0:32 I really wish I could’ve climbed all the way up this amazing needle climbing wall, but unfortunately, I didn’t have my own ropes. Just bouldering was great too, though!
0:59 This is the kind of volunteer work me and my mom did at Alpe d’HuZes. Mostly cutting food (for the cyclists) and cleaning stuff, which someone has to do!
1:13 At the convention centre on top of Alpe d’Huez was a wall where you could write things to your loved ones who are fighting cancer or have already lost the battle, or to anyone cycling or walking up the mountain!
3:02 Catching crabs on the Dutch islands is kind of a family tradition for us. After catching enough of them, we empty the bucket and see which crab gets back into the water first. A crab race! I wish I had some footage of me catching crabs, but oh well, you can’t have everything.
4:29 (Spoilers coming up!) I was a mess after finally seeing The Fault in Our Stars movie. Not just because you’re supposed to be a mess, but everything about Augustus reminded me of my brother. He had the same type of cancer, also ended up in a wheelchair, and Ansel Elgort’s face kinda looks like his in a way. That night, I spent hours reliving the 5 months I had with my brother after he was diagnosed and I think it was good for me!
4:44 This is a bunch of my old schoolmates from high school graduating, including my boyfriend. These are the last people left that I went to school with and it was all very emotional, especially knowing that I should’ve graduated with some of them. I’m glad I was there, though. I’ve had a hard time dealing with the fact that I’m not going through my teenage years like everyone else, but it’s just something I have to accept, and experiencing this definitely helped!
