Day 5 | Emily Bleigh
Well, let me first start off by saying I’m happy to be alive. Literally, I almost died three times yesterday. The “hike” we went on was a cliff with trees. I slid down the whole way, and got cut up pretty good. I got bit by fire ants too. Becka fixed me though. Our tour guide Johnny is the only reason I’m still alive. I cried three times on that mountain, and will never do that again. When I got to the bottom, I laid on the rocks because I couldn’t even walk. I went to bed at like six, so that’s why I didn’t blog last night. Today I’m doing better! We worked on the boat some more today. Trey and I helped build the rock wall. Lane, Courtney, and I made lunch, and we were told it was good. After lunch, work was really slow. There wasn’t much to do unless you were on the top of the boat. After the little “hike” incident, I’m not getting on anything high for a while. One thing I do want to say is the bible study last night was great. Bill was talking about being in bondage to something. Well, he just so happened to mention one of the biggest causes of stress in my life. He said people can be bondage to their grade. An example he gave is “I need to get a 24 on my ACT to get in to WVU.” That is straight on for me. I feel like that controls me. I am going to try to do better though. Mom, I’m okay, I took pictures of my cuts so you can see. Love you!
