a little over a month ago my friends and I hiked up Koko head in Oahu. We were originally going to Hike Diamond Head but the park was closing and they wouldnt let us hike up. So my friend told me about Koko Head and warned me that it was really intense. He suggested we not do it…but of course we said fuck it. We still had one hour of sunlight left and it was our last night in Hawaii! So we hopped on our mopeds and rode 10 miles to Koko head. We got there and realized it was HELLA steep! But the sun was setting soon and we wanted to be at the top before it set. So we started up… 5 minutes later our thighs were burning, we were sweating like crazy, AND we didnt bring water. I felt like dying but I didnt want to give up. You only live once and I wanted to make it to the top even it killed me. So we kept at it. Then a bridge came up that required us to jump over holes; one slip and you would have went rolling down the mountain. Still, we pushed through and crawled across the bridge. Then it got steeper. and steeper. and steeper. fast forward 15 minutes and there we were…standing at the top. We ran over to get a picture just as the sun was setting. darkness fell as we started out descent…

Looking back at that hour we spent on that mountain really motivates me. Those moments really symbolize my life. Over the past four years I have been fucked over so many times. Ive moved 9 times, lived with 10 different roommates, and was even homeless at one point. But somehow, someway I was able to get passed it all. Now here I am getting ready to pack up and move again for the 10th time in college and I have no idea where I am going to go. The next two months is soooooo uncertain and I am scared shitless. I dont know where I will be living. I dont know where I will be working. I dont know anything. But what I do know is that I will succeed. My personality does NOT know failure. When I reach those obstacles I WILL keep on going. I WILL keep on pushing. Why? because I know it is going to be better once I get to the top.
