The things you learn

Last night, as I was hanging off the overhang at the rockwall at the Yishun SAFRA club, I realised what a quitter I was. I don't really put in my best effort on anything I do. I start out with all these good intentions, but along the way, lose enthusiasm or just give up. It's almost as if I'm afraid of putting in my best effort in case it ends up being a disappointment. That the best I can do is crap, or not as good as I thought it would be.

Just like that wall. I didn't make it to the top. After clearing the hard part, I got tired and just let go. Eh, I'm such a wuss. Oh well, there's always next week.

I have always wanted to try rock climbing. How much does it cost and do I need to be a member before I can use the facilities there?

Rock climbing's heaps of fun. It costs about $15 ($10 to use the wall at the Yishun SAFRA club, but if you climb often you can become a SAFRA adventure club member, then it's only $3.15 each time, $4-5 for equipment rental of harness and shoes) and no, you don't have to be a member to use the facilities. Go for it!
