther time goes without finding a job the more I feel that maybe I should start a company making outdoor gear. Besides the ice axe I have ideas for a tent, pants, jackets, and carabiners. I've been going to this entrepreneur lunch series WPI has been having this past week and I decided I'd get a blog and put myself out there. I've also been learning about some of the basics of marketing and I've decided that when it comes to marketing over the internet or to climbers I would be great because that's what I am: a climber and an avid internet user.
Finally, I have a workout this afternoon with the track team and on my comeback from plantar fasciitis I'm so unsure about it. I mean it hasn't felt great this week and the two hour long run in the rain Sunday was not awesome for my immune system and I've been coughing all week.
All I want to do is go climbing right now, even though my foot will probably hate me. So I talked to Jeff and since the machine shop was off limits due to a professional visit we couldn't machine any ice axe today so we talked for ten minutes and the result is that we're going climbing tonight at 7 PM. Outside. I haven't really done any climbing in the dark so it should be a great learning experience. It was warm today (49F) so the snow has probably all melted and it will quite possibly be soaking wet on the rock. I don't really care I'm going anyway.
