I can’t seem to fall asleep so I will do something. I will tell you about my walk yesterday. Yesterday was a very warm day; I say warm and not hot because unfortunately it tends to get a lot hotter than just warm over here in Southern California. So basically, yesterday was a good day.
It was such a peaceful and refreshing walk though, one that let me ask a few questions to the man up above. Eventually, I started getting sweaty so the stroll got a bit annoying because my glasses kept sliding down my nose but it was worth it, especially when the gusts of wind rushed by and hugged me.
It would have been interesting if the wind had picked me up and taken me away. And then it would have sucked because it would have dropped me.
I got home eventually and was glad I had done this because normally it’s not something I would do. I hope to keep at it with these inspiring walks because besides them being inspiring, they’re healthy for me and make my heart happy. I hope this made sense. Like I said, I can’t seem to fall asleep but I am tired. Maybe it’s due to the fact that I don’t have to wake up early so I’m just like: ehhh I’ll just sleep in. Whatever the case may be I wish you all a happy weekend.
I went out to walk/explore in hopes of finding something to climb on to. When I say “something” I normally mean a building of some sort. I guess I could climb a tree if I really wanted to but it doesn’t give the sense of urban exploration when you’re in an urban area. I’m in Boston at the moment so I headed up north to Lowell, about a 45-50 minute train ride, where I used to live as a kid 10-11 years ago. This time I decided not to take my dslr because I was an idiot. Although it did make my bag lighter and more comfortable to walk around with it really was something I could’ve dealt with. I did have my phone though so that would have to suffice.
This is the Middlesex Community College Library. I did not take this picture; I found it online. I climbed to the rooftop thanks to the scaffold encompassing the building (It’s currently undergoing remodeling.) It was dark out so hiding in the buildings shadow was pretty simple. I’ve drawn in red where the scaffold was and the arrow is where the stairs/ladders to get to the top planks were. Unfortunately, since the main way to get up there was too exposed to the street as well as being lit by a wall lamp attached to the building, I opted climbing through the back. The exciting part is that I had to climb from the outside of the scaffold to get to the wooden planks at the top. Although It wasn’t that high compared to other buildings around, It was still pretty nerve wrecking getting up and over because even at that height I could get seriously hurt, especially not being able to see the bottom clearly at night. But oh well, my desire to do something exciting was satisfied. For now.
And now, prepare yourself for the pictures that I did take. I assure you they would have looked decent if it had been daytime.
